Beauticate’s Glowing Review of Stephanies Vintage Spa

When Founder of Beauticate Sigourney Cantelo contacted Stephanies we got a little excited for a few big reasons. 1. Beauticate website is deliciously stylish.  2. Sigourney has worked as a Beauty journalist for over 15 years, has Beauty & Health Director at Vogue Australia on her resume as well as being awarded six Star Beauty Awards and five Jasmine Awards. With pride we share Beauticate’s review about our Vintage inspired day spa located 200 Middle Street, Cleveland.


Stephanies Vintage Spa

Situated in a timeless and charming Victorian cottage in Cleveland, a short 30-minute drive from Brisbane, is Stephanie’s Vintage Spa. This is not your average beauty destination. With eight suites, a guest lounge and an enchanting entrance, the heritage home, which was originally built in 1852, has been restored with love, thought and purpose. Beauticater, Elyse Goyan, experienced the hidden utopian spa’s Stephanie’s Signature Skin Treatment for herself.

Having frequented Stephanie’s Urban Spa and Spa Retreat, I had an idea of what to expect from this renowned Queensland brand; but when I arrived at Stephanie’s Vintage Day Spa I couldn’t have anticipated the calm that instantly washed over me. From the minute you’re greeted by the lovely Heather at reception to the fluffy almond coloured robe that softly comforts like a childhood toy – every detail of this spa is considered.

My therapist, Stacey made me feel right at home, offering me rose water in a quaint Turkish glass while she shared the history of the spa with me. Each room has its own unique design and a distinctive ambience to suit your treatment. With a scattering of candles throwing off a soft light and the scent of lavender wafting through the air, it’s the perfect environment for one of Stephanie’s soul-pleasing signature treatments.

I am booked in for Stephanie’s Signature Treatment – 100 minutes of pure bliss with a rose petal foot exfoliation, heated stone massage and Stephanie’s classic facial. From the moment my toes touch the warm petal-infused liquid, I feel rejuvenated. The little things make the biggest difference: from the way the heated stones are placed on my back, to the orange, lavender and ylang-ylang oil used to soothe my tense shoulders. I drift into a euphoric state, despite my best efforts to stay awake and note every detail of the experience for this review.

Following the incredibly relaxing massage, I’m treated to an invigorating facial. In my sleepy post massage haze, I count a total of 10 botanic PAYOT products applied to cleanse, lift, and plump my skin. From the aromatic silky cranberry and milk cleanser to the refreshing anti-fatigue collagen mask, I leave sporting an extremely healthy glow – sans under-eye bags care of my new must have product, Techni Regard.

Beyond the serene setting and exceptional treatments, Stephanie has developed a collection of beautiful products including a Lapis Body Crème and Macadamia Exfoliator which I trial before I wander through the lush grounds on my way to the guest lounge. Once ensconced there, I enjoy a cup of soothing herbal tea.

Stephanie’s philosophy is to “embrace new technologies, respect ancient rituals, step away from the ordinary and create breathtaking treatments,” and the Vintage Spa certainly delivers on this sentiment, with one of the most magnificent spa treatments I’ve had to date. I depart feeling still and, despite heading straight back to the hustle and bustle of every day life, I drive home feeling peaceful in complete silence.
