Spa Intercontinental, Wellington 

I had the delight of experiencing one of Wellington’s best Day Spa’s while I was visiting last week.

After hearing about the renovations at the Intercontinental Hotel Wellington, I booked in for the thermal mud mask and massage signiture experience at Spa Intercontinental for some R&R at the end of my trip.

I felt well taken care of from the moment I walked in and met my therapist. She talked me through my treatment (eep mud!) and led me into a beautiful, low lit room.

The treatment began with a back cleanse, before the mud was applied. Glorious warm Rotorua mud allllll over my back. My back was then wrapped up and my head massage began.

I don’t know about you, but when I have a head massage, my eyes start rolling back in my head. It’s another state of relaxation all together for me. I never want it to end.

Once the mud wrap was washed off my back I had a lovely back, neck and shoulder oil massage to finish. My skin is super smooth – I highly recommend.

When the treatment was over, I was left to put on my robe and relax in the lounge with an assortment of teas and healthy snacks. Bliss!

I’m eyeing up another signiture treatment for next time I am in the country!

Thai Touch Massage & Day Spa – Newstead, Brisbane 

Remember how rainy and terrible the weather was on Saturday? Yeah. I did the best thing possible, I headed in to the new day spa in Newstead, Brisbane for some treatments!

Thai Touch Massage has beautiful, traditional decor, warm lighting and is very inviting. The lovely ladies make you feel very welcome and at home immediately. Just what you would expect from a luxury day spa, really!

I tried the Signature Thai Massage first. It was lovely and relaxing and I was stretched right out (almost like light yoga). I was left feeling totally loose and limber. Not to mention blissed out and relaxed. The girls definitely know what they’re doing.

I had the spa facial next. Talk about relaxing! I let the ladies look after everything while I enjoyed the pampering. Lovely Thai products, more massaging. The scalp massage has got to be one of my favourites. I always feel like going to sleep after!

I was left feeling like I was floating away on a cloud!

You should see the spa bath in the couples treatment room! I will certainly be back soon.
