If you are looking for a way to kick off your life transformation, this is the place for you! I was at Grail Springs just before Christmas this year after being laid off after a 28 year career at one company and ending a long term romantic relationship (all positive steps by the way). I wanted to go somewhere by... More

The Grail Spa is a unique place that you'll never forget. It is situated on some of the most powerfully healing land in the country. Don't be fooled by the appearance of a decadent spa, it definitely offers that and so much more. I went to the Grail as I need to get away and rejuvenate. I came home a... More

I recently spent 2 nights at Grail Springs for the first time and would definitely look forward to a return trip. The setting is gorgeous, the room spacious and warm with a luxurious bath and special salts. Meals were served by friendly and extremely helpful staff and the food was healthy, tasty and filling. Yoga classes are highly recommended and... More

My mother and I took a trip to Grail Springs during the winter. Our room was gorgeous, spacious and comfortable. We had a huge tub and there was complimentary sea salt. The meals given were very delicious and portioned perfectly. I had a seaweed scrub, and honestly thought it wasn't worth the price even the littlest bit. She barely even... More

I just returned from a three day stay at Grail Springs. It was excellent - came away feeling totally rejuvenated and centered. The staff, the food, the treatments were all great value and the other guests I met there were terrific company (thank you all). If I have any suggestions they are: a) the room I had (room 9) was...

They say a picture is worth a thousand words; well, what could be more energizing then going from the outdoor hut tub into the cold lake in late October challenged by the elements and a mutually supportive group?

I found Grail Springs by doing a Google search for wellness retreats in Ontario, then got the confidence to book from TripAdvisor so I'm paying it forward here. Can't say enough about my five-night stay. Food was delicious, staff incredible, detox treatments amazing, yoga amazing and the group of women I met there also incredible. I'd gone solo but by...

I go every year to the grail for a break and cleansing. Since it is relatively close versus flying to the US, I rather drive and spend a week in Bancroft. You will think that after all these years I will get some sort of preferential treatment or upgraded room, a bonus facial, Nope. I found the food OK,I( my... More
