  1. Sink into fragrant baths, relax with indulgent treatments and bliss out in the best Sydney spas.
    By Renate Ruge

    The Day Spa
    The Observatory Hotel
    89-113 Kent Street, The Rocks
    Phone: +61 2 9256 2222
    Five star facials, couples massages, luxe La Prairie products, thick towels, petal-filled footbaths, candlelit treatment rooms and a deep pool with twinkling lights that look like stars on a midnight blue ceiling. Spend lots of time pre- or post-treatment in the Grecian style pool relaxation area and get steamy in the sauna and eucalyptus scented steam room.
    Chi Spa
    Shangri-La
    176 Cumberland Street
    The Rocks
    Phone: (61 2) 9250 6000
    CHI means life force and massages and treatments at Chi spa at Sydney’s Shangri-La are based on this Chinese Medicine mantra. Ayurveda is practiced here too. Herbal poultices, Asian massage therapies; hot stone and foot therapy restore energy will all leave you walking on air. Add to that cashmere blankets, a top class gym, a slinky swimming pool with sun deck and ‘spas within spas’ to enjoy a little private space and aroma steam showers and infinity edge spa tubs for a relaxing soak.
    Azul Day Spa
    6 Cowper Wharf Road,
    Woolloomooloo
    Phone: (61 2) 9380 4908
    www.azul.com.au
    Azul is the perfect pamper drop-in spot, with views over Woolloomooloo wharf, to watch the boats sail by while you get your mani-pedi done. Enter shiny white treatment rooms, to emerge hours later all scrubbed and massaged. The concept of hair and beauty salon combining means no need to wreck your nails or race to a hairdresser after a spa treatment as you can have hair and make-up done here too. Emerge pampered and groomed to perfection. A one-stop bliss out shop.

    The Hilton’s recently refurbished spa – Alysium day spa is neatly attached to the Livingwell gym and its lovely 25-metre pool. Away from all the exercise, the spa provides a little oasis of calm. Flying in to Sydney? Try the treatment for weary travelers arriving in town on the early morning red eye routes. Rejuvenate with a massage using a special reviving oil, a fusion of juniper berry, pink grapefruit, rosemary and eucalyptus and an Ayurvedic scalp massage to re-balance and soothe the body.
    The Spa at Four Seasons

    Some spas just do it better. This is one of them. Head to the outdoor pool in the summer for a cooling retreat. Inside the spa, find lime-infused water, fluffy white towels and robes a steam and sauna and showers with huge heads and cozy dressing rooms spacious change areas and every little detail covered.
    Try: the crystal facial rejuvenation where warm precious crystals of carnelian, rose quartz and green aventurine are massaged over the face to promote healing and balance energy. The warmth from the crystals deeply relaxes facial muscles and the Sodashi’s plant essences work their magic on your skin. As the treatment goes for a blissful 90 minutes, be careful not to zone out too, too much.

Treat yourself to the Revive Package, which includes a Relaxation Massage followed by a Skin Rescue Facial but be sure to make time to have a work out in the super gym, a dip in the pool and some relaxing moments in the swirling waters of the Jacuzzi.
