Was a very beautiful and spacious spa.Many smaller hot tube along the lake. However the lake is in earshot of a small public beach with screaming kids , so we left the dock area after a few minutes. Had lovely drinks and relaxed on the outdoor couches. All staff was very friendly and accommodating. Massage was excellent , their massage therapists are well trained and pay attention to their clients. They have many relaxation areas including an aquarium room, relaxation cinema, a Moroccan styled rest beds and a place that look like the shire from the hobbit , with a door leading into the side of the mountain ( inside resembles a finnish sauna but at lower temperature with candles ). My husband had an appetizer of smoked salmon and enjoyed it .Bring a bag for your wet clothes , they don't provide it.As well your own water bottle, the give you a reusable empty water bottle you return at the end.They should have fountains to replenish you water, other wise its only the restaurant or bathroom to fill up your water bottle.

Just loved this experience - only the 2nd in my life. Wonderful scenic décor to relax in. Came on a Wednesday in mid-August and was not overcrowded. Lots of place at the lake and in the various saunas/pools. I can see that most of the negative comments relate to overcrowding. If I came at a busy time, I would not enjoy it either. But do come during a more quiet period as this is a beautiful place. We also did not have an issue with changing robes as we kept ours throughout but yes they do get a bit soggy and paying to have it changed can be frustrating but understandable. Very clean shower/locker rooms. We loved it all but then we received our massages and I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Yanni gave me the best massage I have ever had. If it wasn't so far from home, I would go there for the massage frequently. We only spent about 4 hours here and if we return, we'd make it a full-day affair - would bring a book and take a snooze on one of the many day beds or floating beds on the lake. Only negative comment: their parking is small and although the spa itself did not seem crowded, the top parking lot was full and we had to park on the lower level which was also nearly full. Plus the very fine dust/sand of the parking lot makes a mess of your car.

Suberb site in the beautiful Bromont countryside, supeb buildings in communion with nature, superb spa facilties, superb massages, services, staff, and healthy food! I always delight in the 'Balnea' massage! Ongoing evaluations of staff ensure only the cream of the cream are there to give you the best spa experience possible. Visitors we brought with us were always impressed and have returned on their own. One of my favourite places to go back to being 'Zen'! Great as a couple retreat or with friends.

I have been many times to Balnea over the years and have always appreciated the beautiful grounds, the serene views, the efficient facilities. I have always had a blissful, relaxing, revitalizing experience.
My last experience surpassed all my expectations. My husband and I easily spent the entire day roaming around the flowery grounds, enjoying a swim in the lake, relaxing on big floating beds on the lake, having a delicious and colorful lunch prepared by a famous local chef (Ete des chefs). Both our treatments, massage and facial, were excellent and professional. The day finished with a grounding yoga class thought by very good teacher. The staff is helpfull and professional, the site is high class.
Balnea offers an experience that goes well beyond any other spa: it caters for all the senses in a creative and inspiring way.
