Get some bliss - you deserve it
My first visit to Tamborine Mountain Getaway Day Spa was pure bliss. Having a whole mineral spa, hydrotherapy bath and steam room to myself complete with robe, slippers and tea in the mountains was a luxury pampering experience I will never forget.
The genuine enthusiastic manner in which the staff spoke of the spa facilities upon my arrival and explained how to get the best from them was appreciated. Excellent customer service is the foundation of any great business and this day spa certainly delivers.
Driving into the tree lined driveway, the beautiful surrounding avocado farm and mountain setting kicks the relaxation process off to a flying start. The sun is shining, the sky is blue and the mountain air invigorating, I almost feel like setting out a picnic blanket and opening a bottle of bubbly.
Treatments offered include facials, massages, hot stones, avocado and Shea nut butter wrap, Hanakasumi, hot stones, massages, manicures and pedicures, waxing, tinting, spray tans and a range of other body treatments. Best of all, they are reasonably priced and full details of each treatment are listed on their Getaway Day Spa website along with current specials. Spa packages offer value by including private use of the hydrotherapy spa, mineral bath and steam room with treatments.
What I absolutely love about the Spa is that the private facilities can be booked with or without a treatment, giving it a unique point of difference. The private spa facility is contained in one huge room consisting of the gorgeous mineral bath, hydrotherapy spa, steam room, fireplace, lounge chairs, magazines, bar fridge, and tea facilities. The Day Spa provides robes, slippers, cold water and tea. Speak to staff about organising food and other drinks.
Most steam rooms have benches, but Getaway Day Spa goes the extra mile and includes chairs with stools to put up one's feet in the steam room. It is obvious from the little details, the owners have spent time and effort to make this whole facility as decadent and relaxing as possible.
Property on which the day spa is located
For those wanting to celebrate a special occasion, hen's night, or to enjoy a romantic evening, the private spa facility can be booked out in the evenings to provide a very special experience. About an hour from Brisbane, the Getaway Day Spa in Mount Tamborine offers the opportunity to escape the city, experience nature, and get totally pampered by qualified caring professionals.
Tip: After getting spoilt rotten at the Day Spa, prolong the pampering by finishing the day with a decadent high tea at High Tea and Niceties.
