The best spas in Canada have been revealed and you'll definitely want to add them to your bucket list of relaxing spots to hit up.

The Forbes Travel Guide, which claims to be the "global authority on luxury hospitality," recently added 10 Canadian spas to their list of places that have earned a "Star Rating."

To decide which places make the list, Forbes undergoes rigorous inspections to determine who should be included.

"We visit every hotel, restaurant, and spa that we Star Rate, paying our own way and staying anonymously as a typical guest," they shared.

"No one can buy a rating under any circumstance. Every Star Rating is earned through our objective, independent process."

Take a look below to find out which locations have earned a spot as one of the best spas in Canada!
