We love the Sunshine Coast here at Ushop. We’re very fond of the laid back pace and the amazing, not so crowded beaches. We also love Noosa and Hastings Street.
But there’s more to the Sunshine Coast than just beaches and laid back people. You will find some of the best day spas not just in Queensland but all of Australia on the Sunshine Coast.
Not only are the day spas here of a super high quality, the surroundings aren’t half bad either. Quite a few of the top 9 we’ve chosen today are either set in rainforests or near the beach.
But, enough talk about the beauty of the Sunshine Coast, let’s get straight into our top list!
Day Spas On The Sunshine Coast & Day Spas In Noosa | Our Top 9 Choices
Aqua Day Spa Noosa | Noosa Heads
The Aqua Day Spa sits inside the Sheraton Hotel and is considered one of the best day spas in Noosa. The atmosphere inside the spa is pretty traditional, with calming cream colours and natural stone and wood work. The spa also serves up fruit platters and ginger honey tea while you wait on your spa treatment to begin.
Aqua Spa also includes eight different treatment rooms including a romantic couple’s spa room as well, perfect for a couples massage. While heading to a hotel for a massage or day spa treatment might not sound ultra luxurious, (but this is the Sheraton after all!) Aqua Day Spa does an excellent job of making their treatments feel intimate and relaxing.
With a plethora of treatments, packages, and specialised massages available to choose from, Aqua Day Spa is an excellent place to relax and rejuvenate in Noosa Heads.
If you are looking for the ultimate in luxury, then you will want to try our their indulgence day spa package which lasts for a whopping 4 hours. In includes, among other things, a body scrub, wrap and massage.
Considering what you get, we think the $465 price tag is pretty reasonable!
Casa Di Natura | Flaxton
There is nothing quite like experiencing full relaxation in the middle of a real rainforest, and at Casa Di Natura that is exactly what you get. Positioned on a full eight acres of incredible Australian rainforest, Casa Di Natura is a dream come true for spa lovers. Another big perk offered by Casa Di Natura is their customised spa packages. Tailored to fit your needs, their custom packages include a wide selection of all natural minerals and products.
Not only does the spa offer up premier treatments, but their site also has a special tab for ‘special deals’ so head over to their site before you book your appointment. Between their solar-heated magnesium pool and gorgeous natural surroundings, Casa Di Natura easily makes it onto our list.
If you are looking for a couples massage or treatment package, Casa Di Natura have you covered. They currently have a couples hideaway special package on offer, which is 2.5 hours of relaxation for $395.
Divinity Spa | Buderim
Divinity Spa is more than just a place to book a standard massage, you can get virtually any beauty treatment you need all in this one convenient location. While Divinity Spa does offer extensive spa services, their specialty is IPL hair removal. Their treatment selection offers this medical grade service as well as plenty of other beauty services including Contour and skin oxygenation, and hot stone massages.
Divinity Spa also provides serious specials throughout the year, and places them conveniently on their website. If you are looking for a Sunshine Coast spa that does a little bit of everything, and does it well, then check out the Divinity Day Spa.
Why not pop in for a facial? With express, 35 minute facials costing only $59, that’s great value.
Ikatan Day Spa | Doonan
Nominated as the Best Destination Day Spa on the Sunshine Coast four times, Ikatan Day Spa offers an incredibly diverse and expansive list of treatments. Specialising in traditional Balinese treatments, Ikatan Day Spa is one of those rare places where you can find truly authentic, first class services for standard day spa prices.
Beautiful Balinese gardens surround a completely relaxing interior environment. Ikatan lets you plan your whole day around a trip to the spa with their personalised ‘retreat for a day’ packages. They last for 8 hours and it’s fully inclusive of food and treatments, which are personalised to suit what you are looking for.
We can’t think of a better way to spend a day. They of course offer individual treatments and smaller day spa packages, but for $895, we think their retreat for a day package is hard to beat.
If you are looking for a quicker trip, we’d recommend stopping in for a facial and then trying out their High Tea menu.
Stephanie’s Ocean Spa | Noosa Heads
As far as day spas in Noosa go, you can’t go too far wrong with our next choice! If you are looking for ocean spa services that connect with your mind, body, and soul then Stephanie’s Ocean Spa is your ticket to bliss. Stephanie’s has a total of 11 treatment rooms (including a couples suite) each with their own extremely unique services.
Treatments include a Flotation Pool, Vinotherapy suite, and even a Geisha bath suite.
In general, their day spa treatments start at a full 40 minutes and work their way up to a full half day worth of luxury. If you need some waxing done, then you can also head over to Stephanie’s Ocean Spa as they provide virtually every waxing treatment you could need. Getting married, and need professional makeup services? They do that too.
Stephanie’s two hour retreats start from $279 or if you are after a hot stone massage, 100 minutes of pampering will set you back a reasonable $198.
Soul & Skin Spa | Peregian Beach
Located right off Lake Weyba Peregian, Soul & Skin Spa is in the perfect spot for relaxation and rejuvenation. Touting a ‘holistic approach’ to spa treatments, the Soul & Skin Spa provides more than just a place to get a massage. They use high performance products to produce personalised skin care packages for each of their clients.
From aromatherapy oils to Ayurvedic inspired therapies, Soul & Skin Spa uses the best natural products available. Obviously, if you are looking for something a little deeper than just a facial or pedicure, then you might want to check out their Body Ritual treatments. With package names like ‘Body Polish’ and ‘Wildflower Body Regeneration’ how can you really go wrong?
A 30 minute body polish (which consists of a organic coconut & frangipani body scrub) will cost you $60 and a 90 minute mineral mud wrap will set you back $185.
Amytis Garden Retreat | Kiels Mountain
16 acres of prime mountain real estate is the location for Amytis Garden Spa Retreat. This unique day spa is positioned in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and offers an incredibly diverse selection of services to choose from. Interestingly, Amytis Garden retreat also plays host to a Thai Food cooking school.
But if you are more interested in the relaxing services rather than the food that the retreat offers, then you will love their pampering services. Utilizing a blend of nature and science to create unique services that relax and calm the body, Amytis Garden Retreat is the perfect place to go if you want to experience serenity in an all natural environment.
We’d recommend checking out their ‘buffet package” which costs $210 and lasts for 110 minutes and consists of any of the 3 following treatments; facial, foot care, half body massage, body exfoliation, Bedouin outdoor spa bath and or a pedicure.
Noosa Springs | Noosa Heads
Noosa Springs is more than just a great day spa, it’s a great place to stay and a few of us here at Ushop have been lucky enough to stay for a few nights. But you’re not here to learn about their accommodation options, you want to know what they can offer you in terms of relaxation.
One thing to note is that the spa here wasn’t an after thought like in some resorts, it stands firmly on it’s own two legs. When it comes to facilities, they pretty much have it all, starting with a HydroMassage pool, floatation pool, (one of only a handful in all of Australia), sauna, steam room, blitz shower, geisha bath, couples outdoor spa and a heated lap pool.
When it comes to treatments, they offer everything from facials to scrubs to massages to wraps and of course day spa packages. Treatments are quite affordable, with 55 minute body scrubs and wraps starting from $125 and 55 minute facials also starting from $125.
One thing you should do is check out their packages and specials page. You will find quite significant discounts, especially if you book in a few nights accommodation.
Allure Medi Spa & Beauty Lounge | Maroochydore
Boutique and personalised is the best way to describe Allure Medi Spa & Beauty Lounge, one of our favourite day spas in Maroochydore. We love the fact they everything they use is purely organic.
They have 5 well equipped treatment rooms, including a room just for couples and also a relaxation lounge. Allure is very well known for their amazing facials with 9 different facials on offer. They also do, what we think are some of the best day spa packages on the Sunshine Coast in terms of treatments and pricing.
Speaking of pricing, their facials start from $69 and they day spa packages start from $150 for 105 minutes of ultimate pampering.
