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 24 hours notice, so that we can arrange for other clients to take your place. If you are not able to provide 24 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. 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 to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
(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.)
Please DO NOT come into your appointment if you are feeling ill or experiencing symptoms of covid-19, if you are awaiting test results, or have been in close contact with someone who has recently tested positive for covid 19. Please notify us as soon as possible so we can arrange for other clients to take your place. You will be able to reschedule when a period of 10 days has passed, and you can confirm symptoms have resolved. information page.
Yes. Most treatments and access to the spa amenities (outdoor pool and relaxation lounges) are available to guests 16 years and older. Exceptions:
1) Our teen facial is available to guests aged 14 – 15, however a parent or legal guardian MUST be present and consent given on intake form to receive treatment. Teens aged 14 – 15 are able to use the hot pool if they are accompanied by a guardian. No further age exceptions can be made.
2) Pedicure appointments are available to guests aged 6 – 15, when a parent of legal guardian is present, however due to insurance purposes guests under the age of 14 are excluded from the use of the hot pool and amenities.
For safety considerations and in respect of the quiet enjoyment of other guests, we ask that you please do not bring babies or young children to your appointment with you.
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 pool is complimentary, by reservation only, when you book in services valued at $130 or more (per person). Access to any spa service valued under $130 can be added on for a fee of $15 and is by availability only. We have a capacity limit of 6 guests in the pool, so that we can maintain a tranquil soaking experience for our guests, therefore specific time will be booked in for use.
A robe and locker is provided to clients booked in for massage, body and facial treatments, however not provided for esthetic services (pedicure, waxing), unless pool access is added-on.
Taxes and gratuities are not included in the listed service price. Gratuities are appreciated by our team, however they are not expected, optional and up to the discretion of the guests.
We accept debit, Visa, Mastercard, Amex or Spa 901 gift cards for payment (Spa 901 gift cards/credits can not be used towards Botox/Dermal Filler services, as the clinics are administered by an independent physician).
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 pool, please arrive at your scheduled time so that you can maximize the enjoyment of your soak. We now have capacity limits within the pool and specific times are booked in for use.
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.
All services at the spa are of a therapeutic nature. Any sexual, lewd or inappropriate behaviour from a guest, toward one of our team members, will terminate the service without reimbursement. In these instances, the client relationship will also terminate, with no further appointments conducted at the spa moving forward.
No. Please do not bring alcohol with you or consume on our premise. Spa 901 is not commercially licensed by the BC liquor authority, therefore consumption of alcohol, cigarettes and cannabis products is prohibited. For your enjoyment, following your time at the spa, our team is happy to recommend amazing restaurants within walking distance.
We ask all guests to respect the quiet enjoyment of others and limit noise level within our space. Cell phones and personal devices are to be turned off or to silent upon entering the spa to avoid disrupting the enjoyment of experience for other guests in the relaxation areas and in service.
We love our clients and show our appreciation through our monthly spa promotions, as listed on our website. We encourage you to follow us on social media (Instagram / Facebook) to stay current with offerings at the spa.
