The Spa at the InterContinental Toronto Centre, Toronto, ON

For our birthdays, Gord and I don't buy each other anything ... we usually take each other to a spa.

My birthday was last Sunday and Gord and I spent the afternoon at the spa at the InterContinental Toronto Centre (Front Street W/Simcoe).

The 8,000 square-foot Spa InterContinental, an AVEDA concept location, offers an essential blend of spa services to refresh your body and mind. Located on the third floor of the InterContinental Toronto Centre Hotel, the spa specializes in massage, body therapy, skin care and aesthetic services. Guests with spa appointments are invited to indulge in this calming oasis and its beautiful solarium, which features 10 treatment rooms and a highly trained, welcoming staff, a 48 foot saline pool, salt hot tub and a scenic terrace.

Gord got us the "Together" package ... a 60 minute side by side massage, a spa lunch and then a 60 minute side by side pedicure.

Here's the ladies' room.  There were two washrooms, two showers with shampoo, conditioner and soap (though one was out of order), a steam room, a vanity with hair dryers, combs, etc., and lockers (you are given a key).

There is a pool, hot tub and loungers ... we got there about 45 minutes to enjoy them.

There is a sundeck where you can lounge.

Our 60 minute massages were fabulous.  Robert was my therapist and Nina was Gord's.  We were really relaxed afterwards.

Then we had our spa lunch ... we were able to choose from the menu.  The food was good.  We shared hummus (minus the olives).

We both got chicken.

We both finished off with fruits and berries.

Time for our pedicures!  I choose Rock Royalty as my polish (Gord got clear).  Andrea and Luni spent a lot of time on our feet ... including doing a seasalt scrub, then a seaweed mask, followed by a peppermint lotion foot and leg massage.

I chose Rock Royalty for my toes.


It's our first time at this spa and it was an enjoyable experience.  We'll be back!
