The Ottawa Skin Clinic (349 St. Laurent Blvd.)

The Ottawa Skin Clinic is the city’s prime spot for all your aesthetic needs. From BOTOX to laser hair removal and trendy cosmetic techniques like HydraFacials and CoolSculpting, you can rest assured that all their services are provided by top-trained professionals that will have you feeling and looking your best. We also can’t get over how chic and beautiful the clinic is!

The Ten Spot (625 Bank St., 397 Richmond Rd., & 451 Hazeldean Rd., Unit #3)

At The Ten Spot everyone deserves to #FeelLikeATen! The atmosphere at this trendy nail spot is both casual and chic and is just the perfect spot for a gal date. What began as a single salon on Queen West in Toronto a few years back is now a national phenomenon with over 20 locations across the country, including three right here in Ottawa.

Au Naturel Spa (525 Legget Dr.)

Au Naturel Spa, located in the Brookstreet Hotel, has a wide variety of customizable and personalized services such as mani-pedis, massages and Vichy water treatments. Whether you're a guest of the hotel or simply live in the area, Au Natural Spa is your spot to indulge in yourself a little bit. As a cool perk, spend $50 or more at the spa and you receive complimentary use of their Flex Fitness Studio, saltwater pools, saunas, hot tubs and more.

The Upkeep Shoppe (358 Preston St.)

The Upkeep Shoppe is an adorable nail salon and spa that caters to all your needs from manicures and pedicures to waxes and massages. Their dedication and expertise has paid off–the Upkeep team are the proud recipients of various Top Choice Awards and were also named the Ontario Day Spa of the Year in 2017. We are a big fan of the shop’s spa treatments in which they use all-natural ingredients that yield powerful results.

ORESTA Organic Skincare (464 O’Connor St., 137 Beechwood Ave., & 1121 Wellington St. W.)

With three locations across the city, quality skincare products and services are never too far away. ORESTA is all about all things organic and natural, staying away from chemical treatments and opting for services such as facials, body scrubs and soaks with botanical, cruelty-free products. They also offer eyebrow tinting done with naturally-derived dyes.

ISÖ Spa Floatation Centre (464 Bank St., Unit #5)

If you're looking for a unique relaxation experience in Ottawa, look no further than ISÖ SPA's floatation therapy. Clear the clutter in your mind by floating in 1,000 liters of water, heated to body temperature, and mixed with over 1,200 pounds of Epsom salts. Besides the salt water your skin feel nice, floatation therapy is also said to have many mind and soul benefits.

Holtz Spa (135 Rideau St.)

Holtz Spa is Ottawa's biggest full-service day spa and it really offers every service imaginable! From mani-pedis to romantic couple massages, rest assured that whatever you're there for, you'll be in good hands. Make sure to follow them on social media to keep up with all the special promotions and packages they often offer.

Nestled in the Richmond neighbourhood, Spotlight Hair and Spa offers a wide variety of services such as facial treatments, hand and foot care, eyelash extensions, Swedish massages and much more! Spotlight's friendly and down-to-earth staff are a testament to making quality service a priority.

York Street Spa (11 York St.)

York Street Spa is a relaxing retreat in the heart of downtown. They believe in helping you reach your physiological, emotional and spiritual peak while enjoying your visit. Whether you are seeking a standard manicure or a full day of pampering look no further than this Ottawa gem.

High Definition Nails & Spa (140 Holland Ave.)

This spot is one of the most popular nail spots in Ottawa and for good reason. The gorgeous decor, with sleek stone walls and wooden floors, will make you feel like you've been transported to a far away spa even though you're right in the middle of a suburb. They offer various services including mani-pedis, lash extensions, facials, and more.
