For my birthday I indulged in a Spa Socialising package with my best friends at The Day Spa by Chuan, situated in the Langham Hotel in Sydney. It’s a spa that’s regularly ranked as one of the best luxury spas in Sydney, so I was pretty excited! All three of us have full time jobs, and one has a toddler and the other is a doctor with an irregular timetable, so it took a while for us to find a time that worked for everyone, and a day spa in Sydney with a package we wanted. We were willing to splurge a bit more for this since it replaced a weekend away that we were originally planning, which meant we were saving a bunch on fuel and accommodation.
The Langham Hotel is situated a short walk away from Wynyard or Circular Quay station in Sydney’s CBD, near The Rocks and Barangaroo. We chose the Spa Socialising Afternoon Serenity package, which worked out to be $250 per person on a Saturday ($235 on weekdays). It includes your choice of an Ultimate Aromatherapy Massage or Babor Spa Facial (1 hour), followed by an Afternoon Tea with Wedgwood with a glass of champagne. You can also relax before and after with the hotel’s gym and swimming pool facilities (includes a jacuzzi and steam room). They have a no-rush policy so you don’t have to feel awkward about hanging out for too long!
