TORONTO, ON (January 22, 2019) – On the heels of their 25th anniversary, Grail Springs Retreat Centre for Wellbeing (2004 Bay Lake Road, Bancroft, Ontario) has once again been named winner of Canada’s Best Wellness Retreat for the third consecutive year, by the World Spa Awards, which acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across the rapidly evolving spa and wellness sector. In celebration of this milestone anniversary and award, the celebrated retreat announces Winter Spa Fest, a special offering for upcoming guests (outlined below), catering to the improvement of visitor’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
As a special thank you, during the period of February 9, 2019 to March 9, 2019, visitors of Grail Springs’ first ever Winter Spa Fest will receive 25th anniversary themed incentives such as 25% off all spa treatments, $25 spa tastings (anything from a back, neck and shoulder massage by the fire, a relaxing foot massage to Reiki), snowshoe excursions to their crystal outcrop meditation area, evening walks by lantern across the lake, campfires with Mayan hot chocolate chili and much more. The retreat will also be introducing their new aromatherapy product line ‘Grail Alchemy’ made from the beautiful waters of their spring-fed lake.
“25 years ago, during a blackout caused by a winter storm, we received our very first paying guests at what is now known as Grail Springs Retreat Centre for Wellbeing. The building was under construction and we were in the final phases of painting, tiling, putting in carpets and receiving deliveries of furniture,” says Founder & CEO, Grail Springs Retreat Centre for Wellbeing’s Madeleine Marentette. “At approximately 8 p.m., a convoy of lights were seen coming down our driveway. It was several Hydro One trucks and personnel looking for a place to lay their heads. All from out of town, they had heard there was a chance we could house them as all other accommodations were full. With only mattresses on the floor, they cared not. We scurried to find the new sheets, blankets and pillows (in the dark) and lo and behold made our first dollar. Grail Springs has been shining light in to people’s lives since the day it opened – during a blackout. I am so proud that Grail Springs has not only survived so much adversity and hardship itself, but is now a consistent and trusted lamp-stand for others who seek guidance in their health and wellbeing.”
Recognized for their educational component and specialized treatment processes such as the Cleanse and Energize Program and their signature Life Transformation Program, Grail Springs welcomes guests from all over the world to experience their healing alkaline waters, saunas, salt tubs and healing spa. From yoga, meditation and spiritual enrichment, to a full menu of healthy plant-based eating options, the full-service retreat offers cutting edge treatments, delivered by a dedicated staff of highly regarded coaches, instructors, healers and therapists.
Setting the retreat apart from others is their unique environment which boasts a vital spring-fed lake and meditation installations such as a labyrinth, volcanic ash healing bed, and a unique equine meditation experience. The group also worked with a professional Geomancer to optimize the rich deposits of minerals of the area. The property highlights the crystals and granite rocks which leads to a unique crystal outcrop meditation area.
No stranger to receiving accolades, Grail Springs will be adding their third World Spa award to an impressive list of recognition including Canadian Spa & Wellness Award Winner, Tripadvisor Traveler’s Choice Award, Tripadvisor Winner Certificate of Excellence and SpaFinder Best Body, Mind & Spirit Spa, among many others. With over 35% of guests returning annually for an average stay of 5 to 21 nights, Grail Springs has become a popular healing ritual for guests from around the globe.
