Just when you thought you didn’t need more of a reason to visit one of Bannisters most iconic locations in Port Stephens, the boutique hotel group has just announced the opening of their luxury day spa, designed to rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.
An extension of the hotel’s minimalistic, coastal aesthetic courtesy of acclaimed interior designer, Romy Alwill, the spa’s interior carry inspiration from the Palm Spring vibe with five treatment rooms, three of which cater to couples and feature outdoor rain showers.
Alwill says, “With a subtle nod to the Palm Springs’s style, we wanted to create a warm and nurturing spa environment, that also feels fresh, light and uplifting. It was imperative to keep the visual connection throughout the hotel, so we incorporated curved timber battened walls, with warm materials of brass and rattan, as well as the colour palette of pink and nude tones.”
The spa menu offers an extensive range of therapeutic treatments including massages, facials, manicures and pedicures powered by the best of Australia organic skincare including Organic Spa and supermodel and entrepreneur Miranda Kerr’s, KORA Organics.
A multi detox clay facial and lactic enzyme peel are just some of the facials on offer whilst you can choose from a lymphatic drainage, hot stone or relaxation massage, just to name a few.
The hotel also boasts an infinity pool overlooking the shores of Soldier Point and offers a number of activities and adventure packages for every type of traveller, including swimming with dolphins, whale watching, camel rides, hiking, golfing, sand buggies, paragliding, yachting, kayaking, paddle-boarding, snorkelling and more.
Bit of a foodie? You can enjoy light dining options and drinks by the pool at the Terrace Bar or treat yourself to a full course meal at celebrity chef, Rick Stein’s, in-house restaurant, showcasing the finest locally sourced produce the area has to offer.
Although you can already start enjoying a limited treatment menu at Spa Bannisters, this is just a teaser with the official opening launching at the end of July.
