The Darling Spa is Sydney’s best kept secret. You know a place is truly exceptional when they don’t even need social media. This spa brings in their loyal clientele simply through word of mouth and is something only to be experienced by being there.
Located in the Sydney’s Star Hotel, this award-winning spa was named one of the best spas in the world by Forbes magazine, making it the only place in the city of Sydney to receive such an honour.
Upon entering this dimly lit, heavenly facility, peaceful music and pleasant scents envelope you into a tranquil escape from the bustling city outside. With high standards and personalized services, they go above and beyond to create a truly transformative self-care experience for their clients. A tea lounge, Zen relaxation lounge, Moroccan hammam, steam room and jacuzzi all set the mood for ultimate relaxation.
Known for their exclusive relationships with some of the most decadent products available in the country, the La Prairie and Li’tya product lines are incorporated into all of their treatments.The most popular treatment and unique to the Darling Spa is the La Prairie Caviar Lift Facial 90 minutes at $310 AUD. This facial is the epitome of luxury, using caviar extracts combined with a one-of-a-kind face massage. The use of warm derma globes helps ingredients to penetrate the skin completely, leaving you with an exceptionally plump and smooth complexion afterwards.
The most indulgent treatment “The Dreaming” is offered at $580 AUD for 3 hours and is a whole-body experience. It includes a foot and body massage, body wrap, hand treatment, exfoliation and a customized facial – and if that’s not enough, it also incorporates strong Australian cultural elements, using all local plants and botanicals. The entire process focuses on an aboriginal restorative technique and creates a sacred space for healing and relaxation. Nature and nurture come together for this all-encompassing journey towards rejuvenation of the body, mind and spirit.
The level of bliss attained at The Darling Spa is hard to describe. All we can say is that after one trip, a happier, lighter, and glowing version of you, will be walking out those doors, reset and recharged, ready to take on the world. So what are you waiting for?
