Five Reasons Why One of the World’s Best Spas is in Montreal


Montreal, Canada

Spa Four Seasons Montreal is only one of two Canadian spas to receive the coveted Forbes Five Star Spa Award in 2020, placing it among the worldwide elite of its industry. Located inside Four Seasons Hotel Montreal, chic and modern, with a strong lifestyle feel, Spa Four Seasons Montreal has become a major Montreal attraction for locals and global jet-setters.

Here are five enticing reasons (one for each star) to discover this heaven of serenity:

1. World-class hospitality

Spa Four Seasons Montreal has earned an unmatched reputation for intuitive hospitality and attention to service, driven by a team of massage therapists and facialists committed to upholding the highest standards of their profession with a caring, human touch. Ranking above all other attributes, the passion of its craftsmen enables them to listen, to foresee their guests’ needs, and to customise expert treatments for each individual.

2. Urban sanctuary

Located in the heart of downtown’s bustling Golden Square Mile, Spa Four Seasons Montreal is an exclusive and intimate cocoon, where every detail has been designed to help guests disconnect, de-stress, and feel transported into a world of peace and serenity. Privacy being a priority, Spa Four Seasons Montreal consists of a series of intimate spaces, completely isolated from other guests and Hotel distractions. Even its best-in-class massage tables have heating capabilities and headrest-embedded high tech and high touch music speakers to enhance the experience.

3. Luxurious and exclusive treatments

The treatments at Spa Four Seasons Montreal stand out for their high degree of human expertise and their application of luxurious and rare products by local and international beauty and skincare labels, exclusive in Montreal. In addition to personalised massages, body scrubs and facials with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and brightening properties, specialty treatments include advanced cryotherapy (the focused application of low temperatures) and luminotherapy (the recreation of sunlight benefits through artificial light).

4. Kneipp Hydrotherapy

The only Kneipp Hydrotherapy facility with a stone path in Canada can be found, like a mystical secret, within the walls of Spa Four Seasons Montreal. Originally developed as a water cure in the 19th century by German monk Sebastien Kneipp, the treatment involves a natural reflexology walk over a path of river stones to massage acupressure points on the foot and an interplay of hot and cold water on the skin that widens the arteries, stimulates the blood flow and the metabolism, and strengthens the immune system.

5. Sophisticated modern interior design

Imagined by celebrity interior designer Philip Hazan as a cocoon of wellbeing within Four Seasons Hotel Montreal, Spa Four Seasons Montreal welcomes guests into a harmonious environment inspired by the Nantucket seaside. Its eight luxurious treatment rooms showcase raffia walls and whitewashed wood panels, and a Spa VIP suite for couples features a private entrance and its own bath and shower. Soothing soft colours, organic materials, hypnotic oasis waterfalls, and beckoning furniture enrich distinct pre and post-treatments areas, including an interior sky-lit swimming pool with a contemporary Roman bath feel, and a modern steam room and sauna space.
