Spa Treatments in Sydney
Sydney dazzles with its show-off harbour, gorgeous beaches and sunny blue skies. After exploring the Harbour City from sunup to sundown, slip on a kimono, put your feet up and get your glow on at these luxury spas and retreats.
Five-star hotel spas
You’ll find indulgent havens of pampering in many of Sydney’s luxury hotels. The Langham is home to the serene Day Spa by Chuan and its beautiful Romanesque style heated pool with twinkling ceiling lights for languid post treatment dips. Nearby in Pyrmont is the lauded The Darling Spa, one of the city’s largest and most luxurious with 11 treatment rooms, a steam room, Moroccan Hammam and two opulent couples suites.
Fancy jaw dropping views with your pampering session? Endota Spa in the Four Seasons Hotel offers four treatment rooms, swish lounge areas and arguably one of Sydney’s best vistas. Think high performance facials, detox massaging and decadent packages for the ultimate pampering session.
CHI The Spa at the Shangri-La Hotel offers wellness treatments inspired by Asian cultures using Australian brand Sodashi. Book in for the three-hour ‘Journey Down Under’ experience for wattle seed scrub, pink clay body wrap, aromatherapy massage and deep cleansing facial. It’s the elixir for modern day stress.
After a treatment at The Spa at the Park Hyatt, you can relax with a herbal tea (or glass of champagne) and soak up the jaw dropping harbour vistas across to the Sydney Opera House. This luxurious spa uses Australian skincare brands Ikou, and Kersten Florian and offers aromatherapy steam rooms where you can kiss tension goodbye.
Gentlemanly virtues of chivalry and conversation meanwhile go hand in hand with the exemplary grooming menu at the spaQ Barber Shop inside the QT Sydney hotel. Men can treat themselves with a traditional wet shave in an antique leather barber chair while regular spa goers can opt for treatments with a therapeutic punch at SpaQ.
Standalone day spas
Experience a traditional Korean bath house, submit your weary body for an authentic Thai massage and channel Palm Springs vibe at these standalone day spas across Sydney.
California meets sunny Sydney at the Sol Spa at Botanica Vaucluse, an Instagrammers paradise surrounded by verdant gardens where champagne and cocktails are on the pre and post treatment menu. Nearby in Double Bay, Karpati Skin Clinic has ensured Sydney locals are looking their optimum best for three decades. The full gambit of calming body treatments, spa massages and reshaping therapies are on offer including environmentally-friendly signature services.
Feel invigorated, exfoliated and reborn at Arisoo Day Spa, styled on a traditional Korean bathhouse or treat yourself to an authentic Thai massage and Elemis treatments in luxe surrounds at Varda Spa in the heart of Sydney’s CBD and Bondi. Alternatively escape gravity’s pesky downward pull with zero-gravity pods, anti-gravity massage beds and chairs at Sydney Float Centre’s two outlets.
Bushland yoga retreat
Overlooking a billabong and mist filled escarpment, the 30-room certified eco Billabong Retreat offers daily yoga and meditation classes, nutritious organic vegetarian fare cooked by a resident chef, massages and treetop cabins. For the ultimate escape, book a treetop room with freestanding tub on the balcony where you can soak your cares away beneath soaring eucalypt trees serenaded by bird song.
