W Montreal

Ultra-trendy is the best way to describe W Montreal and its warm, cozy zen-like spa appropriately called Away Spa. The Away Spa is a full service spa with services that include body treatments such as the Aromatic Body Touch Wrap, or facials using Comfort Zone products including Essential, Rebalance and Vitality. Their signature treatments include the Action Sublime Facial and the D-Age Body Firming.

The 152 guest room and 28 suite W Montreal oozes "hip"! The hotel is situated in the gentrified Quartier International District, steps from Montreal's bustling downtown and Old Montreal filled with boutiques, galleries and restaurants.

The Eastern Townships

If a country spa holiday is more your style, just over an hour outside of Montreal is the gateway to the Eastern Townships. The Eastern Townships sure know a thing or two about spa resorts…boasting of some of the country's best.
