6. Polished Perfect Manicure
Polished Beauty, Greenhill Road, Hazelwood Park.
A good manicure really makes you feel glamourous and ready to take on the world. Polished is a modern salon, and their signature manicure involves shaping your nails to perfection, tidying the cuticles, exfoliating, massaging, moisturizing and protecting your hands with a sunscreen product (to protect from sun damage – why have great nails and lacklustre hands?), and of course a polish in your chosen hue. All nail services include a take-home file and buffer, so you won’t leave empty handed (they’ll just be super-soft)!
7. Sweet Sensations body treatment:
Cocoon Spa and Wellness. Magill Road, St Morris.
If you want a true girly pamper day, this is the ultimate treatment. It includes a chocolate-infused aroma bath, followed by a chocolate body scrub, body wrap and a full-body massage. Your skin will be soft and smooth, and your sweet tooth will be satisfied!
8. Coconut foot Treatment
Spa on Brougham, Brougham Place, North Adelaide.
Put your best foot forward after pampering them with this exotic treatment. Your feet will be soaked in warmed coconut milk to soften the skin, before they’re exfoliated with a Pure Fiji sugar scrub. The final step (get it?) is your choice of a peach-scented warm paraffin foot bath to deeply hydrate, or a frangipani foot mask to sooth and refresh.
9. Senses Day Spa, Auricht Road, Hahndorf.
Picturesque Hahndorf is the perfect place to relax, away from the busy city. The Essential Escape treatment is lavish but totally worth it if you want to be pampered! It includes an infrared sauna sesh to invigorate and detoxify, a dip in their solar-heated lap pool followed by the soothing hydrotherapy spa, and ends with a full-body relaxation massage.
10. Body Wrap
Coco’s Hair and Day Spa, Mount Barker Road, Stirling.
A short, scenic drive from the city is Coco’s, a day spa located in leaf-lined Stirling. To truly relax, go for the soothing body wrap. Your body gets exfoliated. This leaves your skin smooth and soft. Then they soak your body in hot aromatic oils. Try not to fall asleep (if you do, you’ll leave feeling even more refreshed) because its one of the best relaxing places in Adelaide.
