With the silly season andall the stress it brings just around the corner, 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.
Away Spa At W Brisbane
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.
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 you will definitely leave feeling 110% better than when you arrived.
Aquarius Health And Medispa
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.
Sakura Day Spa
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.
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.
Petrichor Day Spa
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.
Skin Spirit Day Spa
Skin Spirit Day Spa is all about skin care (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.
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.
