Temple Gardens Mineral Spa, Saskatchewan

Located in the heart of downtown Moose Jaw, in southern Saskatchewan, this exquisitely designed luxurious spa resort hotel captures the spirit, history and charm of Western Canadian hospitality and features one of Canada's largest naturally heated geothermal mineral water pools.

Temple Gardens' unique nature-based Sun Tree Spa soothes the mind, body and soul with 12 treatment rooms for massage, facials and wraps. The spa's rejuvenating, mineral-rich geothermal waters are drawn from the porous rock formation of an ancient seabed more than 4,500 feet below the earth's surface. The distinctive indoor/outdoor pool is situated on the top floor of the hotel, permitting treetop views of beautiful Crescent Park from its outdoor section.
