What’s not to like about a spa that offers an experience tailored to make you feel like James Bond? The SpaQ ‘Mr Bond’ includes a proper shave, eyebrow and beard taming (if needed), an eye and hydration treatment, and a massage; lucky gents would indeed feel like taking on the world after that. But while you’re at SpaQ, the world will be the last thing on your mind. Little things like ‘reality’ fade away as the relaxing, decadent treatments take hold.
The serene surrounds don’t hurt either. Found at the boutique hotel, QT Sydney, SpaQ has a sleek, slightly quirky vibe. And it’s got an on-site barber shop as well, should any gentleman have the urge to recline in an antique leather barber chair, with a glass of Chivas Regal (neat) in hand, and have a haircut during their visit.
SpaQ also offers the full roster of scrubs and massages, facials and wraps that you might expect from a high-end spa. There are ones that will purify, nourish and firm. Others that will deep clean and detox. More still that will have you feeling relaxed in every, now-sparkly, soft inch of you. The hammam-inspired treatments are a particular highlight, with eucalyptus oil and thermal mineral salt crystal scrubs, steams and massages on offer.
