We stayed at Aanuka for the week of the Melbourne Cup 2009. As we had been travelling down from the Gold Coast, my girlfriend thought it would be a good idea to try out the day spa at the resort. We both decided to go. As we had been to day spas on previous occasions we had to take a step back in time on this one!
My girlfriend had chosen a "Togetherness" package, only to be directed to seperate rooms on arrival. Nothing "Together" about that! During my paid time my masseuse interupted my massage several times to answer the phone, returning saying that "we dont normally do this but there were VIP's in the resort." How did she know that we were'nt VIP's.
In between services where guests should be relaxing, all you heard was the clanging and bashing of pots as they cleaned them. The exfoliation, well my girlfriend could've done better with one of those gloves in the shower.
If you are looking for a day spa save your money, if you are heading north to the Gold Coast, or wait till you get back home. Very UNPROFESSIONAL.
This was the only disappointing part of our stay. Aanuka is a great place to stay and we had some enjoyable dinners at the restaurant.
