What could be more relaxing than sitting poolside, overlooking manicured gardens, and watching the rain sprinkle softly across the water. This is how my Saturday was spent, rose tea in hand, as I was introduced to the newly opened One Wybelenna

Located on the outskirts of Brisbane in Brookfield, this secluded luxury day spa is a must visit to ease away pre-wedding tension, celebrate with your bridesmaids or indulge in a little couples therapy (of the good kind!).


I was greeted by the Director, Heather Sartain, who redeveloped the property that One Wybelenna is situated on. Award-winning and architecturally beautiful, it boasts multiple private sitting areas, an outdoor magnesium spa and infinity edge pool, lush gardens and spacious treatment rooms.


Already feeling more relaxed than when I first entered, I was shown through to my treatment room which had views of the expansive property. Off to the side sat the bathroom containing a large tub for soaking and an enormous walk-in dressing room. It was impressive to see the attention to detail – from a jewellery dish through to different sized slippers and your choice of disposable underwear – it was obvious that great care had been taken to consider every client’s need.


After a foot soak and friendly conversation with one of the staff (who counted herself lucky to be working in such a restive environment), I was treated to a blissful relaxation massage. It is possible that this mumma began to nod off into dreamland, such was the soothing pressure on my achy muscles.


However, if massage is not your first preference, there is a plethora of alternative therapies for the body, face, hands and feet. You could try a Multi Vitamin Detox Facial before your big day, join your girlfriends in a Gem Foot Therapy, or indulge in a Deluxe Chocolate Scrub with your beloved. For the modern day groom there is a Men’s Collection too. One Wybelenna also offers waxing, grooming and make up artistry, in addition to half day or full day pamper packages.

My only regret? Not jumping in the outdoor magnesium spa despite the rainy weather! Next time…
