The Aboriginal name for Orpheus is Goolboddi and the island’s original inhabitants were the Manbarra people. In consultation with the elders of the region, this spa was named Gwandalan which means ‘rest and peace’ in the Aboriginal language.
Peace guides every element of this spa. With a unique collection of treatments that embrace the principals of modern and indigenous herbalism, aromatherapy and touch therapy, our rituals are inspired by traditional Aboriginal techniques and aim to restore balance and wellness.
The Gwandalan Day Spa uses the exquisite LI’TYA [le-dee-ah] spa product range. LI’TYA, meaning ‘of the earth’, is a unique collection of products formulated using sustainably wild-harvested, pure Australian botanicals and organic ingredients.
Following the guidance of indigenous plant knowledge and healing principals, our treatments are designed to reflect the tranquillity and uninterrupted beauty of Orpheus and its endless surrounding seas. Keeping true to the Aboriginal teachings, our therapists have been extensively trained in the wisdom of the indigenous people and educated in the use of Australian native ingredients to gain the skills to perform a collection of signature treatments.
