If your bank account allows, it never hurts to book a spa day seasonally. If you’re in the market for a spa experience that won’t feel like a waste of time or money, check out these five notable spa services from some of Toronto’s best spas.
The Rose Gold Facial from the Spa at Four Seasons Toronto
Fresh from a little nip ‘n tuck, the Spa at Four Seasons Toronto now debuts a jewel tone oasis – complete with gold and stone accents, brass branches, and flowers – and a shiny new spa reception (offering the only excuse you need to book an appointment). In addition to the space, the spa menu has also been updated, with popular new treatments including things like the Rose Gold Facial, a 75-minute oxygen-boosting treatment that uses rose quartz crystals to tone and tighten skin. The entire experience leaves the skin refreshed and hydrated, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and renewing youthful elasticity.
North Medical Spa
North Medical Spa strives to remove the stigma surrounding enhancements and embrace the community where women have the confidence to brag about their preferred treatments and share their beauty secrets openly.
Owner Amanda Mizen, dreamed up a location that feels as comfortable and cool as your best friends living room and, where staff listen more than they speak. “We’re not here to tell you what you need or what’s hot…we’re here to deliver what you want.” Whether that’s a tiny touch-up or total transformation, North Medical’s services are fully customized to your desired outcome.
The Divine Body Treatment at Miraj Caudalie Spa
For a fresh start for the warmer season, reverse the toll the brutal winter had on your skin (i.e. roughness and dryness) with the Divine Body Treatment from Miraj Caudalie Spa in the Shangri-La Hotel, as you’re scrubbed down with a luxurious body treatment based with sugar, Hibiscus, sesame seed, and grape seed oil to seriously exfoliate and nourish the skin. The refreshing treatment (you’ll literally feel like they’ve scrubbed off a whole other person) is complete with a 30-minute relaxation massage.
The Deep Siam Massage at Elmwood Spa
Hit one of Toronto’s oldest spas, Elmwood Spa, for a soothing massage with a side of water therapies and a quality meal in your robe. Elmwood Spa’s Deep Siam Massage targets muscle pain, stress-induced muscle tension, fatigue, and even recovery from that lingering spring cold. You can expect a heated Thai herbal compress (that you never knew was missing in your life) to restore and redirect energy, with herbs like lemongrass plai, turmeric, and Kaffir lime and essential oils to repair the body by balancing the senses, calming the nerves, and revitalizing the skin and tissues. If you’d rather share the experience, the massage is also available for two.
A Mani/Pedi at Hammam Spa
While a manicure and pedicure at Hammam Spa definitely don’t come cheap, if there was ever a time to splurge on all of the frills in the nails department, it’s when those toes finally emerge from hibernation for the season. A mani/pedi at Hammam nail services includes a polish application, cuticle care, nail shaping, and a hydrating massage to complete the experience. As (a very well-received) added bonus, because the service will set you back over $100, you can also detoxify in the spot’s 500-square-foot Hammam Steam Room before and after your treatment.

Once you’re settled in the spa’s pristine walls, the treatment will include a double cleanse, exfoliation, extractions, Rosewater mist, a scalp massage followed by a customized facial mask, and massage using smooth round ice globes and finishing creams.
