The health, comfort and quality of experience that our guests receive is our top priority. To help us provide the best possible experience during your visit, please review the following policies and spa etiquette guidelines:
If you need to cancel or change your reservation, we require 12 hours notice, so that we can arrange for other clients to take your place. If you are not able to provide 12 hours notice, and we are unable to fill the time reserved for you, a late cancellation fee of 50% of appointment fee will be owed or charged to the card provided at the time of booking. The full cost of service will be charged for no shows, or appointments cancelled within 2 hours of appointment time. Please contact the spa directly, or cancel / reschedule your appointment through your online portal, a minimum of 12 hours in advance of your appointment time.
Due to the risks of Covid-19, we ask that if you are ill or experiencing symptoms to please cancel your appointment, and notify the spa directly as soon as possible. We will waive our cancellation policy in these instances. You will be able to reschedule when period of 10 days has passed, and you can confirm symptoms have resolved. For detailed information, please visit our covid-19 information page.
(Please be aware that late cancellation and no show fees cannot be billed to your benefit plan and will be due prior to your next appointment. In the event that your missed appointment was booked using a gift certificate, the fee will be deducted from the balance of the gift certificate.)
Spa treatments and access to the spa amenities (outdoor hot pool and relaxation lounges) are available to guests 16 years and older.
Exception: manicure and pedicure appointments are available to guests aged 6 – 16, when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. For safety considerations, guests under the age of 16 are excluded from the use of the hot pool and sauna.
Due to the massage regulations in British Columbia, your massage will only be eligible for an insurance receipt if you book in with one of our BC Registered Massage Therapists. To do this, please search availability for “BC Registered Massage” or request at the time of booking.
All other massage services, including personalized massage, are performed by our Spa Therapists, who are fully certified and experienced in massage. Our Spa Therapists have completed full massage diploma programs and are able to alter the service to meet your unique needs. Due to the fact that they are not BC Registered, they do not have a registration number to provide on the receipt and your massage will not be covered by insurance.
Please be aware the availability for BC registered massage is limited, and we recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
Use of our outdoor hot pool and change rooms is complimentary when you book in services valued at $99 or more (per person). Access to any spa service valued under $99 for can be added on for a fee of $12 and is by availability only.
Due to Covid-19, hot pool access for all services must be reserved. We now have a capacity limit of four guests within the hot pool and change rooms at any one time, therefore specific times will be allocated for use, and guests must adhere to their scheduled times. Please call our coordinating team if you have booked an appointment and would like to use these relaxing amenities. Our outdoor hot pool will be reopening on August 11th.
Taxes and gratuities are not included in the listed service price. Gratuities are appreciated by our team, however they are optional and up to the discretion of the guest.
We accept debit, Visa, Mastercard or Spa 901 gift cards for payment. Cash will not be accepted at this time.
Please be aware that we are unable to process third party gift cards (Spa Finder, Visa Gift, etc.) and are unable to direct bill for services or process WBC claims.
Insurance receipts for BC registered massage services will be issued to the individual who received the massage treatment, on the date the treatment took place. If paid for with a gift certificate, the receipt will reflect this payment type.
Please arrive 10 minutes in advance of your appointment time, so that there is sufficient time for our check-in process. Arriving late will limit the time for your treatment, thus lessening the effectiveness and enjoyment of the service. Treatments will end on time so that adjacent bookings are not delayed, and the full value of the service will be charged.
If you have reserved time in the hot pool, please arrive at your scheduled time. Due to Covid-19, we now have maximum capacities within the hot pool and change rooms. Specific times for use will be booked and adhered to per guest.
Our staff are professionally trained therapists who use draping techniques to ensure that your intimate areas are fully covered at all times during your appointment. If you are uncomfortable fully disrobing, we ask that you bring a comfortable pair of shorts to change into and communicate with your therapist so that you can fully relax and enjoy the services being provided. Spa 901 is not held responsible for any lost or stolen items.
No. Please do not bring alcohol with you or consume on our premise.
