Is this your first time in the scenic Outaouais region? Good timing! This summer, the Outaouais region is going into celebration mode, hosting, among others, the KOOZA show by the legendary Cirque du Soleil. We have prepared a short itinerary for you for a few days in our region.

A smooth arrival at the Château Cartier Hôtel & Resort

Start your trip by checking into a spacious room or suite at the Château Cartier Hôtel & Resort. Enjoy a plush bed, a work desk, a 42-inch TV and access to complimentary high-speed WiFi. Then head to the Kōena Spa to rejuvenate.

A restful day at Kōena Spa

Discover the benefits of the thermal experience. Start with one of the three hot baths offered: Ho’olua, Nahua or Pohina, or the Pohala steam bath, for approximately 15 minutes. Then dive quickly into the refreshing water of the cold Kêhau bath. Relax in our giant hammocks or lounge chairs in the Ho’o room with a good book. Repeat the experience at least 2 to 3 times.

Continue your day in our Mahana and Wela dry saunas or our A.pona and Pa’akai rooms for the complete experience. To further pamper yourself, make an appointment with one of our massage therapists or estheticians for an invigorating treatment. 

Did you know that we also have 3 restaurants on the premises? Kōena Bistro offers a variety of salads and charcuterie platters, while Resto Lounge Ono features delectable tartare and burgers. Are you a sushi lover? KaTO stands out in the area with its gourmet cuisine and Japanese-Korean fusion.

Combining the renowned acrobatics of the Cirque with clownesque humour, KOOZA will amaze you from start to finish. We are sure you will be enchanted by this playful tribute to the circus of yesteryear.
