Bells Spa at Bells at Killcare, Killcare

You’ve most likely heard of this Hamptons inspired boutique hotel with its lauded restaurant, but did you know it’s also home to an intimate indigenous inspired day spa? Drawing on neighbouring Bouddi National Park, all treatments use Australian products and begin with a smoking ceremony using wild-harvested native flora. Opt for the Bouddi signature massage through to an indigenous clay earth and ocean dreaming ritual. Leave with a spring in your step or float back to one of the 25 chic guest rooms.
