My wife and I were excited to return to The Waters after being out of the province for 5 years. We actually spent a day together at The Waters 5 years ago during our Honeymoon, and it was a great experience. Today's spa day was just as memorable - our side by side massages in the honeymoon suite room were... More

Tipping policy is not discrete at all, and can make customer feel very, very uncomfortable. Front desk staff took my coat on arrival, but on leaving I had to retrieve it myself, not helpful, seeing as there were two staff at the front desk. Service was fine, not spectacular as I had expected. I was hoping for a better experience... More

Went to the spa with my 2 sisters , mom and 2 daughters. Everyone was professional but only one of the 4 esteticians chatted with us. All answered were short or nodding of heads etc. Absolutely no personality, small chit chat etc!!! Very dissappointing , especially after I spent 250$ in 2 hours!!!! I understand it is a spa and...

Beautiful spa with excellent staff. Nobody rushed and the whole experience was relaxing. The Waters is very clean and the rates are within reason considering the quality of service.

went here for a couples massage once, liked how they get u into a robe and soak ur feet to relax before hand but i felt like it wasnt worth the extra $10 i was paying here vs where i normally go considering RMT massage is already a bit much. Also the actual massage was just so-so, although the atmosphere... More

I'm a little cautious about spas but after I went for a mani,pedi I returned the following week for the ritual facial. I felt wonderfully spoiled from a welcome glass of cucumber water and cup of tea, lovely change rooms with private lockers, footpath and then my lovely facial including a hot seaweed back treatment and a foot, shoulder and...

The Waters spa is a lovely place to go to relax and be pampered. I've been there a few times for mani-pedi's and have enjoyed the whole experience. Staff are friendly and attentive, lighting and fragrances calming, and choices of complimentary beverages a nice treat. The whole atmosphere promotes relaxation. Prices are upper end of the spectrum but worth it... More

My girlfriend took me to The Waters for a Christmas gift, and it was a really good time. I have only ever been to one other spa (at Blue Mountain), and the massages that we had at The Waters were awesome. We were in a room with beds beside eachother, and we changed into robes before the massages, so we... More

The Waters has a horrific policy for handling their gift certificates. They do not link the certificates with a name. If you are purchasing gift certificates be advised that if they are lost, stolen, not loaded properly or the swipe doesn't work, there is no way they can track your certificate. My husband purchased a gift certificate for my birthday.... More

The Waters does the utmost to please every guest and set expectations. Our Gift Card policies are indicated on the back of every card - if the card is lost or stolen, it is not replaceable. In the case of this review, we spent considerable time using the receipt to go over and above to locate a purchase made 6... More
