Over the weekend, my best friend and I travelled to Quebec for our very first spa experience. It was truly phenomenal! Highlights include the källa treatment and the 60 minute Swedish massage.
For those looking for peace and quiet, the källa pool is the place to be. Very few people compared to some of the other pools. While the massage was wonderful, if I do return, I will likely only pay for access to the baths to cut down on costs. Speaking of costs, I was astonished to discover that they wouldn't replace my soaking wet bath robe (which I paid for), while the free towels were constantly being restocked. Are robes really a limited resource at a spa?? Having to put on a wet robe throughout the thermal experience was quite unpleasant.
Although the point of the thermal cycle is transitioning from hot to cold, it would have been nice to be able to access the källa pool without going outside (our change room was near the lobby).
I see a lot of comments about photography, and given the fact my friend and I wanted to snap some photos of our own, we weren't bothered by others taking pictures. I could care less if I was in the background of someone else's photo. But I can see how this may take away from the tranquil environment. Anyways, I did see the no-device policy being enforced on a few occasions.
With our luck, there happened to be a snow storm that day, which brought a solid foot of snow while we were in the spa. That being said, I was surprised to see they only maintained clear pathways within the spa, and not the surrounding premises. This made for a near impossible exit with a small vehicle - I got stuck several times and had to maneuver through the snow filled parking lot and roadway. For a spa promoting health and wellness, you would think they would invest in better maintenance of the property for its guests.
All in all, despite a few hiccups, my friend and I enjoyed a relaxing getaway. Nordik Spa offers its guests a truly one of a kind experience in a beautiful environment. Hoping to return some day!
