Crown Day Spa
Exciting day of pampering yesterday at one of Melbourne’s most luxurious day spa destinations, Crown Spa. This was a first time visit for us and it did not disappoint. I have only recently discovered the wonders of a good day spa and slowly I am navigating through the different treatments and also ancillary services on offer (i.e. pools, saunas, hammams etc.)
On this occasion your indulgence all begins when you drive up to Crown Towers and valet park your car (valet is free with every treatment of an hour or more). I don’t know about you, but I got hooked on valet parking in Los Angeles and only wish we do it more often here in Melbourne and at the same price!
Next you head to the elevators and catch it up to the third floor. It’s a bit of a walk from the elevator through to the secret spa entrance, but persevere as it is worth it.
We booked the 60 minute Couples Relaxation Massage this time, which was in a private couples room and was absolutely relaxing (in fact I almost nodded off a couple of times).
However the real gem with this destination is that you are able to avail yourself of the other amenities of the Spa for the day. This includes access to lockers and changing area, lounge and showers stocked with Molton Brown shower products. Perhaps the best part is the full access to the Crown Towers luxurious indoor pool and the Spa Aqua retreat, complete with Hammam and Vitality Pool. This is where your $155/hour massage pays for itself. Our 60 minute treatment turned into 5 hours relaxation, and we didn’t even need to travel far to get there.
Service was excellent with helpful staff on hand to assist to your every request.
This destination is a must try for a complete day of pampering – take a book and relax!
