Couple's Spa Day: Why It's the Perfect Way to Start the New Year

Whatever the occasion; Christmas, Birthday, Anniversary, celebrations or just because, you and your chosen one can enjoy a luxurious experience at our hotel day spa.

If you’ve never tried a couple’s massage or spa day you’re missing out on an intimate and rewarding experience. Offering a range of boutique couple’s spa experiences, you can enjoy a memorable day with your partner, friend or family member. From our 60-minute Elemis Anti-Aging Facial, which is perfect for Mother and Daughter days, to our very popular Botanical Romance journeys for couples – we have a range of couple’s spa experiences to suit any occasion and duo. 


Located in Melbourne city centre, Botanica Day Spa is a favourite location for romantic getaways. Our luxurious day spa is situated within the Intercontinental the Rialto hotel, in the Manhattan district of the CBD. Luxurious amenities, beautiful accommodation and countless bars, restaurants and activities all within easy walking distance make us the perfect day spa to indulge you and your other half on a weekend getaway. Valentines Day and Anniversary’s are a great excuse to enjoy a different kind of experience and give a gift that relaxes both of you and encourages deeper bonding.

But, what can you expect when you visit us for couple’s spa day?

Our most popular duet treatment is our Couple’s Massage, where you and your partner enjoy a massage at the same time, within the same room, with different therapists. We even offer massage treatments for expecting parents, with a tailored pregnancy massage for her and deep tissue or relaxation massage for her partner.

Engaging in a couple’s massage session allows for deeper relaxation, with both parties equally enjoying the experience. Offering a high degree of intimacy, couples massage sessions are perfect for new couples wanting to form a deeper bond, as well as mature couples wanting to reconnect with each other and disconnect from their normal routine.

As mentioned, a couple’s spa day isn’t exclusively for intimate couples, but is perfect for any duo wanting to indulge and unwind together. Our couple’s facial packages are an ideal gift for Mum or your Mother-in-law on their Birthday, providing a luxurious environment for the two of you to bond in and providing her the pampering she deserves. Sisters and best friends also opt for our couple’s spa journeys, opting to use the beauty session as a time to reconnect with each other and catch up on the latest news.

You can also tailor a couple’s spa journey to suit your needs. Our expert therapists are happy to work with you to put together a custom package your partner will love.

The Do’s

  • Do arrive early; rushing to a treatment increases stress levels throughout the session.

  • Do choose a treatment session that works for you and your partner, not just your first preference.

  • Do ensure you and your partner are on the same page, you don’t want them talking all the way through your deep tissue massage!

  • Do try to focus on your own treatment and not worry about your partner, as this can detract from the enjoyment for both of you.

The Don’ts

  • Don’t forget to add-on a glass of Brut for special occasions!

 Enjoy a luxurious and memorable experience with your loved one and contact us to arrange a couple’s spa day in 2019.
