Quartz Crystal Spa at Trump International Hotel and Tower Toronto. Photography by David Whittaker.The latest escape from Toronto’s bustling financial district takes you up—31 floors, to be exact, to the sleek Quartz Crystal Spa in the newly opened Trump International Hotel and Tower Toronto. We asked Inna Levitan, CEO and managing partner of the spa, to give us a run-down of the elegance and pampering of Trump-style proportions we can expect from this urban oasis. Your own Russian heritage inspired the concept of the Quartz Spa. How would you describe the spa's tone and atmosphere? “It is a serene and elegant space, which has a calming flow from the active zone (hair salon, mani, pedi, etc...) to the quiet zone in the treatment rooms. It is a complete urban escape, unlike any other.” Who’s the ideal client? What style of experience can they expect? “The clientele really ranges, however, our typical client is successful, powerful and busy, yet he/she craves and must have balance in their lives. He/she is a groomed, stylish individual who wants to feel and look their best. They want the crème de la crème in terms of products, service and ambiance— nothing short of that. Perfection is expected and products are results driven, just like they are.” Click through for more pics and Inna's recommended top treatments!

Any faves so far? “Oxygen Purifying and detoxifying facial: the perfect facial pre-event with immediate results (provides immediate rejuvenation results, purifies and brightens skin, improves circulation with 02 blast, balances hydration and leaves a fresh glow). Dry buff pedicure: the ultimate buffing pedicure, without cutting of the skin. Performed with special buffing filing tools to exfoliate, remove dead skin and resurface the soles of the feet. Frankincense & Myrrth Tension Balm: A product that we use during treatments as a relief from muscle pain, tension, headache or body aches. It is an herbal remedy that can be applied during treatment or purchased as a take-away treat. The spa also has it's own retail line of products that are sold at the spa, the Quartz Crystal Skin Care line.”

What kind can we expect? “We take great pride in personalizing each and every experience. We will therefore take note of all guest preferences and build a database that customizes every guest’s profile. A great spa experience becomes ideal when the staff makes it seamless for the guest. They will know that a particular guest prefers herbal-infused green tea or the pressure of a massage that particular guest prefers. Best takeaway from the Quartz Crystal Spa experience? “A complete sense of well-being.”
