Need some R&R after spending a week with the in-laws? We’ve got 8 perfect spa escapes in Ontario for you to rejuvenate at. Get a massage, get a facial, dip in some hot springs, and maybe just never come back!

Here are 8 great spa escapes in Ontario.

SCANDINAVE SPA

Scandinavians might’ve been Vikings, but they definitely knew how to unwind. Case in point: their tradition of hydrotherapy. At Scandinave, they’re committed to the ‘hot-cold-relax’ system, which is proven to release endorphins (AKA: make you feel amazing). Plus, the Blue Mountain backdrop isn’t too hard on the eyes, either.

Where: 152 Grey County Rd 21, The Blue Mountains
When: Monday- Saturday, 9 AM- 9 PM
Cost: $60 bath access

COUPLES RESORT

spa ontario

As the name suggests, this is a two-person tango. It’s the only 5-star resort in the area, so you’re guaranteed some maximum relaxation with your special someone. Splurge on massages, hot stone therapy, and nail services. Also, you have the option of getting treatments in your suite, so you never even have to leave the room if you don’t want to. If you do, there’s snowshoeing and exploring aplenty right in the area!

Where: 139 Galeairy Lake Rd, Whitney
When: Monday- Sunday, 9 AM- 9 PM
Cost: Varies by service

THE BRIARS

If you’re looking to explore Lake Simcoe, The Briars is a great option to experience whirlpools, body wraps, holistic treatments, and more. It’s high-quality and relatively easy on the wallet, depending how boujee you get. Head here for some feel-good vibes without the guilt-inducing prices!

Where: 55 Hedge Road, Jacksons Point
When: Monday- Sunday, 10 AM- 6 PM
Cost: Varies by service

100 FOUNTAIN SPA

spa ontario

Niagara-on-the-Lake is a stunning spot to do just about anything, but we think soaking in some hot springs and drinking wine are some of the best. This spa has 13,000 square feet of stunning space where you can get treatments ranging from anti-aging vinotherapy (using the same ingredients as wine-making) to botanical body treatments.

Where: 48 John St W, Niagara-on-the-Lake
When: Monday- Sunday, 7 AM- 10:30 PM
Cost: Varies by service

GRAIL SPRINGS

grail springs spa

Located 2.5 hours from Toronto, Grail Springs is a great place to go all in. It’s luxurious and conveniently located alongside an alkaline spring-fed lake, so there’s really no way you could have a bad time. We recommend their craniosacral therapy to release tension, or their mangosteen radiance booster facial if you want to get some glow back in that winter skin.

Where: 2004 Bay Lake Rd, Bancroft
When: Monday- Sunday, 8 AM- 9 PM
Cost: Varies by service

THE MILLCROFT

millcroft spa

Countryside views + hot spring pools? Sounds like the perfect opportunity for some off-the-grid R&R. The Millcroft is surrounded by quaint villages with gorgeous views of the rolling hills of Caledon… but if that’s not already enticing enough, this place’s hydrotherapy methods are said to increase circulation, relieve arthritic pain, and cleanse the body of negative energy.

Where: 55 John St, Alton
When: Monday- Sunday, 8 AM- 9 PM
Cost: Varies by service

STE. ANNE’S 

spa ontario

This spa has a list of awards and accolades longer than you’d probably care to read. From being a top destination spa to being ranked the best for girlfriend getaways, this place has it going on! Their seasonal packages are on-point. The winter package includes a hot stone massage, an overnight stay, and 4 hot meals. It’s a perfect gift if you want to spoil a pal. Or, just spoil yourself! Or, spoil us!

Where: 1009 Massey Rd, Grafton
When: Monday- Friday 8 AM- 8 PM, Saturday & Sunday 9 AM- 5 PM
Cost: Varies by service

We all know our city has some gems, but not everyone has explored this amazing five-story spa that’s conveniently located on Elm Street. They have water therapies, LI’TYA and Siam treatments, and tons of massage options—so if you’re looking to stay in the city to detox, this is your spot!
