Between flutters of excitement and eager anticipation, planning your wedding or engagement party can also amount to high levels of stress, anxiety and goodness knows what else. Perhaps an inappropriate blow up at the family dinner table, tears in the bathroom or the dreaded scream at your office desk with the door closed. But now that you think about it, was the door actually closed? Luckily, the ladies behind The Bath House know exactly what you need – a little R&R.
It’s true that the Gold Coast is moving up in the world of day spas and with The Bath House being the only communal rejuvenation centre on the Gold Coast, it makes for a perfect excuse to take your ladies there and celebrate your hen’s event, bridal shower, engagement party or just to switch off for a little bit. Or maybe you and your other half have been dreaming of escaping from the wedding prep pressures and just want to chill out together. After one visit you’ll wonder how you ever lived without The Bath House’s totally zen day spa facilities.
Inspired by bathhouses in Japan and Morocco, you’ll find that The Bath House has a much more modern feel to it. With plunge pools, outdoor showers, scattered cacti and handpicked décor, this haven appears to feel even more luxurious than we ever could have imagined.
The perfect setting for a serious sink into relaxville with the girls, your trip to The Bath House for a special event, hens, engagement party or secret soak sesh with your lover will begin with a quick change into your bathers and a rinse off at one of the many outdoor showers. Then make your way to a selection of bubbling hydrotherapy spas, a eucalyptus wet steam room set to a piping 50 degrees and cool off in the icy magnesium plunge pool. Finally, head to the red cedar dry sauna and drizzle water over steaming rocks for a seriously hot way to loosen up. Take a breather, sit back and unwind at this tranquil bathhouse, and then soak, steam and plunge as many times as you like.
While you’re at it, embrace The Bath House’s tropical atmosphere by drinking from a coconut, reviving with a cup of hot ginger tea or indulging in a glass of champagne to celebrate what’s to come. Lap up the sunlight on The Bath House’s outdoor deck and unwind with a healthy dose of vitamin D. Trust us, once you’re in this relaxed state, your bridesmaid’s dresses and catering costs will be the last things on your mind.
With sessions lasting around 90 minutes, you and your besties will have plenty of time to catch up, laze and chat about the important things in life. Like when the next season of The Bachelor is starting, where you can go out to sushi later and who’s up for a mani-pedi.
The Bath House girls have also opened two treatment rooms for massage and beauty treatments. Their massages combine the traditional Hawaiian KaHuna style, which is rarely found on the Gold Coast, with soothing essential oils used during Balinese back rubs. Not only are massages incredible for the body, they’re also fabulous for the mind. Feel your worries melt away with every stress alleviating caress, stroke and press. We’re serious when we say that those notorious planning tensions will be completely rubbed away by the end of your sixty-minute massage.
All of that relaxing is destined to work up an insatiable hunger, so luckily The Bath House girls have got you sorted. Peruse The Botanical Bar with its fresh salads and raw treats, as well as cold-pressed juices and tonics for the ultimate ending to this tranquil experience. A testament to their beautiful vegan choices at restaurant Greenhouse Canteen, the ladies have a wide range of wholesome options at The Bath House for you to enjoy as well. Lazing in the sun on the top deck with a full tummy, soft skin and a big ol’ grin – you’ll feel rejuvenated inside and out after a visit to The Bath House.
