The Best Spas in Toronto

The best spas in Toronto offer a luxurious escape from day-to-day life, provided you're willing to fork over a healthy amount of cash for that urban getaway. Most of Toronto's top relaxation destinations are situated in high-end hotels studded around the downtown core - suitable, given the luxe surroundings and often-elaborate treatments on the menu.

Whether you're looking for a tension-busting massage, a glow-boosting facial, an exotic 30-ingredient body treatment, or just a really good sweat in a steam room, these spas will serve it up (with a side of herbal tea).

Here are the best spas in Toronto.
