Get pampered at Ste. Anne’s Spa
Just an hour east of Toronto, the gorgeous castle-like architecture surrounded by rolling hills and lake views in the distance might look like a historic destination (and it is—some of the buildings date back to 1858). Inside, however, opens to a luxurious, all-inclusive spa experience that will leave you rested, relaxed and warmed from the inside out.
With more accolades, awards and honours than you can shake a terry cloth robe at, Ste. Anne’s Spa is dedicated to the art of pampering.
A relaxed body is only as good as a relaxed mind
Ste. Anne’s prides itself on providing a complete wellness experience and offers a robust program of activities designed to centre your mind and move your body. Enjoy the sounds of nature on a guided hiking or snowshoe outing. Practice meaningful breathing and stretching with yoga and meditation classes. You can even join the stable caretaker for the meditative practice of horse grooming at Ste. Anne’s Farms. Some spas may have you continually adding up the bill in your head while you’re trying to relax. For peace of mind, Ste. Anne’s inclusive packages mean you pay one price for your entire stay.
An integrated spa experience with hydrotherapy, esthetics and massage
Warm up in the eucalyptus steam room or sauna before your Swedish or hot stone massage. Splash between the plunge pool and the heated outdoor Fieldstone Grotto, then relax with a book in the massage chair room. Rejuvenate your skin with an esthetics treatment like the Firming Mud Facial or the customized Ste. Anne’s Signature Facial.
Seasonal treatments include the Warm Chocolate Swedish Massage with customized aromatherapy blend of dark chocolate, coconut and peppermint or clementine oil. Enjoy the Hydrating Hot Chocolate Wrap in winter, a foot to scalp soak and exfoliation.
And yes, both involve consuming chocolate.
If you’d rather enjoy a treatment in the privacy of your room, book a personal session in your cottage with a registered massage therapist.
Nurture your body with healthy nourishment
Rejuvenating really builds up an appetite. Besides the three standard meals, chefs at Ste. Anne’s offer an exceptional afternoon tea menu with a selection of tarts, local cheeses, sweets, scones, tapenades and sandwiches. The restaurant also serves several delicious vegan and vegetarian options. You can also opt for a four-course meal with a private chef for a romantic dinner.
Hint: check out their on-site bakery for butter tarts that have recently been added to the Kawarthas Northumberland Butter Tart Tour.
Customize a package perfect for you
Purchase a day pass to enjoy the spa services or treat yourself to an overnight stay in the Main Inn or charming cottages. Bring your sweetheart, your best friend or your book because this is the perfect place to catch up on "us time" or "me time." Either way, you’ll be sure to get serious TLC at Canada’s top destination spa.
