“Clean, friendly, relaxing, professional.”
Reviewed 24 June 2015

The spa was a little pricey, but so is everything in Banff.

My husband & I had a 60 minute massage, but we stayed for almost 2 hours enjoying the hot pool (it's quiet, the perfect temperatue, and clean!), the atmosphere (it smells like a meat smoker with the Keg Steakhouse being upstairs), and the company of the staff.

The staff was all very friendly and helpful. The massage was one of the best we have had. You can tell the therapists are trained and know what they are doing. We also liked how they used local products. We enjoyed the shower products so much we went to Rocky Mountain Soap to buy them.

We will definitely be back for a massage.

“Average pedicure”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 via mobile

Although the spa was beautiful and the staff were nice, the pedicure was very average. Foe $80 I would have expected a decent leg and foot massage but that wasn't the case. Also, the nail polish selection was small and there were little colour choices for summer. In the end with tip I spent over $90 and I receive a better treatment for $35 at the Vietnamese nail salon.

“Yumminess in the Mountains”
Reviewed 6 June 2015

ok - so I am not a review type of writer but here I am reviewing my second thing on TripAdvisor. Again, I used the site to investigate so I feel like I should contribute.

This spa/retreat is really a little gem. I give it top, top, top marks in every way. I'm going to keep it short here - I am a snob... I admit it readily. I feel like if I am going to pamper myself and spend ridiculous numbers of dollars on a massage (a massage I can have in Calgary for 1/2 the price but not at a "spa" per se,) I want the experience to be ethereal and heavenly. And it truly was.

Red Earth Spa is beautiful aesthetically, the amenities are divine - papmery and high quality, and the staff are lovely...For what more could you ask?? I had a fabulous massage with a lovely young woman and took advantage of the steam room and hot pool (its a big hot tub.) I took my time in the women's locker, had a shower,a cup of tea, did my hair...You get the vibe? I hung out and took my time - was in the moment - was loving it!!!

I would go again and again and again. And will. My newest best find :) Would be great for a girls overnighter... or a couples retreat. I was alone and in Banff for a work thing, but just loved and adored the experience.

“" A Special Treat "”
Reviewed 1 May 2015

My daughter and I ended our trip to Banff by spending an afternoon at this spa which is located in the Caribou Mountain Lodge.
Included in our spa visit was time in the lovely hot pool and steam room. We had it all to ourselves. The spa was clean, the products nice & the waiting area was stocked with refreshing water, teas and fruits. We then had a pedicure side by side which was amazing - we did not want it to end!! Had we known that the spa books up we would have booked earlier to have other services. I am definatley looking forward to visiting Red Earth Spa on my next visit to Banff.

“refreshed and renewed at the Red Earth Spa”
Reviewed 4 April 2015

My daughter and I had the pleasure of spending a day at the Red Earth Spa and we were extremely pleased with our experience. I had the hot stone massage which by the end of the session, I felt as though I had melted into the table. My daughter has never felt so relaxed and refreshed, and was very happy with her first spa experience. We had originally hoped to have a facial and a massage, but it was the aesthetician's day off so we made do with the massages.
Languishing in the hot pools was a lovely way to spend the cold, blustery day.
We will most definitely return for a visit the next time that we return to Banff.
