SKYSPA is the picture of an urban oasis dropped right in the neighborhood of Sainte-Foy near the busy center of Quebec City. Run with the Nordic traditions in mind, guests follow a circuit of hot services followed by a few seconds of cold services before spending a period in rest.
Then, the cycle is repeated for incredible relaxation and relief from aches and pains. This place is a wonderful, convenient stop whether you’re a local on the go or a tourist in town for a few days to explore and relax.
SKYSPA recommends starting each cycle with 15-20 minutes in one of the hot areas listed below to dilate pores and blood vessels, releasing toxins:
- Finnish saunas
- Eucalyptus steam bath
- Outdoor warm pool
The last on this list is a traditional German ritual when the sauna master pours essential oil-infused water onto the heat source, increasing the humidity before circulating the hot air with dance-like towel movements.
One such experience offered is The Glow, a blacklight aufguss complete with beats and glowing paint. Citrus essential oils are as energizing as the primal atmosphere. Shots of cold juice and ice jolt the body to full consciousness to finish it off.
The Signature Sky offers a tamer, more traditional option for those new to the aufguss or those who prefer it.
Many of the saunas and whirlpools have stunning city views, including multiple rooftop pools. After all, SKYSPA is located on the 17th floor.
Follow a relaxing hot treatment with at least 15 seconds of one of the following cold spaces to invigorate the body and boost blood circulation and adrenaline.
- Cold waterfall pool
- Plunge pools
- Outdoor cold pools
Rehydrate and relax in one of the many comfortable rest areas, bringing your heart rate back to normal and preparing yourself to start the cycle again. Stretch out in a chaise lounge in the sun on the roof or nap on a small bed with a pillow in a resting room. There are many places to discover, both indoors and outdoors, for getting some shut-eye in the complex.
If you like massages, you’ll be thrilled with your options at SKYSPA. Massage therapists on staff are skilled in many techniques and offer the following types of treatments:
- Lymphatic drainage
- Hot stone
- Lomi lomi
- Sky Signature
- Deep tissue
The on-site bistro is the perfect place to recharge between hot-cold circuits. You can enjoy a wide range of salads, sandwiches, and snacks. All food is healthy and homemade for guests’ enjoyment. A plethora of drinks are also available and include coffee, tea, wine, beer, cocktails, and various other non-alcoholic options.
