On a beautiful Thursday afternoon in Port Douglas, my partner and I arrived at Niramaya Spa & Beauty excited to experience their renowned Romance Package. Warmly greeted with a glass of refreshing water and a cool towel, we soaked up the stunning setting of the exotically beautiful Niramaya gardens.
As we relaxed into the glorious surrounds and enjoyed a cup of peppermint tea the feelings of “in a rush” dissipated immediately. We were given the time to relax, reconnect with each other and ourselves before being led to our treatment room. With a fabulous view of the lush green foliage, the subtle sounds of the rainforest filling our ears, two massage tables awaiting us, we both knew we were in for a memorable afternoon.
I glanced over at my partner to see if he was enjoying his massage. A brief and hazy smile returned. He loved the indulgence as much as I did.
Michaela and Christine, our therapists, walked us through our menu. They offered us a range of essential oils, each with a delicious aroma, and discussed any preferences we may have. It was lovely to feel that this experience was being tailored to our individual needs every step of the way.
My personal choice was a floral based oil and our focus quite simply of pure relaxation. The combination was absolutely divine, the stress from everyday life evaporated, a feeling of relaxation and tranquillity ensued, as my talented therapist worked her magic. I glanced over at my partner to see if he was enjoying his massage. A brief and hazy smile returned. He loved the indulgence as much as I did.
