Unwind at the spa

It wouldn’t be a romantic getaway without a couple’s spa day. Bodhi Wellness is the perfect retreat for you and your significant other to unwind against the serene backdrop of the mountains. Soothing amenities and treatments like outdoor hot tubs, a eucalyptus steam room, and hot stone aromatherapy will help rejuvenate both the body and the mind.

Gaze among the stars

End your day with a romantic walk under the starry night sky. Choose between a guided stargazing adventure with Kananaskis Outfitters, or a magical ice walk through Grotto Canyon with Canadian Rockies Experience. Both experiences offer a unique opportunity to safely appreciate the natural beauty of our destination at night.
