The manicure area at Quartz Crystal Spa.
Whiskey and cigars (being rolled, not smoked) are not amenities you¹d expect to find in a spa, but when Quartz Crystal Spa morphs into a venue – as it did for a recent VIP event at Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto – that’s a game changer.
Spa director Daphne Swenerton says meeting and event planners can book the 15,000-sq.-ft. space for three hours and up to a full day (8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.) for a private event of up to 30 people.
In this glamourous space, the theme can be strictly social – think marble and black leather with crystal accents – or more subdued and relaxed, with a full array of spa treatments, including salon services.
Looking at the spa as a venue, the two things that give Quartz Crystal an edge over many other spas in Toronto are layout and spaciousness.
The treatment rooms are well separated from the reception, salon and mani/pedi areas, allowing, says Swenerton, “for maximum networking mixed with various styles of relaxation.”
At the moment, Quartz Crystal is one of just two luxury spas in the city. The other is My Blend Spa, at the Ritz-Carlton Toronto.
