Bohemian Beauty

Edwina Cattanach embraced her inner bohemian to experience the latest sensory journey from Stephanies Ocean Spa Noosa.

With the winter months leaving their mark on your skin, it makes perfect sense to ‘spring’ into the warmer weather with a spa treatment that deeply hydrates and nourishes your skin back to life. 

Nestled in the beautiful leafy surrounds of Peppers Noosa Resort is the luxurious haven, Stephanies Ocean Spa. A leader in the luxury spa industry, Stephanie Shepherd opened her first spa 26 years ago and today has five luxurious spas in Clear Mountain, Brisbane and Noosa. Each offering its own unique feel but with the same attention to detail, professional training and welcoming approach.

Stephanies Ocean Spa has been providing luxury spa services in Noosa for ten years and recently underwent a beautiful refurb and refresh – just like the one I’m about to enjoy! Stephanie’s takes you on a journey of tranquillity and peace, soft lighting, soulful music, in warm and comfortable surrounds. This is a destination to calm the mind; inhale the scents and know that regardless of your treatment choice, it is your time to relax and unwind. You’re in good hands.

‘Bohemian Beauty’ at Stephanies Ocean Spa could be defined as one of those spa treatments that is both artistic and unusual, bringing peace, tranquillity and rejuvenation to your mind, body and soul.

Arriving early to take advantage of the ‘tranquillity’ room and wrapped in the heavenly softness of the provided robe,
I curled up on one of the large round daybeds and from there took it all in, feeling calm and excited for what was to come. My spa therapist introduced herself and led me through to the beautifully appointed treatment room, where I was to spend the next 100 minutes of pure bliss.

Our feet rarely get much attention, so it was certainly a great place to start – and oh how grateful they were, particularly after pounding the pavement working with many local businesses on their campaigns for this edition of IN Noosa Magazine. In my treatment room waiting for me was the Geisha footbath where my feet were soaked and washed in geisha milk and rose petals. A coconut and vanilla foot scrub was applied, whilst my therapist consulted me on preferences for massage pressure, my current skin condition, and the outcome I was hoping for from the Classical Facial. Everything to help cater my experience to my specific needs.

What came next was a beautiful, refreshing and invigorating back scrub which exfoliated and detoxified those difficult-to-get-to places. A luxuriating hot towel cleansed my skin and I was totally ready for the back massage to come. I like it firm and my therapist did not disappoint.

A nourishing and moisturising beauty balm concentrate was applied to further hydrate my back.  The only disappointment was when and I knew this part of my treatment was over… I could have stayed there for hours! A quick spritz on the shoulders of ‘Zen’ a muscular tension tincture made from all-natural ingredients and it was time to roll over to commence my one-hour Classical Facial.

Given my age, how my skin was feeling and the results of yet another dry winter, my therapist had chosen to use products from the Payot skincare range, one of their many ranges available. Botanical based, the Payot range supports youth processing, anti-ageing and is nothing short of luxurious! After a double cleanse, tone, exfoliation and a 20-minute ‘face massage’ (insert a few snoring sounds) the incredible cucumber and fig facial mask was applied. Whilst this was penetrating into my skin, heavenly hands moved to my head to top of the luxurious experience.

If you are looking to rejuvenate and welcome spring with nourished and deeply hydrated skin, book in for one of the Spring treatments available at Stephanies. Or look into the combined therapy and water treatments in the specialised private treatment suites; a triple suite with a colour therapy mineral flotation pool, or one of the two couple suites with either a Geisha couples hydro bath or a hand crafted timber bath for that individual bath experience.

Every treatment is well thought out and focused on luxurious, detoxifying and all-natural ingredients. Whatever your preference, a world of bliss awaits!
