Get ready for relaxation like never before.

Enjoy the benefits of unwinding, renewing your senses, and bringing new energy into your life. Check out this itinerary and treat yourself to a spa day (or weekend) because you deserve it. 

If You’re Coming From Ottawa…

Start your morning off with a visit to one of Cornwall’s spas, to de-stress and get pampered. Cornwall and SDG Counties is a spa mecca for visitors with day spas, accommodation spas and wellness retreats.

PURE Organic Spa caters to people who want stress relief and relaxation in a serene atmosphere. PURE is the only licensed spa in Downtown Cornwall serving wine, champagne and beer. It’s located in a historic 2-storey brick building in the heart of downtown Cornwall. The second floor is devoted to a full make-up studio, hair salon, and two eyelash treatment sections.

Also in Cornwall, is the luxurious, head-to-toe-care at Nav Spa. Extend your visit, and indulge in a light lunch in a relaxation area overlooking the St. Lawrence River.

Next, venture to Brockville, where finding time for you is easy.  Relax and practise some self-care, with health & wellness services such as gyms, yoga studios, and salons. De-stress and get pampered at Heavenly Touch Spa with a full suite of services including hot stone massage, facials, pamper packages, relaxation massage, and even oxygen therapy sessions! It’s sometimes hard to find time to slow down and do something for you – but it’s worth it!

Afterwards, enjoy a meal at one of Downtown Brockville’s cafes or restaurants, as many will be walking distance.

Gananoque’s accommodation spas allow guests to indulge and then rest in quiet comfort onsite for the ultimate getaway.  The Gananoque Inn & Spa offers packages that include everything from facials to full-body massages on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. Further down the road, Glen House Resort and Spa caters to slowing down and treating yourself to a mani/pedi or more! Sit on the dock afterwards, or enjoy a meal from the onsite restaurants and pubs.

If You’re Coming From Toronto…

Escape to Kingston as the city marries fresh and forward spa services with history. Float weightlessly at Immerse Wellness Centre in their spacious float pods. Allow your mind to relax into a meditative state. Relax, refresh, recharge!

If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop, you must visit The Loft. Get the ultimate cool girl (or guy) blowout and then be whisked away to have one of the most relaxing facials by Jenn at Cove Esthetics. Harsh winter weather and central heating can really take a toll on your skin. All you will need is the right facial by a trained skin care professional!

Next on the map is the Rideau Canal where relaxation and wandering go hand-in-hand. Stop by Furnace Falls Farm Retreat for an escape that beckons to travellers and foodies alike. Leave urban life behind and dive headfirst into cooking classes or just sit in the deep window sills with a good book.

Wake up and feel wonderful by discovering the essence of natural wellness in the Lennox and Addington County.

Whether or not you have tried birdwatching in the past, you will want to grab the ferry over to Amherst Island. Scour the snowy fields and dense trees for the snow owls as they are known to perch and hunt in these areas throughout the colder months. 

Drive to Prince Edward County where self-care is almost inherent. Island time is the right time to take a step back and break free from the shackles of technology. Walk along the shoreline and feel as though you have travelled to another planet. The bright winter sunshine reflecting off the freezing waters will warm your heart and ease your mind from daily troubles.

Afterward, seek cover from the cold winter and make your final stop to The County’s first luxury spa, Bloomfield Beauty Co. Botox, lip fillers, hair removal, and more! This spa offers basic services (manicures, pedicures and facials) plus medical aesthetics.

Slow down and be well! Discover what makes this area so enchanting while promoting rejuvenation and wellness on a short getaway. You’re sure to find stress relief and self-renewal in South Eastern Ontario.
