Tucked away in East Perth, is a little place I like to call heaven. Bodhi J Wellness Spa recently opened its beautiful doors on Pier Street, a new destination of tranquility and restoration. If you have experienced pampering at their sister spa in Wembley, then you’ll know what you are in for at their new locale.
I was treated to a Pure Radiance Facial at the beautiful Bodhi J Wellness Spa last week and had the most amazing experience. The moment I stepped beyond the gorgeous wooden gates (custom made in Indonesia no less) I felt the hustle and bustle of my workday quickly disappear and a sense of total relaxation come over me. The spa features nine beautifully appointed treatment rooms including twin treatment rooms, raindrop showers and hydrotherapy spas. I was also blown away by the relaxing manicure and pedicure lounge which I will definitely be back to enjoy. Bodhi J also features a relaxation lounge as well as an outdoor courtyard for guests to unwind pre or post treatment.
Bodhi J also features a Yoga studio, with beautiful Vinyasa Flow classes taught Monday – Saturday. Suitable for all levels (including beginners) these classes aim to stretch, strengthen, tone and flex the body. Only nine places are available per class, so clients are guaranteed personal guidance through each class. Click here to find out more and book.
Upon arrival, I was asked to fill in a form detailing my stress levels, how I was feeling that day and indicating any preferences for massage pressure and extra treatments. I was then led to the guest change rooms where I left my things and slipped into a warm, fluffy white robe and slippers and was taken to the treatment room. The Bodhi J treatment rooms have been perfectly designed to help guests switch off and focus on being pampered – serenely lit, stylishly appointed and the gentle lilt of soothing music is just pure relaxation.
My beauty therapist was Alice who provided an initial consultation on any problems I was having with my skin and how she could address them. For me, tackling dehydration was a major concern and luckily this facial is perfect for just that. Exposure to harsher weather conditions and air conditioners in winter strips skin of its natural moisture leaving it dehydrated and dull. Using the luxurious Sodashi Pure Radiance range, this treatment aims to balance, hydrate and refresh skin – just what the doctor ordered.
The facial included a double cleanse, exfoliate, masque, moisturise and a soothing massage (I chose neck and shoulders). I had also opted for a divine Sodashi Scalp Treatment as an add on to my facial which left my locks super nourished and shiny.
Following my hour of absolute bliss, I slipped back into my robe and headed to the relaxation lounge to enjoy some herbal tea and fresh fruit while slowly coming back to reality. Alice sat down with me and we debriefed on any particular skincare concerns I had to address – changing my cleanser being one of them! I then reluctantly returned to the change rooms to collect my things and headed back out into the real world.
My experience at Bodhi J was absolutely blissful and I would recommend to anyone looking for a little bit of time out from the daily grind. There is something for everyone at Bodhi J with a treatment menu that spans from Express 30 Minute Massage to full day pamper packages.
The service at Bodhi J is second to none, as part of their mission statement is to “strive to surpass any previous spa experience – every single time” – needless to say, I’m looking forward to my next experience at the hands of Bodhi J.
