bathhouse ritual

The drawing of energy from nature has been practiced for millennia. We invite you to immerse yourself in the elements and be reconnected with nature at Fairmont Spa.

Our famed Bathing Ritual at the Bathhouse will leave you feeling vibrant and nourished. The steps you’ll travel will be filled with ancient mineral waters, fire, ice, and healing aromas. You’ll experience an increase in circulation, and the release of tension from your muscles. This ritual can be enjoyed alongside a spa treatment or as an experience of its own.
