One of my favorite spa experiences ever was a quick trip to the Shangri-La Vancouver for a spa day with my pal Nancy Brown of Writing Horseback. We were about to board our Rocky Mountaineer Train, but wanted a bit of relaxation before a week winding through Canadian Rockies. I found their spa experience to be one of the most exclusive any where. An entire suite is dedicated to your time at the spa. I felt so transformed and restored after my visit. Now, you can experience some new restorative treatments they are offering. Check it out below!

Shangri-La Vancouver and its award-winning CHI, The Spa is very pleased to announce an official partnership with Bowen Island’s Sangre de Fruta Botanical, exceptional organic products for the face, body and hair inspired by secrets of holistic indulgences, and created from the fruit of the earth in small batches by Allison Audrey Weldon.

This partnership marks the very first time Sangre de Fruta Botanical products are used exclusively in luxurious spa treatments created specifically around them, complementing the products’ aromatic delights, tangible benefits, visible results and overall beautiful feeling.
