A day at the spa is made even better when the said spa is nestled in Ontario’s peaceful wilderness (yet, just over an hour away from the Toronto grind) and immediately puts you in vacation mode. A staple all-seasons resort since 1985, Mono, Ontario’s Hockley Valley Resort offers a refined yet cozy spa experience that comes with the added perks of resort amenities.
It’s finally warming up in the city and I make up any excuse to hit the beach. Bikini season calls for heavy-duty maintenance on the hairy jungle that you’ve neglected all winter (hey, don’t judge!). Fortunately, the newly opened Yonge and Eglinton location of Fuzz Wax Bar came to my rescue. I tried their Brazilian, and was impressed by their speedy effort and solid quality of the treatment.
I was one of the lucky people who got an opportunity to check out the newly-renovated Viamede Resort last weekend just before this upcoming Victoria Day long weekend. Being not even two hours drive away from Toronto near Peterborough, you get a great view of quiet and peaceful Stoney Lake with no sign of civilization. Fresh air can seem almost endless out here, dare I say.
Like many of us these days, over-worked and stressed out, I’m always looking for natural therapeutic treatments that allow me to fully escape from a demanding lifestyle. A new and unique form of luxury spa service comes to Toronto that allows you to do just that…while floating on water. Recently opened at Broadview and Danforth, H2O Float Spa offers floatation therapy. Hoping to cure my worsening insomnia, I had the pleasure of experiencing a float session.
