Endota Crows Nest
If you are looking for a little pampering, look no further than the Endota Day Spa in Crows Nest. Launched just 8 weeks ago, (not that you would ever know it), right on busy Willoughby Road is where you will find the latest addition to the Endota family. Don’t let that busy street fool you, nestled away is a pure piece of heaven on the bustling north shore.
From the moment you enter the Endota spa’s you realise these people know the winning formula for impressing us chicks. There are almost 60 Endota Spas spread far and wide over Australia now. At Endota Crows Nest, the staff are really friendly, the day spa is quiet, clean and smells like essential oils plus the relaxing room for before and after your treatments is complete with herbal tea, and products to try which is great for extending the experience or in my case dragging it out that little bit longer before having to go back out into the real world. I was treated to the “Hot Stone Massage” hot rock massage where to start with my feet were treated to a billabong footbath whilst the souls of my feet were soothed and massaged, (I was practically purring like a cat even at that stage) then I was told I was to be “macadamia buttered up” whilst I basked in a hot rock and macadamia oil massage. Sounds good to me!
Apparently, the hot rocks warm and relax your muscles whilst the macadamia oil makes for skin as soft as silk. Oh yea baby! Add to the super talented hands of my new BFF, Camille a French import that Endota should keep forever on staff as she delivers one of the best massages I have ever had the pleasure of having. Beware the rocks are a little hot but rest assured they are not too hot that they burn or leave a mark on your skin, just hot to touch which quickly transforms into a deep warmth that is hard to describe but wonderful for my tired muscles from sitting at a desk for hours on end.
The 1 and a half hours of pure escapism costs $150 but don’t limit yourself just to the Hot Rock treatment, as some of the others I am dying to try are, “Rapt Endota” which begins with a billabong footbath, then you step into a dry body brush to buff away dead skin cells for cleansed, sparkling skin then a west australian clay cocoon detoxifies the body and serenades rough skin, leaving it smooth. Then absorb a healing 20 minute organic facial as the clay works wonders. Then finish with skin-succulent lilly pilly all-body moisturising which all takes 1 and quarter hours at a cost of $125. Or if your man is stressed out treat him to the “Bloke Got Back” which is a back deep cleanse, exfoliation, mask plus massage to detoxify and relieve muscular tension all for an hour and only $95, you don’t have to do a thing!
