Need a break? Our picks: 4 Top City Hotel Spa retreats

Australian top 4 city hotel day spa retreats - via Ultimate Conferences & TheVenueShop.comFeeling weary, stressed & in need of a little pampering? A spa break could help you to make it through the upcoming silly season. For some valuable time on the massage table, we suggest you check out (or check into!) one of these fabulous CBD hotel retreats & chill out...

*PLUS, your chance to WIN a luxe escape! 

The Langham Sydney |  89-113 Kent St, Sydney 

Located at the leafy, quiet end of Kent St, only a hill stands between the chaos of The Rocks markets & The Langham Sydney's calm, serenity - but it’s certainly enough to lend this hotel a "far-from-the-madding-crowd" feel. After a $30-million makeover in 2014-15, delightfully intimate Langham Sydney unveiled a grand lobby lit by the sun & beautifully appointed luxury rooms.

We highly recommend you check in then take the lift straight down to the hotel’s underground Day Spa by Chuan.  Detox. Renew. Relax. Rejuvenate... at this lavish underground spa sanctuary. Exclusive German BABOR products & innovative new treatments aid in your complete indulgence & pampering.

For total relaxation, try the 90-minute Urban Release Package (a full-body exfoliation using Chaun's signature organic, hand-blended red mandarin, lime & cranberry mix, plus full body massage). Or the "Champagne & Gold" experience is the ultimate indulgence incorporating massage, Skin Lifting facial, deluxe manicure, pedicure plus light lunch with a glass of Laurent-Perrier. The spa also offers a Gentleman’s Menu, Pregnancy Pampering, or build your own options – ensuring you find the perfect way to switch off & revive, tailored just for you.

Hotel Realm, Canberra | 18 National Circuit, Barton

When it comes to cutting-edge wellness treatments, it’s hard to beat Hotel Realm’s mudd the Spa - uniting contemporary design with ancient healing traditions to enhance the well-being of your mind, body & soul. The centrepiece here is the Vichy shower - a massage bed with 7 overhead jets. This hydrotherapeutic treatment begins with a full-body exfoliation, followed by a gentle shower & mineral-balm application to cleanse, relax & rejuvenate your body in one go. mudd also offers a Body Cocoon experience, kicking-off with a pistachio-scrub exfoliation, then covering your body in a cleansing mask before moving to the Body Cocoon “capsule” to steam & gently water-massage you. Of course, there’s plenty to choose from if you'd prefer a more traditional massage, plus there’s a good selection of male-specific treatments.

Why not check into a room on Hotel Realm’s Executive (4th) floor for uninterrupted views of Parliament House as a gentle reminder, that while you may feel a world away, you’re still only a Hansard’s throw from home...

Crown Towers Melbourne | 8 Whiteman St, Southbank

With 17 treatment rooms (2 exclusively for couples) at the Crown Towers’s Crown Spa. Why not spend some time in the hammam-style steam room then follow with a full-body mud wrap to purge any toxins. Our pick of luxurious treatments is the White Caviar Illuminating Treatment – a rejuvenating 90-minute facial. PLUS, Crown Spa also has it's own hair & beauty studio.

To dial up the "luxe factor", check into a Crown Towers villa on the 30th or 31st floors – 130sqm with high-ceilings to the living room, spacious bedroom & all-marble bathroom with Salvatore Ferragamo toiletries. If this is a little beyond your reach, rest assured even the lead-in room types are quality, well-appointed with the most comfortable King Beds & a deep-soaking bath. There’s something especially calming about the city views minus the sound.

Sofitel Brisbane Hotel | 249 Turbot St, Brisbane

A 5 star city oasis of chic design where you can experience the ambient glow of burning candles, splendour of fresh flowers, lingering scents of essential oils & soothing music.

The Opal Rasul Steam Temple might be located directly above Brisbane’s Central station but the cavernous room lined with turquoise tiles could be straight out of The Arabian Nights. Part of Stephanies Spa Retreat within the Sofitel Brisbane hotel, try a Moroccan-inspired DIY body-brushing treatment with 3 different muds provided for legs, upper body & face. The idea to get seriously messy before steam pumps into the room, until nothing is visible but the star-like lights in the ceiling. Recommend you follow this body-cleansing treatment with a massage to round off the experience.

The best bit? Sofitel Brisbane offers a great range of accommodation only metres away when ready to retreat - you may like to request a suite ending with “01” on any floor, if you's prefer a corner spot with Anzac Square & city views.
