Coinciding with the resort’s 30th birthday celebrations, Fairmont Resort & Spa Blue Mountains has officially opened its highly anticipated Ubika Day Spa, making it one of the largest, purpose-built day spa facilities in Australia.
The spa was officially opened by hotel owner, Dr Jerry Schwartz, alongside his son, Dane; Trish Doyle, State MP for Blue Mountains; Scott O’Neile and Leigh Salas from Fairmont Resort; Simon McGrath, COO AccorHotels Pacific; and Michael Issenberg, Chairman and CEO of AccorHotels Asia Pacific. The grand, two-storey Ubika Day Spa & Wellness Retreat boasts 16 treatment rooms – each with its own shower – and four couple’s rooms, including one deluxe couples room with private spa bath.
The day spa also features a Vichy Shower room, a Zen room to relax pre- and post-treatment in front of a fireplace, a yoga room, gymnasium and beauty salon.
Surrounded by natural beauty, the building has been designed to tie in with the surrounding World Heritage Site, with sandstone walkways, blackbutt detailing, water features, fishponds and an autumnal colour theme featuring throughout.
General Manger for Fairmont Resort Blue Mountains, Scott O’Neile, said “There is no doubt the Fairmont holds a lot of memories for a lot people.
