When it comes to Ottawa, we don't have to many spas that are also hotels. We have a couple, and they're super well known. Of course everyone and their mom has been to Nordik Spa-Nature, for obvious reasons, but I found a hidden gem that I think will blow that out of the water... almost literally.
If we don't have something cool in Ottawa, we can probably find it just about a half hour drive from us. First a cat cafe, a swimming hole, and now a spa where you can stay overnight. In Wakefield, Quebec, you can find a cool hotel and spa that's pretty much floating on water. Just look at these photos.
Moulin Wakefield Mill Hotel & Spa can easily be your home away from home. With rushing waters all towards the back of the hotel and spa, you'd actually think the hotel was floating on water. Just about a half an hour drive from Ottawa is this stunning spa, but it obviously has more to offer than just the rushing waters. You can be pampered, dine, and sleep at Moulin Wakefield Mill Hotel & Spa, and that's exactly what you should do there.
They have pools that you can relax in as well as hot tubs, so from morning to night you'll be relaxed. And if you really want to take the relaxation up a notch, you can also practise yoga here as a part of the spa packages.
For rooms, you have a few to choose from and you can even choose to stay in a private chalet! For treatments, you can choose anything from massages, to facials, to mani/pedis. They have it all! Since the hotel and spa is surrounded by water, the sound of waves crashing makes it feel like you're in an actual dream. It's amazing.
If you're looking for a place to relax out of Ottawa but still close to home, Moulin Wakefield Mill Hotel & Spa is where you want to go. It's open all year round, so no matter if it's freezing cold or hot AF, you can still have such a relaxing time. As a bit of history, this mill used to be a flour mill back in 1838, and in 2000 it was transformed into what it is now which is an amazing place to get away.
Moulin Wakefield Mill Hotel & Spa is located at 60 Chemin Mill. For more information on rates, packages, and location, check out their website here.
