With TIFF on the horizon, there’s no better way to prep than to get pampered like celebrity right in the heart of the action – Yorkville. I was more than a little bit excited when Valerie from Lucreative Media asked me & Christine Estima to come along on a girls’ spa night. Although I’d often passed by Vikaspa (it’s right across the street from Hazelton Lanes at 88 Avenue Rd.), I’d never ventured inside. After a little shopping (Val) and enabling (me), we headed to Vikaspa to meet up with Christine and get our treatments.
Vikaspa is definitely unique. House on three levels, the spa features luxe change rooms with lockers (and plush robes!), a co-ed steam room, a cozy waiting room stocked with fresh water and magazines and a beautiful outdoor patio. We’re told A-List celebrities like Natalie Portman have frequented the spa – awesome!
Christine was my mani/pedi buddy, both of us choosing reds: blood (her) & fire-enging (me). Although I try to fit in a pedicure at least every two months, my feet can get a little dry and gnarly. My aesthetician ensured I left with baby-smooth soles that I’ll try to maintain with my Sally Hansen foot moisturiser & aloe-infused socks from AirPlus (thanks, Ashworth PR!).
Val indulged in an hour-long massage and emerged looking well-rested and relaxed. Thanks to my bad back, I was unable to try it and remained extremely jealous. Vikaspa offers a variety of spa services and also has a beautiful display of luxury beauty goods.
A luxury manicure will run you $35 while a pedicure is $55 and a hour-long massage is $100. Luckily for you, if you want to try out Vikaspa’s amazing services Buytopia has a deal right now where you can get all three for only $49. If you check it out, let me know what you think!
