GLACIER Outdoor Aqua Spa

Sometimes, we could all use a little peace and serenity in our lives, and there is nothing more relaxing than soaking in glacier fed waters, surrounded by the great outdoors and lush greenery of the Kootenays. When you need to unwind, step into our luxurious hot pool and enjoy the breathtaking view, just steps from the comfort of your private room at Kootenay Lakeview Resort BW Signature Collection. Our Glacier Outdoor Aqua Spa adjoins the hotel, just off the second floor, offering beautiful views of Kootenay Lake and our grounds below.

The Glacier Outdoor Aqua Spa combines traditional hydrotherapy with the beautiful landscape and Kootenay mountain air to leave you feeling your best, inside and out.



What is Hydrotherapy?

Extending from ancient healing techniques, hydrotherapy is a combination of methods and techniques that improve your overall health and wellbeing. Through temperature, pressure, water jets, and underwater massage, our pools invigorate the circulatory and lymphatic systems.

Feeling stressed? Our waters will help relax your nervous system, ease aching muscles, and reduce swelling. A soak in the pools combined with the refreshing mountain air and unparalleled views really can make your worries fade away.   

Outdoor Hot Pool *open year round

Surrounded by that peaceful kind of quiet only found in the mountains, our outdoor hot pool may just become your favourite place on earth. Combine the serene natural environment with aqua jets, underwater massage and heated spa floors–it’s guaranteed to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Outdoor Clear Water Pool *opening soon

Located next to the hot pool, our clear water pool features unparalleled views, open to the bright sky and surrounding mountains. Settle in for an evening under the stars, or gaze at a breathtaking sunset as you relax in the warm clear waters.

Walk-In Shower

Our spacious walk-in shower will help you relax as the soothing warm water falls gently on your skin. Set the shower to cold and reset your metabolism while increasing your oxygen intake. Combined with the warm water of the pools, the shower will leave you feeling renewed and energized.  

Mineral Hot Springs

Located just nine minutes from the Kootenay Lakeview Resort BW Signature Collection, the historical healing waters of the hot springs are a great addition to your stay in the Kootenays.  Soak in a variety of pools or venture into the horseshoe shaped cave for a unique unwinding experience.
