Spa Yurt in Sechelt BC
Sol Spa has established its day spa studio in a classic oceanfront cottage conveniently located along the Sunshine Coast highway. Our beach cottage is elegant, private and a petite piece of paradise. We welcome you into our English garden, the stepping stones guide you to our seperate entrance­way into our Sol Solarium. Retreat and soak in the sunshine and the soft sea breeze....

During the 1920's and into the 1940's Selma Park was known as a resort area. The steamship SS Selma brought large parties of tourists for day trips or to spend the summer months at the cottages. In its heyday Selma Park boasted a dance pavilion and a tea room. Sol Spa invites you to step back into a quieter time and enjoy a cup of tea while soaking your feet, lavish in a organic facial or receive a peaceful massage.
