The leading spa travel website Spas of America today announced their annual ranking of the Top 100 Spas of 2012, based on consumer behavior on their website.

“Spas offering authentic and personalized rejuvenation and wellness in beautiful outdoor settings continue to prove popular with North American spa consumers,” says Spas of America president Craig Oliver. “Destination spa experiences continue to be popular for consumers looking to experience a week or more of wellness, while Country, Ocean, Beach and Wine spa experiences are attractive to spa connoisseurs with limited time to escape.”

Hello Dorothy,

Thank-you for your comment.

Ottawa has many wonderful spas to visit. Here are two suggestions - a hotel spa, and an outdoor nordic spa. Both have great reputations.



Let us know how it goes!
