When you're on holiday in Adelaide and you just want to completely chill out, head to a day spa. A day spa is a wonderful place to pamper yourself, relax and feel rejuvenated. Adelaide has some wonderful options – here are some of the best day spas in the city:
Endota Day Spa
Found on Rundle Street in Adelaide, this day spa has seven spacious rooms where you can get a range of treatments. There are even two couples rooms where you can have a unique experience with your loved one.
The facials are said to be amongst the best in all of the city. Facial therapists are experienced with Dermalogica, which includes face mapping and skin analysis so you can get a facial that's personalised, and endota organic, which is made with native Australian ingredients and is said to be very nourishing.
If you want something more extensive, the ready-made spa packages incorporate a variety of wonderful treatments and services. The be-all-and-end-all takes four hours and includes body exfoliation, a yoghurt cocoon or hot oil wrap, a full body massage and a facial and pedicure. Are you taking a break before you welcome a baby into your family? Get the pregnancy massage or pregnancy pick-me-up package.
Aquavit Spa and Wellness
Aquavit is motivated by the belief that everyone should take time for themselves, and that pampering spa treatments can boost the health of the body and mind.
The treatments here are designed to take you on a sensory journey. There are relaxation, hot stone and pregnancy massages, aroma therapy and high performance facials, pedicure and manicures, and infared sauna, hydrotherapy treatments and a geisha soak tub.
Book yourself a spa package to get a taste of all of the above. These packages have been especially designed for pure bliss, and take care of your entire body. The Body Blitz is the most popular choice. You'll start out the day with herbal tea and nuts to ease you into the treatments. The aromatherapy salt body scrub is the first one, and is invigorating, leaving your skin positively glowing. Following this, you'll have a body wrap and geisha tub treatment. Feel calm and serene soaking in the spa ambiance and fragrant waters. The final aspect of this package is a relaxing massage, which will increase your circulation and ease tension.

With a bohemian touch, the spa is relaxing and welcoming, the perfect place to return to your best. There are single or double candlelit treatment rooms, as well as a vichy shower room and intimate candlelit hydrotherapy bath.
