Big-city life has its downsides. Wouldn’t it be nice to escape the noise and the traffic and sit back in a spa in a secluded, luxury setting, while you sip tea and consider a hot stone massage? Sounds divine, doesn’t it? But in our great city, these day-spa experiences are not so easy to find.
New York has a sea of options, including the brilliantly stuck-in-time Russian Baths. London is full of them – historic and modern. Spas are a way of life in Japan. But Sydney is downright lacking in options. While search engines provide a saturated guide to a city, you sometimes can’t trust those algorithms. So instead of googling, we did the hard work and set out to find Sydney’s best health and day spas.
