The Ritz-Carlton Montreal in collaboration with Spa St. James has opened the landmark property’s first in-house spa.
Spa St. James at Ritz-Carlton Montreal is 5,500 square feet and includes 12 treatment rooms, a manicure-pedicure suite, and a full service hair salon. The spa’s menu is influenced by its setting, with Quebeçois-themed treatments featuring local specialities such as maple-based products.
“There is a common thread between Ritz-Carlton Montreal and the Spa St. James that goes beyond a commitment to excellence and a dedication to service—both are well-respected institutions and have deep family values,” said the hotel’s general manager and CEO, Andrew Torriani.
The spa is the latest chapter in the Ritz-Carlton Montreal history. In Autumn 2014, it introduced Canada’s first Dom Pérignon Champagne Bar in its Palm Court. It also had a four-year closure during which an extensive multi-million dollar renovation was completed. It reopened in 2012. The only CAA/AAA Five-Diamond property in Quebec, it received a Top City Hotel in Canada honor in the 2015 Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards.
About Spa St. James
Spa St. James has been serving the Montreal community for 26 years. Helmed by Carol St. James and her son, Jordan, it was previously located on Crescent Street.
“The Spa St. James on Crescent Street opened February 23, 2001, so it’s poetic that 15 years later we open our doors at the Ritz-Carlton Montreal on the same day,” said spa director Jordan St. James. “We are so pleased to move Montreal’s most coveted spa into the city’s most iconic hotel, providing our longstanding clientele with greater options, and a more elegant spa experience. The new spa will set the standard for luxury in Montreal’s spa industry.”
The spa is open to hotel guests and day visitors. It offers a diverse range of luxury spa products, including Cellcosmet Switzerland, Nelly Devuyst and Kevin Murphy.
Signature treatments created specially for the Ritz-Carlton Montreal are:
- The St. James Signature Facelift
- The Ritz-Carlton Montreal Maple Sugar Experience
- The Ritz-Carlton Montreal Maple Sugar Massage, a two-hour treatment incorporating hand-crafted maple products from Magog, Quebec
