The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto

A sprawling Toronto retreat
VERIFIED LUXURY
If you want an urban escape, book a treatment at The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto. Set on the ninth floor of the luxurious hotel in Toronto’s Yorkville district, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa spans more than 30,000 square feet — the largest city spa in the Four Seasons brand.

A notable feature of the spa is its unique and subtle celebration of Yorkville’s history. In the 1960s, the area of Toronto now known for all things high-end and luxurious was the place for free spirits to gather and express themselves through art. Paying homage to that, the Toronto spa offers the We Are Yorkville treatment. The 3.5-hour service includes a foot ritual, a dry body brush with ground hemp-seed scrub, a warm honey wrap, a soak and a massage accompanied by patchouli-scented hemp oil.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• As you walk through the largest urban spa in all Four Seasons properties, the ambience is exactly what you hope from a spa experience — calm, welcoming, friendly and relaxing.

• While the chic spa’s floor-to-ceiling windows provide amazing views of Yorkville and surrounding areas, it’s the pool area and balcony that have the finest vistas in the spa.

• A sweet yet refreshing aroma that will follow you through your day there, but it is not invasive. It is a pleasant surprise.

• Feel free to arrive with a bit of an appetite since the relaxation lounges are stocked with tasty snacks like green apples, chocolate biscotti and moist financier-like cookies.

• Whether you want to enjoy an aromatherapy massage alongside your significant other, a family member or a friend, the intimate spa provides treatments for twosomes in its larger suites.
Things to Know
• To set a sleepy mood, choose from five playlists, which include classical music and ambient noises, and then get wrapped in the softest of fur blankets while being treated to massages and facials.

• If you want a proper lunch following your treatment, all you have to do is take the elevator to the second floor where you can enjoy excellent French-influenced cuisine at Café Boulud, the Toronto outpost of Daniel Boulud’s acclaimed New York City eatery.

• The pool areas do tend to get crowded with hotel guests and are a popular spot for families and kids, so if you’re looking for a bit of quiet and zen, head to the invigorating eucalyptus steam room in the back of the relaxation lounge.

• The best way to get an appointment is through its easy-to-use online booking system. However, for questions about specific treatments or if you prefer to talk to a staff member to book your appointment, call the spa directly.

Its body-care line was created exclusively for the Four-Star spa and is available in three scents: honey lavender, white tea bergamot and grapefruit coconut. The body lotion for each fragrance is available at the front desk for you to try.
The Treatments
• The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto offers a variety of massages, catering to the many differing tastes and needs of its patrons.

• Combining a foot bath, Indian head massage, a 60-minute Asian fusion massage, and a 75-minute classic European facial, the Cultural Mosaic of Canada package illustrates Canada’s cultural heritage and diversity.

• Using the healing power of precious minerals and gemstones including rose quartz, platinum, copper and nano-gold as well as sapphires, rubies, diamonds and pearls, the Holistic Sapphire Gemstone Facial also employs Eastern healing techniques enhanced with crystal wands and gemstones to promote lymphatic drainage.

• The Snowbird Ruby Red Grapefruit Scrub. The gentle foaming Snowbird Ruby Red Grapefruit Scrub  sloughs away dry skin cells leaving you silky smooth and glowing. Invigorating ruby red grapefruit essential oils and ground walnut shells produce a rich and luxurious lather that both exfoliates and nourishes.

• The spa’s bright and airy nail bar specializes in shellac manicures and pedicures and offers a good selection of colorful CND polishes.
The Facilities
• Located on the ninth floor, the 30,000-square-foot spa boasts 17 treatment rooms along with an indoor swimming pool and heated whirlpool, a spacious eucalyptus steam room, a light-filled nail bar and hair salon, a small boutique and a 3,500-square-foot gym located one floor down.

• The treatment rooms don’t focus on the views. Instead, they are equipped with blackout curtains, in the hopes that you relax enough to catch a dream or two.

• Couples suites come equipped with two treatment beds, which are covered in the spa’s signature fur blankets. Like all other suites, an iPad is available to choose a playlist of music and heavy curtains cover the floor-to-ceiling windows.

• We love the showers’ natural look — there’s even a wooden ottoman for seating or resting your leg upon while shaving. The bath products are also all-natural or organic, meaning you don’t have to worry about any harsh chemicals.

• The illuminated grooming stations to blow dry and style your hair and primp (there’s even mouthwash to freshen up your smile). With so much to do, it’s easy to spend a full afternoon inside the locker room at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa.
