A part of my job that I truly love is writing about places & products that I believe in and that have the stamp of Image approval all over them. I love reviewing and see all the amazing places and products on offer that help our image.
One such place is Soul Skin & Spa located a short but beautiful drive just fifteen minutes outside of Noosa. It’s a tranquil place to relax, revive and renew spirit, soul and body. A beautiful world of beauty, health and healing, it had me at hello in its glorious bush land setting nestled near Lake Weyba.
Owner Jenny Leis-Taylor also offers bridal & baby showers, birthdays, Christmas & other parties to her repertoire. Participants pay just $120 per head that includes a treatment from her list of offerings and the use of the infrared sauna, the spa and the lovely pool and surroundings. Making for a unique and gorgeous gathering place. You can also BYO & nibbles or arrange catering through Soul Skin Spas. All in all making for a lovely experience of bliss.
One of the things that sets here apart is the specialized spa treatments that embrace a new level of wellness with a holistic approach to beauty using organic skincare with personalized natural remedies of Australian wildflowers, aromatherapy oils and Ayurvedic treatments. You will feel healed from the inside out, balanced and with a renewed, youthful vitality.
I was treated to the Signature Soul & Skin Spa treatment that exceeded my expectations that were high as soon as I stepped foot on this beautiful haven. It last 100 minutes and included a facial, back, shoulder, foot, hand and scalp massage and an energy healing chakra balance. It was without a doubt one of the best 100minutes of my life. Divine! While there are many treatments to choose from here I highly recommend this one, it was everything I expected and so much more. I literally left this heavenly spot feeling like a brand new woman.

Next I was off to a surprise find called Mia Bella Beauty in the Kawana Shopping World (yes you read right!), a spa in a mall. I was eager to see just what I’d find there and completely loved my experience at this lovely spa. And for those of you who love convenience this ones definitely for you. Kerry and her lovely staff are well educated and all so professional. From the time I walked in until the time I left I knew I was in very good hands.
They say they are focused on providing high quality service and customer satisfaction and will do anything they can to meet your expectation. And they do just what they say. A visit here is a wonderful experience filled with professionalism and care for the outcome.
Mia Bella Beauty offer many outstanding treatments including eyebrow shaping and tints, spray tans, eyebrow feathering, waxing (female and male), mani & pedi’s, facials (express and classic), skin tightening, massage, micro dermabrasion, peels and photo rejuvenation. This lovely salon has just about everything for everybody and is a wonderful addition to a holiday visit or it becoming your favourite local beauty hangout.
Kerry chose a customized High Performance Facial for me that was 45minutes of results driven bliss. At only $99 it is geared to leave the face and neck supremely restored and rejuvenated. Sonopherisis and cold therapy are used in this advanced and customized facial to help eliminate dehydration, acne, sensitivity and ageing. My skin after it felt dramatically improved and with their product of choice (Dermalogica) the results are nothing less than extraordinary for such little time investment. An added bonus to this facial is that my therapist used a small handheld tool to infuse the product deeper into the skin with this ultrasound technology providing a very state of the art experience while providing extra beneficial results.

Some might say I saved the best until last. Ikatan is certainly a favorite amongst locals and returning visitors from all over the world. Voted 4 times Bets Destination Spa in Australia and listed by Trip Advisor as one of the best things to do in Noosa. And that is an amazing credit as there are plenty of glorious things to do in me beloved home. It is often referred to as the Best Spa on the Sunshene Coast and you won’t hear me talk against that.
Ikatan is the only luxury spa on the coast that offers an authentic Asian Spa experience with traditional Balinese massage and body treatments along with glorious facials and has a heavenly garden area for feet, hand and head treatments where you can sip on herbal tea while watching the world float by. You can even arrange through one of the lovely staff members to have food and drink included in your stay. The Ikatan gardens are worth a visit just to see them. I enjoyed ginger tea as I wasn’t in a rush to go anywhere after my superb treatment.
Owner Katrina Thorpe and her wonderful staff help you step into a world far, far away with ease and delight as you drift into a state of complete relaxation and new beginnings. I was given the Balinese massage that included 90 minutes of pure luxury and pleasure. It combines a blend of long flowing strokes and stretching by the therapist with aroma oil with massage to release the mind and relax the body. I had an anti-angeing oil added to my massage that complimented my heavenly experience. I can honestyl say I didn’t want it to end. It was so beautiful and you truly felt with every stroke of massage you were being restored spirit, soul and body.
A visit to Ikatan is everything you can imagine and more and still it has to be my personal favourite with my next visit already being planned. It is a must. No other words needed. For all treatment details and to make a booking ikatan.com.au you can thank me later!
