new amenities at ste. anne's spa
by Lynn Burshtein
Ste. Anne’s Spa in Grafton, Ontario has recently added new facilities and offerings and has launched its brand at the retail level. Changes onsite include a new, four-bedroom spa cottage called Vista Lago – “lake view” in Spanish – which boasts views of the Northumberland Hills as well as Lake Ontario on the horizon.
The cottage features a living room, two bathrooms, two fire places and a large kitchen. The cottage will also serve as a meeting place for group retreats for up to 12 people and is perfect for small group fitness retreats or culinary classes.
Expanded equine experiences, including a four-night “Learn to Ride” program, is another addition as is the upgraded fitness facility called Maison Santé. This new facility is complete with state-of-the-art equipment plus an outdoor pool that features an underwater treadmill. A second outdoor swimming pool, to be located right outside the spa’s reception area, is also in the works.
Ste. Anne’s still offers its wide array of spa treatments and now guests have the new line of retail products to take home with them. The recently-introduced Ste. Anne’s Skin Nourishment product line for hair, body and face is a 100% botanical line made with ingredients grown right in the spa’s garden and available for sale in the retail shop and online.
In addition, there is a new, stand-alone bakery onsite, offering gluten-free goodies such as breads, cakes and tarts, as well as healthy meals-to-go. Of course, the spa continues to serve up its nutritious spa cuisine to guests.
Spread across 400 acres of rolling countryside, Ste Anne’s Spa is one of Ontario’s premiere and most established spas and it is also consistently ranked as one of Canada’s favourite destination spas.
