The Elmwood Spa is on Elm Street in downtown Toronto, with Yorkville and Cabbagetown a few blocks away. The spa is a stress detoxifier that allows visitors to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The Elmwood Spa is known for an atmosphere that is urban, serene, relaxing, and therapeutic. The spa was designed by Gordon & Helliwell, and finalized by Edward James Lennox, who also designed the Casa Loma, the Old City Hall, and St. Paul’s Anglican Church. This alluring yet peaceful spa features four floors that include 34 treatment rooms, a swimming pool, a juice bar, a steam room, a whirlpool, and water therapies.
Elmwood invites those attending the spa retreats to participate in preparing for the treatment through activities like soaking in the whirlpool, sweating it out in the steam room, or doing a few laps to warm up. All spa retreats include whirlpools, swimming pools, water therapy, and steam rooms. Full-day retreats last up to 6 hours and cost $440, with the Revival Retreat and the Decadent Retreat popular options.
