Established in 1996, The Spa Ottawa caters to a growing market of spa goers. With 22 years experience and two locations, in Bells Corners and Kanata, guests enjoy a variety of services and treatments.

For today my wife booked her OxyGeneo Facial treatment which she has been waiting for a long time to replace what she earlier used microdermabrasion that is not offered anymore.
The treatment price is $170 after tax and took them to finish 20 minutes (!) and she has absolutely nothing on her face, on her skin. The “treatment” is useless I wouldn’t recommend to anyone, nor The Spa at all. The old location was full of friendly staff but not this.

We felt completed defrauded by this company. We called to book massage therapy appointments for 3 members of our family. After the massages were finished and it was time to pay, we were refused receipts for a benefits claim, because the people massaging us were not registered massage therapists, but visitors from out of country. We had to pay about $300 without benefits receipts. When we contacted the management, they acknowledged the confusion, but insisted their hands were tied, and no refund would be provided because we received services.

We will never set foot at this place again. It was our first time and last time.

To be completely honest, I don't like manicures, pedicures, or massages. So why am I giving a review on a Spa you may ask. On a whim, I decided to try a body wrap while my husband (who absolutely LOVES massages at the Spa Day Retreat) was having a 90 minute massage as part of a "Staycation".

That said, I thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed my Coconut and Mango 60 minute body wrap. My skin never felt so light and soft once the treatment was all done!!!! It took me a couple of days to want to shower, I didn't want to ruin how wonderful my skin felt.

Lacey was so professional. She explained the different steps along the process. She was kind and sweet and lessened my self-consciousness of being quite overweight. The old stone building is beautiful and the grounds are serene & tranquil.

I'll definitely be getting other body wrap treatments from The Spa Day Retreat, especially as the drier winter weather sets in.

As of August 2020, it was $110 Canadian for the body wrap before HST. I haven't been to other spas in Ottawa so I don't know how things compare price-wise, but it was such a positive experience.

There is ample free parking, but The Spa Day Retreat is also very accessible by public transportation.

We treated our STAFF to an OFFICE SPA DAY at this lovely spot once again. I think this is our third year in a row.

Our appointments were co-ordinated by Luisa and she did a great job. (We had 11 people and they each had 2 treatments and we had to be out by 1 p.m....so it was not easy scheduling things. )

We were greeted upon our arrival and escorted to the upstairs LOFT. Again we were allowed to use the LOFT and had some breakfast treats and juice for our staff.

Each of our girls loved their treatment and the staff who took care of them. My husband and I each had a facial with LACY and she was amazing!!! My husband said it was the best facial he has ever had!!!

I had a pedicure with a sweet girl name Mattie who was kind and gentle and nice to talk to. My feet felt amazing!

There was a Jamaican lady that did some of our girls’ body treatments and they were raving about her too!!

I actually thought that our visit this time was the best out of the 3 !

Exceptionally comfortable, professional, clean, classy and a caring environment. We want to schedule next year’s Staff SPA Day here again.

Thank you for your attention to detail and for making each one of us feel special.

If you’re looking for a professional, calming and relaxing spa experience, the Spa retreat is the best in town! They have a variety of services for men and women and couples or besties but definitely check their salon, and facials!

Me and my girlfriend decided to treat each other to a half hour massage and nails at the spa day retreat , from the moment we arrived the lady at the front desk was so nice to us and help us to get our coats and offer us tea which it was perfect because it was a really cold day.
Our esthetician’s picked us up and brought us to change into these cozy bathrobes then got us in our rooms, the massage was so needed and our manicure was perfect we decided to pick the same color and the two esthetician’s were so friendly made our whole experience one to remember, me and my friend will definitely come back, next time full body massage and maybe pedicure.
Thank you Izabela and czarina for taking care of us.

I first would love to say I got a gift certificate from my husband for my birthday and he booked a treated me with a facial and a pedicure at the spa! He surprised me this morning by bringing me. It was my first time at the spa and it was nothing that I’ve ever experienced! My facial was so relaxing and I just loved how my esthetician stayed with me throughout the entire service. I’ve had several facials where they would leave the room on multiple occasions while they left a mask on, but this facial was like no other and what made it more special was there was tons of massage which left me so relaxed when I left the room. During the pedicure also, my esthetician was so gentle as I am sensitive on my cuticles. And asked me tons to questions to make me feel comfortable. And I also love that they offered me tea or fruit infused water to have during my services. Was a special morning at the spa and made my that much more special! Thank you so very much!
