The Holtz supreme day at the Spa is an incredibly relaxing and beneficial experience! My facial was one of my favorites, so relaxing and my skin looks much more radiant and hydrated. All the services were beautifully done with thoughtful intellect experts. I also had a separate hair appointment the same week with Grace, referred to me by staff. It... More

I hadn't been to Holtz Spa since the spring and so when I went on the 4th November I was pleasantly surprised by the new location. They have moved to new digs on Rideau Street as of August 2016. Nice and easy to get to and the massage rooms and pedicure areas are much improved from the old location. everything... More

This time I had an hour regular massage and got an half hour complimentary reflexology! Both are great! Staffs at the reception desk are all nice and friendly. I would... More

Agains't my better judgement I decided to return to Holtz Spa. Don't be fooled they aren't closed, just relocated. Doesn't really matter though since it's still a horrible place to go. Running from their Trip Advisor review history it seems since on here it says closed. Massage was actually ok however the environment is the loudest and most non relaxing... More

I visited the Holtz Spa to enjoy a white chocolate truffle body wrap. What an amazing experience! My therapist, Buki, is skilled at her work and the treatment left my skin feeling better than ever before. I loved the experience of being wrapped cocoon-style and then lowered into the Amazing Hausler flotation bed. Hotlz Spa is a top-notch world class... More

Avoid this spa as they don't care to inform the clients about the changes in locations or hours of your appointments. I have booked an appointment for a facial treatment one month in advance and when I get there to have my treatment I realized that they moved away from the old location, but nobody informed me about the change....

Was booked for a manicure and pedicure. Concerned about the sinkhole on Rideau Street I called the day before at 2 pm to inquire if appointment was still on. Was assured everything was ok, no hint that there was a possibility of cancellation, was told access to the building was as usual. Came home from work at midnight to a... More

it's a good location close to my hotel. but frankly speaking it's too commercial and you don't feel welcome, i didn't feel relaxed, u can feel they are only there for the money, focused more on sales than customer experience. And there is politics between the spa employees and they bring it up in front of the clients. They push... More

Terrible customer service leaving me without time to book somewhere else. They originally rebooked me 45 minutes later which I accommodated only to send me a note 30 minutes later to cancel.
