Canada's Top 50 Spas of 2012

Le Nordik Spa, Quebec
Spas of America today announced their annual ranking of the Top 50 Canada Spas of 2012, based on consumer behavior on our website.

“Spas offering escape, rejuvenation and wellness in beautiful outdoor settings continue to prove popular with spa consumers,” says Craig Oliver, Spas of America president and editor-in-chief. “Our most popular Canadian spa experiences encompassed Country, Ocean, Mountain, Destination and Wine, while Urban spas provide a serene oasis for healthy-minded urbanites to relax and recharge in luxurious, sometimes exotic surroundings."

"Canada has an excellent international reputation in the spa industry from a global consumer perspective and also within the industry community itself. It is not only the physical beauty of our spas, but the skill and warmth of our people who design, manage and provide our services. I think it’s part of our spirit as Canadians” says Jack Morrison, past President of Leading Spas of Canada.

The Top 50 Canada Spas of 2012 includes: 21 spas from British Columbia; 8 Quebec spas; 14 Ontario spas; 5 Alberta spas; and two spas from Saskatchewan. Compared to 2011, the number of Ontario spas making the list increased by three, Alberta rose by two, Saskatchewan added one, and British Columbia stayed the same. The number of Quebec spas dropped by five.

Spas of America’s Top 50 Canada Spas of 2012 are ranked by unique page views generated by customers visiting the website throughout the year. Spas of America’s global audience is very targeted: 70% women; 80% USA/Canada; 25 to 65 years; $75k to $250k HHI; leisure and business travelers; and health, wellness and lifestyle oriented. In addition to the USA and Canada, Spas of America draws spa travel consumers from Europe, Asia and South America.
