Brisbane is home to a bunch of amazing spots that will melt away the stress and have you getting your Zen on in no time.  

Not sure where to start? We’ve got your back with our round-up of the very best spas in Brisbane.

Evergreen Spa Bathhouse And Massage 

Woolloongabba

In need of a day of detoxing but not flush with coin right now? Evergreen Spa Bathhouse is Woolloongabba's new underground spa spot—and a visit will only set you back $25. There's no timed sessions here either, you can stay as long as you can handle sweating it out in the sauna, soaking in the hot spa and cooling off in the magnesium pool, with refreshing vitamin C showers to duck under when you're ready to leave, feeling as relaxed as you've ever been. This ones ladies only though, sorry boys, though you can keep an eye out for their couple's spa nights on Instagram.

Away Spa At W Brisbane 

Brisbane City

Away Spa inside W Brisbane is more than just a little bit luxe. It’s definitely a treat yourself kind of spot, but with facials, body scrubs and massages on the menu, why wouldn’t you? Pre or post-treatment you can make the most of the spa’s vitality pools, relaxation pods, rain showers, saunas and aromatherapy steam rooms (you will need to check for availability and reserve a time slot in advance).

Aquarius Health And Medispa

Brisbane City

Cosmetic and non-cosmetic beauty treatments, facials, massage, tanning, laser hair removal… you name it, this Brisbane day spa does it. Not just a spa, Aquarius is also a health club, with a fully equipped gym offering personal training services, 40-degree magnesium pool, sauna, and steam room, perfect for weary out-of-towners in need of a pick-me-up.

Cenote Casa

For anyone who just wants to soak in a steam room for a while, take a dip in a magnesium pool and finish off in a gloriously warm spa, glass of bubbles in hand, hidden oasis Cenote Casa is for you. There might not be massages involved, but you can get a pink clay mask to slather on while you soak, and even add on a couple of locally made chocolates to really spoil yourself. You will definitely leave feeling 110% better than when you arrived. 

Soak Bathouse 

West End 

This stunning rooftop bathhouse features no fewer than seven spas, an indoor/outdoor warm mineral pool, sauna, steam room and cold plunge pool, making it just the place to wind down and engage in a little self-care, either for a one-off session or on the daily with one of their membership packages. You can also book massages, LED facials and time in the private infrared sauna if you need to level things up. 

KAILO Wellness Medispa

Fortitude Valley

Located in James Street's iconic The Calile Hotel, you just know this one's going to be bougie. Pay KAILO a visit for skin and beauty treatments, massages, and spa and body treatments to reap the benefits of traditional wellness philosophies combined with the latest in world-class techniques and treatments in the organic space featuring reclaimed timber, stone and flowing water (all just a stone's throw from Hellenika).

Skin Spirit Day Spa

Tarragindi

Skin Spirit Day Spa is all about skincare (while nourishing your spirit, hence the name, der) Skin Spirit offers skin treatments, masks, massages, facials, waxing, and you can get your brows and eyelashes done while you’re there. It’s called multitasking, people.

Stephanie’s Spa Retreat

Brisbane City, Bulimba And Cleveland

With three locations in Brisbane and several others in SEQ, Stephanie’s is an award winning day spa offering so much more than just massages, facials and pedicures. The CBD location even has a steam temple (yes, temple) because you’re a goddess, goddamit, while the Cleveland location features something called a rain therapy cocooning waterfall—we don't know what it is but we want in. With men’s spa treatments also available, you can even bring the boyfie.

Sakura Day Spa

Teneriffe

With a focus on helping you chill the heck out, Sakura Day Spa is a tranquil escape from everyday life, offering facials, massage, vichy showers, body scrubs and wraps (our pick is the seaweed wrap), manis and pedis, waxing, and a range of relaxing spa packages. 

Petrichor Day Spa 

Hawthorne 

Literally hidden inside a gorgeous old Queenslander, this under-the-radar Brisbane day spa is all of your pampering fantasies, realised. The stunning décor and chilled vibes makes Petrichor the ideal spot to treat yourself, and their infamous Vichy Shower treatment is the way to do it.

Healing Stone

South Brisbane

Get your self-care on at Healing Stone located in the Emporium Hotel. With Japanese-style ganbanyoku, massages, facial acupoint and reflexology., this is one of the best day spas in Brisbane for an indulgent day out. If there's availability, you can also request to hit the Emporium Hotel rooftop pool for a dip after your treatment. 

Or you could try floating—find the best places to do that here.
