Focusing on self-care, improving health and wellness in the New Year may have been on your family’s resolution list — make it a reality with a well-planned vacation. Wrap all your resolutions into one and take a couple’s retreat, family vacation or getaway with a small group and opt for a spa-centric vacation in the New Year. Head to Ontario, Canada, for a swath of luxurious options, including some deep in the bush.

Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain

Escape into the rural, wild landscape of Ontario at the Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain location. Surrounded by views of Blue Mountain Resort slopes and the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve Niagara Escarpment, guests will feel at ease by natural beauty therapy alone. Sitting on more than 25 acres of Canadian maples trees, the Spa boasts as much outer beauty as it does wellness treatments.

The Briars Resort and Spa

Located on Lake Simcoe with a tranquil atmosphere and a lineup of treatments, Briars Resort and Spa is a retreat to remember. Whether a guest of the resort or spa member, relaxation-seekers choose from facials and treatments or massages and hydrotherapy with a view.

Ste. Anne’s

 The stone-clad buildings and Main Inn make up the beautiful property of Ste. Anne’s. Guests flock to the luxury retreat for spa services and rejuvenating treatments or even equine experiences. Choose from packages and experiences, including dining and wellness classes, or stick to the spa cottage menu and spend the day relaxing in the wonderland of wellness.

Christienne Fallsview Spa

Sitting on the edge of Buffalo, New York, Christienne Fallsview Spa offers unbeatable views of the Falls. Step into relaxation right on the Canadian border and get the best of both countries with unparalleled sights mixed with the oasis of therapy treatments.

Langdon Hall Country House Hotel & Spa

The spa at Landon Hall Country House is just one of 14 properties in Canada. Located in the Carolinian Forest, Landon Hall is a 5-star experience to an incredible country escape, but with all the trappings of a lavish getaway. Between the dining, accommodations, property views and impeccable service, the spa promises to be a relaxing retreat to say the least.

Between the recovering and rejuvenating treatments, healthy dining options and outdoor activities throughout the spa and resort, guests take their pick of self-care options.

If you don’t know how the kids will fare with a spa treatment, taking just one spa day out of your regularly planned vacation is a great way to enjoy the perks of the local wellness centers without fully committing to a full vacation centered on wellness.
