If you’ve ever treated yourself to a long wine-fuelled lunch, or perhaps splashed out on a fanciful weekend getaway, you can attest that Cabarita’s dreamy Halcyon House is the kinda place you wish you could shut off from reality and hide away forever.
Not only is every inch of this intimate beachside property worthy of a magazine cover, plunging into its laidback coastal vibes, top-notch hospitality and flawless culinary offerings is like discovering hidden treasure at the end of the proverbial rainbow.
But did you know much-lauded Halcyon House recently opened the doors to the most breathtaking, designer day spa ever to come within loofa throwing distance of the Gold Coast? It’s true! And there’s no hiding the fact we’re head over heels in LOVE.
And you will be too from the moment you walk through the doors, slip on a plush robe, sip herbal tea and check into your luxurious face, body or massage spa session. This place is dreams, we tell you. Dreams!
We all know the foundation of relaxation is to detach and disconnect, but you’ll be momentarily forgiven if you wanna Instagram the heck out of this beautiful space before tapping out for your 100% organic treatment.
Ensuring a seamless addition to this iconic northern NSW lodging, the spa has been crafted by architect Virginia Kerraige and interior designer Anna Spiro, the same creative hands behind the adjoining boutique hotel and Paper Daisy restaurant. Spread across two levels, Halcyon Spa is wrapped in crisp white stucco walls, with those signature breezeblocks and archways hiding relaxation areas and calming courtyards.
Inside, you’ll find accents of Moroccan mosaics, honey timber floors, upholstered wallpaper and bespoke mismatched textiles and furnishings that somehow marrying together effortlessly. There’s also a Hammam-inspired domed steam room, where you can bliss out pre or post-treatment to maximise the rejuvenation experience. Did we mention all treatments also incorporate products from natural Aussie skincare range, Sodashi, and Halcyon’s own custom aromatherapy oils? #bliss
We’re big fans of the gentle all-over exfoliating Soothing Jojoba Polish and are already making plans to splurge on one of Halycon’s curated Spa Journeys on our next visit. Take for instance the indulgent three-hour Vitality package featuring back-to-back treatments including a thermal infusing facial, body balance salt glow and back massage. Sounds like heaven, right?
For a serious dose of sophisticated yet unstated luxury, mark this Cabarita day spa on your spoil-yourself bucket list. Though be warned; this will possibly ruin every future spa experience for you, because it really is that special!
