8 Oregon Spa Destinations

Head to the coast for fireside massages, seasonally appropriate facials, and unlimited cookies.

Planning your bridal shower or bachelorette bash? Or just in need of a little enlightened pampering (and calming ocean views) in the midst of all your planning? Check out these 8 spa picks to help you achieve pre-wedding nirvana.

1. Adrift Hotel & Spa (Long Beach, WA)

This updated hotel’s 80 rooms pair luxury with sustainability. Stop by Body Essence Massage for some deep-tissue work, making sure you return to the city knot-free. Then adventure out on the Discovery Trail or borrow a beach cruiser and ride around the peninsula.

2. Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa (Astoria)

Century-old wooden foundations that once held a fish-packing company support this spa as it juts 600 feet into the Columbia to command unparalleled views of Cape Disappointment. Choose from a variety of body treatments, including a Chocolate Orange Body Wrap and Sea Algae Wrap.

3. Surfsand Resort (Cannon Beach)

Within shouting distance of iconic Haystack Rock, many of this resort’s 95 guest rooms offer deep soaking tubs and ocean views. On-site massage therapists provide bodywork basics, including an in-room fireside massage and other specialty treatments like facials and body scrubs. Plus, unlimited cookies. Done.

4. Elements by the Sea (Cannon Beach)

In addition to massage work, this Cannon Beach destination also offers options such as Reiki to help balance those hectic energies that winter bestows upon us all. Try the Ultimate Body Renewal Package, which promises over two hours of detoxification starting with a footbath at sunrise and finishing with a honey butter massage. Yes, please!

5. Overleaf Lodge & Spa (Yachats)

The Overleaf sits on a rocky outcrop a three-hour drive from Portland, serving up offerings like the signature “Coastal Cranberry Kiss” package, which includes a cleansing scrub derived from cranberry, pomegranate, and apple. 

6. Spa Manzanita (Manzanita)

Try the “Refreshing Day,” which includes a body scrub, 60-minute massage, and seasonally appropriate facial (last autumn, a PSL-dethroning pumpkin), and finishes with a foot soak and tea. We already feel Zen, just reading that.

7. Salishan Spa & Golf Resort (Gleneden Beach)

The brand-new infinity Whirlpool overlooking Siletz Bay makes us think all pools should be infinite. Bring out your inner VIP with the Earth Mineral Mud Wrap or the Fire & Water treatment, in which time in a private tub and fireplace suite is followed by a 60-minute massage and a wrap or scrub.

8. Earthbound Beauty Spa (Newport)

This full-service day spa is located in the historic Nye Beach neighborhood. The array of treatments runs from massage and body wraps to hair design, makeup application, and waxing. Get a mani-pedi, order a cheese and fruit platter, declare victory.
