The waiting area and locker room at Ancient Cedars Spa feature the rustic charm that’s found throughout the Wickaninnish Inn. When you first enter the quaint spa, the friendly staff will greet you and show you to the locker room where you can begin getting comfortable in a luxurious cotton robe. The wooden lockers have natural tree branch handles that are a nod to the majestic forests that surround the spa — one of many natural details found throughout. In the locker room there’s an aromatherapy steam room where you can relax as you breathe in soothing herbal vapor. You’ll also find beach-stone showers for your use. Both men’s and women’s locker rooms have vanity areas with blow dryers and combs. The women’s locker room also features makeup remover and samples of some of the skincare products available in the spa boutique. Both locker rooms offer access to a co-ed steam cave crafted to resemble a grotto with hand-blown glass starfish set into the walls. Before or after a treatment, you’re welcome to settle in on the comfy couch in the waiting area and read a magazine by the fire or take in the view through the large picture window that overlooks the rocky beach and ocean just beyond the luxury British Columbia spa.
