Our Main Commitments
Physical distance respected
To encourage more relaxation, our installations have been reorganized to permit 2 metres between guests. Guests are also limited to groups of 2 people.

Relaxation in the heart of nature is at the core of everything we do. For the next while, we will reduce the number of guests experiencing the spa in order to open up space in common areas indoors and even in our outdoor amenities.

We commit to provide a safe, accessible and sustainable environment for everyone. We monitor daily our employees and massage therapist’s health conditions. Greeting areas, workspaces and break rooms have also been reorganized to accommodate physical distancing.
All our facilities are open since Sunday June 28. Reservations for massages could be made online or by phone.

What hygiene measures and sanitary guidelines has the spa implemented?
Our cleaning and sanitation protocol has always exceeded the requirements of health authorities. During daily operations and overnight, in-depth cleaning of our indoor and outdoor facilities is done.
In addition to regular cleaning, new sanitation procedures have been added to increase the cleanliness of frequently touched areas such as lockers, door handles, tablets and handrails.
Water is purified with chlorine, a disinfectant known to kill viruses and bacteria. Water quality control tests are performed twice as often as required by health authorities to ensure that the water is optimal and that its parameters are properly balanced. In addition, an independent company conducts water tests every two weeks.
What enhanced hygiene protocols are in place?
- Hand sanitizing stations have been added in the most strategic places throughout the site.
- Before going to the baths or to their massages, our guests must take a cleansing shower with soap. Showering is also mandatory after a massage, prior to entering the baths.

- All magazines and other frequently handled objects, such as pillows and blankets, have been removed from the baths site.
- The indoor facilities have been reorganized to minimize traffic by respecting the two-metre distance between guests.
- Two large towels are provided to each guest to allow guests to sit on a towel when using facilities such as relaxation areas or saunas. This procedure will be closely monitored by staff once baths will reopen, to ensure that each guest always has a towel on-site.
