A Blissful Experience
My Mother's Day treat this year was a trip to Buddha Gardens Day Spa. I have had many massages and treatments over the years, but this one was above and beyond anything I have ever before experienced. Sheer Bliss.
This delightful Balinese style spa is calm and welcoming.
From the moment you step in the door, you feel calmer. The atmosphere is peaceful and gentle. The therapists were quiet, welcoming and highly competent. Every movement was gentle, nurturing and heavenly. The products used were of high quality. I have very sensitive skin and my body felt revitalised and smooth for several days afterwards.
Our Spa Journey package included a scrub, shower, massage and facial. This price included use of the sauna and heated plunge pool. There are so many choices on the menu including a men's facial, massage and pedicure. The treatments are not cheap but they are worth every cent!
The Spa is in an unlikely location at the entrance to the Arthouse Lounge Cinema and Byron Bay Brewery but once inside you could imagine you are in Bali.
We drove down from Brisbane and back again (2 hours each way). Obviously it would be even more relaxing if you were staying nearby.
The Orchid room has a bath set into rock, a day bed and 2 treatment tables.
