I've been to The Spa 3 times now (once to their Bells Corners location and twice at their Kanata location) and it's been wonderful each and every time. The setting is amazing. It's hard to believe that this oasis is only half a block from one of the busiest roads in Kanata. The Kanata location is housed in a renovated... More

I wanted to achieve a group booking to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with my family. I have always enjoyed my visits to the Spa Day Retreat. Just yesterday I met with one of their front desk organizers. I'm ashamed to say that I didn't observe her name so I can only describe her: she is welcoming, patient, sharp and went... More

I'm so disappointed that the Spa Day Retreat no longer has free wifi. This was a convenience that helped during long wait times. I could read, get caught up on email and do other work as I waited. In this current climate of e-connectedness I hope that they consider busy working professionals and bring the wifi back.

My friend and I had pedicures at this spa last summer. Firstly, there was no base coat applied to our nails. Halfway through the pedicure and prior to the wax application, we were asked to move our feet to the side of the chair to empty and clean out the basin. So there we were - feet hanging mid air...

I have been here several times over the years for different services. I'm continually unimpressed. It's just okay. I don't always find the welcome very warm at the front desk.

My husband and I recently treated our office staff to a morning at the SPA.

Not an easy task. She took on the... More

So disappointing, my daughter and I thought we would step up our mani-pedi experience as a treat and head to the Spa. Started off ok, however my daughter's toes were a mess, polish all over the cuticles, Polish bubbled, toenails were shaped so oddly. Very limited color selection. The mani was even worse, she ended up having them take the... More

I've given this place too many chances and I'm officially done. This evening, I went for a relaxation massage where I was told midway through, that they were out of the regular slippery gel and instead were using a thick paste type of body cream. My body is absolutely raw and I had to ask her to stop as I... More

i have been going here for several years for pedicures and other services. I used to look forward to the amazing services and great experience. However, they have made some changes that are making me reconsider...they now 'clean' the pedicure station while you are still in the midst of your service!! The nail polish that they have switched to is... More
