Let Your Stress Drift Away

Edwina Cattanach drifts away while experiencing a signature day spa treatment in a tranquil environment.

Located at the Noosa Marina, Nu You Natural Beauty Day Spa has one of the most desirable waterfront locations with serene water views of the Noosa River. From the balcony you can sit and enjoy views of the moored boats, the sun shimmering on the water in this tranquil, colourful and eclectic day spa. 

Of course, your eyes will be closed for most of the time you are there, cocooned in the stylish and functional treatment rooms enjoying a range of top-to-toe treatments; but the stunning location sets the scene on arrival to provide a feeling of escaping from the everyday.

The welcoming reception area is the perfect place to relax before and after treatments or you can take full advantage of some treatments (mani-ped? Yes please!) which can be catered for whilst sitting on the deck overlooking the water.

This is where magic happens and it is your time to be transformed into a more relaxed and refreshed version of yourself.

I was fortunate to experience the Summer ‘Hydrate & Glow’ treatment with the gentle sounds of the water lapping beneath me whilst I enjoyed a welcoming herbal tea and fruit salad as my feet soaked in an aromatic Pure Fiji milk bath. Talk about setting the scene. Bliss!

“The world was gone from my mind and I knew that for the next 90 minutes peace and tranquillity were my friends.”

Boats bobbing on the water as I sat back taking it all in. After some feet soaking time, I was treated with a half-leg sugar scrub and massage, leaving my feet and legs feeling soft and nourished.

It was then time to move into my treatment room, softly lit with candles and calming music and then the face magic happened.

Using specialised Intraceuticals products the hydrating facial delivers dramatic and instant results. Starting with a double cleanse and exfoliation, face and decolletage massage and then the hydration mask.

Whilst the mask is doing its job, your beauty consultant takes your arms, hands and feet under their spell, massaging you into yet another state of oblivious bliss.

The finalé is the trio moisture system of serum, hydration gel and moisture binding cream. The worst part of this
90 minutes is knowing that it is over.

Nu You offers a range of treatments that can be enjoyed solo, with a partner or friends. All the luxurious spa packages include a welcome tray upon arrival, followed by a refreshment tray at the end of your treatment in the beautiful waterfront lounge.

You truly do leave feeling like a ‘Nu You,’ and certainly more relaxed than when you arrived.
