Wellness Spas & Retreats to Rejuvenate Your Senses this April

Had a frantic February? Did March make you mad? Sounds like you could use a big well-being boost this April. From Brisbane to Byron, we’re covering the best wellness spas in our region. Give these chic, soul-soothing retreats a visit to revitalise your body and mind.

Greenhouse The Bathhouse, Tallebudgera Valley

You don’t have to venture far to treat your weary self to a proper good pampering. Located in Tallebudgera Valley, this tranquil oasis is one of the best-rated spas in the Gold Coast. Five soothing wellness spaces sit within the charming weatherboard cottage, including a red cedar sauna, a sun deck, a steam room, and a magnesium plunge pool.

Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat, Tallebudgera Valley

A little further inland, this ultramodern spa sits within a scenic Tallebudgera Valley eco-resort. Non-guests can hit up its famous wellness centre (for a fee), where 33 treatment rooms offer every therapy under the sun—Gwinganna is the Southern Hemisphere’s largest spa. From acupuncture to Ayurveda massage and aromatherapy, there’s nothing you won’t find here.

On Eagle Wings Mountain Retreat & Spa, Mudgeeraba

High in the Gold Coast hinterlands, Eagle Wings is a heavenly mountain retreat with a soothing in-house day spa. Sweeping hilltop vistas (best admired from the infinity pool), fresh mountain air and a non-clinical approach make for a unique spa experience. Pamperings span pedicures to facials and full body massages.

Chuan Spa, Gold Coast

Fancy a special treat? Hit the Chuan Spa, a luxurious Surfers Paradise haunt hidden within the ritzy Langham hotel. While pricier than others, its soothing beige-hued décor and traditional Chinese-style treatments make Chuan worth the splurge. Choose from couples rooms and gender-segregated saunas, or plunge into its diamond-shaped indoor pool.

SOL Elements, Tambourine Mountain

Inspired by the Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi, SOL Elements is an exotic Eastern wellness centre set to open soon (late 2024) in Tamborine Mountain. Top-tier restorative treatments will include communal onsens, float therapy rooms, infrared saunas, plunge pools and a Himalayan salt cave. Encircled by thick forests, its verdant leafy setting aims to foster a closer connection with the natural world—a la Wabi Sabi.

Halcyon Spa, Cabarita

Planning a breezy Cabarita Beach holiday? Add a bit of therapeutic bliss to your busy beach-bumming schedule with a visit to Halcyon Spa. Set inside a glam mid-century boutique named Halcyon House, this stunning wellness centre personifies the vibrant retro theme. Expect technicoloured tiles, highly skilled hands, and top-shelf Sodashi products.

The Banya, Mullumbimby

Situated in central Mullumbimby, the Banya is a small boutique bathhouse with a big heart. Highlights include the marble-tiled pool, wood-fired sauna, and twin mineral pools. For an exhilarating hot-cold experience, slow-roast yourself in the steam room before hopping into the icy plunge pool—the Scandinavian way!

Comma, Byron Bay

As the name suggests, Comma is about taking a moment to breathe, regenerate, and reflect. This swanky Byron-based spa offers a smorgasbord of services, from detoxifying body clay treatments to thermodynamic basalt stone massages. Grab a bunch of elixirs from the apothecary to keep the relaxation rolling at home.
