Girly luxury

Friday, July 2, 2004
For the ultimate in luxury and pampering, we have put together the perfect package. Starting with a treatment, flying to a gourmet restaurant, then a massage at a day spa and ending with a glass of bubbly in a room with a view!

The Cottage Point Inn

In this award winning restaurant you can relax on a wide water’s edge deck with unbroken views across the open reaches of Cowan Creek.

Seaplanes slip in, yachts moor, a ferry drops diners, and souffles wobble past - is this Sydney’s most serene restaurant address.

Flights depart from the historic Seaplane Base in Rose Bay, the site of the first international airport in Australia.

Seaplane Safaris offer scenic flights over Sydney Harbour, Bondi Beach and the Northern Beaches and romantic flight and lunch packages to unique and award winning restaurants.

Spa Chakra

Spa Chakra is undoubtedly Australia’s premier day spa and is renowned for its five star delivery of therapeutic and healing treatments. Everything about this place spells luxury from the complimentary valet parking, to the slick location at the W Wharf, to the star treatment you receive, to the extensive range of services including everything from facials to spiritual counselling.

Part of the Chakra Alliance, Spa Chakra prides itself on designing, developing and delivering complete holistic beauty, health and wellness services to the most discerning clientele. Their extensive range of services was created after benchmarking those offered by leading Resort, Hotel and Day Spas around the world.

It is what can be described as a next generation Medi-Spa. ISPA (International SPA Association) uses this term to describe ‘spas which provide comprehensive medical and wellness care in an environment which integrates spa services, as well as conventional and complementary therapies and treatments.

When you arrive you complete a Self-assessment Questionnaire to discover the personal health and lifestyle issues that might stop you from achieving true wellness. These are: nutritional and chemical; electromagnetic; mental, spiritual and emotional; and physical and structural.

Chakra Health Programs are designed to incorporate the age-old wisdom of balancing mind, body and spirit, with the best that Western medicine has to offer.

If the Spa Chakra treatments and philosophy don’t already spell “five-star” the Chakra Concierge certainly will.

Spa Chakra has its very own Chakra Concierge which was created to turn every busy person's dream into reality. The scope of this professionally coordinated domestic management service goes beyond that of other providers and the standard always exceeds the clients’ expectations.
