If the stunning views from the rooftop pool, unmatched tennis program or rooms worth writing home about weren’t reasons enough to check out Toronto’s shiny new(ish) Hotel X, we have another one for you: a Guerlain Spa.
Hotel X Toronto by Library Hotel Collection has partnered with the prestigious French beauty house Guerlain to create a luxurious, 10-room urban oasis within the stylish hotel. With sweeping views across Lake Ontario, the newly opened Guerlain Spa offers exclusive treatments in a sleek and ever-so-elegant, yet welcoming, environment.
All beauty experts are trained in Guerlain rituals and knowledgeable of the full range of Guerlain’s time-tested products. At the very beginning of the treatment, and with eyes closed, the client is asked to explore olfactory universes by smelling four elixirs. These represent four invitations to travel, as each spa-goer choses his or her own perfect destination. Whether the choice is relaxing, enveloping, energizing or detoxifying, the goal is to disconnect and indulge in a truly sensorial experience. The Guerlain experience is based on a global vision that takes into account lifestyle, nutrition, breathing, sophrology and meditation.
Some of the Toronto-exclusive experiences offered at the Guerlain Spa at Hotel X are the Lake Ontario Hot Stones Massage, Glamour in Toronto and the Made-to-Measure, which is created on request and is temptingly described as” like slipping into a haute couture dress.” Sigh.
The Toronto location joins the group of 40 Guerlain Spas worldwide in cities including New York City, Paris, Dubai and others. Other wellness-focused talking points at Hotel X Toronto include four indoor tennis courts and nine squash courts, a cutting edge TechnoGym fitness facility and dedicated studios for yoga, Pilates and spinning.
