A beautifully designed space for world-class massages.
Set in an industrial space within the Arts and Industrial Estate area, Comma Spaces is a beautifully designed concept spa. They offer a boutique menu of just eight healing massages and one facial plus a handful of add-ons.
During our visit, we booked the ‘The Long Exhale’ as we were informed this massage is performed slowly, with long soothing strokes. It was sooooo good! First-up, the practitioner drapes heat packs over your shoulders that feels deeply therapeutic and from here, strategically places heat packs throughout your massage. Be prepared to sink into that incredible parasympathetic state of being. It’s the ideal massage for anyone experiencing any stress, tightness, tech-neck and digital overload.
What’s not to love about Comma! It’s small, yet thoughtfully designed. Interiors feature timber furnishings draped with beige and cream linens. The massage spaces are divided by luxurious linen drapes. There’s a little nook for post-treatment herbal tea. Lighting is reflective and moody. It’s elegance in every way.
What we love
Founder Suzie Mcintosh has great style. We love the creative names of the treatments, such as ‘Last Resort’, ‘The Vessel’ and ‘Equilibrium’. We also love that the treatment menu is small and boutique (this is no sizzler menu where there are so many offerings you start to question the quality). Every practitioner is well-trained in all the massage sequences.
What’s not to love
Not everyone will appreciate the rooms divided using fabric (rather than walls and doors). However, during our treatment we didn’t hear a whisper from any other guests.
P.S. Although born in Byron Bay, last year Comma Spaces opened a second destination in Melbourne and it features a gorgeous bathhouse. There are whispers that they may open a Bathhouse here in Byron Bay (fingers crossed).
Treatments range from $130-$140 for a 60-minute massage to $180-$190 for a 90-minute massage.
