Four Seasons Montreal boasts spa with city’s first Kneipp facility

The Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Montreal has opened, with a spa described as a “wellness sanctuary”.

Featuring the city’s only Kneipp hydrotherapy facility, the spa focuses on results-oriented therapies as well as pampering. The Kneipp therapy pool, which uses the health-promoting qualities of hot and cold water, is reached by a reflexology footpath and features a large waterfall as part of the methods originally developed by Bavarian naturopath Sebastian Kneipp in the 19th century.

There are eight treatment rooms at the spa, including the Golden Square VIP Suite for two with its own discreet entrance, all featuring Gharieni’s MO1 Evo treatment beds.

Additional spa and wellness facilities include a sauna, whirlpool and relaxation areas; a state-of-the-art gym designed by celebrity fitness expert Harley Pasternak; and a skylit indoor pool with an upstream current generator.

Led by spa director Geneviève Poulos, the spa features treatments from Hungarian skincare line Omorovicza, including the signature Gold Hydra Lifting Facial. London-based 111SKIN, created by cosmetic surgeon Dr Yannis Alexandrides, is also featured, as well as Peoni by Jb Skin Guru, a line created by Montreal skincare expert Jennifer Brodeur.

The 169-bedroom Four Seasons, swathed in black with metallic ribbons, was designed by Lemay and Sid Lee Architecture. Hotel interiors including guest rooms, spa, Palais des Possibles ballroom and public areas are designed by Paris-based firm Gilles & Boissier in collaboration with Montreal-based architect and designer Philip Hazan.

Interiors are enhanced by a curated collection of works by local and international artists, including Pascale Girardin’s floral-inspired installation, which cascades down the building’s open-air atrium and showcasing nature in the heart of the architecture.

The focal point of Four Seasons Hotel Montreal is its Social Square, a sprawling space on the third floor that encompasses the Hotel’s lobby and signature dining and drinking experience, MARCUS by Chef Marcus Samuelsson.

The Social Square is a series of spaces that includes a restaurant, terrace, day bar, night bar and lounge, each with its unique design, musical selection and atmosphere, designed by Montreal renowned Atelier Zébulon Perron to inspire connections.

“The joie de vivre of Montreal is unlike any city in North America. We’ve captured this incredible spirit and infused it into every aspect of this stunning new property,” said Christian Clerc, president, worldwide hotel operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “Everything has been designed to set the stage for connecting people, community and culture; and to showcase the very best of Four Seasons through world-class design, culinary experiences and personalised service.”
