Relax, unwind, and rejuvenate with an escape to one of the best Sunshine Coast day spas.

From hinterland hills to the coastal strip, specialised therapists work their magic, turning sore stressed bodies and minds into temples of Zen.

For the already blissed out peeps, skip the stress busters and indulge in some serious beautifying treatments. We’ve been kneaded, tugged, scrubbed, and polished to bring you this hand-picked selection of the six best Sunshine Coast day spas.

Spa Anise


Hinterland heaven does exist at Spa Anise at Spicers Tamarind Retreat in Maleny. For a serious dose of luxury, map this stop on your Sunshine Coast day spa itinerary. We’re big fans of their pattern of practise, starting with a foot soak, followed by a bob in the hydro pool, and then a full-body massage complete with a personalised playlist. This will possibly ruin every future spa experience for you, because it really is that good.



Ikatan is the true definition of a luxury destination spa. And we’re not the only ones who think so. Voted Best Destination Spa in Australia four times, stepping into this Indonesian-inspired tropical oasis leads to an immediate sense of relaxation. And that’s even before the Ikatan treatments kick off.

Stephanie's Ocean Spa

Noosa Heads

Move over diamonds, spas are a girl’s best friend. Especially, when they’re nestled a short stroll from Hastings Street and accommodate group treatments like Stephanies. With a menu that’s dripping with decadence, it’ll be difficult to decide where to start, so we recommend the Petite Spa Taster for a two-hour introduction to the best of all worlds.

The Spa At Noosa Springs 


We don’t know what we love more: the filtered HydroMassage Pool, the flotation pool with its impressive starlit ceiling or the infrared sauna that helps speed up the detoxification process. Visit The Spa at Noosa Springs and you’ll understand why, like choosing between your children, we can’t pick favourites.

AQUA Day Spa


Located at the Sofitel Noosa Pacific Resort, get ready to enter a world of sublime relaxation when you step inside AQUA Day Spa. From aqua therapy pools to steam rooms and a plethora of treatment options (including an Ultimate Indulgence package that takes four hours—four hours of relaxation!), you’ll find yourself hitting that “book now” button again and again.

Waterfall Day Spa


Just metres away from the Mooloolaba beachfront, you’ll find The Waterfall Day Spa. Located in the beautiful Landmark Resort, this relaxation haven has so many treatment options, it’ll make your head spin. From couples massages to facials, and more luxurious treatments, there’s truly something for everyone—they even do wedding and group packages if you’re looking for the ultimate gal’s night out.
