Only 20 minutes from Ottawa Amerispa Spa Nordique Cantley is a peaceful retreat perfect relaxing. Located in the hills of Outaouais and surrounded by forest Amerispa Spa Nordique Cantley allows you to do the thermal cycle alternating between hot, cold and rest to help you achieve a deep state of relaxation.
To help you alternate between hot and cold temperatures the spa offers two hot tubs, one pool that is warm, and a cold plunge pool. There also is a Finnish dry sauna and a lemon-scented steam bathroom room to help you warm up, along with cold waterfalls and showers to quickly lower your body temperature. After completing the hot and cold it is time to let your body rest, and there is an indoor lounge with a fireplace, along with a variety of lounge chairs and hammocks on the terrace.
To help you relax you can also sign up for yoga classes or treat yourself to a massage, mani, pedi or other body treatments. If you a hungry there is also a bistro overlooking the spa that serves sandwiches and salads.
When I visited the spa it was raining, but the light rain made for a nice time to visit. As I was going to be wet already I didn’t notice the rain too much, and I appreciated how quite the spa was because of the weather. When I visited there were only around 5 guests at the spa, so it made for a very private and relaxing experience. Like most spas, this one does require silence then the entire time you are there, but surrounded by forest, a Buddhist sculpture, and pools I did quickly relax.
I was pleasantly surprised to find admission to the Nordic baths and saunas at Amerispa Spa Nordique Cantley also included a towel, bathrobe, slippers and a locker as many spas do charge extra for the bathrobe. For me, the biggest perks about this spa would have to be the price which is $45.00 for the day or $35.00 for the evening with the robe and locker included makes it an affordable way to pamper yourself.
