Spa Profile: Rosewater Spa of Oakville
Rosewater Spa of Oakville in Ontario, Canada has been around for two decades and was founded by Liz Belford, who wanted to create a total body, mind, and soul wellness experience for guests. Rosewater’s mission is to inspire a place of serenity dedicated to providing clients with the enjoyment of good health in restful surroundings through therapeutic massages, restorative body and skin treatments, and more.
Rosewater Spa has been named among Leading Spa’s Top 25 Spas in Canada, and continues to provide a tranquil oasis to those seeking peace and balance in their everyday lives. In 2013, Belford also opened Rosewater Boutique, which sells an array of world-class skin care, makeup, hair, and nail care products, making them available online to clients that are located around the world. We chatted with Belford, who recommended spa treatments to try, insider tips and bonuses, and more.
Why You’ll Love It: Over the past 20 years, our mantra has always been to consciously engage the five senses with each and every client the moment they walk in the door, allowing them to park their stresses at the front door. Consistency is part of our company culture and clients over the years have come to expect that during each and every visit to Rosewater. We are the only spa in Oakville that is still in business after almost 20 years. That is significant in today’s world for consumers to see the stability! Also, the five senses are totally engaged:
Scent: As soon as they walk in, they are immersed in the scent of a unique blend of aromatherapy oils.
Touch: Beginning with a welcoming, warm handshake from their knowledgable and friendly spa therapist to slipping into a soft robe.
Hear: The calm, tranquil soft music.
Taste: Enjoy a cup of our signature tea, which features a blend of rose hips, hibiscus, and tropical fruit (high in antioxidants!)
Sight: Soft lights, dimly lit with candles in an intimate atmosphere of quiet elegance.
Key Features: Vichy shower, Aroma Grotto steam room featuring a fibre optic ceiling, courtyard, VIP suite, beverage bar, spa boutique, relaxing retreat overlooking the courtyard, and we are located in beautiful Downtown Oakville just steps from Lake Ontario.
Bonus: All of our massages include a complimentary steam session to relax and warm your muscles prior to the massage. Heated herbal neck wraps are also enjoyed during our pedicure services.

Snacks Served: Our Rosewater Spa Tea is a vibrant pink tea that features a unique blend of rose hips, hibiscus, and tropical fruit—it’s very high in vitamin C and antioxidants. We also serve lemon water and cucumber water.
Insider’s Favorite: Right now, our clients are most excited about our newest facial, the HydraFacial, because it just takes three steps in 30 minutes to get the best skin of your life! We believe in no pain and all gain! HydraFacial is a non-invasive, three-step treatment that combines the benefits of advanced microdermabrasion, a mild chemical peel, and automated painless extractions with nourishing super serums to create an instantly gratifying glow. It offers immediate results without downtime or irritation.
Splurge Treatment: Our signature body treatment, The Rosewater Wrap and Nap, is the most luxurious of spa therapies. It begins with a total-body exfoliation, where a rich coating of European Rose Mud is applied to decongest and detoxify. Once you are cocooned in warmth, the experience continues with a relaxing mini-facial and scalp treatment. It’s the ultimate body treatment from head-to-toe!
Unique Treatment: Our most unique is our ‘Rendez-Vous For Two,’ a luxurious couples massage in our VIP Suite, which is a private area with two massage tables, a fireplace, and lounge area. It also has our Aroma Grotto, which is a private steam room with a fibre optic ceiling that looks like a night sky with twinkling stars. The treatment starts with 30 minutes in the Aroma Grotto, followed by hour-long, side-by-side massages. Afterwards, couples can relax in the private lounge with a glass of champagne and decadent rose water chocolates!
