In partnership with
Alamanda Palm Cove serves up a supreme spa experience with equal helpings of luxury, pampering and wellness, and it’s calling right now from Queensland’s tropical turquoise waters… Because sometimes you just need to hit the ‘reset’ button
‘Spa day’. Two words that instantly bring a warm fuzzy feeling to anybody who has ever experienced the bliss-inducing effects of a good rub-down or revitalising facial. The only thing better than a spa day? A spa day in a tropical setting – and you don’t get much more tropical than Tropical North Queensland, home to Alamanda Palm Cove.
Located 25 minutes north of sun-soaked Cairns and just metres from the beautiful esplanade of Palm Cove, direct beach access is just the beginning of a spa escape at Alamanda, where the backdrop is as therapeutic as the spa treatments themselves. From an age-defying facial to an indulgent five-hour cleansing of body, mind and spirit, Alamanda has you sorted if you’re looking for a holiday where wellness and self-care are a top priority.
Spa guests are spoiled with golden sand and sweeping views of the Coral Sea, as well as a long list of indulgent treatments to savour. But where to begin? Here are our top three spa experiences you’ll want to try at Alamanda, for the ultimate relaxing holiday:
Four Hands Massage
When it comes to massages more hands can only equal more bliss, so we are loving Alamanda’s 90-minute Four Hands Masage, which involves two therapists working simultaneously on the body in a choreographed massage. Long, slow, flowing strokes work to completely relax the body and mind in this unique experience everyone should try at least once.
Alamanda Ultimate Facial
If you always opt for a massage over a facial when looking for some relaxing me-time, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Alamanda’s Ultimate Facial is customised and tailored to suit your specific needs, with the treatment beginning with a consultation to discuss your skin. Using indulgent Eminence products, you’ll sink into a state of calm with a full neck and shoulder massage and full arm and hand massage topping off the rejuvenating experience. Add the Bright Eyes treatment and Citrus Plumping Lip Treatment for extra indulgence.
Palm Cove Escape
Got time to put five hours aside for some serious pampering? This day spa experience includes signature spatreatments as well as a dining experience courtesy of award-winning Nunu restaurant – voted 2017 Good Food Guide Queensland Regional Restaurant of the Year. Start with a 90-minute massage followed by a personalised body polish and wrap, before enjoying a healthy lunch and refreshment from Nunu. After lunch it’s back to pamper town with a refreshing facial treatment and an Alamanda hair and scalp treatment. Hot tip: Book the Private Spa Pavilion with its exclusive rooftop and private plunge pool for a few hours after your experience finishes and order a bottle of champagne to celebrate another day in paradise.
