Advertisements for spas make it all look so easy. From cascading indoor waterfalls to beautiful women sitting in rooms filled with rose petals, they seem to call to a life that isn't for the Toronto urbanite. Even a traveler to Toronto just wants to get in as many activities as possible. Doing nothing doesn't seem high on the list of priorities.
Let us invite you to reconsider. Although it may not look like it at first glance, Toronto is actually the ideal place to decompress. The award winning spas pepper the entire city, providing a welcome release from the city that goes day and night.
If you still need some convincing, consider the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Hammam Spa, right on King Street in the heart of downtown Toronto can transport you to bathing rituals that originated thousands of years ago. Sit until you feel like you are going to melt in the steam room, then reposition yourself on a white marble table with candlelight surrounding you. Or treat your spa day as a romantic opportunity and indulge in a couple's massage at the Toronto Luxury Stillwater Spa. Just the atmosphere alone may help to set your cares free.
Turn your phone off for a few hours and make friends with a terry cloth bathrobe. This is not one of those choices in life that you will regret.
