Haven't been to a Spa for years for a Mani or Pedi because of the Hep C scare. Got given a gift voucher so decided to be brave. What a treat. Oh man. Just Excellent. Things have changed. Everything in their own pouches and everything sterilized. You get to take home your own nail file as it can't be sterilized.... More

My husband got a great last minute deal through groupon, he booked a night at the hotel for my birthday and we received a $50.00 credit to the spa. I booked for a massage, my therapist was Vardi. She told me she has worked for the spa for more than 15 years. She was very attentive and caring and she... More

We were staying at Century Plaza and decided to use the services at Absolute Spa. The staff were amazing and so friendly and I was able to book an appointment at really late notice. Special thanks to Yvonne who I had for my appointment - such professional and friendly service.

I have just moved to Vancouver and I needed to find a spa that I could start frequenting as I love to get my monthly pedicures! I have definitely found "my" spa with Absolute Spa!! I walked in on a whim hoping they could take me last minute... lucky for me they had an opening. I was offered to change... More

I was recently at the spa for some "me time" and wanted to leave a positive review. I was surprised to see so many negative reviews. My time at Absolute Spa at the Century was nothing short of amazing. I was in the area and needed to get a manicure/pedicure. I didn't have an appointment but I called the spa... More

In Vancouver on business and in urgent need of a manicure/pedicure because of the great weather! Popped into Absolute Spa at The Century...and although I am unable to vouch for other spa services and the relaxation element, I can certainly say that the service I received from Deanna was very good....expensive but very good. I was offered a free spa... More

I had an amazing experience here they offered a discount for a massage and I was not going to pass it up. Very well prepared and the meals were very yummy.

My boyfriend and I visited the spa for our anniversary. The staff were very friendly and the massage was nice, but I was extremely disappointed with the change room. It was so small and with 4 other women in there at the same time, there was literally no where to have any privacy. I felt extremely rushed as I wanted... More

My pedicure at Absolute Spa at the Century plaza was fantastic. Jodi, the aesthetician, knows how to pamper! The service was well done: relaxing foot and leg massage and careful clipping and polish application. The day I was there there was one other client, which made for a zen experience. However, it's not always that quiet so if you're looking... More

The RMT massage was good but the price was exorbitant; can have the same i hour massage for $35 less at many other day spas. Seem to be paying for the possible use of the pool and a tiny steam room plus a "complimentary" salad; chicken if you eat meat, otherwise no vegetarian protein whatsoever (seriously --- you can't even...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
