Ste. Anne’s Spa

Grafton, Ont.

The biggest destination spa in Canada is a 90-minute drive east of Toronto, set on more than 400 acres of farmland. It’s actually a heritage fieldstone castle that dates to 1858. Visitors come for the facials, massages and body wraps, and the reiki and reflexology, and stay for the healthy dining and romantic stress relief.
Top tip: Book into one of the spa cottages, which are set off anywhere from 500 to 1,500 metres away from the main buildings. They are more spacious and more private, and some have outdoor hot tubs.
