“The Best IMAGE Sunshine Coast Spa’s 2017″

A part of my life that I truly love is writing about places & products I believe in and that have the stamp of Image approval all over them.

One such place is “Soul Skin & Spa” located a short but beautiful drive just fifteen minutes from my beloved home Noosa. It’s a tranquil place to relax, revive and renew spirit, soul and body. A world of beauty, health and healing and it had me at hello!

Owner Jenny Leis-Taylor offers bridal & baby showers, birthdays, Christmas & other parties. Participants pay just $120 per head that includes a treatment from her list of offerings, the use of the infrared sauna, spa and the lovely pool and surroundings nestled in bushland, making for a unique and gorgeous gathering place. You can also BYO & bring nibbles or arrange catering through Soul Skin.
One of the things that sets it apart is the specialized spa treatments that embrace a new level of wellness with a holistic approach to beauty using organic skincare with personalized natural remedies of Australian wildflowers, aromatherapy oils and Ayurvedic treatments. You will feel healed from the inside out and balanced with a renewed, youthful vitality.

I was treated to the “Signature Soul & Skin Spa” treatment that exceeded all of my expectations. It lasted 100 minutes and included a facial, back, shoulder, foot, hand and scalp massage and an energy healing chakra balance. Divine! And while there are many treatments to choose from I highly recommend this one, it left me feeling like a new woman. A visit if you are in the Sunshine Coast area is an absolute MUST!

Visit soulskinspa.com.au and the lovely Jenny will take very good care of all your needs.

Next I was off to a surprise find, “Mia Bella Beauty” in the Kawana Shopping World (yes you read right), a spa in a mall. I was eager to see it and loved my experience at this sweetly appointed and well educated spa. And for those of you who love convenience it’s definitely for you. Kerry and her wonderful staff are all outstanding .
They are focused on providing high quality service and customer satisfaction.
Mia Bella Beauty offers many outstanding treatments including eyebrow shaping and tints, spray tans, eyebrow feathering, waxing (female and male), mani & pedi’s, facials (express and classic), skin tightening, massage, micro dermabrasion, peels and photo rejuvenation. This friendly salon has something for everybody and is a wonderful addition to a holiday or becoming your favourite local beauty hangout.

Kerry chose a customized “High Performance Facial” for me that was 45 minutes of results driven bliss. At only $99 it leaves the face and neck supremely restored and rejuvenated. Sonopherisis and cold therapy are used in this advanced and customized facial to help eliminate dehydration, acne, sensitivity and ageing. My skin felt dramatically improved and with their product of choice (Dermalogica) the results were nothing less than extraordinary for such little time investment. My therapist used a small handheld tool to infuse the product even deeper into the skin with ultrasound technology providing a very state of the art experience with extra beneficial results.

Some might say I saved the best ’til last, Ikatan is certainly a favourite amongst locals, returning visitors from all over the world, myself included. Voted 4 times the “Best Destination Spa” in Australia and listed by Trip Advisor as one of the best things to do in Noosa. And is often referred to as the “Best Spa on the Sunshine Coast”.

Ikatan is the only luxury spa on the coast that offers an authentic Asian Spa experience with traditional Balinese massage and body treatments along with glorious facials and has a heavenly garden area for feet, hand and head treatments where you can sip on herbal tea while watching the world float by. You can also arrange to have food and drink included in your visit. The gardens are blissful and you won’t want to leave.

Owner Katrina Thorpe and her incredible staff help you step into a world far, far away with ease as you drift into a state of complete relaxation and new beginnings. I was given the Balinese massage that included 90 minutes of pure luxury and pleasure. It combined a blend of long flowing strokes and stretching by the therapist with aroma oil and massage to release the mind and relax the body. She then added an anti-ageing oil that complimented my heavenly experience. Everytime i visit here I fall more in love with it. It is outstanding and there’s no surprise that it wins award after award.
