We indulged in a spa afternoon while staying at the Magnolia and we were not disappointed! My wife had a wonderful 2 1/2 hour session with Emily who was amazing while I enjoyed a shorter, but still stellar experience with Yuki. This is a wonderful oasis!

I visited the Spa Magnolia for a facial and was so impressed with my service! The front reception staff were friendly and professional and the atmosphere was relaxing and peaceful. I would have to say my facial was the best I have had. The esthetician did a wonderful job on my face and décolletage and also have me a shoulder,... More

My husband & I stayed at the Magnolia Hotel so we decided to book a couples massage during our stay. Our treatment was $230 for the one hour couples massage & we both had RMT's. We always enjoy relaxing both before and after our treatments but found the waiting area inside the spa to be quite small so with other... More

Hi Christie, Thank you for your feedback, The Spa Magnolia stives to provide excellent treatments in our beautifully designed boutique facility where the attention to detail is evident throughout. While there are certainly larger facilities in downtown Victoria many of our regularly returning customers love the intimate, private feel of our spa. During peak hours when RMT couple's massages are... More

The Spa Magnolia is the perfect escape to recharge. The premises are clean, the staff is friendly, and the products are natural. As my family and I were staying at the adjacent hotel, I decided to book an hour-long massage which turned out to be a fabulous decision--the experience was a relaxing and luxurious treat! From the moment you enter... More

This place is absolutely stunning - historic building, brick walls, upscale decor. One of the prettier spas I have been to. Peaceful, relaxing waiting area. Enjoyed my facial - very quiet and relaxing. Would definitely return when in Victoria.

This boutique hotel had it all - great room, service and lounge. When I travel alone for business I like to spend some alone time and have all amenities at hand so I don't have to head out. The Magnolia didn't disappoint. The room was really comfortable with nice products - including makeup remover. The robes and slippers were lovely.... More

We considered the Empress, but knew the rooms would be small and chose the Magnolia Hotel & Spa instead. It was one of the most beautiful rooms we've ever stayed in -- and with a magnificent view of the Parliament House, all lit up at night. The location was perfect -- just around the corner from The Empress -- the... More

For a pedicure, I'd recommend go somewhere else. The colour I wanted was already in use and they only had one bottle, they said we can share the colour, but will have to skip the massage or footwork. Usually when you get a pedicure they scrub your feet smooth with various tools, here they only used a file, and after... More

I have attended the Spa Magnolia for RMT services with Jill and facials/pedicures with Drew for well over a year now and am convinced of their professionalism and love of their jobs. The spa itself is lovely, clean and inviting. My husband wasn't sure, initially, that a spa experience was for him. After having Jill as his RMT, he's convinced... More
