Wellness & Day Spa Retreat: The Best Places To Get a Massage in Sydney

Sydney is known for its hustle and bustle, but what happens when you want to escape that and have a day to yourself? We’ve narrowed down a list of the states hidden gems – day spas that will have you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and like a whole new person.

Spa Sublime

Nestled in the heart of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, Spa Sublime uses only the highest quality 100 per cent Australian made products. It’s private and secluded, which offers a perfect way to spend quality time with friends or that special someone. Other than the traditional body massage, Spa Sublime also offers a scalp treatment, in the form of a hair mask which leaves the hair nourished and hydrated, as well as microblading to have those perfect eyebrows 24/7.

Crown Spa Sydney

Despite only opening in December 2020, Crown Spa Sydney has made a name for itself by offering indulgence and decadence. It overlooks the Barangaroo waterfront on the sixth level of the Crown Towers, providing a much-needed getaway in the heart of the bustling city. Natural light bounces off the marble floors and the resin walls and fluid shapes give the sense of water movement. Furthermore, the warm golden light establishes the picture of serenity. Clients can undergo anti-ageing treatments, reflexology, massages or facials.

Chi, The Spa at Shangri-La Hotel

The Shangri-La Hotel is known for its timeless elegance and classic luxury and the Chi spa is no different. Bathed in rich earthy tones, the spa is intimate with only six suites and a concise offering of the best treatments. The treatments are centred around the five Chi elements of wood, fire, metal water and earth and are designed to harmonise the body’s energy. It’s best to arrive early as you can squeeze in a quick workout at the gym, swim in the indoor pool or sit in the sauna.


Located in the epicentre of Paddington’s Oxford Street, Venustus, which means to love and care for, draws on ritual healing practices from around the world to massage both the body and soul. Venustus is balanced by the healing properties of the Rose and Clear Quartz crystals with the energy cleared and cleansed every morning with White Sage. Treatments take inspiration from the elements and incorporate techniques from all over the world. Their intuitive body massages have been compared to the tingling sensation you get when a hairdresser massages your scalp.

Endota Spa

Located on level three of the Four Seasons Hotel, the Endota Spa has honed in on a particular kind of experience of marble benchtops and gold trimmings. The spa offers a lengthy list with facials, body treatments, massages and local and international techniques. Despite being situated in the busy Circular Quay, as soon as you step into the spa the hustle and bustle fall away and you’re transported to another world.
