    City sanctuary
    Located in the heart of the city, SpaQ at QT Sydney is an opulent city haven. Reset, unwind and relax with a list of therapeutic treatments which will reinvigorate mind, body and soul. Spoil yourself with the Metamorphosis package which includes a full day of pampering that will leave you feeling transformed, renewed and ready to take on the world.

    Rejuvenation is a given at The Day Spa by Chuan, a serene underground sanctuary available to guests and visitors at The Langham, Sydney hotel in the city centre. Just entering the Roman-style heated pool space is enough to calm a busy mind, with the highly qualified team taking care of body stress with holistic treatments featuring Babor skincare products. Go all out with the Champagne & Gold Indulgence, a 4.5-hour top-to-toe pampering experience that starts with a full-body massage, followed by a 90-minute facial, deluxe manicure and pedicure, light lunch and a glass of Champagne.

    The Darling Spa, at The Star Sydney in nearby Pyrmont, delivers on its promise to reconnect body, mind and soul. Along with beautiful treatment rooms, the spa includes a Moroccan hammam chamber, steam room and Jacuzzi. Alongside the more familiar offerings are treatments that use the Li’Tya skincare range of products that harness the power of native Australian plants and Aboriginal knowledge. Try the blissful Li’Tya Mirri facial, with lilly pilly, kelp and macadamia combining to boost your skin after a long flight or late night.

    Boutique beauties
    At Venustus, a ten-minute drive east of the city centre in leafy Paddington, owner Jeannie Bourke has been indulging locals and visitors for 30 years. She’s created a sacred spa space that is cleansed each morning with sage smudge sticks, and offers luscious range of organic, aromatherapy-based products and replenishing treatments that are tailored to ensure you float home.

    In Turramurra, a 35-minute drive north of central Sydney on the Upper North Shore, Gillian Adams Salon, Spa & Dining has also been providing high-end treatments for three decades. Behind the building’s Art Deco facade, you’ll find plush treatment rooms, spa and steam facilities, an oversized pool and a hair and beauty salon, plus a restaurant serving healthy meals on the terrace. Gather your friends for the 2.5-hour Le Social Spa-ing treatment — it’s available to groups of four or more and includes pool and steam time, a deluxe massage or facial, and cheese and wine.

    Serene getaway
    Inglis Day Spa sits on the top level of The William Inglis Hotel in Warwick Farm, a 40-minute drive southwest of the city centre. While the hotel celebrates Warwick Farm’s horseracing history (there’s a racecourse right next door) with an equine theme, the spa is all about relaxation and restoration. Modern spa suites are complemented by a rooftop pool with cabanas and lounges, and decadent treatments designed to pamper your senses. Try the 150-minute Crystal Healing treatment, which includes a muscle-melting hot-stone massage, rejuvenating facial and soothing head massage.
