The COVE™ Guide to The Best Spas in Toronto

August 12, 2019

Toronto is Canada’s largest metropolitan city and the hustle and bustle is never ending. While the city is known for its energy and culture, it also is home to some of the most luxurious spas around and we’ve compiled a list of the best spas Toronto has to offer.

 

Spa My Blend by Clarins – Ritz-Carlton Toronto

Spa My Blend is in the Ritz-Carlton hotel situated on King Street near the TIFF lightbox. It offers an exclusive line of Clarins (the French-based skincare line) products that are used in the spa – and there is only one other Spa My Blend – which is in Paris. Offering luxurious treatments like a champagne nail bar, couples’ treatments in private suites, and packages fit for royalty. Spa My Blend is at the top of our list for a reason.

Four Seasons Spa Toronto – Four Seasons Hotel

Most agree that the best way to enjoy the spa at the Four Seasons is to go for the entire day. There are two great restaurants in the hotel which allows you to follow your treatments with a great lunch or dinner. Inside, the spa has a massive pool, hot tub, and steam room. They offer relaxing massages and treatments galore, depending on how much time you have.

Looking for a stay-cation? Book a room to follow your treatments.

Elmwood Spa

Elmwood Spa is an urban retreat nestled in the downtown core that is surprisingly modern despite its historic-looking exterior (designed by those responsible for Old City Hall and Casa Loma). There are 34 treatment rooms, two restaurants, a juice bar, and even a space for functions. The treatments at Elmwood can fit into any hectic schedule – you could even pop in here on your lunch break!

There are culturally diverse treatments exclusive to Elmwood integrating indigenous Australian traditions to really take you out of the city for a short period of time.

Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie – Shangri-La Hotel Toronto

As soon as it opened it’s doors it was one of the top spas in Toronto. Located in one of the most luxurious hotels in the city, it recently went under renovations to accommodate its high volume of guests. Inspired deeply by the Middle East, each treatment is touched by ancient rituals and traditions. Together with Caudalie Paris (another luxurious beauty brand out of France) and Vinotherapie Spas, you can enjoy worldly treatments like the Crushed Cabernet Scrub or the Honey and Wine Body Wrap – some even include services with fresh grapes.

Enjoy your voyage to the Middle East while in the city and introduce yourself to old world traditions.

Old Mill Inn and Spa – Old Mill Inn

Treat yourself like British royalty at this west-end spa located in a Tudor-style atmosphere. The historic looking building has been converted into a high-end hotel and spa complete with a breathtaking garden terrace, outdoor lounges and high tea. They even boast British-inspired treatments like the Tudor Calming Facial. Brimming with history, luxury, and British culture, a stay at the Old Mill will make you feel like you went across the pond.

Toronto’s credibility for swanky hotels and spas rings true. We hope your stay in Canada’s most bustling city was a great, and relaxing one!
