Steps from the water’s edge, The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel and Residences at The Surf Club is a light-filled sanctuary where white and blue hues blend in harmony with the sand and sea, situated within the legendary atmosphere of The Surf Club. Just as original club members sought an escape in the sun with no boundaries, The Spa is a place where guests can be themselves and find themselves. This enclave of deep relaxation offers the completely customised experience that has always been cherished at the Club, with a contemporary focus on world-inspired treatments and advanced products carefully curated by Director of Spa Cassandra Forrest.

Over her career, Forrest has traversed the globe to lead Four Seasons spas in far-flung destinations such as The Maldives and China, allowing her to bring deep knowledge of global practices to The Surf Club. Under Forrest’s direction, services at The Spa blend time-honoured traditions with cutting edge technology to provide a tailor-made experience complemented by nostalgic touches nodding to The Spa’s historic setting.

Forrest got her start at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler in 2005 and soon realised her passion for wellness and healing. Her enthusiasm would propell Forrest through the ranks at award-winning spas including Grotto Spa, Tigh-Na-Mara in Canada, One & Only Spa by ESPA at Reethi Rah Resort in the Maldives, Four Seasons Resorts Maldives and most recently Four Seasons Hotel Beijing, where she served as Director of Spa & Fitness for the past three years.

Raised in Victoria on Vancouver Island in Canada, the sea beckoned Forrest to return to the shoreline in 2016 and lead the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel and Residences at The Surf Club. In this beautiful ocean oasis, Forrest found her next home and built a healing retreat unlike any other.
