First there was Australia’s newest luxury hotel brand, Pullman. Now Pullman has launched Australia’s newest luxury hotel spa brand, Vie Spa.

Found in five resorts across the country so far (Pullman Sea Temple Resort & Spa Port Douglas, Pullman Sea Temple Resort & Spa Palm Cove and Pullman Cairns International, all in Queensland; Pullman Resort Bunker Bay in Western Australia; and Quay West Resort Magenta Shores, New South Wales), Vie is a real crowd-pleasing kind of retreat – there is something here for everyone.

Die-hard spa-goers will love the high performance facials using Pevonia products, or for the naturalist there’s the organic iKOU, which uses Australian native products in its offerings.

But we recommend saving yourself for the ‘Vie Spa Rituals’, a menu of flagship treatments including hot stone healing, ‘foot renewals’ and our favourite, the aptly named Heavenly Therapy (basically a top-to-toe, two-hour full-body overhaul).

Then stay a while in the devoted chill-out areas, where you can sip, ah, slip back into reality with an infusion tea and sorbet, before sauntering back to your suite.
