What I thought was going to be a nice “day off treat” for myself didn’t turn out to be THAT relaxing, I work in the spa industry and am well aware of the things needed to be done to make clients happy but I didn’t see that in Holtz spa. I got the hot stone massage with the eucalyptus steam... More

Someone gave me a gift certificate for "Holtz Supreme Day at the Spa." It was my first time going to this spa. I had a good day but not great. I would have left disappointed if I would have paid for the package, which was $399 before taxes. The massage therapist was a bit rough around the edges. I didn't... More

I received this a birthday gift. Lovely ! Although the pampering would be great , I really needed a deep tissue massage that would work through the issues in my back, neck and shoulders. To my surprise- that is exactly what I received! AMANDA was the best masseuse/ massage therapist I have ever had! I only wished that I lived... More

I was visiting Ottawa from New York for the weekend and made an appointment at Holtz Spa because of the proximity to my hotel. I was very happy with the service Karen Wetendorf provided and the overall professionalism and kindness of Holtz Spa. Karen was very knowledgeable, friendly and made sure she understood how I wanted my hair done. She... More

I booked a couple's massage for my girlfriend and I as a Valentines Day gift. Needless to say we were excited before we ever walked in and our expectations were high. These expectations were met and surpassed by the friendly, polite and professional staff. Our coats were hung for us as we checked in and we were directed to the... More

I have been a happy customer at Holtz Spa since the early 1990s. Meticulously clean, elegant Asian style decor, and highly qualified aestheticians are at your service. I have used a variety of aesthetic services; manicure, pedicure, facials, eyebrow/lash tinting and sports massage. Each has ranged from entirely satisfactory to utterly blissful. Even though I am not a frequent customer,... More

I have tried various spas in Ottawa and am now a devotee of Holtz Spa. My last facial a couple of weeks ago was fantastic as always - Buki is the most wonderful esthetician and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect facial done by a true professional.

I booked the Romance Package for my husband and I to celebrate our recent wedding. I was under the impression that Holtz was one of the nicest places in Ottawa from online reviews and google searches but I was wrong. The decor is extremely outdated and of poor taste. I found the entire venue to be busy, loud, and chaotic.... More
