Sharing is caring!

Are you seeking a delightful way to pamper and relax? As a spa enthusiast, I’m thrilled to introduce you to a gem in downtown Toronto that many might overlook. Tucked away within the Park Hyatt, the recently renovated Stillwater Spa provides a true sense of luxury.

Balancing self-care amid my hectic schedule is challenging, but this urban paradise is just a few steps away from the city’s hustle and bustle. It transports you to an oasis of calm and luxury. Keep reading to uncover how Stillwater Spa provides guests with a top-tier escape featuring exceptional facilities and a personalized approach.

The Setting

As soon as I stepped into the spa, I was impressed by its modern decor and relaxing atmosphere. Warm lighting, neutral colours and luxurious furnishings created a subtle sophistication. Subtle aromatic scents invited my body and mind to relax. 

Evidently, this luxury spa has been carefully designed by Alessandro Munge of Studio Munge to encase guests in comfort and serenity.

Minutes after arriving at the stylish reception desk, I was led to a sparkling relaxation lounge in the spa, where I filled out my intake forms over a revitalizing herbal tea.

Remember to arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled treatment to enjoy the expansive sauna and steam room.

Afterwards, treat yourself to refreshing fruit-infused water and savour a delightful spa bite treat from the beautifully appointed lounge.  

Personalized Service

Dedicated to pampering its guests, Stillwater’s highly attentive staff makes each visit feel special through thoughtful customization based on preferences and needs. From when you arrive to when you depart, the spa team anticipates every detail to actualize your vision of comfort and care. You’re warmly greeted by name and escorted swiftly through check-in. 

Post-treatment, you’re invited to relax with refreshing elixirs, artfully crafted bites and soft loungewear as you gradually reacclimate to the outside world.

The Treatment  

When I saw the spa’s expansive treatment menu, I knew I was in for a fully customized pampering session. With so many options to address every need, I was like a kid in a candy store! Eager to release stress, I decided to indulge in Stillwater’s signature 60-minute Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience massage. 

Hyatt’s Signature Services

Stillwater Spa also offers one-of-a-kind personalized Signature Services exclusive to Park Hyatt spas worldwide. These specialized treatments artfully honour indigenous well-being practices to craft an elevated experience.

The Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience I selected pays homage to the spa’s Toronto location through therapeutic Aromatherapy Associates scrubs and essential oils. As she massaged my body with the oil, I reached a state of complete calm. This treatment nourished my skin and spirit.

Aromatherapy Associates is renowned for its essential oil formulas, which encompass a variety of scent blends across home fragrance, skincare, and body care. Founded over three decades ago by Geraldine Howard and Sue Beechey, the brand aimed to make the benefits of aromatherapy more accessible—a practice centred on using aroma to enhance both emotional and physical well-being.

Anyone who has tried Aromatherapy products has come to the conclusion that this is a premier product.

As an avid spa-goer, massage treatments are my go-to therapy. I was thrilled to find various massage options to target specific needs are available for guests:

Swedish and aromatherapy massages promise full-body relaxation using light-to-medium pressure. In contrast, hot stone massages incorporate heated stones and massage techniques to penetrate tension deeper.

Guests can even curate dual massages for a shared couples experience. Beyond unwinding massages, Stillwater offers facials, body wraps, scrubs and more to tackle other concerns like hydration, anti-aging, detoxification, you name it. 

Full Menu of Treatments

Facial Treatments

Facials are tailored to individual skin needs with a personal consultation, followed by a regimen of cleansing, exfoliation masks and serums. Radiance facials incorporate glycolic peel technology to unveil a glowing, youthful complexion. Cryotherapy ice facials leverage below-freezing stainless steel tools to tone and firm. Those seeking a gentle approach may prefer an organic botanical facial utilizing plant-based ingredients to hydrate skin.

Body Scrubs and Wraps

For full-body rejuvenation, I eyed the spa’s body scrubs and wraps. Unique combinations of mineral and salt scrubs deeply exfoliate to smooth texture and improve tone. Body wraps such as purifying clay or replenishing mud infuse skin with minerals and nutrients while cocooned in warmth. The experience concludes with gentle moisture application, reinstating supple, healthy-looking skin. 

Mani/Pedi’s 

A pedicure at the Stillwater Spa is an experience to remember. Both manicures and pedicures use the product Dazzle Dry. Its vegan, cruelty-free polish promotes healthier nails and dries in just five minutes, delivering a stunning, gel-like finish without the need for harsh UV light. My nails have never felt better, and the polish lasted for months. 

After the treatment, I ascended the enchanting black staircase and reentered the outside world. Almost instantly, my visit to Stillwater Spa presented me with precious instances of self-care and serenity.

Although I was graciously treated to a complimentary experience, I want to emphasize that my opinions shared here are entirely authentic. I sincerely thank Stillwater Spa and Park Hyatt for hosting this special experience.
