ROAD TEST Found: pure relaxation

Daintree Rainforest Ritual A BLISSFUL state of relaxation was the order of the day at the Daintree Rainforest Ritual at Exclusive Spa, where I was treated to a cleansing body buff, warm clay wrap, warm rainforest waterfall before relaxing under a beautiful massage. Often in our busy lives we forget to take time out to pamper ourselves and during this Road Test, I was reminded of the rejuvenating qualities of relaxing under the expert hands of Exclusive Spa. When I entered, I was greeted by Pepper’s Spa supervisor Cathy Taylor who introduced me to the products available. After donning a soft robe, I entered the treatment room for the Daintree Rainforest Ritual, a covered outdoor area with a metal leaf-shaped bed in the centre, which was surprisingly comfortable. First off was the smoked paperbark oil massaged on to my skin, then a beautiful quandong kernel buff, exfoliating and rejuvenating my skin. Then I was covered in locally-sourced red ochre clay, before being wrapped to soak in the nutrients and draw out any impurities. While soaking, I was treated to a blue cyprus and native mint scalp treatment under hot towels, before I had the treatment washed off my body with their hot rainforest waterfall. After coming back to reality, I relocated to a soft massage table where I received a beautiful aromatic massage. It was a beautiful treatment that I would recommend; Cathy made me feel very comfortable as she scrubbed and massaged out all tension, leaving me in a blissful state of relaxation.
