Awaken the senses and rebalance the mind and body at our island day spa. Gwandalan means ‘rest and peace’ in the Aboriginal language. The day spa was named in consultation with the elders of the region and draws inspiration from the island’s unique and fascinating indigenous history.  As the name suggests, peace guides every element of the spa while each treatment aims to restore balance and wellness.

Our treatments are designed to reflect the tranquillity and uninterrupted beauty of Orpheus and its endless surrounding seas. Decadent spa treatments utilise Li’tya 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.
