The soothing scents of ginseng and orange waft through the air and you feel the gentle but lifting pull of the marine collagen and vitamin C in your Liftosome Firming Facial. Now it’s time to join the kids on the sandy beach shore of Lake Muskoka for some quality splash time.

Wait a minute – kids and splash time? Don’t bother double-checking the title. We know this isn’t a Top 10 Ontario Family Vacations, but our No. 1 Ontario Spa Vacation has such a wide variety of outdoor activity – along with the relaxation of a top-notch spa – that it’s a Canadian family vacation must! At Taboo Resort, you take a guided hike through the Parkland woodlands, past beaver ponds and up rock ridges while the kids swing from monkey bars and build sandcastles. Maybe your thoughtful someone will take the group on a mountain bike ride and let you slip away to Indulgence, the Spa at Taboo for that Cranberry Maple Body Polish. Whether you bring your tikes, your sweetie or just yourself, we’re certain that the gentle pressures of a holistic massage surrounded by the ethereal creamy white surroundings of Indulgence will help you to re-balance mind, body and spirit.
