With Mother’s Day just around the corner *frantically Googles ‘When Is Mother’s Day’* and your birthday surely falling sometime in the next calendar year, we say it’s high time for a spa day. Whether you’re looking for an indulgent gift or taking some time out to treat yo’ self, these are Brisbane’s best day spas.
Stephanie’s Spa Retreat
Located in the Sofitel, Stephanie’s is an award winning Brisbane day spa (2017 World Luxury Spa Award Winner, to be exact, NBD), offering beauty, massage, facials, waxing, and pedicures. They even have a steam temple (yes, temple) because you’re a goddess, goddamit. With men’s spa treatments also available, you can even bring the boyfie.
If you’re looking for a completely luxurious spa experience in Brisbane you can’t go past the picturesque One Wybellena, set one two stunning acres in leafy Brookfield. Golden sea algae body wraps, crystal treatments, black pearl facials and other next level luxe treatments sit alongside more standard spa favourites like facials, massages, and tanning. Heaven is a place on earth.
