Spring Brings Weddings at Temple Gardens Hotel & Spa

March 2019

With spring right around the corner, many brides are in high gear planning their 2019 wedding.

According to The Knot and confirmed by our wedding experts, some of the fresh trends you can expect to see throughout this wedding season include:

  • Themed weddings (think Game of Thrones or Star Wars) that incorporate whimsy and ditch the traditional monochromatic color theme for vibrant, rich colors like fuchsia, midnight blues, emeralds and bold burgundy!
  • The trending spirit … GIN! It is the quintessential liquor and makes the perfect mixer for mainstay classics!
  • Lighting enters the spotlight with upgrades with bespoke options like basket lanterns, neon installations and subtle coloured taper candles.
  • Did you know that smell is the sense most closely linked to memory? Brand your wedding with something that can’t be seen but rather smelled. Custom blends crafted for your wedding can be spritzed on invites or used in custom candles as wedding favours.
  • Whether boxed correspondence or a video message from the to-be-weds, invites set the stage for an epic event.
  • Location is everything. We offer a unique two-level ballroom, outstanding spa and dining experiences, welcoming accommodations (for out of town guests) and a gorgeous park-side setting as backdrop, along with customized packages. And best of all, our creative and caring wedding team take care of the details, ensuring your special day is everything you dreamed of.

Brides! Book your wedding before March 31 and we offer 2018 menu pricing for all 2019 and 2020 weddings! Contact us at 306-693-3522 ext. 6637 or email catering@templegardens.sk.ca.

Seniors doing aquatic exercise in the Temple Gardens Hotel & Spa pool

New Year and New You at Temple Gardens Hotel & Spa

January 2019


As with each new year, we start with resolutions, some attainable, some less likely to stick. What about a new resolution that is fun and fits with your fitness goals?

That’s where our aquatic exercise programs come in, including Therapeutic Aquatics, offered Monday thru Thursday (September through April) and Gentle Water Yoga, available year-round on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Times vary so please visit pool programs for times.

The benefits of our geothermal aquatic exercise programs include:

  • Less weight bearing on joints making it easier and less painful.
  • Water activities are a whole-body workout.
  • Our geothermal mineral pool is kept at a relaxing temperature.
  • Exercising in water improves ease of movement.
  • Stress is reduced while you’re having fun!

Located on what was once an ancient seabed, our geothermal pool provides therapeutic mineral water heated at a constant temperature of 45 degree Celsius (113 Fahrenheit). The chemistry of our geothermal mineral water is similar to the likes of Bath, England with compounds including Epsom and Glauber’s Salts. It is fair to say that our indoor/outdoor pool experience is one of our most popular amenities!

We can’t wait for you to experience one of our programs … after all the best workout is one that doesn’t seem like exercise at all!

Please note: Our pool programs are always complimentary to our hotel guests. For community members, classes are included with paid admission to the pool.
