You know you’re in Canberra when even the spa packages are named after past Australian Prime Ministers. But you might still forget where you are while undertaking one of the many treatments at mudd The Spa, the wonderfully named and lux’d-up spa centre within Barton’s The Realm Hotel. Fitted out with the latest in ultra modern spa and wellness technology, mudd delivers a high end spa experience, likely coming as a relief to weary political and business travellers visiting the Parliamentary Triangle. Mudd’s high end purview is reflected in its price tags, but if you can relax your wallet as well as your body you’ll enjoy some impressive treatments that start at massages and facials and run the gamut through to tanning, hydrotherapy and the mudd body cocoon: a rejuvenating shell that looks as if it could house a Kyrptonian orphan. Mothers-to-be are catered for with a designer treatment and couples can select from a pair of specialised packages.
