The Day Spa

Jindii Eco Spa

Deep Fried Leanne after a cocoon body wrap at Jindii EcoSpa

Last year while I was sailing the Caribbean on a yacht (that sounds so posh! ...  Sorry ... distracted by my poshness. Let's start again ...)

Last year as I was sailing the Caribbean on a yacht, my son's soccer team had their presentation night.  Of course we missed it, but I was delighted to have been given a pretty hefty gift voucher for a day spa by the parents to thank me for my work as team manager.



When we returned home I had my Festival of Fifty celebration which meant receiving a whole lot more gift vouchers.  Sadly my day spa reward went into a pile of things I would do one of these days.

Fast forward to Christmas and us buying a house and not having any money, and I gave half of that gift voucher to my Mum.  I guess you could call it a gift that would keep on giving.

Which put the ball in her court to arrange our day spa adventure together.

Long story short, last weekend we visited Jindii EcoSpa at the Australian National Botanic Gardens.



Inspired by the native flora found in the Botanic Gardens, Jindii EcoSpa infuses locally sourced botanical ingredients to help people feel revitalised, recharged and replenished.

From the moment you walk in the door you can feel this place is not your typical run of the mill day spa.  Jindii offers a connection with nature in a beautifully styled haven created with peace and mindfulness in mind.



Mum booked us in for the Bindi Bindi Cocoon Wrap.  I had no idea what this meant but I figured it would require we get naked and I wasn't sure that was ideal for a couple of Deep Fried ladies like us. No matter how posh.  While I do love our mother/daughter bonding outings, I don't really feel the need for us to nude up in front of each other.

But rest assured there was no need for mother/daughter nakedness. Each of us had a therapist who took us to our own individual and very private suites where we started with a fully clothed foot bath and herbal tea before being given space, dignity and plenty of towels to undress for an all over body scrub using lemon myrtle body polish. This transitioned into body paint with warm mud to detoxify and revitalise the skin.

After being wrapped in a cocoon of warm blankets and as native leaves burned fragrantly,  we were given a facial before showering in our private suites to then be yet again polished and oiled in complete and utter serenity and relaxation. All the while being reminded to breathe and release the built up tensions the world can throw at us.

The treatment lasted around 2 hours from the moment we walked in the door to the moment we exited, and as we sat on a couch in one of many waiting areas, we marvelled at the value for money our experience was.  This could well become a Deep Fried ritual for this mother/daughter duo. In fact, it may be time to bring little-miss-soon-to-be-21 into the fold.

We can honestly say this is the best day spa experience we've ever had (and we've shared quite a few).


 If you are in Canberra and would like to treat yourself, then Mum and I both thoroughly recommend Jindii EcoSpa in the heart of the Australian National Botanic Gardens.

When was the last time you treated yourself to a Day Spa?
