About us

We are downtown Vancouver’s newest full-service spa, situated by the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Whether you work downtown or are visiting, we offer a wide array of unique services with fresh and creative protocols designed for you to unwind and ‘treat yourself’.

Against the stunning backdrop of cascading mountains and skyscrapers, retreat is an oasis created to bridge the gaps between traditional nail salons, single-dimensional treatment spas, and extravagant yet time-demanding hotel spas. Our highly trained team of multi-faceted aestheticians and massage therapists provide services that are customized to your needs yet are consistent in quality and attention to detail. We pride ourselves in using only the highest quality products and the latest and proven techniques.

You deserve to treat yourself, and we’re here to craft a personal and memorable experience for you. We look forward to serving you and making you feel recharged, refreshed, repolished, and redone. 


Liam graduated from Vancouver College of Massage Therapy. Seeing the positive influence that massage has firsthand with his own rehabilitation, he set out to help others do the same.

Liam’s practice focuses on patient’s soft tissue concerns, and has experience working with sports injuries, chronic stress, strains, sprains, whiplash, neurological conditions, and respiratory techniques.

Bringing a calm and measured personality to his practice, Liam wants everyone to know that their goals are attainable and with time, everything can be in reach.

In his free time Liam enjoys consuming all the culture Vancouver is known for.

He enjoys playing and watching ice hockey, tennis, road biking, and enjoying the North Shore trails.
