Hot List: Club D’Elite Spa

club-delite-5

We found our own private oasis just outside Toronto and it’s called Club D’Elite Spa. It sincerely feels like you’re on vacation – not too shabby for a 30 min drive outside the Toronto core. They proudly boast that they’re the biggest spa of its kind in Ontario, so you’re going to have to put aside a few hours to fully enjoy everything they’ve got to offer. They’ve got a massive co-ed whirlpool beside a freezing cold dip pool that refreshes you to near enlightenment. This place isn’t your typical spa either – they’re open until 2am and offer an awesome all-you-can-eat buffet with their treatment packages. Pro-tip: Snack on fruit plates, while getting your feet rubbed all while watching your favourite Netflix show on their big screen in the lounge area.
