Massage Skin Spa
When you need a break from all that Gold Coast shopping, surfing and sun (it happens), reset at this destination spa. Located inside the too-cool-for-school QT hotel in Surfers Paradise, this 50s-inspired spa is just delightful. Right off the bat, they make things easy: you don’t have to choose your treatment in advance, but rather, make a reservation and, when you arrive, figure out what you feel like. Genius, right? There’s a comprehensive menu featuring facials, massages, makeup and men’s grooming, and if you get there ahead of schedule, you can take advantage of the unisex hammam steam room and ice fountain (hot and cold water therapy has good health benefits). And now you’re ready to get back to the beach.
