Nestled among the trees in Brisbane's western suburb of Indooroopilly, Rainesforest Massage and Day Spa Retreat truly is a hidden gem. A perfect pampering escape for that bit of R&R we all need once in a while.
With 11 treatment rooms, 7 individual spa/sauna/relaxation areas and opening hours that make it possible to visit morning, afternoon or evening (7 days a week), you have the freedom to choose as to what suits you best.
Offering a variety of treatments and massage packages (including health fund qualified treatments) for individuals, couples, groups and parties, Rainesforest has it all. Whether you are seeking a pregnancy massage, acupuncture, facials, hot stones or bridal showers, there over 70 different kinds of treatments/packages you can choose from to enjoy. Not to mention the option of your own private spa bath, sauna, showering and relaxation area. As an added bonus there are even complimentary coffee/tea, biscuits and jelly beans on the relaxation deck to be enjoyed before and after your treatment if you so wish.
Struggling for an idea for a birthday gift? Try their Happy Birthday Treat package which includes a 1-hour tailored Massage treatment before 50-minutes in your own outdoor spa/sauna/relax area where they serve you a birthday cupcake, champagne and chocolates (non alcoholic and gluten free options available). A perfect present for the woman who has it all. They'll even take a silly photo for you as a memento of the day and send it on to you later.
For even the most masculine of males they have the Male Rescue and De-Stress Packages, where after their treatments of foot scrubs, facials, or whatever they have chosen they can enjoy a beer on the relaxation deck. Sure to make him feel like a king for the day.
If purchasing for a friend or family member you can also mix and match treatments to a dollar value, great if your on a limited budget. Gift vouchers are beautifully presented and can be mailed out to the recipient as a surprise to the lucky individual.
Be sure to check out their website as they often have daily deals for last minute packages.
As it is only a 3 minute walk from Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, after a relaxing treatment and being pampered to pieces, you can make your way to the centre for some retail therapy. All in a days work.
