Relax… just do it

Written by: Success NQ | April 1, 2019

Whether you’re a hotel guest looking to relax and indulge on holiday, or you’re a Cairns local seeking a moment of calm and a little pampering, Eléme Day Spa at Crystalbrook Collection’s Riley hotel awaits.

With its soothing colour palette of teal, blush pink, fresh white and duck egg blue, accented with natural timbers and textured fabrics, Eléme Day Spa at Cairns’ newest 5-star hotel Riley is understated luxury. The spa, which is open to both guests and the public, offers exactly what you would expect of a 5-star hotel spa – excellent customer service, skilled therapists, a well-considered menu and stunning products. 

“We only use thoughtful products – good for you, good for the environment,” says Eléme’s Spa Manager Kelly Adair. 

Products include botanical-based West Australian skincare range Sodashi, Californian science-based cosmeceutical range Cosmedix, and Melbourne nail polish brand Miss Frankie which Kelly tells us is a breathable formula, free from the common toxic ingredients found in many nail polish ranges. The Sodashi range is particularly luxurious, with products such as the age-defying ‘Samadara’ using Madagascan rose quartz crystal donut in its application for Eléme’s Madame Quartz facial.


“We only use thoughtful products – good for you, good for the environment.”


“It really is the little things that make such a big difference to the spa experience,” Kelly continues. “Things like our Eléme custom massage oil blends, our luxurious slippers and fresh flowers throughout the spa.” 

Eléme offers four treatment rooms, including one couple’s room, and three of the rooms have showers attached for those who book messier treatments, such as body scrubs. 

“We offer a range of treatments, from 30-minute foot treatments to five-hour day spa experience. Our five-hour package includes a bento box lunch and glass of sparkling, and is a beautiful way to celebrate a special occasion or just really treat yourself to relaxing day of pampering and self-care,” says Kelly.

From facials to massages, hair and scalp treatments to thermal masks, pregnancy massage to men’s treatments, pedicure to medi peels, waxing, tinting and more, Eléme Day Spa is open for business. Best of all, the spa menu is designed to flex, which means the therapists can personalise each treatment to suit your body, your skin and your mood.

For those who live in North Queensland, Crystalbrook Local membership is free and gets you 15% off rooms, spa treatments, food and drink. Visit to sign up.

Eleme is open 7 days a week, and bookings are recommended. Phone 4252 7700 or visit to view the spa menu and book via email.
