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 five best Sunshine Coast day spas.
Now this is what we call a 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!
Where: 46 Grays Road, Doonan

2. 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!
Where: 88 Obi Lane South, Maleny

3. Stephanies Ocean Spa
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.
Where: Peppers Resort and Villas, Little Hastings Street, Noosa Heads
Contact: 07 5473 5353
4. 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.
Where: Links Drive, Noosa Heads
Contact: 07 5440 3333
5. Casa Di Natura
With a name that means ‘House of Nature’ in Italian, it’s no surprise to find Casa Di Natura set among eight acres of lush rainforest and bushland in hill-top Flaxton. Offering luxury pampering packages without the hefty price tag, this Sunshine Coast hinterland retreat promises to only have on booking at a time. So whether it’s just you, or you’ve brought along a spa sidekick, chances are other than the therapists and the occasional kangaroo, you won’t see another soul. Just the way we like it!
Where: 144 Ensbey Road, Flaxton
