Planning a Sydney getaway? Need an excuse for a trip to the Harbour City? How's chasing bliss at a new two-storey spa overlooking Darling Harbour for motivation?

In January 2023, global hotel chain Sofitel will unveil a new addition to its Darling Harbour site: Sofitel Spa, which is being billed as a holistic retreat in the heart of the city. Overlooking the water and featuring an array of wellness treatments and spa facilities, it will join Sydney's existing impressive supply of luxe spa experiences.

The spa will feature seven spacious treatment rooms, including two serene suites with soft timbers, alongside sandstone and marble finishes. Other elements include an infrared sauna, a meditation zone and relaxation deck that will sit on level four of the hotel.

The spa will sit alongside the hotel's previously opened level-four infinity pool. The pool is heated year-round and offers guests the ability to enjoy a dip while soaking in panoramic views of Darling Harbour and the Sydney CBD skyline.

"We have designed our new day spa to nurture and empower guests in their wellness journey, assisting them in identifying their needs and gently guiding them in accomplishing their own goals, whether that relates to fitness, stillness of the mind, replenishment with nutrition or achieving glowing skin," Director of Spa and Wellness Cecilia Ferreyra says. "Our aim is to create bespoke journeys for each of our guests which means all treatments are tailor-made, so guests walk out feeling the full benefits of being in our care."

Traditional treatments like massages, facials, body wraps and exfoliation will all be available alongside more holistic half-day experiences that combine exercise, healthy eating, a variety of treatments and introspection.

French beauty brand Biologique Recherche and fast-rising Australian company Waterlily have been enlisted to provide the spa with its cosmetic treatment products, each of which will be personalised to any one guest's needs.

Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour is located at 12 Darling Drive, Sydney. Sofitel Spa is set to open at the hotel in January 2023.
