Why bother trying to relax in the middle of the city? The best way to really decompress is to take yourself away and really enjoy your spa experience. But no need to go too far! Only a short drive north and you can bask in the Kawarthas' fabulous spas and enjoy amazing treatments in natural settings.

The Kawarthas offers full service health spa retreats, resort spas and day spas. You can opt for a full week long cleanse with optional workshops and nutritional counselling, or just pop into a day spa after experiencing the best of recreation in the Kawarthas and get a massage from an RMT.

And if you are looking to beautify, there are plenty of spots to get a new 'do or try a new makeup look. There are even mobile spa options that will come right to your cottage!

Resort Spa Getaways
Invite your girlfriends or a few couples to enjoy a spa getaway at one of our many resorts - a great way to unwind. Put your feet up in a zero-gravity chair as you bask in a foot reflexology treatment while overlooking the lake. Step out feeling lighter and ready to handle anything. Or, enjoy a relaxing chair massage where you leave the city and traffic behind. Knots of tension in your shoulders and back simply melt away as you sink into the chair.

Some Kawartha resorts offer complete onsite spa services, providing professional esthetic treatments and a variety of massage and spa therapies. They have several dedicated spa treatment rooms within the resort so that resort guests need not leave the resort to be pampered, spoiled and truly unwind in luxury. Other Kawartha resorts offer limited spa services onsite, such as in-room massages for couples or singles with a registered Massage therapist, or they might have one private treatment room dedicated exclusively for massages and other spa services like mani-pedis.

Most Kawartha resorts that don't offer in-house spa services, like cottage resorts, fishing lodges and inns that are simply too small to have onsite spa facilities, are more than happy to recommend the best local day spas for guests who wish to treat themselves to a facial, pedicure, manicure or massage during their stay. Some Kawartha resorts partner with a local day spa to provide complete resort accommodation and spa packages where the guest receives their spa treatment at a nearby off-site day spa. These resort and spa packages or spa and accommodations specials are convenient for guests wanting spa services while on vacation and often provide very good value at a special all-inclusive price.
