Unique opportunity
Sep. 2021
This spa is located in the village at Blue Mountain. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The massage services provided were very good. They have a room with volcanic rock which is heated and you lay on for 30 minutes after your massage treatment which is supposed to help calm and heal you. This was a very unique experience and I enjoyed it.
The only sad part was that the showers were not available for use due to Covid.
All in all an very good experience.

Relaxing
Sep. 2020 • Couples
Visited early September and had a relaxing massage. It was very nice and relaxing. They have taken extra measures due to the current situation. I felt very safe.
I would just like to mention 2 things:
1- the isolation between 2 rooms is not very good. You can hear any conversation that the room next to you is having. Maybe some communication from management advising clients to keep their voice low.
2 - the heated volcanic rocks are really hot. I recommend a thin layer of clothing.

Blue Mountain Bliss & Bubbly
Jul. 2020
I have visited iwa Spa before and was interested in experiencing both their new treatments as well as how they have adapted to COVID-19 protocols. I was most impressed with the COVID, sanitation/cleaning signage located throughout the spa. Easy to understand, good graphics and colourful. The website gives a thorough explanation before visiting the spa on what the guest should expect and the process every step of the way. Upon arrival, the guest is given a sheet customized to their visit complete what to expect, checklist and is also asked verbally as well about their health status. Staff and therapists wear a mask at all times. Every therapist has their own bucket to keep their own massage oils and lotions so none are interchanged with other therapists. Cleaning and disinfecting is done continuously throughout the spa and after each therapy session in the treatment room. Many treatments now include a 30-minute Gan Ban rock therapy session. A great bonus. As well treatments that were 50 minutes are now 60 minutes. Previous guests will notice why the prices have gone higher because of these new additions. It's still great value for almost 2 hours of treatments, relaxing and rock therapy for less than $200.00 CAD. They have now introduced as well to extend your stay where you can rent a private patio cabana located just outside the spa with beautiful views of the Blue Mountains. Local drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are available as well as variety of food choices from local producers and Northwinds brewery. iwa Spa is a boutique spa located right in the village of Blue Mountain - so a great day getaway if in the surrounding area or stay in one of the many accommodation options available. Check out their new Bottoms Up Bliss Foot and Leg Treatment -- the one I had. Really helped unlock the muscle tightness and rid those toxins. Staff are young and enthusiastic. Best to visit during mid-week if possible as weekends can be very busy. Book ahead for best times to suit you. Gender neutral spa so guys (like me) feel very welcome here -- no frilly stuff.

At ease during Covid at IWA Spa - well done!
Jul. 2020
I was thrilled to learn that my favourite spa in The Blue Mountains, IWA Spa, had reopened with their new Covid-19 measures in place and couldn’t wait to get back. Like many, I had concerns on how these types of services would unfold in our new normal however it was a perfect experience, worthy of sharing. The protocols in place put me instantly at ease. I was greeted outside of the spa and checked in for my massage. I was asked a series of health questions relative to Covid-19 and then brought inside to my personal waiting area (comfy chair, dividers on both sides) and handed my personal care kit/basket. Inside I found my packaged robe, slippers and towel and laminated agenda that provided me the step by step guidelines of my visit. It was masterfully done and executed not to mention that as always, the massage therapist (RMT) was outstanding. I wrapped things up with a 30-minute relaxation on a heated Gan.ban bed (heated volcanic rock).

Perfect afternoon at IWA spa!
Jul. 2020 • Solo
My first massage in four months was a perfect experience! Iwa has done an amazing job to make clients feel safe and the attention to detail on every aspect of cleanliness, staff training, and social distancing is benchmark. My therapist, David, was brilliant. I would recommend this experience 100%. The follow up on the volcanic rock was completely relaxing and the retail therapy of lululemon was perfect. (By the way great selection and no long lines like you experience in Toronto). All in all an amazing way to spend an afternoon.

Massages can be done safely in COVID times
May 2018 • Friends
I visited Iwa spa with friends for a massage. Given Coronavirus this was our first visit to a spa in months, and I must admit we were slightly anxious before arriving.
The team at Iwa did an amazing job of making us feel comfortable and safe. Everything from a separate spa entrance to a protocol for continuous cleaning and social distancing gave us total comfort.
What a slice of heaven on earth! The therapist was excellent and overall it felt like “normal” spa experience. Amazing given these times.
I can understand why this spa has won so many awards.
What a great treat. We will be back soon.

Spas can accommodate a COVID world!
Jun. 2020
I was so looking forward to my massage this week, but this being my first massage as we adjust to COVID, I was wondering how Iwa would adjust their routine to ensure client safety. I was impressed with the new process, from the prescreening, to designated wait areas and managed flow through the facilities I was very confident in my personal safety. The best thing is they have implemented these new protocols while maintaining the welcoming, restorative vibe that I have always loved at Iwa. Yippee!!

Guys - listen to your wives!
Jan. 2020 • Friends
We were a group of eight with widely varying skills at yoga (my buddy and I were essentially talked into this by our wives - neither of us having done yoga before) and we had booked a private yoga session in the room where you lay on heated volcanic rock. Not only was it incredibly relaxing - we also managed to do some yoga and stretching in a room dark enough that you felt like you were in your own private space. It was a really great experience. And the yoga pros seemed to love it as well. Kind of cool when you can do a group event like that and everyone leaves in a great mood. Well done IWA!
