Designed by the creative minds at Cera Stribley, award-winning architects, Indie Spa’s space defies traditional spa norms. Embracing curves, colours, and a playful ambience, it welcomes spa-lovers of all kinds to indulge in relaxation and fun.

Located within the Sunnymead Hotel in Aireys Inlet, Indie Spa transformed what was once a dark manager’s residence into a one-of-a-kind haven. Former bedrooms now house three private treatment rooms, each customised to ensure ultimate comfort. The lounge area retains its role as a sanctuary of relaxation, now adorned with an Indie touch to add to the inviting atmosphere.

Indie Spa’s name says it all – it’s about being unique, alternative, and full of fun! Whether you arrive solo, with a partner, or with a group of friends, the team of spa hosts and therapists is ready to create a tailored experience just for you.

From classic spa therapies like facials and massages to the steamy delights of the Rasul and bathhouse experiences, Indie Spa offers something special for everyone.

If you’re after a facial, the “Indie Facial” will hit refresh on your skin with a double exfoliation and a natural face mask that will leave you looking and feeling absolutely fabulous; while the “High Performance Facial” is tailored to your skin’s unique needs, packing all the essentials like antioxidants, peptides, and minerals for a radiant complexion.

If you’re looking for relaxation, from top to toe, feel the tension melt away with the “Massage + Express Facial” combo that takes care of your back, neck, arms, legs, feet, and face! The top-to-toe experience also includes an instant glow-up express facial for the ultimate relaxation. Or, opt for the “Full Body Massage” to let your therapist work their magic on your mind and body. For the ultimate indulgence, go for the “Full Body Massage” for 90 minutes of pure bliss.

A favourite treatment is the Indie Spa’s “Eco-Mud Wrap”, that will have you wrapped up in a warm and heavenly mud, indulging in the rejuvenating benefits of a full body dry exfoliation. Their eco-friendly muds are designed to de-age, hydrate, and soothe your skin, leaving you with a beautifully nourished and hydrated glow.

Indie Spa knows how to elevate your experience with their amazing add-ons. Sip on a signature Indie Cocktail or Mocktail and unwind in the chill-out lounge after your spa treatment. Don’t miss out on their scrumptious Charcuterie or Wholesome Platter for a treat that complements your spa session perfectly. For a more personal touch, indulge in the Botanical Hair + Scalp Treatment to leave your hair hydrated and glossy from root to tip.

Indie Spa isn’t just about massages and facials; they’ve got something even steamier up their sleeve! Step into their one-of-a-kind steam room and be transported to a world of relaxation and rejuvenation. The Rasul at Indie Spa offers a cleansing and invigorating experience like no other at a comfortable temperature. The communal setting allows you to steam and socialize with your friends or fellow spa-goers. What’s more, you get to indulge in the fun of applying your own body scrubs and muds. It’s the perfect opportunity to share laughs and pamper yourself simultaneously.

You can also bathe like royalty in their luxurious stone tubs, or try out the Vichy shower and steam room, where you can enjoy applying your own body scrubs, muds and DIY hair mask.

If that wasn’t enough, Indie Spa’s commitment to the environment is as unwavering as their dedication to providing exceptional spa experiences. Their products, carefully selected to match their values, come from trusted brands like O Cosmedics and Pevonia Botanica.
