The Kōena Escape: An excursion out of time

“Happiness is a delicate balance between what we are and what we have…”


In embarking on the wonderful journey of Kōena Spa, our team wanted to create an urban village, a unifying environment that would complement the other amenities already present in this location. We wanted to find the right balance, the perfect combination of services and amenities to make everything work in harmony. In fact, that’s what Kōena means in Hawaiian: “balance”.

The Kōena Spa is located along the Ottawa River, in the heart of the Château Cartier Hôtel & Resort. Thanks to its judicious location, you will be able to enhance your moment of Kōena Escape with a game at Golf Château Cartier. We even offer dinner shows on Fridays and Saturdays!

Relaxing bathing rituals are timeless and transcend borders.

What is the Kōena Escape? It’s a subtle blend of modernity and a thousand-year-old tradition entirely dedicated to your well-being. It is located in an urban village only 5 minutes from downtown Gatineau and Ottawa.

HO’OKIPA: Hospitality the Hawaiian way

At Kōena Spa, we invite you to live an extraordinary Nordic spa experience. Nordic by its baths, but Hawaiian by its atmosphere and hospitality. We will welcome you as our guests, paying special attention to the details of your moment of escape.

Come and enjoy a multi-sensory getaway inspired by the four elements and the Eastern and Western bathing traditions.

Whether for the day or just a few hours, we offer you advantageous rates that adapt to the time you wish to devote to your well-being. No need to monopolize your day to live precious moments alone or with friends.

Mahalo ā nui!
