Sometimes life just gets a little overwhelming and we all need a bit of time out every once and a while. What better way to do that than indulging in a day spa package or retreat with your loved one or a group of galfriends. The hubby and I wanted to squeeze in one last R + R together and we chose to do this at One Wybelenna.

One Wybelenna is Brisbane's newest exclusive Holistic Health and Wellness Sanctuary located in Brookefield.

OW was initially constructed as a family home that has now been transformed into a wellness retreat when Owner Heather Sartain had a vision come to light whilst standing in the kitchen of her then family home, this visualisation has now come to life. As soon as you drive into the entrance of this architecturally designed contemporary home, your spirits are immediately lifted just by the initial tranquility that the exterior of the property exudes.

We arrived at 2pm where we were greeted and welcomed by Heather Sartain, Director of One Wybelenna; and seated in the hub of the wellness retreat nestled between the hinterland overlooking the incredible magnesium spa and pool. We were offered a selection of herbal tea's or sparkling water with fresh lime while we filled out our health and wellbeing consultation forms and then started our experience with exclusive use of the outdoor magnesium spa. The spa is always exclusively booked out so that there are no other guests hopping in and out whilst you're trying to relax and enjoy. The magnesium spa is maintained at a balmy 38 degrees and is very relaxing to the mind and body, assisting in the recovery of tired muscles. This was perfectly suited to Darius being an athlete as his muscles and joints are generally sore throughout the season and for myself being 36 weeks pregnant at the time to aid those nasty pregnancy cramps and aches.

At round 3pm we then moved into the couples room for our 3 hour package where we started off with a Collagen Foot soak and pedicure. An Aromatic Sea full body exfoliation followed which is high in algae and Dead Sea salts, this stimulating exfoliator remineralises and increases blood circulation and detoxification.

The thing I love about One Wybelenna is that they cater for men specifically in tailoring product use for their treatments. Darius received a tension release massage with the use of their mens selection of aromatic essential oils, while I enjoyed their specialised pregnancy massage with the use of the Subtle Enegries 2nd + 3rd Trimester oil blend. All of their massages are performed using the Subtle Energies range to suit your skin and body type and all of the therapists at OW have received extra training by a professional pregnancy massage specialist.

We then finished off with our facial treatments both using Germaine de Capuccini's incredible skin care range. Darius received the 'Amor For Men’ facial. Rich in Vitamin C, eliminates toxins and enhances skin luminosity, fighting wrinkles, skin fatigue, and the symptoms of premature ageing. Whilst I received a One Wybelenna Custom facial being tailored to suit pregnancy as there are certain products that cannot be used on my skin during this time of hormonal change.

One Wybelenna, is a must! Whether you are wanting to get away for some time alone, with a loved one or with some friends. Or if you're looking for a special gift for an anniversary or any occasion be sure to contact the team at OW as bookings are by appointment only. I have no doubt you will enjoy your experience as much as we did!

I cannot wait to head back after I've given birth to try their signature 'Better than Botox Facial'.
