Come early for you appointments especially if you are having a pedicure as they have lovely hot tubs and you cannot use them if you have your toenails painted before as they will probably ruin your nail polish unless you wait a couple of hours. We always go early and make a day of it. They have a lovely wine cooling fridge so if you want to have some wine take your own have cool it. Not sure if they supply wine glasses so unless you want to drink from a teacup or a paper cup bring you own. They have a little quiet room with fireplace good seating/lounges lovely place for a nap. They supply lovely terry warm housecoats to bundle up in as well. Massages are very good and most people are registered so you can put on your medical plan if you want to. If you are doing this make sure you ask for a registered therapist when you book. Have a hot tub before and after. They are a bit pricier than most places for a pedicure but it is worth it for the foot massage and the hot tubs. They also have makeup and facials but I have never got on there so cannot recommend but I would think that their standard are just as high. I have gotten nail polish for free with my pedicure so that is also a bonus and it is wonderful wonderful nail polish. Just FYI their is not public transportation if fernie except for Taxi's but there is not where you cannot walk. Transportation between Sparwood and Elkford is provided daily and also to Cranbook on most weekdays so check into that. You can get number probably at the Chamber office.

The only true spa in Fernie. I suggest arriving early to take advantage of the outdoor hot pool before a massage. The spa is my go to for a quality pedicure. Friendly staff.

Yesterday I was unable to make my appointment because I got a flat tire. The owners didn't charge me for the appointment because I am a regular client. This spa always makes me feel so welcome. Jess always does my treatments and her level of knowledge in regards to skincare is very impressing... I trust her with my problematic skin. For xmas and bdays I always ask my hubby for spa 901 gift certificates. It's my favourite way to relax and unwind in Fernie!

I went to this spa this afternoon. I was happy about my massage.

They have a hot tub outside, which is really nice. However, I've been to Scandinavian spas before, and this place isn't quite there. The infrared sauna is in the change room, and is very small. Another customer was laying down naked in there, occupying the entire space for like half an hour... And there isn't a warm sauna.

All that to say. If you have experienced Scandinavian spas before, don't expect this place to be the same. However, it is the best spa I've been to in a 3 hour drive radius of Calgary. And I would certainly recommend it to anyone needing to relax.

I've had the pleasure of visiting Spa 901 many times over the last three years, for a range of different experiences. Without fail the service has been excellent; professional and welcoming. The space is lovely; an old renovated school house that is warm and inviting with a large outdoor hot tub, indoor sauna and cosy relaxation rooms, as well as private spaces for services. This place is a great escape!
The practitioners are all very experienced, so waxing is always efficient, and as painless as the experience can be! Massages and facials are a lovely experience - I love the smell of the Japanese Mint oil in the room!
My favourite experiences have been the events; the recent Conscious Cleanse ladies retreat was a relaxing and rejuvenating day that I'd highly recommend either with a friend or on your own. Private parties have also been a lot of fun and special day with a small group of ladies.
Thanks ladies for the great weekend!
