"We are thrilled to invite you and a guest to our exclusive media event for the launch of  
Tay River Aqua!"
Well I'm pretty darn thrilled to be invited! 
So off my friend Elaine and I went for a much overdue and needed Spa Day.
(We each have 2 teen boys. Need I say more? I think not!)

You'll find the Tay River Reflections AQUA & MediSpa nestled on 260 acres just outside the town of Perth (about a 45 minute drive west of Ottawa), making it perfect for a day trip, or combined with a stay at one of the boutique hotels in the area a perfect weekend getaway.

We spent the day enjoying all Tay River has to offer including the newly opened outdoor AQUA facility, the gym and fitness centre, and a mini spa treatment at the established Tay River Reflections Spa. After a quick tour and lunch served in the lounge overlooking the hot tubs, gazebos and beautiful grounds, I was off to the spa to see Rhiannon for a mini facial which I highly recommend. Elaine relaxed in the hot tub until it was time for her mini relaxation massage. The Tay River MediSpa offers an array of spa services and medical esthetic treatments, including what I refer to as the "Spa-ce Pod" which is actually for Oxy LED treatments. 

The Train N' Transform Gym and fitness centre is impressive and includes an indoor track, and total body vibration machines! It was nice to see a wide range of ages from college students to seniors in the gym and classes. Clearly there is something to suit everyone's needs. Personal trainers are available by appointment, as well as 140 classes per month to suit every fitness level. I found the Membership prices very reasonable, and think it would be great for those with cottages in the area. 

We spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying coffee and tea in the lounge, and chatting with Tay River Reflections founder Dr. Manuela Joannou and the Marketing Director Tyrell McKirdy about their facilities and future plans to convert the loft into a conference room. 

It was a wonderful relaxing way to spent time with a good friend. The staff was friendly and professional, the spa treatments a dream, and the surroundings beautiful. They even have wifi, which is important to us blogger types. I know I'll be back soon! because as the saying goes ..."I'm Worth It!"

Mother's Day is just around the corner and a spa day sounds like the perfect gift...hint hint teen boys!

For more information about the services and packages available be sure to take a look at the Tay River Reflections Medical Spa site and Tay River Reflections on facebook.

Yep, just me Cathy thinking out loud about spa days.

Note: As an invited guest of  Tay River Reflections AQUA I enjoyed the facilities for a day and a mini spa treatment free of charge. The purpose of this post is merely to share my experience with my readers. All opinions are my own and reflect my personal experience.


  1. Oooohh Cathy this spa looks gorgeous!!!!! It is so important as Moms (especially moms to boys!) to take time out for ourselves and relax - even better when we can do it with a friend!

  2. I am 28 years over due for some royal treatment like that. Can't wait to find the time to go considering it's not too far from my house. So happy that you got the pampering that you deserve.

    Besos Sarah.

  3. Looks like a wonderful place. Hope you get to go back and enjoy again.
