“Book me in again! ”

Aurora Spa Retreat @ Palazzo Versace
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 February 2017 via mobile

I received a Signature Kitya Karnu body treatment from my partner to celebrate our anniversary - it was divine... as soon as I stepped into Aurora Spa I was in heaven.

The therapist who looked after me for my treatment was so caring and I felt such a positive vibe from her that it was just so easy to relax. After, I was treated to a beautiful blend of herbal tea. My skin was left feeling smooth and hydrated and my hair had never felt so silky soft.

I've now left a spa menu sitting around the house for my partner as a reminder for future presents ;) I'll definitely be back again!

I received a massage treatment at Aurora Spa as a Christmas present from my family, and I absolutely loved the experience! My 90 minute massage was bliss and the masseuse was fantastic - over my time I've visited a number of spas back in Sydney and previously in Melbourne - and I rate this massage as being one of the best. The staff were professional whilst also being very warm and friendly, and by the end of my treatment (which included a glass of bubbly and a platter of fruit) I felt like a goddess. Would definitely recommend Aurora Spa to family and friends!

As a long time guest of the hotel and spa, I cannot recommend this place enough when in need of some 'me time'. I book a massage every time I am on the Gold Coast - the treatments are amazing and I really enjoy the high quality (Australian made) products which I now buy online and take on my travels. My hubby loves the thermal muscle balm. We can't wait to be back next month for a couples massage!

I enjoyed the aquatic facial and foot rub. Oh yeah, my therapist was wonderful, treating me to a most relaxing, hydrating and peaceful hour. She really knew what she was doing. I highly recommend.

I would like to say when I booked into this spa I had not read the reviews online. After being to this spa all the reviews I have read are exactly as how I am about to put it. Be sure to read the other sites as for some reason this site reviews are great but every other site is different.
I booked myself and my daughter in for a massage and facial package for her 21st birthday we were staying at the hotel, everything in the hotel was amazing I expected the spa to be the same.
We arrived at the spa 11am for our 1230pm treatment under the impression we could have a swim and sauna before our treatment.
Before our treatment you are to have a shower at 11am the showers were so dirty they had a build up of scum that had been there for days so dirty I didnt want to shower after my massage and didnt want to put my feet on the shower floor.
Went to go for a swim and the pool was freezing we were told it was headed by staff but when I went to the desk to mention pool heating was not turned on I was told thats part of the hotel and the hotel doest heat it anymore.
Thats fine miss communication with someone cannot remember who mentioned it, but if your thinking of swimming its warmer upstairs.
I want to say this as nice as I can by my massage and facial had no technique no consistency and no flow. I am a beauty therapist and I need to mention that the staff really need training at least in one massage thats really good and they need to do facials on each other to see what it feels like . I could not be more disappointed in paying the equivalent of 180 for a massage and feeling like I have had the worst certificate 3 level in the class. The facial was the same really no structure the only thing they seemed to be trained on is upselling products which if the facial was great yes I would of loved to try your brand. When my daughter came out I asked her how was it her response the facial was better than the massage, thats her way of saying politely because it was a surprise for her they were both terrible. We talked about it later when we got home and her experience was the same. I feel if you reed your reviews and train up your staff tips and sales will follow, leaving management,staff ,sales and clients all happy.
