Shake The Late-Winter Blues With 24-Hours Of Relaxation In Sarnia

February may be the shortest month of the year, but with the constantly changing Canadian winter and lack of sunshine, it tends to feel like the longest month. While spring is right around the corner, a quick getaway that includes some relaxation and rejuvenation is something we can all use to help get our energy back and get excited for the longer days, warmer weather and beautiful Sarnia-Lambton scenery.

No need to worry about where to start when planning your time away to relax and re-focus, we have planned a “pamper yourself” 24-hour getaway in Sarnia; filled with the perfect places and activities for you to recharge your batteries and shake those late-winter blues.

To start your 24-hour getaway in Sarnia, head to the vibrant downtown section of the booming waterfront community and order a freshly roasted cup of coffee, an espresso or a latte from Sarnia’s only micro-roasted coffee shop: Blackwater Coffee.


After you have your daily caffeine boost it is time to get moving. Experts say that exercise is one of the best ways to put oneself in a better mood.  Check out Inner Dawn Yoga or Northern Star Yoga and get yourself fit and refreshed with a session of yoga.


Following a good workout it is important to refuel your body with a satisfying and nutritious lunch. Head over to Greens Organic Café and fill up on delicious and healthy options such their tasty super-food smoothies or their vegan sandwiches, tacos and salads. Their selection of freshly prepared foods will help you get back the energy you need without the guilt of the usual fast food meal.


With an active morning behind you it is now time to unwind and get rejuvenated at one of the many local spas. Book a 30, 60 or 90-minute massage or hot stone therapy for yourself, both available at Adora Spa and Glass & Pillar Spa, or pamper yourself with a mani/pedi, facial, mud wrap, or body scrub. If you are feeling particularly blue this February, you can sign up for a complete spa package and get yourself rejuvenated from head-to-toe. You’ll feel like a new person and ready to conquer the world in no time.


A big meal of fine dining is a perfect way to end a relaxing and healthy day in Sarnia-Lambton. Maison St. Aubin is a perfect location to relax and enjoy some of Sarnia’s best cuisine. This elegant, intimate bistro offers traditional French cuisine touched with influences from Montreal’s finest dining establishments. ​


Finally, check in to a freshly renovated suite at the Insignia Hotel. Complete with the newest amenities, beautiful design and luxurious rooms, you can take a few minutes to yourself, knowing you have a perfect place to lay your head at the end of the day.
