Villa Thalgo Day Spa

Villa Thalgo Day Spa is situated in the historic town of Windsor, a sensory space for men and women to escape from the stress and pressures of everyday life. It is set within eight hectares of manicured, landscaped gardens and is well positioned to catch the gentle breeze and breathtaking views of the Hawkesbury Valley and foothills of the Blue Mountains. From the moment you enter Villa Thalgo Day Spa you will be taken on a unique journey that has been created only for you.

The experience

Designed to stimulate all your senses, Villa Thalgo becomes your own private sanctuary. From anti-ageing facials to hands-on body therapies; from male grooming and treatments for mothers-to-be, Villa Thalgo brings you premium Thalgo products combined with the highest quality therapy and expertise. The truly incredible Villa Thalgo therapy menu has been created to respect the body’s complex physiology and work in synergy to rebalance the subtle energies of the mind and body.

A pioneer in marine scientific research, Villa Thalgo invites you on a unique sensory experience at the heart of the oceans. Drawing on over forty years of skincare expertise, Villa Thalgo Spa cleverly brings together beauty results and deep relaxation. Surrender to the pleasure of the exclusive massages combing exquisite traditional techniques with the latest innovative practices. Pampered in luscious, enveloping textures, you will drift away amidst heavenly fragrances.

Villa Thalgo is located within the grounds of Crowne Plaza Hawkesbury Valley. This perfect retreat has the ambience of a country hideaway, with more than 100 guest rooms and suites, many with their own personal spa, and some with open fireplace. Choose from 24 Barracks rooms, 37 Courtyard rooms, 14 Courtyard Spa rooms, 21 Deluxe Spa rooms and eight suites with spas.

The treatments

The physical centrepiece of Villa Thalgo is the indoor swimming pool. An exquisite setting to relax in, the cathedral vaulted ceiling, classical columns and decor, and rows of French doors that open out into courtyards resplendent with gardenias give it a distinctive aura of style and elegance. The 17m x 8m x 1.4m pool is heated, and is used for relaxation.

For the special experience of a relaxing treatment massage by 72 underwater jets, there’s nothing quite like a Hydrotherapy Spa. Programmed to suit individual requirements, the jet massage allows increased circulation and strengthens muscle-tone while helping to eliminate toxins and relieve fluid retention, and facilitates spot reduction in affected areas. Essential oils are added to the water for therapeutic effects, alone or with essential oils.

The Affusion Shower is a unique, personalised shower that comprises eight pressure jets in all, three on each side of the body to massage and stimulate the upper, mid and lower body, and two overhead jets to either invigorate or calm the neck and shoulders.

You might also enjoy the Steam Room, which is an unexpected pleasure as it provides all the benefits of a sauna without the discomfort. As the steam room operates at lower temperatures than a sauna, the steam assists with respiratory problems and also hydrates the skin due to the humidity. Aromatherapy oils can be incorporated into the steam room to provide additional benefits.

Villa Thalgo has eight treatment rooms and three wet rooms where you can have either Swedish, Aromatherapy, Remedial, Hot Stone Therapy or Indian head massage by a trained masseuse for relaxing and de-stressing.

Across all its treatments Villa Thalgo uses Thalgo, AlphaH, LightStim, and Gehwol products. These brands align science and results whilst bringing about deep relaxation of the mind and body which is at the core of the Villa Thalgo philosophy. The brands also complement the overall Mission and Vision statements of Villa Thalgo Day Spa which is to take you on a unique journey that has been designed only for you and provide a sensory space to escape from the ever-evolving rhythm of everyday life.

Using the world’s leading brands, combined with time honoured customs, the spa journey at Villa Thalgo has been created to respect the body’s complex physiology and works in synergy to rebalance the subtle energies of the mind and body. The Villa Thalgo approach to spa creates an experience that’s ‘all about you’, is holistic, and combines beauty and wellness alchemy to transform the human experience, in the pursuit of living a healthier and more intuitive life.
