Perth’s Most Luxurious Day Spas For Urban Retreats
Perth's best health retreats and day spas offer a super-charged way to relax and recharge, when a short break isn't possible.
We all need to hit the pause button every once in a while. Unfortunately, time doesn’t always allow for a week-long tropical island escape; but spending just a few hours at a lush day spa can be just the break you need from the fast-paced city lifestyle. These Perth day spas all fit the bill.
Whether you want a full day of blissed out pampering, or just a 30-minute eye-brightening facial, these luxurious spas are the top spots to unwind and refresh.
Bodhi J Day Spa
With two locations in Perth – and a third just opened in the Margaret River region – Bodhi J is a powerhouse in the day spa scene. Dedicated to holistic treatment, they take mind and body alignment one step further than just massage and relaxation. Throughout the week, they offer regular yoga classes at their Pier St spa, available as a stand-alone purchase, or an add on to your spa experience.
Using Perth’s own Sodashi skincare, Bodhi J specialise in luxury, natural and organic therapies. While they offer traditional 60-minute aromatherapy ($125) and deep tissue ($135) massages, it is treatments like the crystal sound healing ($150) and 90-minute Sodashi Chakra Balancing ($210) that set Bodhi J apart from the rest. Let yourself drift off to the sounds of a crystal Didjeridu and other indigenous sound healing instruments; or find a calm, meditative state through the synergy of massage, essential oils and crystals.

Annasha Day Spa
Tucked away on lush, green acreage in the Perth hills, Annasha Day Spa is a 25-minute drive from the Perth CBD. Housed in a 100-year-old renovated girls school, a visit to the quaint spa is as close as you can get to a country escape, without the long drive or time sacrifice.
Make the most of the quiet, semi-rural location and book in for a 5-hour indulgence package ($690); or take your loved one along to enjoy a sumptuous Annasha couples retreat ($850) together. Soak in the tranquility of the country side, take time out and recharge together. The 3-hour package journeys through a welcoming ritual, salt exfoliation, relaxing Swedish massage and a Sodashi facial, before some refreshments in the relaxation lounge.

Como Shambhala Urban Escape
The Como Treasury’s in-house day spa is a truly luxurious city escape. Housed within a six-star hotel, you wouldn’t expect any less. Sleek and minimal by design, the spa favours natural wood and stone finishes to create a fuss-free, relaxing therapy space. Being in the CBD there are no 6-hr spa journeys here, but Como Shambhala does offer some unique experiences tailored for its locale.
In-house guests of The Como Treasury can book in for a 120-minute jetlag recovery package ($215) that includes a 75-minute massage, bright eyes facial treatment, and a foot soak and scrub. If work is getting on top of you and a lunch break is all you have, a 30-minute eye awakening treatment ($75) or 45-minute back massage ($95) are the perfect express treatments to help perk you up for the remainder of the day.

Crown Spa Perth
Forget clean lines and minimalism, as Crown Spa Perth is as opulent as they come. Decked out in white, royal shades of blue, and gold, the spa caters for those who prefer the finer things in life. With the most luxurious of therapy rooms, and even a separate aqua retreat with a pool and sauna, there is no detail spared in the Crown Spa experience.
Using both the natural Subtle Energies skincare line, and the decadent La Prairie range, Crown Spa has an extensive treatment menu to suit even the most discerning of customers. Indulge yourself in the ultimate of luxury with an exclusive La Prairie ‘Swiss bliss’ spa package ($500), which includes a full body exfoliation, 90-minute Caviar body massage and a 90-minute Caviar lift facial. For something really decadent, pamper yourself from head to toe with a 5 hour and 45-minute complete spa package – a full body massage, facial and complimentary lunch; followed by a manicure, pedicure, hair wash and blow-dry.
Crown Perth, Great Eastern Hwy, Burswood
Set amongst lakes, waterfalls and 10 acres of sprawling gardens, Onyesha Spa in Perth’s northern suburbs is as serene as it comes. Their traditional treatment rooms come with views of the garden or rainforest, but their private outdoor villas and pavilions have the best views of them all. Looking out over the lake, the pavilions and villas are best experienced in spring or summer, when you can take your treatment to the open air deck and relax whilst surrounded by fragrant roses.
Pop in for a sumptuous one hour relaxation massage ($149) or Esscential facial ($159); or book yourself in for a ‘Day in Paradise’ ($870) spa package, to allow you to fully indulge in the gorgeous surrounds. Take in the serenity over the course of 6 hours, while you immerse yourself in a body exfoliation, body wrap, rainforest sauna, full body massage, facial, scalp massage and pedicure.
