The Shangri-La hotel is one of the most luxurious hotels in Sydney, so you know you’re basically guaranteed an amazing experience in their spa, CHI. The menu is full of authentic natural healing treatments inspired by traditional practices shared among many Asian cultures. CHI has three signature massages, one of which incorporates hot stones for thermotherapeutic benefits. Your muscle tension will melt away and you’ll feel as if you’re on cloud nine.

2. Venustus

You’re in safe, pampering hands at Venustus. Unassuming from the outside and tucked into a quintessential Paddington terrace, once inside, you’ll find a more modern setting, where white-on-white creates a serene atmosphere to relax your worries away. Be sure to try the 5-star facial. As the name suggests, this treatment is all luxury and is undertaken by the very knowledgeable staff who will treat your skin as if you are royalty.

3. The Spa at Park Hyatt Sydney

Although the Hyatt is located in the heart of the city, you will hardly be able to tell—the hustle and bustle disappear as soon as you enter. Arguably among the best treatments is the aromatherapy facial, which will have your face glowing. Top it off will a trance-inducing scalp massage and a foot rub.

4. The Darling Spa

5. Karpati Medispa

Beauty Salon

You can find this popular medispa in Sydney’s Double Bay area. During the more than 20 years they’ve been in business, the spa has built a loyal following of regulars who flock here to enjoy the large list of treatments, including high-tech solutions like infusions and ultrasound treatments. While you’re here, you can also get your regular waxing done.

6. The Day Spa by Chuan

This spa is located in the Langham Sydney hotel and features an indoor pool that looks as if it were ripped from a movie set with an ancient-Roman theme. The spa’s very apt motto, “detox, renew, relax and rejuvenate,” is perfectly suited. It’s impossible not to feel totally renewed when leaving, especially after the $710+ Champagne and Gold Indulgence experience, which includes a full-body massage, skin-lifting facial, deluxe manicure and pedicure, as well as light lunch and a glass of Laurent-Perrier.t
