Daydream’s Rejuvenation Spa recognised as one of Australia’s best
















Daydream Island’s Rejuvenation Spa has again sealed its reputation as one of Australia’s most pampering spa experiences by winning the award for Best Hotel/Resort Spa Australasia 2013 in the Pevonia Botanica Awards.

The awards are run by leading international spa and skincare company Pevonia Botanica and acknowledge the most outstanding spas, salons, therapists and managers in Australia.

The Rejuvenation Spa was also runner up for the Hotel/Resort Spa Customer Service Excellence category of the awards.

Located at the northern end of Daydream Island in Queensland’s magnificent Whitsunday Islands, the Rejuvenation Spa is a multi-award winning facility that combines an extensive array of health and beauty treatments with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and pool to pamper and reinvigorate the mind, body and soul.

The Rejuvenation Spa provides a holistic approach to wellbeing, offering the time-tested health benefits of naturopathy, aromatherapy, hydrotherapy and massage, along with beauty therapies using products such as Pevonia Botanica and Eles Mineral Make up.

Unique to the spa is one of Australia’s most advanced naturopathic testing and treatment clinics, offering clients a complete and comprehensive analysis of entire body systems, from full blood analysis to monitoring and measuring fat and muscle mass.

“These awards are well deserved and highlight the hard work the staff of the Rejuvenation Spa put in every day,” Daydream Island Resort and Spa CEO Phil Casey said. “The spa is a world class facility unparalleled in any other Australian hotel or resort and we are delighted to be recognised in these awards.”

Daydream Island Rejuvenation Spa Manager Joanne Enslow said the spa offered a luxurious spa program tailored to guests’ every need.

“We offer the complete package for pampering and health, from hot stone therapy, a caviar facial, to computerised food allergy testing and the ever popular Vichy shower,” Ms Enslow said.

“Our aim is for guests to leave the spa feeling refreshed, relaxed and of course totally rejuvenated, and we are thrilled to be recognised as among Australia’s best. Our focus has always been on our clients’ individual needs and this award is testament to our dedication to providing only the very best tailored beauty and well-being programs.”

Spa facilities include 16 individual treatment rooms, Vichy showers, thermal tables, hydrotherapy tubs, steam effusion showers, dual treatment rooms, dual spa baths and private relaxation areas.

The spa has been recognised several times at the Pevonia Botania Awards, taking out the Resort Spa Customer Service Excellence category at last year’s awards and the Performance Excellence category in 2011.

Daydream’s new leopard rays named ‘Hansel and Gretel’


Daydream Island Resort and Spa has named the newest additions to its Living Reef – a set of brother and sister leopard rays – Hansel and Gretel.

The animals are the first leopard rays to inhabit the Living Reef, one of the world’s largest man-made living lagoons.

The rays were christened after the famous brother and sister fairytale characters after Daydream recently ran a naming competition through its Facebook page.

“Leopard rays are endangered and they are the first to inhabit our Living Reef lagoon, making them an exciting new addition to our ever-growing number of fish, rays, sharks and coral,” Daydream Living Reef Manager James Astley said.

“They are brother and sister to our knowledge, were caught in the wild together and are less than a year old.

“Like their namesake, the animals sport a striking leopard-like marking over their entire upper surface which have made them a very popular attraction with our visitors.”

The leopard ray is widespread in the Indo-Pacific region. Bottom-dwelling in nature, the animals are found close inshore over soft-bottomed habitats. The young are born at 20cm wide and can grow up to reach a width of around 140cm and length of up to four metres.

Hansel and Gretel join more than 115 species of fish and 80 coral species native to the Great Barrier Reef which can be found in the Living Reef.

The 2,650sqm Living Reef is one of the world’s largest man-made living lagoons, holds more than 1.5 million litres of water and is also home other star attractions like female black tip reef sharks Cookie and Nibble, white spot mangrove rays Bill and Barb and black shovelnose ray, Jack.

Guided by Living Reef biologists, visitors can take part in fish and shark feeding shows or programs like the Stingray Splash, where guests walk knee-deep into the Living Reef and hand-feed and pat stingrays.

Daydream Island Resort and Spa is located in Queensland’s tropical Whitsundays in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, only a 30 minute boat ride from Hamilton Island and a 30 minute ferry ride from Airlie Beach.

The award-winning resort features 296 rooms and suites, a great selection of restaurants and bars, a fringing coral reef and a Rejuvenation Spa offering a comprehensive selection of health and beauty treatments.
