— Trip Advisor
Took my parents and sister here to celebrate my dad’s birthday. From the start, the place had an incredibly warm and friendly welcome. We were then guided into the waiting room, where we were offered Herbal Tea and water. Being a large group of 4 and given a one day booking timeframe, Sofie did her best in accommodating all of us, and working it out so we would all finish our treatments at the same time. Much appreciated.
My dad especially, enjoyed his Deep Tissue massage, which was a pleasant surprise for me - he is quite particular about massages in regards to firmness and pressure. But Botanica Day Spa did not fail to deliver. Thank you, Surinder for helping him feel so relaxed - he was so impressed, and could not stop raving about how strong you were!! And thank you to my masseuse, Megan - I haven’t felt this relaxed in a while! The head mssage was perfect.
Botanica Day Spa lived up to my expectations and I will definitely be recommending. They went above and beyond in making my family and I feel welcomed. Sofie, you were a wonderful host (and we loved the cakes). Thank you so much for a fantastic experience.

I was advised by a friend to try Botanica Day Spa. As a performance coach my body is under constant stress from training. I now have a weekly 90 minute deep tissue massage to revitalise my body and relax. Highly recommend Botanica!

Absolutely amazing. From the moment you stepped off the busy Collins street into the Intercontinental and to the day spa there was a sense of relaxation. Would highly recommend this to all.

On my last business trip to Melbourne I managed to fit in a facial and massage at Botanical Day Spa.
From the moment you walk in the door it is all about you, decor was stunning and therapist was very professional. Definitely will be back.

I have had many treatments over my years and have owned my own beauty spa and the Elemis product was my chosen product for my boutique spa, which I sold many years ago. I was visiting Melbourne for 5 days and I was very delighted to find your day spa. I couldn’t let another moment pass now that I have returned back to Brisbane to let you know what a completely incredible treatment I received. The care and treatment inside the room and outside of the room were 2nd to none and I will definitely be back again on my next visit to Melbourne. Thank you.

I would like to say a big thank you to you and your team for pampering my parents on their anniversary weekend last Sunday. I really do appreciate you writing up the gift card, boxing it so nicely and delivering it much to their surprise. They have not stopped talking about how lovely the staff were and how amazing the massage was. I appreciate your help pulling this all together and we will definitely be returning next time we are in town. Thank you again.

— Amy, Victoria
Wow stepping out of the hustle and bustle of Collins St and into the majestic foyer of the Intercontinental Hotel was just the beginning of our beautiful afternoon. What an amazing place. The Botanica day spa is set up so well, you feel as though you are the only people in the spa. Time stands still as you leave the cares of the world behind you.
The staff are gorgeous. They ooze professionalism and confidence. The body scrub and body melt massage was to die for. I was so relaxed that I almost fell asleep. We were very impressed and left the spa feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and feeling very special. Will definitely be back and make it a ritual start to any stay in Melbourne. Thank you to Sofie and your lovely staff.
— Leah, Victoria
Bloody excellent service recommend it to all. Work in a labouring job this experience released all the tension in my body and make me feel less stressed and more positive. Its like a weight has been lifted of my shoulders.
— Simon, Western Australia
Beautiful location, relaxing atmosphere and wonderful staff. Thank you for the 5 star treatment, will always come back to Botanica when in Melbourne.
— Tammy, Western Australia
Really beautiful spa inside, very friendly and welcoming staff. My muscle melt massage was amazing. Felt so much better after it. Really helped the aches and pains I had. Can’t wait for my next one.
— Paul, Victoria
Absolutely loved my body treatment at Botanical day spa, my skin was really soft and my body so relaxed! The spa is really beautiful and warming had a wonderful experience highly recommend.
— Angelina, Victoria
Loved the Botanica experience from start to finish. I received a voucher as a birthday gift and booked in for the Absolute Spa Experience. From the moment you step on to the long hotel walkway you already feel like you are stepping away from the hectic world outside. The staff at Botanica are friendly, calm and take the time to chat through your treatment. I had a nice relaxing tea and then went in to start my treatment which was amazing. At the end we discussed products and I felt the team did not try to push me to buy products but instead discussed what I might like to add to my current treatment routine. My therapist gave me a really good overview of the Elemis products she had used two of which I decided to buy. Definitely worth a visit!
— Tanya, Victoria
Best massage I’ve ever had, the building is beautiful and the staff at the day spa lovely, I would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of visiting a day spa in Melbourne. Looking forward to my next visit!
— Jessie, Victoria
Botanica Day Spa is most definitely a 5 star experience. From the beautifully decorated surroundings, plush waiting room with tea and the latest magazines to the friendly therapists who are always on time and happy to accommodate any need . Their hair removal process is clean, fast discreet. I highly recommend making Botanica your regular spa for any/all beauty treatments.
— Hannah, Victoria
Five stars! Fantastic - All products were explained well and treatment was great. Very likely to return when in Melbourne next.
— Michael, New York USA
I have never had a facial before and now I can safely say I will most definitely be back. The facials are amazing, long and relaxing with beautiful smells and back and neck massages. I have sensitive skin and have never had a problem with their products. I have since bought Elemis products and added them into my daily routine. The therapists are lovely and the Manager Sofie has a wealth of knowledge on products and treatments. I highly recommend Botanica Day Spa.
— Sarah, Victoria
Thank you very much for organising the massage for my husband and me. We had a wonderful time. Our therapists were absolutely lovely people and made us feel relaxed. Then when we were being massaged, it was brilliant for us both. The foot massage was a surprise for my husband and it went down a treat. The whole experience was fantastic. Please forward our gratitude to everyone.
— Christine, Canberra
I have pretty regular facials, every month or so, and this one was the most outstanding I have had for a long time. From the second you arrive the surroundings are so peaceful and everyone so lovely, you can’t help but feel relaxed.
