De-stressing might not normally be on your list of things to do when you’re hanging out in the already laidback island paradise that is Rottnest but walk into the newly opened Karma Spa and get ready to hit maximum relaxation level.
Settling into its beautiful colonial-era island cottage home next to buzzy Italian pizza joint Frankies, Karma is a stunning sanctuary of calm that we predict is going to make itself right at home over summer.
Bringing to life the Karma vision of a beautiful but laid-back day spa, the space oozes tranquil and luxe island vibes and promises guests a special type of oasis just steps from Rotto’s shopping strip.
Personalised experiences are the name of the game here with a selection of essential oils tailored around the five spa themes (relax, de-stress, activate, meditate and mood-booster) available for a bespoke massage. The global debut of Karma’s apothecary massage bar sits alongside a menu of treatments including facials and massages as well as some more specialised packages. The sleep ceremony ritual, which involves a magnesium-rich warm salt scrub, a warm herbal compress, a Himalayan Salt Stone back, neck and shoulder massage, a magnesium neck application, a soothing face and scalp acupressure treatment and a sleep tea ceremony could just find its way on to a few Christmas lists this year.
Beyond traditional spa experiences, the spa will also be offering sauna sessions accompanied by classical music, yoga classes, perfume-making and candle-making workshops as well as wellness workshops and seminars.
A very welcome addition to Rotto, Karma Spa could just become your new home away from home.
