An Aquatic Affair
Hydropathy, also called the “water cure”, is a form of therapy developed in the 19th century that uses water for pain-relief and the treatment of illness. At the Kingfisher Resort, the unique water cure has found a place at Pacific Mist Hydropath Spa.
Part spa, part aquatic water park, the tranquil surroundings at Pacific Mist Hydropath Spa remind one of an island oasis; the waterfalls, mineral pools, steam and rivers each tapping into the healing power of water to refresh and revitalize visitors of this unique destination.
Kingfisher Oceanside Resort and Spa is a luxury seaside destination nestled in the city of Courtenay, in the picturesque center of Vancouver Island’s Comox Valley. The Spa is an indulgent opportunity to bath, bask and soak away the strains and stresses of life in a calming, aqueous atmosphere.
Carved into the sandstone that adorns the interior of the spa, Swiss shower jets will rinse the remains of the day from your tired bones while warming your body. In the mineral massage pool, thoughtfully placed jets massage your back and shoulders, melting tension away. Smooth away any rough edges as you stand under soothing, warm waterfalls that caress your neck, shoulders and scalp.
Hot & Steamy
People have been using steam as a treatment for tension for thousands of years. In the steam cave, inhale the aromatic vapours that restore and revitalize the body and cleanse the lungs while encouraging perspiration to help the body purge impurities.
You’re soaking in it.
Bathe in the sea mineral pool while 104 trace elements heated to the ideal temperature permeate your body and provide an experience beyond compare. Experience the sensory delight of a bubble massage while surrounded by the sounds of gentle waves and sandstone accents in a stone-carved soaker tub for one.
An Exhilarating Ending
The glacial waterfall and river walk are the perfect way to complete your treatment. A rush of cold water will reinvigorate you after your relaxing soak in our pools; the river walk employs complex system of hot and cold water jets to enliven and energize you with a therapeutic massage that leaves your legs feeling light and alive!
