We are excited for you to experience SKA, Calgary’s only urban thermal spa, located in the heart of Beltline. SKA brings hydrotherapy indoors with a unique combination of hot and cold facilities, along with a full line-up of treatments. While SKA offers tranquility alongside rest and relaxation, we believe in life balance and strive to offer that here — please note our social hours are from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, which offers a more lively environment for guests to socialize, celebrate or simply take part in conversation with friends. Our space is no cell phone use, so you can unplug and unwind.
Prepare to be transported to an oasis of serenity, all without leaving the city.
Hot Vitality Pool
Temperature: 36°C to 40°C
Soak in the fiery therapeutic waters of the Hot Vitality Pool. Complete immersion of the body in hot water aids in relaxing muscles, decreasing soreness and stress relief.
Cold Plunge Pool
Temperature: 5°C to 15°C
Brave the icy cold water and take the plunge into the Cold Plunge Pool. Cold water numbs the nerves around the joints and muscles, and causes a release of endorphins and hormones with pain-relieving properties. A cold-water plunge is also believed to stimulate the immune system.
Temperature: 47°C to 51°C
Breathe deeply and allow purifying steam combined with a blend of essential oils to open air ways. Guests will be immersed in intensive warmth and humidity which will aid in muscle relaxation, detoxification, and deliver positive moisturizing effects on the skin.
Temperature: 75°C to 85°C
Relax in the hot, dry air of the sauna as it surrounds the body and immediately eases muscle tension. As the body temperature rises, circulation and immunity are boosted as toxins are flushed from the body.
Temperature: 54°C to 65°C
Allow yourself to further unwind in the Infrared Sauna. The least hot of all the saunas, the Infrared Sauna heats the body directly without warming the air. Long-wave infrared radiation is absorbed by the upper layers of the skin and is distributed throughout the entire body by the blood vessels and lymph nodes providing a warming sensation.
Temperature: 5°C to 20°C
Simulate the body with a rapid cascade of cold water in the Cold Shower. The cold water envelops the body and increases blood flow to internal organs, muscles and skin, which aids in boosting circulation and releasing toxins.
Rest your body and mind in our calming lounge. As rest is an essential part of the hydrotherapy cycle, you’re encouraged to sit quietly or even take a nap. A variety of complimentary flavoured waters and teas are provided to ensure you stay hydrated.
Elevate your experience or toast to an occasion at SKA Bar. A selection of wines and spirits are available at an additional charge. Bottle service is also available upon request.
SKA is 18+ with a full service bar.
We enforce a two drink maximum policy for a hydrotherapy session and one drink maximum for guests who have booked hydrotherapy and a massage.
