Spa Team

Carly Kuntz

CRO (Chief Relaxation Officer)

Carly Kuntz is the Owner and Chief Relaxation Officer of The Waters – An Urban Spa Retreat. Carly's vision for the spa began nearly two decades ago when she realized there was an opportunity to enhance the level of service in the day spa industry and was determined to bring a high end resort-style experience to the day spa setting. Since The Waters opened in 2007, Carly has been thrilled to receive positive feedback from spa guests who say that The Waters is their favourite spa.

“We owe our success to an amazing team of professionals who have a shared mission to delight and nurture each and every guest.”

Carly provides support to Spa Directors, Allison Walker and Carly Martin, who expertly manage the spa from day-to-day and look into new ways to enhance spa visits. She now has time to focus her attention on entrepreneurial endeavors such as teaching Entrepreneurship at the University of Waterloo, and turning her creative energies to her marketing design and home design businesses. Carly is a firm believer in supporting others in entrepreneurship and creating possibilities for others to reach their highest potential. She is a dedicated employer, wife, mother, volunteer and proud member of the Waterloo region business community.
