The Millcroft Inn and Spa

Sweet, sweet warmth is only an hour’s drive from Toronto. Sneak away to this paradise in the country and sink into their gorgeous outdoor hot spring.

Pillar & Post

This Niagara-on-the-Lake spa is the best of both worlds. On one hand, there’s a super cool indoor pool framed by palm trees and tropical prints. On the other, there’s the secluded outdoor hot spring. We recommend a dip in both.

Scandinave Spa at Blue Mountain

This is the literal embodiment of a winter wonderland. It’s like a vacation in Scandinavia, without the 14-syllable words and canned fish. The hot spring at the Scandinave Spa is absolutely dreamy. In fact, a sign saying “enjoy the quiet” welcomes you into the springs. Don’t mind if we do!

Grail Springs Retreat

This place is absolutely jam-packed with wellness features. We all need to become a better version of ourselves sometimes and there’s no way you could leave Grail Springs without feeling new and improved. Take a soak in the outdoor mineral tub, which opens your pores and eliminates toxins. You heard us right, it clears your skin.
