Beautifully designed boutique hotels have something that can instantly calm guests from stress in a way that larger hotels cannot. Do you want evidence? Just walk into the humble lobby of QT Bondi and feel the worries of the day melt like fine butter on a hot summer day. That doubles now that the boutique has partnered with the local downtime palace, Slow House.

A new partnership between QT Bondi and Slow House will channel Bondi’s blissful wellness scene to immerse guests in every imaginable aspect of self-care and wellbeing, and to ensure their stay is truly relaxing and nourishing.

To this end, the partnership has put together four “Slow Set To Slow Rise” experience packages – QT Restore, Remedy, Recover or Revive – from which guests can choose in a manner similar to how they would choose treatments from a luxury spa.

Each has been developed by Slow House to offer holistic therapies tailored to guests’ needs. The experiences include a variety of techniques including infrared saunas, Omnilux Revive LED treatments, traditional charcoal saunas, and ice baths.

Every Slow Set To Slow Rise experience is linked to a QT stay, so you can make it into a whole night and morning, whether as an individual or as a group.

The QT Restore package includes a sauna experience. QT Remedy offers both a sauna experience and an Omnilux LED treatment. QT Recovery combines a sauna with an ice bath. And QT Revive offers Slow House’s signature slow treatment.

“Slow House Bondi is excited to partner with QT Bondi,” said Slow House Co-Founder Tash Higham. “It’s only when we leave for a short weekend getaway or take a step back from our daily routine that we often learn the hard way that downtime is at least as important – and arguably more important – than business hours.”
