While this one isn't technicallyyyy a day spa, it's all about relaxation and recovery so we think it deserves a spot on this list. TH7 BodyLabs is a bold new elite recovery, wellness and longevity facility in Noosa Junction, specialising in science-based protocols that are designed to make you ‘feel better, recover faster and live longer’. The new state-of-the-art clinic opened in December 2023, showcasing the latest wellness equipment and cutting-edge therapies.

At TH7 BodyLabs Noosa you’ll find an infrared sauna, traditional sauna, stream room, compression boots, hot pool, cold plunge pools, ice baths and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. So, yes it’s pretty slick.

Ikatan Day Spa

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 and voted as a 'Best of Queensland Experience', stepping into this Indonesian-inspired tropical oasis leads to an immediate sense of relaxation. And that’s even before the Ikatan treatments kick off.

We love that Ikatan isn't just about a spa treatment; you're encouraged to relax in the tranquil gardens before or after your session, where you can listen to the songbirds or watch the native water dragon lizards. There are huge range of spa treatments personalised to your  individual wellness needs. 

Stephanie's Ocean Spa

33 Viewland Dr, Noosa Heads QLD 4567

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 Stephanie's. 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 contemporary design of Stephanie's Ocean Spa offers eleven wellness treatment rooms, including couple suites and a signature triple suite, both encompassing stunning views into the Noosa Biosphere Reserve.

Tank Riveria

The Sunshine Coast's most innovative spa, Tank Riveria describes itself as, ‘a day club, waterfront restaurant, bar, river cruise, bathhouse and day spa all wrapped into one’. Since Tank Bathhouse opened in Bli Bli in late 2021, it has become one of the Sunshine Coast’s most sought-after day spas and the recent expansion to Mooloolaba looks to be even more popular.

The ultra-luxe day spa seamlessly blends into a sophisticated waterfront dining and bar space, perfect for sunset drinks and catchups with friends. You can keep the bathhouse experience simple(ish) and move between Tank Riveria’s six magnesium baths, wet steam rooms and sauna, or go all out and indulge in a gourmet lunch, signature massage, facial and a one-hour vintage river cruise with complimentary Chandon.

When we say Noosa Springs Day Spa is one of the most beautiful spas we've visited, we are not exaggerating. With an interior inspired by ancient Roman baths, we don’t know what we love more: the filtered hydro-massage pool, the flotation pool with its impressive starlit ceiling, the outdoor couple's spa or the infrared sauna that helps speed up the detoxification process.
