We all need some well-deserved R&R from time to time, but who can afford a week off work or squeeze a quick get-away in between weekend events just to relax? With meetings here, soirées there, children to look after and meals to plan there’s minimal “you” time.
If you’re a busybody like the majority of Torontonians craving some pampering in the city, we’ve got you covered. Here are the perfect ways to pamper yourself in Toronto so that you can enjoy a stay-cation in your very own city!

1. Soak in the Ocean @ Solana Salt Cave
302 Lakeshore Rd. E, Oakville
Not only is this unique location devoted to relaxation, but the salt cave offers endless health benefits and even mimic the air atmosphere of a real beach.
A tropical beach in Toronto? Sign me up!
2. Take a Steam @ The Ritz-Carlton Spa
181 Wellington St. W
The simplest form of pampering would be to visit a spa, but if you’re going to have a spa day you should definitely go all out and visit one of Toronto’s most extravagant spas!
The Ritz’s steam room, green tea infused pool, and refreshingly bright lounge area craft the perfect recipe for relaxation.
Not to mention the snack selection is one of the best I’ve seen at any spa in Toronto!
3. Enjoy A Mani and Moët @ Her Majesty’s Pleasure
556 King St. W
When you’ve got polished piggies everything in this world feels right.
Plus when you’ve got a cocktail to pair with your foot massage, who could say no to that?
4. Sip Some Afternoon Tea @ The Fairmont Royal York
100 Front St.
Something about eating mini sandwiches and delicious scones just makes a person feel extravagant.
A tradition of theirs for over 80 years, the Fairmont guarantees a fabulous selection of teas and an array of decadent pastries to pair.
5. Float Your Stresses Away @ H20 Float Spa
138 Danforth Ave
The ultimate pampering experience has to be floating in a bed of calming waters. It’s no salty ocean, but it comes pretty close after a stressful week in the city.
Grab your own bed, book a massage as you float, or just simply float your stresses away!
6. Perfect Your Makeup Style @ Bite Lip Lab
678 Queen St. W
If activities are how you pamper yourself why not make your own lipstick to take home? You can customize your stick and enjoy some quality girl time too.
7. Admire “A Street Car Named Desire”
The National Ballet of Canada
The perfect place to sport your customized lipstick! Make it a day event to create your own makeup and then watch one of the most popular plays at the Ballet.
A ballet performance is relaxing and beautiful to watch, making it one of the best ways to pamper yourself and your date!
8. Chomp on a Juicy Steak @ Jacobs & Co Steakhouse
12 Brant St.
Treat yo’ self with a juicy steak at the top steakhouse in the city. Just don’t fill up on the delicious sides or you won’t have room for the take-home treats to enjoy in the last moments of your day of pampering.
9. End off The Day With A Shake @ Hollywood Cone
1167 Queen St. W
Oh comfort food! This place is crucial to the definition of pampering. After meal planning and running endless kilometers all week, you deserve to stuff your face into one of the colossal milkshakes this place has to offer.

10. Truly Pamper Yourself and Your Wardrobe @ Saks Fifth Avenue

Retail therapy always does me good. With the summer season approaching, the racks are FILLED with sale items for you to indulge in or splurge and get that new Birkin bag you’ve been eyeing!
Enjoy your stay-cation in the city. Torontonians work extremely hard and we all deserve a nice extravagant pampering every once in a while! Get those nails painted, see a show, splurge on a new outfit and indulge in the most expensive steak and bottle of wine you can find!
