The location of the Spa is on Granville Island, and it is close to some very special restaurants in the area, notably, the fantastic Sandbar Restaurant and a relatively new spot Edible Canada. Both have great patios and some of the best food the city has to offer. What with the Spa package and great food, this will be a Mothers Day to remember for quite some time.
