The race that stops the nation is a good opportunity to let it stop you for some time out.

While most of Australia is preparing their race day outfit, hat and shoes, not everyone wants to go all out on Melbourne Cup day. Some people don’t agree with horse racing or gambling or want to get involved with partying for the Melbourne Cup, yet they still have the day off work.

Why spend Melbourne cup at a day spa

Some people like to take the opportunity to avoid the silly hats, outrageous heels and over inebriated people who take the Melbourne Cup horse race to another level and ikatan Day Spa near Noosa is the perfect place to escape all of the above.

It’s a great excuse to escape to a place where you’ll be lying down for pampering rather than lying down because your feet hurt from those high heels or you’ve drunk too much!

Some of the most popular treatments and packages we book on Melbourne Cup day are those shared with a friend to spend time relaxing and catch up over lunch in the gardens after treatments.

Some guests book themselves in for some time out alone with a longer package or a retreat for a day, to recharge and rejuvenate, while others book a double package making the most of the time off to spend with a loved one.

Popular Melbourne Cup escape race day packages

Melbourne Cup race day is becoming a popular day for day spas offering an alternative way to spend money on yourself. Instead of a spending on a new outfit, you get to wear very little (just one of our sarongs) and be fully pampered. Instead of overeating or getting a horrible hangover, you leave feeling good after visiting a day spa.

You may have all your makeup removed before a facial, rather than loading it on for the races, but you’ll look so much fresher after some time at a day spa and the makeup application we offer after facials is a natural ‘no makeup’ look.

Champagne, High Tea or a bite to eat

There’s still time to celebrate so why not enjoy some time out at ikatan Day Spa with a complimentary glass or two of champagne if that’s your thing? We also have a wine list or T2 herbal teas if you prefer. We even offer food including High Tea, a light lunch menu or cheese and fruit, mezze or cheese boards. Some of our food items, including High Tea, need to be booked in advance, but they all offer the perfect way to extend your relaxation time.

Melbourne Cup celebrations take place at most restaurants in Noosa from 11am to close on race day and for those who are holidaying or resting after the Noosa Triathlon it’s hard to escape the Melbourne Cup lunches and after parties.

Time out at a day spa is the perfect escape from Melbourne Cup or for Noosa Triathlon recovery. Book early so you don’t miss out. Contact ikatan Day Spa now.
