Revitalise and Refresh Your Year at The Darling Spa

With a new year often comes new goals and resolutions, so it’s important to hit the reset button and take some time to revitalise and recharge. Here are a few ways lifestyle influencer, Natalie Lucas from From Luxe With Love is starting the year off on the right foot.

Getting in more relaxation is definitely something I want to do more of this year, and I’m sure I’m not alone. It’s hard to imagine a better way to unwind and refresh than at The Darling Spa at The Star Sydney.

One of the oldest spas in Sydney, The Darling Spa oozes luxury. It’s the perfect destination to unwind, either solo or with a loved one, and you’ll leave feeling refresh and restored. The Darling Spa has just released a new range of luxurious treatments, so it’s the perfect time to book yourself into a luxurious facial or relaxing massage. I booked in for a 90-minute Kodo Relaxation Massage to balance and align energy flow. It was heavenly!

After your treatment, relax in the Zen Lounge, or enjoy a soothing tea and snack in the Tea Room. When you book a treatment at The Darling Spa, you’re also able to use the steam room, Jacuzzi and heated Moroccan Hammam chamber. There’s an outdoor swimming pool on Level 5 of The Darling Hotel that spa guests are able to use as well.

Schedule time for yourself

Blocking out some time for yourself during your week to relax is definitely something that can get overlooked, but it’s so important so that you can recharge. A quick weekend getaway at The Darling was the perfect way to reset and spend some quality time with my partner (or if your single, consider booking a solo staycation or staying with a friend).

I stayed in one Adored Suites, and I couldn’t recommend it more – it was the perfect room to unwind in! Gorgeous views of Sydney can be seen all around the room from floor-to-ceiling windows. It also has a beautiful circular spa bath that’s situated in front of a window, so you can take a relaxing bath with a view.

A little sleep in and breakfast in bed is quite possibly the perfect start to the day! We woke up to some stunning views of Sydney, and then ordered a delicious breakfast spread from the room service menu. If you feel like heading out, you can also enjoy breakfast just downstairs at Sokyo which has a great breakfast menu too.

If you’re wanting to start the new year off feeling refreshed and revitalised, consider a weekend getaway at The Darling, Sydney’s only Forbes five-star rated hotel. It was the perfect way to start off the new year!
