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 think it’s high time you carved out some space to de-stress and rejuvenate. We did the hard yards and tested treatments all over town to come up with ten of the best day spas on the Sunshine Coast, so switch off your phone, shut out the world and get glowing again.

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.

Lillypilly's Cottages & Day Spa


Relax, reconnect and reinvigorate with magnificent country views, a calming,  tranquil setting, and an rejuvenating spa experience.  Overlooking magnificent Lake Baroon and the Conondale Ranges, Lillypilly's Cottages & Day Spa is the perfect place to calm your mind and recharge your batteries. Choose from an extensive selection of massage and natural therapies, facials and wraps or beauty treatments, and then retreat to your own private cottage and get your dinner delivered at this sweet country escape. Did we mention their cottages are pet-friendly too?



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 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.

Noosa Springs Day Spa


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.

Organica Day Spa

Peregian Beach

This boutique day spa is nestled in Peregian Beach and with after 33 years of operation, you can rest easy knowing in you're in extremely capable (and massage-worthy) hands. Organica Day Spa offers a blissful range of massages, spa treatments, beauty treatments, waxing and detox treatments. They provide some of the most advanced and organic facials around, with great active ingredients to cater for all skin problems, facials including microdermabrasion, skin needling, oxygen facials and enzyme peels.

Tank Bathhouse

Bli Bli 

This boutique bathhouse, nestled away on lush coastal farmland in Bli Bli on the Sunshine Coast, offers clients a welcome escape from the daily grind and promotes a holistic approach to wellness in body, mind and spirit. Inspired by the natural surrounds and seamlessly blending nature into the building’s design, this Tank Bathhouse breathes relaxation. Expect lavish Hamptons-style touches, natural textures and earthy tones which compliment the surrounding wilderness. Their rejuvenation experiences are all about restoring balance to your body and have been designed to take you on a curated journey of relaxation. 

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.

If you're looking for more ways to kick back and relax, why not keep the chill vibes flowing and hit up the Sunshine Coast's best bottomless brunches?
