I often head to Sydney to catch up with my daughter, so I’m always on the look out for things for us to do together, besides eating! Although we tend to do a lot of that as well.
I also like to refresh my treatments and skills and swipe any good techniques. So when I saw this great offer on Groupon I had to try it.
I bought the Spa Package for two people - which I thought was a bargain for $259. It included a 70 minute treatment each, iced tea or a glass of bubbly, a sweet treat and all day access to the pool, sauna, spa and gym. The gym looked good, but we didn’t use it :)
Booking was easy; I rang to make sure we could book for the day we were going to be together in the city before I purchased the offer. I was able to book us both at the same time, with a choice of a double room or individual rooms. We opted for the double.
We arrived an hour before our appointment time so that we could fill out the consent form and relax in the sauna before our treatments. My daughter chose the combination massage and facial with facial massage while I decided on the facial and the foot treatment.
After our sauna we were shown through to a private lounge area and served herbal tea. Our therapists went through our forms and then we were taken to the treatment room. It was warmed, as was the bed. My daughter said that her massage and facial were amazing.
I loved my Alpeor facial! I’d mentioned that my favourite part was the facial massage, so the therapist concentrated on that. It was beautiful, a firm lift and drain technique that delivers a great result. Once the mask was applied I received a relaxing pressure point foot massage.
After our treatments we headed to the outdoor spa and were served our refreshments - bubbly for Tara and iced peach tea for me along with a layered creamy cake that was yummy.
If you want to treat yourself or gift someone special, this is a good option. It definitely exceeded my expectation as often these deals don’t quite deliver what they say. So grab a friend or two and make a day of it.
