Yorkville’s best bolthole

Amidst the hustle and bustle of ‘the city that never stops building” the reno’d Spa at the Four Seasons Yorkville is one of our favourites for a restful mid-week escape. Chill by the pool or in the outdoor lounge, or hide away for a treatment or two.  

Our latest crush: Rosedale Reflexology. Inspired by the steep ravine walks in one of Toronto’s most historic neighborhoods, this treatment relaxes, hydrates and realigns. Or, if you’re so inclined, create your own package of no need to feel guilty pleasures, a combo of three or more spa treatments facials, massages and body treatments complete with a lovely glass of bubbly.

Mystical wonders

Imagine sacred waters and a sanctuary protected by pure energy where your tribe dances and plays as they look for the spiritual medicine that will leave you bright,
focused and connected. Azulik has 48 wooded crafted villas and avant-garde cuisine and sits on stilts 38 feet above two Tulum’s Mayan jungle. A hidden place to abandon worries, meet native shamans and feel the stateliness of the sun.

The buzz about broth

Broths are indeed nourishing. Buy them fresh or frozen at the health food store, or make your own if you’re up for simmering beef bones and veggies for a few hours. Strain and you’ve got a healthy meal to fill you up and support cell turn-over and gastrointestinal tract repair.
