Revel in some R&R at these Brisbane bathhouses and ice bath suites

A hot new health trend is here and it’s swapping some new gruelling workout regime for a bask in the bath. With a long list of enviable health benefits from stress management to enhanced mood – a soak session in perfectly tempered mineral waters can help you reawaken and reset. Take a deep dive into Brisbane’s best spots to soak and cold plunge.

Soak Bathhouse, West End – Hidden on the top floor of West Village, Soak Bathhouse boasts communal baths scattered across its rooftop. Each of the mineral baths have been expertly tempered from 12 degrees to 38 degrees to achieve the optimal temperature for your body to refresh, relax and recharge. Amidst the wellness precinct, you’ll also find a steam room and traditional dry red cedar wood sauna as well as lounge areas to lay out and clock some leisure time. 

Vikasati, Red Hill – At the back of this holistic wellness and fitness centre, you’ll find the Sanctuary, ready for you to take a pause or take the plunge. Viktasati recreates the escape of a holiday with spaces to recover from your workout or work week. Sweat it out in the generous Finnish sauna and energise your body with a nearly freezing plunge in the 5-degree cold ice bath, or unwind in one of the outdoor hot or cold magnesium baths, tempered at 37 degrees and 14 degrees.  

Ritual Haus, Bowen Hills – This luxury space is dedicated to a multi-modal approach to health and wellness with a yoga studio and practitioner team. At The Bathhouse, you’ll find an infrared sauna and personal cold-plunge bath – designed to be experienced together. Wind down in the warmth of your private sauna, then refresh with a plunge in the cold bath and indulge in Aesop products, wellness snacks and adaptogenic drinks.

Th7 BodyLabs, West End – The flagship centre brings the latest recovery therapies for elite athletes to West End from cryotherapy chambers to oxygen chambers. The on-site ice baths are set at just 6-degrees and can be enjoyed alongside steams and saunas to boost the effect. Th7 BodyLabs also offers side-by-side contrast therapy pools, allowing you to alternate between hot and cold for a unique wellness experience.

Merse Wellness Spa, Virginia – Opening its doors in early 2024, Merse Wellness Spa is one of the latest additions to Brisbane’s growing line-up of wellness spaces. This bathhouse is home to cold plunges, contrast therapy, hot spas and magnesium floats – intended to be experienced together to receive the best relaxation results. Alongside the Mediterranean-inspired bathhouse you’ll find traditional or infrared saunas and massage rooms to truly pamper yourself. 

Iremia Recovery, Sandgate – This holistic wellness sanctuary nestled on the northside is dedicated to the wellness of its community. Recharge and revitalise in Iremia Recovery’s multiple baths of calming magnesium and mineral waters. In the recovery room, you’ll find hot pools, cold plunge and saunas. Iremia even offers an express plunge that lets you sneak in a 30-minute session to help you prioritise wellness in your routine. 

River Styx Recovery, Tarragindi – This secluded outdoor spa is actually hidden at the back of a residential property on Brisbane’s southside. Only available for private sessions, River Styx Recovery offers a magnesium plunge pool and 5-degrees ice bath as well as an infrared sauna and outdoor shower that’s all yours for your session. Surrounded by lush palms with a resort-style design, River Styx Recovery lets you reset and reconnect in total solitude.
