Omni Hotels and Resorts expands footprint into Canada with first Mokara Spa
By Megan Whitby 12 Mar 2020
Omni has 60 properties across the US, with Mokara operating spas and salons across the country, along with the Mokara Hotel and Spa in San Antonio
Omni Hotels and Resorts will open its first Omni spa in Canada under the Mokara brand, in Spring 2020.

Omni has 60 properties across the US, with Mokara operating spas and salons across the country, along with the Mokara Hotel and Spa in San Antonio.

“The 6,000sq ft Mokara Spa is the very first Omni spa in Canada,” said spa director Julia Chang. “It’s located in the historic yet iconic Omni King Edward Hotel, which was built in 1903 by the George Gooderham’s Toronto Hotel Company. Omni Hotels and Resorts took ownership in 2015.”

Following an investment of CA$3.8m (€2.3m, US$2.6m, £2m), the spa will feature seven treatment rooms, including two for couples, a steamroom and sauna.

The spa menu will offer personalised massages, facials, body scrubs and wraps, along with hair and nail services. Treatments will be supplied by Eminence Organics, while Knesko will be used to supply selected facials.

In addition, guests will be able to visit a retail boutique selling Eminence Organics, Spa Ritual, Aromatherapy Associates, Knesko, French Girl, Cela, Slip, Bkind and Julie Vos.

From conceptual design to completion of spa renovations, the process took 11 months and is the result of a collaborative effort between Omni Hotels and Resorts corporate team of project managers and local design group Moncur Design.
