Company Culture: 

We have taken the spa experience and transformed it into a wellness village. The spa village is familiar, feels like home, and allows its guests to escape the hectic pace of modern life. Our spa village is the first of its kind, with state-of-the-art installations and, at its core, buildings reminiscent of a distant past, when life was strongly connected with nature and steeped in traditions. Our spa village, a twist on traditional spa culture, combines unique experiences inspired by rituals found around the globe with a distinctively Canadian character—a peaceful hideaway for our guests not too far from home.

Our mission is to give our guests a moment’s rest by offering them refuge, away from the pressures of modern life where they may rediscover their own well-being and, as a result, live a happier and longer life. Your role as an artisan of our spa village is to cultivate peace. We are passionate and dedicated team players here at the spa village. Always enthusiastic, helpful, conscientious, discrete—and most of all, respectful. We deeply care about everyone—guests and fellow artisans alike—in our wellness village.
