COVID-19: MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

It can’t be said enough – your health and the health of our employees is our number one priority. We’ve created a working group specifically dedicated to responding to COVID-19 and to implementing the recommendations of the public health authorities. We’re also collaborating with the industry at large to produce the highest safety standards worldwide.  

We’ve thoroughly examined each aspect of the spa experience – from the time you make your reservation to the time you leave the spa – and made the necessary adjustments to ensure your safety. We’re implementing a contactless experience as much as possible, significantly reducing capacity to ensure physical distancing, and screening our guests for symptoms on site.

Yes, as you walk through our interior areas. Distancing is mandatory everywhere on site, (indoor and outdoor spaces).

The Province of Manitoba requires that a mask or a full-face piece be worn in enclosed or partially covered public spaces, and/or if the area does not allow physical distancing.

Please, bring your own mask and wear it when you arrive at the spa. Our staff will remind you that it is required to wear it when walking within the spa and the enclosed areas on-site.

  • Wearing a mask is required for all guests during a massage/body treatment (except for face care).
  • It is also required to wear a mask when walking within the spa, such as in hallways and changing rooms, and where physical distancing is not possible.
  • In saunas, our guests are required to wear the mask in the entryway but can remove it immediately before entering the sauna and respect distancing. No talking is permitted in the saunas.
  • Relaxation areas and inside our food service areas, we ask that our guests wear a mask until seated on a bench or seat. These are identified to maintain recommended distancing. It is permitted to remove the mask once comfortably seated. It will have to be put back on when leaving the area.

The mask or full-face piece should be combined with other protective measures to maximize your protection. As such, hand-sanitizing stations are available to enable you to wash/disinfect your hands on a regular basis.

 

As we reopen, see what services are currently available to you and when the other services will become available again. Discover our new security measures, now in place to ensure that your experience here is perfect.

Reservations are required and can be made online or by phone (1 855 284-6868). We will no longer be allowing walk-ins in an effort to control the number of people on site at any given moment. To ensure a contactless experience, you will be required to pay in advance for your reservation at the moment of booking.  

When you make your reservation, you will be required to certify that neither yourself nor any member of your party:  

  • Are experiencing any of the COVID-19 symptoms (including, but not limited to, recent or exacerbated chronic cough, difficulty breathing, sudden loss of smell without nasal congestion and with or without loss of taste, muscle pain, intense fatigue, diarrhea) 
  • Have travelled outside the country in the last 14 days 
  • Are waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test 
  • Have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days 

We ask that our guests work with us to maintain the safety and security both of our employees and of the other guests. If you are feeling ill or experience any symptoms (including, but not limited to, recent or exacerbated chronic cough, difficulty breathing, sudden loss of smell without nasal congestion and with or without loss of taste, muscle pain, intense fatigue, diarrhea) please reschedule your visit by contacting our customer service centre. We will be carefully screening each guest before they enter the spa, and we reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone exhibiting symptoms of any kind.  

Given the current circumstances, we’ve relaxed our cancellation policy, so you have more time to make changes to your reservation. You can now modify your reservation up until the day before your visit by getting in touch with our customer service centre through live chat on our website or by phone. For more information, read our conditions of sale.

  • Once you complete the screening process you will be asked to wash your hands thoroughly and carefully and will then be able to complete the rest of the registration process.
