Day For It: The Ultimate Australian Day Spa Guide
If 2020 was the year from hell, 2021 is the year of pampering. Grab your girlfriends, block out an afternoon and hit one of these luxurious day spas Australia has to offer.
The newest franchise of the iconic Byron Bay spa, COMMA Melbourne is the ultimate inner-city escape. With facials, massages, bathhouse experiences and sauna sessions on offer, the industrial-chic space is a very welcomed addition to Melbourne’s spa guide. Grab your bestie and book an afternoon of bliss, back rubs and perhaps a post-appointment bellini (or two).
PENINSULA HOT SPRINGS
Since an escape to the thermal baths of Iceland isn’t on the cards at the moment, we think the next best thing should be on your hit list. Peninsula Hot Springs, located just an hour and a half out of Melbourne’s CBD on the breathtaking Mornington Peninsula, is the ultimate tranquility destination. Whether you opt for the outdoor hot springs, the serene spa bathing or the moonlit bathing, one thing is for sure: you’ll never feel calmer… or cleaner, for that matter!
CROWN SPA SYDNEY
Sydney, New South Wales
There’s luxury and then there’s the new Crown Sydney Spa. Partnering with iconic swiss skincare brand, La Prairie, the oasis is unrivalled for delivering relaxation. Whether you opt for a facial, massage or an afternoon in the Aqua Retreat, you’re guaranteed to leave feeling refreshed and revitalised. Hot tip: book in to one of the Crown’s new restaurants for an after-treatment cocktail and hors d’oeuvre.
