Relaxation is a way of life at Ste. Anne’s Spa, so it felt like the perfect spot to sneak away for a mother-daughter getaway. My Mom and I have never gone away on our own before, and I felt we both could use some pampering. As Canada’s largest spa, we were not disappointed with Ste. Anne’s Spa.

The Ste. Anne’s philosophy focuses on creating an atmosphere to help rebuild your strength, recapture your energy, and reflect on what’s truly important in your life. Taking time for yourself is crucial, otherwise your health, family, work and spiritual needs will suffer. We’re proud to offer you what our body and spirits need most: relaxation, revitalization and a chance to heal from the intensity of our daily routines.

The stone buildings and beautiful gardens were inviting, as were the staff at Ste. Anne’s. Upon checking in we were greeted with a tour of the buildings and provided comfy robes to wear during our stay. We were staying in the Haldimand East cottage which was just a short ride up the road from the main building.

We were invited to choose one wellness class and one spa service as part of our stay. There are many great options for wellness classes but I knew my Mom would enjoy the garden tour. We set out on our tour with two very knowledgeable guides, a friendly great dane who lives at Ste. Anne’s and three other guests.

Our tour guided us through vegetable gardens that grow food served at Ste. Anne’s. We enjoyed gorgeous flower beds, herb gardens and a field of rose bushes. Lavender is grown in a circular pattern (below) and most of the flowers and plants at Ste. Anne’s serve a secondary purpose. The rose petals are used in essential oils, as are other plants. It is refreshing to learn that Ste. Anne’s has a strong focus on sustainability.

There are 400 acres of land to explore at Ste. Anne’s, and the views are beautiful in every direction. Guests can follow trails for hikes and take in all of the beauty on their own.

We both chose a Swedish Massage as our spa service, which we enjoyed on our second day at Ste. Anne’s. Combining the massage with the hot tubs loosens the muscles and ensures you never want to leave the spa. We also tried the Eucalyptus steam room, the plunge pool and the indoor and outdoor hot tubs. We grabbed some relaxation in a room with massage chairs and foot massagers, and we enjoyed some delicious meals.

The menu at Ste. Anne’s is developed with health and flavour in mind. From eggs benedict to free range beef, we were never hungry during our stay. The portion sizes were exactly what we needed and we had no guilt when we enjoyed dessert.

The stay went entirely too fast because we enjoyed every moment of it. One of my lucky readers can also enjoy a stay at Ste. Anne’s Spa.

  1. I have never had a stone massage so I would love to try the AROMA STONE MASSAGE. It sounds great.

  2. I had a hard time picking between 2 but I think I would choose the Coconut Lime scrub & a massage

  3. I would love to try their Spa Bundles – specifically DETOXIFY . I need all these services! Eucalyptus Body Wrap, Reflexology, Integrated Lymphatic Drainage to clean up my body.

  4. I would love to have a facial and a massage. My skin could really use a professional facial so badly. I would feel pampered.

  5. Sorry – disregard the last comment. I do hear great things about Ste Anne’s and I’d love to get a Swedish Massage!

  6. I would love the Coconut Breeze! The benefits are amazing: • Cleanses, purifies and renews the spirit
    & the mind
    • Rejuvenates the skin, protects it
    from infection, and reduces body odour
    due to a presence of a large amount of Vitamin C and flavanoids

  7. A couples massage – my girls aren’t quite old enough to go to St. Anne’s so I’d take hubby for a much needed just us getaway!

  8. ******Oh my there is so much to choose from!!!! Would love a mud bath, facial,or massage!!******

  9. My daughter moved to Calgary and met a lovely young man. The month she was to deliver their first baby girl, he got custody of his two girls. Bec became mom to three little very active girls all in one month. Now she’s bringing the whole family back to Ontario – would love to treat her to a much needed relaxing spa treatment – she deserves it!

  10. I used to work at Ste. Anne’s but have never actually had a massage! Would absolutely love a Eucalyptus Body Wrap (and a serious session in the Eucalyptus Steam Room!). My mom is certainly over-worked and under-appreciated, but I’m not sure what her go-to would be for spa treatments – maybe one of the seasonal treatments will pique her interest. 🙂

  11. All the treatments sound so good it would be hard to pick one but I think I would go for the Swedish massage

  12. Moor Mud Hydro Wrap, It really sounds like something I would enjoy, could benefit from, and would not otherwise be something I would do!

  13. I am having a c-section tomorrow morning, this is my second high-risk pregnancy & I will have two children under 2! Just being on this gorgeous property would be a major stress reducer, but a Citrus Sun treatment would make it even more heavenly!
