I used to go to Sante Spa with my mother, and we always had a great time. After moving away, I was excited to come back to Calgary and come back to one of my favorites. Unfortunately I had a pretty bad experience. When I called to book my appointment, I asked if they had any spa packages, which they... More

We got couples massages and paid for the extra time in the couples suite. The room was nice but plain. The alone time in the room after getting massages is definitely a nice feature. The massage therapists were good and used a nice combination of warming and cooling oils. It was quite expensive but this seems to be the theme... More

Masseuse insisted on massaging my feet when I specifically asked her not to touch them. Didn't know how to adjust the bed properly. When she was done she whispered to me to take my time. I lay there for no more than 5 minutes and started groggily putting my clothes back on. She knocked, opened the door, asked me if... More

Hi eattravellove, I would like to apologize for your experience at Sante Spa. All of our Registered Massage Therapists are well trained and highly experienced; for a therapist to insist on massaging an area after an explicit request not to is something we've never experienced before. The same goes for the RMT not giving you privacy to dress after your... More

I have been a regular goer at sante spa but there is no doubt it is slipping a little. Don't get me wrong my service ( always a facial) is top notch. But the mood and service has slipped. Today we stood in the front lobby for far to long without being welcomed. There used to always be a beautiful... More

I am not impressed with Sante Spas' or Spa Ritual's level of communication with prospective clients. I received a gift certificate and was informed that it could be redeemed at any of the Sante Spa locations or Spa Ritua.I booked a treatment at Spa Ritual and asked again if I could use the certificate. I was informed I could but... More

A clean, quiet and serene escape from the urban rush. I had a relaxation massage and my therapist was thoughtful and considerate. I particularly appreciated the small details of the treatment - ex warm towel treatment for my feet and towel for covering my head (to avoid massage oil getting into my hair).

Nice spa, very small... I have never had it so that the room you changed in was the same as your treatment, but nevertheless a wonderful day!

The thing I like most about Sante is that it is owned and run by a physician. In fact Dr. Smeltzer was instrumental in implementing regulations for spas throughout Canada. That makes me feel a lot safer considering the amount of fly-by-night pedicure/manicure places that are sprouting up around our city with less than savoury hygiene practices. I've only been... More

I had a facial procedure done and everyone at the spa was great. First I had a free consult and then two days later I went back for the procedure. All questions were answered and I was given information on additional treatments. I definitely recommend this spa.
