Endota Spa Review
Updated: Jun 23, 2019
Since I am still patiently waiting on the lavish push present that I was promised immediately after giving birth (ahem, Anthony), for Mother’s Day this year I requested some kind of long, luxurious spa treatment. I was delivered the goods and was ridiculously happy with the resulting gift - a voucher for a TWO HOUR LONG scrub, massage & facial combo thing at Endota Spa. Having never really indulged in a spa treatment before, I was beyond excited. Especially because I’ve been feeling pretty run-down and exhausted lately due to Chloe suddenly deciding that she now needs to be fed twice during the night (what happened to the baby who was sleeping nine hours straight every night?!).
The day of my treatment finally rolled around and I trotted off to be pampered. It felt very odd getting into the car without having to first strap the baby into her car seat. I kept thinking I’d forgotten something while I was driving there. Anyway, I arrived at Endota Spa and the universe was looking after me that day because I got a parking spot right out the front (which is unheard of on one of the main streets in Cronulla) and I skipped into the salon ON TIME (anyone who knows me well, knows that this is a VERY rare occurrence)!
I announced my arrival to the girl at the front desk and she offered me a cup of tea and handed me an iPad so I could let them know my massage preferences/ problem areas/ skin type etc. Sitting in that waiting room alone with a cup of tea honestly felt like a spa treatment in itself. I couldn’t remember the last time I had sat down without an over excited baby climbing up my hair. Also, these days, by the time I get around to drinking my tea it is usually lukewarm. So this was bliss. I’m easy to please.
Once I’d filled out the form and had my drink, I was showed into a delicious smelling room with two perfectly made beds and a huge shower. The therapist instructed me to get changed and I lay down as she started to scrub away all my worries and dead skin cells. Who knew that being exfoliated could feel so luxurious? Even when the scrub kinda hurt, it was still good. Actually, I think I was just enjoying all the attention… even if I did have to pay for it. After my skin was thoroughly polished, I jumped into a hot shower to rinse off. I think I stayed in there for about 15 minutes. Usually I have very hasty showers while Chloe is in the bath next to me, as there’s about a four minute window that she will happily play with her bath toys before she starts screaming at me for more entertainment.
Once I was rinsed, I lay back down for my massage. It was delightful. I think it was anyway. I was actually drifting in and out of consciousness for most of it, but that’s a good sign, right? The therapist gave me a solid 15 minute scalp massage too, which was heaven. Then came the facial. It was THE BEST THING EVER! I never realised that I like when people play with my face, but it’s awesome. She removed my mascara, cleansed my face, applied a hydrating mask and then smoothed a serum over my skin. Needless to say, by the time it was over, I felt pretty relaxed and clear in the head and floated right out of the salon.
All in all, I would definitely recommend the two-hour Rejuvenate Package at Endota Spa for a Mother’s Day (or birthday/ Christmas/ anniversary) gift. The place was clean and calm, the ladies working there were lovely and the tea was delicious and hot. I also really liked that the therapist didn’t push too many products on me afterwards either, as I find it really awkward having to tell them that I’m never going to buy anything. I will be requesting another voucher next Mother’s Day.
