A few months ago I attended the Sofitel Girls Race Day Out in Brisbane & to my surprise I managed to come out if with more than just a hangover, I won a gift for two at the renowned Sofitel Brisbane's Stephanie Spa Retreat.

The luxury day spa is located on the third floor of Sofitel Brisbane Central at 249 Turbot Street in Brisbane City. It offers hotel guests and all others treatments such as massages, facials, waxing, pedicures, treatments and so much more.

Thanks to the amazing generosity of Stephanie's Spa Retreat, my sister and I were excited for our own slice of heaven at the Day spa with a gift card for 2 for the 'Opal Rasul Temple'. The Opal Rasul Temple is an intense one hour experience in a secluded steam room with 3 signature mineralised masks for face, upper and lower body to cleanse and nourish your skin.

When I say intense, the entire room you are in is beautifully lit by candles and a 'night sky' ceiling but with steam so thick you literally can't see in front of you and dim lighting, those who are claustrophobic or asthmatic (myself) remember to breathe, drink plenty of water and move around if you feel dizzy. Also, you may have to shed some layers in the practice, so it's important to do this with someone you will feel comfortable with.

I couldn't get a photo of the room itself, but here is the booklet with the Opal Rasum Temple featured

The three masks I mentioned before are one for your face with anti-ageing benefits and separate mixes for the upper and lower body. You are given a scrub mat before the steam begins to remove all dead or dry skin cells to fully enrich your experience and see the best results. The temple has it's own attached "ensuite" with showers to begin the experience and a quick note: if you leave the door closed to the showers, it becomes a little safe haven if the heat gets too much for you in the temple!

The tranquil lounge to relax & enjoy your sorbet after your treatment

Although the experience is only an hour (although I don't think I would have lasted any longer), it was one of the best experiences that I have ever had to fully relax, wind down and essentially treat my body to something it definitely needed. You will walk out red-faced but with the smoothest skin and the mango sorbet at the end, you will feel relaxed, pampered and spoilt for choice.

Your choice of Mango Sorbet or Tea after your treatment, safe to say I was excited about Sorbet!

I'd also just like to say a massive thank you to the staff at Stephanie's Spa Retreat. Ivan, who booked us in and welcomed us at the front desk upon arrival was one of the loveliest people I've ever met and this being my first time at a Spa made me feel so comfortable and relaxed.
