How to Spa


Altitude Spa is all about you and providing for your every need. Relax and rejuvenate in one of our treatment suites and take advantage of our full service spa. Indulge yourself into a blissful state by choosing the experience that is right for you from our extensive list of spa services.

To enhance your spa experience, we provide robes and sandals. For your enjoyment we also offer specialty tea, flavored coffees, and bottled water.

Spa Etiquette

It is customary to completely disrobe for your spa services, although you may wear undergarments if you prefer. If you are having a IPL treatment done please ensure your undergarments are white so that the laser is not attracted to the darker area. Throughout the services, your body will be professionally draped and at no time will you be exposed.

We are a digital detox area, cellular phone use is not permitted. Prior to entering your treatment room, all electronic devices should be turned off.


We encourage you to make reservations in advance to ensure the preferred treatments or therapists are available. Upon scheduling please stop in or call Altitude Spa at (403) 783-2999 as you will be required to have a credit card to book. If you have special requests, physical ailments, disabilities, allergies or if you are pregnant, please notify the receptionist at the time of your booking. This will prepare our team and provide the best possible spa experience for you. We will make every effort to accommodate your requests and create a comfortable, relaxing environment.

Check In

Please check in 20 minutes prior to your reservation to enjoy the spa facilities and finish any paperwork needed. Arriving late will limit the time of your experience or require you to reschedule. As a courtesy to the next guest, your treatment will end at its original scheduled time.


If you need to re-schedule or cancel your appointment, please notify the spa receptionist at least 24 hours prior to your appointment to avoid being charged in full.


In appreciation of outstanding service, gratuities may be given at your discretion.
