Self-care at Bellingham and Whatcom County Spas

As the author Anne Lamott has written, "Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.” Thankfully, there are a number of excellent Bellingham and Whatcom County spas that offer a wide variety of therapies and treatments to help people take care of themselves.

Whether you're on vacation, getting yourself a well-deserved birthday present, or are just overdue for a break, there's a spa in Bellingham and Whatcom County that's right for you. For travelers, a trip to the spa can be the perfect way to begin a vacation, reducing neck and back pain from traveling or just clearing the mental slate before activities begin. Facials, wraps, and other skin treatments can also leave your skin looking healthy and fresh for photos. 

Here are a few spas in Bellingham and nearby to help you recharge. Treatments and prices change regularly, so be sure to visit the spa website for the latest information before booking your appointment. Many accept walk-ins to fill cancellations, but you're better off booking in advance to ensure you get exactly what you need. Also watch for sales, special offers, and off-peak discounts.

Located within walking distance of Historic Fairhaven Village, the beautiful Chrysalis Inn & Spa is part of the Curio Collection by Hilton and is open seven days a week.

Arrive early to enjoy the tea lounge, steam room, showers, and relaxation lounge overlooking the outdoor ponds and waterfalls before your treatment. Try a scrub and a peel to get that youthful butterfly glow. Or try their LED light therapy, massage, makeup, waxing and nail care services.

Much more than a spa, the Chrysalis Inn also has beautiful rooms, many with a view of Bellingham Bay. You can grab a bite after your treatment at their restaurant and bar, Keenan's at the Pier, which offers fresh, delicious Northwest fare. 

Check their Facebook page for monthly and seasonal specials, which can include affordable add on services. They recommend booking your appointment two weeks in advance.

Literally surrounded by water, Semiahmoo Resort & Spa is located at the end of a tranquil spit in Blaine, Washington. Semiahmoo Resort is just 25 minutes from the Peace Arch at the U.S.-Canada border.

Semiahmoo Spa is just one piece of this impressive resort. Surrounded by the beauty of Semiahmoo Bay, you can also enjoy award-winning golf, spot wildlife while you stroll the beaches of nearby Semiahmoo Park, and have an amazing meal at Great Blue Heron Grill or Packers Kitchen + Bar.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
