Indulge at Stephanies® Luxury Spas in Queensland
Stephanies® Luxury Spas
In 1994 it began as a modest two-room beauty salon in Camp Hill and has evolved in to a portfolio of highly regarded luxury spas across South-East Queensland. ‘It’ is Stephanies Luxury Spas and Stephanie Shepherd is the CEO, founder and woman behind the brand. A revered boutique of spas, Stephanies offers exceptional quality pampering to everyone from international celebrities and corporate high flyers to everyday mums and dads.
According to Stephanie Shepherd, “I had a vision and desire to combine beauty therapies with peaceful places of harmony and balance. I dreamt of creating more than a beauty therapist salon. I wanted to design spas where people could cocoon themselves from the outside world. Even if my clients were only visiting for a short time, I wanted them to feel like they had entered another world when they stepped through the doors.”
This is exactly what Stephanie Shepherd has created, luxury retreats where clients indulge in decadent world-class treatments or the simple pleasures of the monthly maintenance manicure.
Stephanies® Urban Spa, Bulimba
Located on Oxford Street in the hip suburb of Bulimba in Brisbane, Stephanies Urban Spa is an oasis of luxury where you can indulge in decadent world-class spa treatments or the simple pleasures of your essential beauty needs.
The spa offers 10 treatment rooms, a luxe boudoir-inspired pedicure lounge and a MediSpa suite. The MediSpa offers a range of advanced minimally invasive cosmetic procedures with no downtime.
In addition to a decadent menu of soul-pleasing treatments, Stephanies boasts a retail boutique offering an extensive range of professional skincare products, unique spa gifts, body elixirs, gift lines and heavenly candle selections.
Stephanies® Spa Retreat, Brisbane
Located on level three of Sofitel Brisbane Central, this spa boasts eight treatment rooms, including individual suites and a couple’s suite. The sensory and tranquillity lounges are ideal for group bookings and are popular for hens’ evenings, pre-wedding parties and baby showers.
The Opal Rasul Temple is undoubtedly the masterpiece of this Stephanies Spa Retreat. The unique mosaic dome-style cave is the only one of its kind in the southern hemisphere and its benefits have been enjoyed by the likes of many sports identities and musical starlets, including the talented Alicia Keys and Chris Martin. A popular experience for friends to enjoy together, the Opal Rasul Temple can accommodate up to four adults. The treatment is a sultry one-hour journey of mud therapy, warm steam and tropical rain showers. The ancient cleansing ritual involves covering the body in Stephanies’ signature mineralised body masks to powerfully detox and purify the skin. The temple comes complete with personal showers and a filtered water station so clients are assured of absolute privacy and comfort throughout the spa experience.
Stephanies® and Thalgo
Thalgo has been enjoyed within the Stephanies spa family for the last 22 years. One of the Thalgo top picks that clients experience at Stephanies Luxury Spas is the Anti-Age Intensive Hyaluronic treatment, which yields reliable and immediate results.
Stephanie Shepherd says, “We love providing personalised treatments and educating our clients in committed quality skincare routines at home and using advanced in-spa treatments. That’s why we include a variety of Thalgo rituals or a series of skincare programs of advanced technologies, mixed with results-driven Lightstim LED, Thalgo Skin expert microdermabrasion and iBeauty.”

La Vie elixir is born
Creator and founder Stephanie Shepherd has spent her life creating luxury spa rituals for her clients using the best in skin and body products from across the globe. Exposure to such a vast array of products inspired Stephanie to create her very own elixirs, inspired by her favourite natural ingredients, application methods and anti-ageing secrets. A lifelong passion for Stephanie, La Vie elixir has been decades in the making and personally blended, created and tested by Stephanie and her trusted team of spa and beauty therapists. With sprinklings of minerals reminiscent of her of her Broken Hill home, the collection also embraces the finest ingredients that Mother Nature has to offer from vitamin-rich flora, anti-ageing concentrates and essential oils. The result is a collection of spa-grade beauty products and tea rituals that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your very own boudoir or home.
