Recently I stayed as a guest at Noosa Springs while researching a story for the summer edition of Selector LifeFoodWine magazine. Noosa Springs is about 10 minutes drive from Hastings Street on the shore of Lake Weyba. It has several advantages including a serious gym with classes, a wonderful spa, a good sized pool suitable for laps and an on-site restaurant which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. The whole resort focuses around the main star of the show, which is a championship golf course. To a serious non-golf player the course looked pristine and beautiful, plus offered a very relaxing view from the restaurant. We had a breakfast buffet and lunch at the restaurant. The day spa offers a wide selection of treatments including a hydro massage pool with seriously strong underwater jets to massage your body. I also had a rose quartz crystal facial and had a lot of trouble staying awake - I was so relaxed! I purchased some of the Babor products used in the facial and my skin has never been better! We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was very nicely appointed and had views over the golf course. Noosa Springs is a great alternative if you don't want to stay in Hastings Street or Noosaville. I stayed at the resort as the guest of Tourism Noosa.
