ROOMS & SUITES: 21


Echo Valley Ranch & Spa, located in the Cariboo region of central British Columbia, Canada’s westernmost province, offers a generous blend of quintessential BC activities for discerning travelers, looking for a mix of wilderness meets luxury.


This is a place imbued with harmony and contentment, or Sabai Sabai as they say in Thailand. From the ‘east meets west’ spa experience to the global cuisine emanating from the kitchen, Echo Valley encourages you to breathe deeply, and allow this place to nurture your body and soul. Situated 450 km (270 miles) north of Vancouver, (a short flight or a scenic day’s drive), Echo Valley Ranch & Spa offers guests the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors, while sampling the lifestyle of a relaxing world-class spa. There are daily hikes and guided horseback rides along trails winding through the ranch’s 160 acres, plus the thousands of acres of adjacent uninhabited crown land beyond. Soft-adventure activities at Echo Valley include climbing 7,400-foot-high Mount Bowman, 4x4 safari drives through the Fraser Canyon, panning for gold, fly-fishing, or even enjoying the medieval art of falconry. Excursions include a game of golf at nearby Tobiano Golf, or a rafting expedition on the mighty Fraser River.

With more than 50 horses to choose from, many of which are elegant Tennessee Walkers, everyone will bond with a four-legged friend. Guided by experienced and caring wranglers, the ranch caters to all riding levels. Beginners may learn how to groom and saddle a horse, take lessons in the outdoor riding arena, and enjoy trails; advanced riders may pack a lunch and ride the range all day. And when it’s time to slow the pace, the Spa at Echo Valley offers a full range of Western-style and traditional Thai treatments. The Thai spa, housed in the traditional Baan Thai spa pavilion, indulges guests with ancient Thai treatments such as Thai massage, Thai Foot Massage and hot compress treatment, as well as body masques, polishes and scrubs. The Cariboo Spa offers classic European treatments - Swedish and stress relief massage treatments, hydrotherapy and spa body therapies that use mineral salts, seaweed and mud wrap, as well as facials, manicures and hair care. The spa features an indoor pool, fitness centre, sauna and steam rooms, and daily Thai yoga, fitness and meditation classes.
