Win a Coconut Refresh Massage from Vida Spas

Comments 217 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Vida Spas are quickly becoming known for their special seasonal treatments that match winter, spring, summer, and fall. Their latest for a hot sizzling summer is the Coconut Refresh Massage.

Coconut Refresh Massage from Vida SpasThe treatment begins in Vida Spa’s plush relaxation lounge where you’ll sip a refreshing coconut water beverage. Next, you’ll enjoy a fragrant 30-minute coconut oil massage that rapidly nourishes and hydrates, infusing vitamins and nutrients into the skin.

Sore muscles will also find relief from coconut oil, which is readily absorbed by the skin due to the small molecules of the oil. Sun-seekers will also benefit, as the oil can protect against the damaging UV rays that cause premature aging.

This treatment to revitalize and refresh is available from July 12th until August 31st at all Vida Spa locations (Sheraton Wall Centre, Sutton Place Hotel, Westin Bayshore, Fairmont Chateau Whistler, Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle).

If you would like to win a Coconut Refresh Massage from Vida Spas, please leave a comment listing your favourite way to relax during a Vancouver summer. I’ll draw one winner at random from the entries July 26th.

Update My winner is Kym. Enjoy your time at Vida!

    I love watching the cricket at Brockton Oval in Stanley Park. Sunshine, a good book, maybe a nice cold beverage – watching a great game and seeing the cruise ships go by… Definitely the best way to unwind in Vancouver during summer. Other than maybe with a refresh massage at Vida!!!

  2. AndreaTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 12:59pm PDT

    My favourite way to relax? In the garden with a gin and tonic!

  3. TriciaTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:00pm PDT

    Flying a kite at Vanier Park or lying on the beach in the sun!

  4. AmandaTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:01pm PDT

    Obviously my favourite way to relax is with a massage – NOTHING beats that! But when I can’t get an appointment (or can’t afford the luxury of a quality treatment), a blanket and a good book and a patch of shade on the grass at English Bay is the very best way to unwind in Vancity. (A grande Coffee Frappuccino Lite or a scoop of lemon sorbet don’t hurt either.)

  5. BeckyTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:02pm PDT

    Amazing! My favourite way to relax in Vancouver is reading a funny book on the patio, under a big umbrella with a mojito in my hand and my favourite album playing in the background.

  6. OanaTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:06pm PDT

    A picnic at the beach! I love the people-watching.

  7. KylaTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:07pm PDT

    Favorite way to relax on a Vancouver Summer day? Backyard in a hammock, under a tree, with a cool drink in hand.

  8. NatTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:08pm PDT

    At the beach, reading a book, sipping on some wine (illegally from my plastic cup).

  9. cooperTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:12pm PDT

    Chill on the roof with a refreshing hops flavored beverage.

  10. jeffTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:12pm PDT

    I like to relax by taking a nice jog with my chocolate lab. There’s nothing better than seeing the joy it brings him to get out on the trails.

  11. JewelsTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:14pm PDT

    the best way to relax during summer in vancouver is to head down to third beach at sunset with a plastic cup filled with a yummy summer drink ;), a blanket to stretch out on, and enjoy a good book.

  12. CandiceTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:15pm PDT

    mmm that sounds heavenly! My perfect way to relax is walking along the dyke in Steveston with an Sarah’s Old Fashion ice cream in hand. Leaving all worries for another day – and enjoying what my first home has to offer

  13. mingTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:15pm PDT

    hanging with friends on the patio with some shade and a few icy cool drinks.

  14. TrishTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:17pm PDT

    Fab way to relax in the summer ?
    Yoga, beach, nightcap. In that order:)

  17. VeronicaTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:30pm PDT

    Biking the Seymour Demonstration Forest is an amazing ride with the kids…

  18. KayTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:45pm PDT

    My favourite way to relax is to go down to the beach with a few friends and a few drinks.

  19. kelseyTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:45pm PDT

    i like going to the beach, or sitting in my basement being nice and cool watching a movie

  20. ChrisTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:51pm PDT

    I think the “hanging out on the patio with friends” theme that others have mentioned is one of the best ways to relax during the summer. Not being a guy who really digs the heat, simple stuff like that is not only easy to do, but not too hard to regulate internal temperatures.

    It’s just plain tough being a walrus in the summer.

  21. KristenTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 1:56pm PDT

    Friends, sunshine, mojitos, good food and music. Ahhh relaxing!

  22. LesleyTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 2:01pm PDT

    Favourite way to relax is to sit and watch tv – catch up on old shows, discover new ones and re-watch great episodes.

  23. VanessaTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 2:02pm PDT

    Crescent Beach, blanket, good book, picnic, husband. A coconut massage might be able to trump that!

  24. UrsulaTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 2:10pm PDT

    This sounds spectacular. My favourite summer spots are Maple Grove Pool and Locarno Beach.

  25. ashleeTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 2:16pm PDT

  26. EmmaTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 2:21pm PDT

  27. KarinaTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 2:23pm PDT

  36. CathyTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 4:31pm PDT

    Reading a book on the deck of my boat in a bay on Anvil Island…

  37. MichelleTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 4:38pm PDT

    My favourite way to relax is to go for a swim at the 30 Foot Pool in Lynn Canyon Park, then lie in the sun on a hot stone to warm up! Especially good if you have a bottle of white wine chilling in the river, but that’s probably not allowed so don’t tell anyone. πŸ˜‰

    And a Coconut Refresh Massage sounds amazing!

  38. ApollineRTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 4:47pm PDT

    walking or reading next to the water

  41. Agasel LTuesday, July 13th, 2010 — 5:06pm PDT

    Going to Spanish Banks with the dogs when the tide is out and walking through tidal pools for miles, then landing on a sand bank and making a claim of the land before it is washed away a couple hours later.

    I know it sounds crazy but when I’m exercising is when I’m most relaxed. I’m always thinking and over-processing but when I exercise I feel so good.

    Or when I listen to Pink Floyd, that works too.

    Favourite way to relax in Vancouver, without spending money is to walk on the seawall and watch the waves hit the shore and rocks. I also enjoy to feel the warmth of the sun with eyes closed while listening to the sound of water. It somehow clears the mind, very calming and refreshing.

    This may not sound like a very masculine response… but it would have to be cuddling πŸ™‚ But not just cuddling random strangers….that would be awkward. πŸ˜‰

    Can’t tell you how much I would love to win this…my favourite way to relax is just lying in our bed on a hot day (for some reason, it’s much cooler in there than the rest of the house, and there’s a nice breeze), with a good book and a cold drink, listening to the big tree outside the window sway in the breeze and the sounds of the kids on the street enjoying the sunshine. Aahh!
