If you have ever been to the Sahara Spa, you know exactly what I mean when I say “Transported Away”. It is one of those places that you walk into, and immediately feel like you’ve been whisked away to some fancy resort. If you haven’t been to Sahara Spa, I am going to tell you why I think it is a must, whether you are from Moose Jaw or planning a trip here.
The spa is located in the old CN Rail Station. Originally built in 1919 from Claybank bricks and Tyndall stone, this once bustling train station has been completely remodeled inside. However, the outside still has the charm of the rail station, with its large middle section flanked by symmetrical wings on each side. You will also see that the doors and windows are perfectly spaced apart as per the original architectural design. It was designated as a historical train station in 1992 and a municipal heritage site in 2002. Sahara Spa has been operating from this building since January 2004.
The inside of Sahara Spa is stunning and every little detail has been looked after down to the specific lighting to each area. There is soft and relaxing music playing and each and every person is greeted by their front desk staff with the offer of a cool glass of water or hot tea. From the minute you enter, you are treated with the utmost care and attention.
The staff at Sahara Spa are truly amazing, and just one of the many reasons I love visiting this business. They are qualified, educated and all participate in ongoing training. They are a Quality Assurance Approved Spa which means they have the highest standards related to health, safety, hygiene and customer service. They share this with only 21 other spas across Canada.
Their treatments are focused on services you would find all around the world. Their 8 chair pedicure suite is perfect for bridal parties, birthdays or just relaxing with your best friend for an hour. Spa Manager Kim recommends their Sahara Signature Canadian Rosehip Stone Massage for a one of a kind experience.
There are some new services available at the spa. They now offer sunless spray tanning, acupuncture and dermaplaning. Follow Sahara Spa on Facebook to keep updated on specials.
I would like to thank Kim for taking time out of her day to chat with me and show me around the spa. Sahara Spa also supplies one treatment to each of our summer students so they can experience the spa for themselves and we greatly appreciate that!
See you around,
