We’ve got you covered with five reasons that will leave your energy-tank overflowing faster than the bubble bath you’re about to pour.
If you’ve spent any time on social media, you’ll know self-care isn’t selfish. It’s just a great excuse to spend more time and energy on yourself, without any of the associated guilt. Put down your motivational quotes. If you’re looking to fill the tank, why not take your self-care ritual on tour and check into Pullman Cairns International.
1. Its location is everything
When you’ve come to stay in Cairns to see the two World Heritage-listed wonders on its doorstep, you don’t want to stay so far away from the action you can’t see any of it.
Enter Pullman Cairns International, overlooking not just the Great Barrier Reef but Wet Tropics Rainforest, with the choice of harbour, Trinity Inlet and mountain views from its five room styles. With mere footsteps between the Reef Fleet Terminal, Esplanade and Night Markets, take it from us, there’s really no need to pull your car out of the undercover car park after you’ve arrived.
Pullman Cairns International is about to become the home base you never want to leave.
2. This hotel is grand
If you’re wanting to recharge the batteries, you’ll want to plug yourself in somewhere plush. Pullman Cairns International exudes grandeur, giving a nod to Cairns’ rich colonial past with its spacious lobby and rooms that leave plenty of space for twirling in your white bathrobe. Large balconies from all rooms mean you can breathe in the clean Cairns O2 and get into the tropical spirit faster.
3. Its spa is a destination in itself
Most hotels have spas, but not all hotels are known for them. Pullman Cairns International bucks the trend with Vie Spa, its onsite treatment parlour which promises to transport you away from the stress of the outside world. While you’ll find all the usual spa treatment suspects on their service menu, you’ll also spot something you won’t find anywhere else in Cairns, a Vichy shower bed.
Who knew targeting your immune system was as simple as laying down and being pampered? The treatment starts with dry body brushing to stimulate your lymphatic system before being blasted by warm mist to reinforce the immune system and relax the body.
If you’re dead-keen on making your self-care a ritual and less of a ‘once I’m burnt out’ reaction, start collecting stamps on your Pamper Passport, which entitles you to discounts and upgrades.
4. You can enjoy a high tea
If you’re the sort of person whose weakness is pastries, then leave your diet at home this trip. Pullman Cairns International is proud to have an award-winning pastry team, one that offers a stunning selection of handmade creations daily, best experienced on the hotels signature high tea range. They’re so committed to the high tea service, there’s even a kids adaptation, chocolate, savoury and a healthy one too, which is packed with three tiers of superfoods, all raw, unrefined and sugar free.
Why not treat yo’ self good and proper and combine high tea with a spa package, combining a 60 minute treatment with signature high tea?
5. Treating yourself doesn’t stop after five
There’s no need to have to rely on house wine at Pullman Cairns International. Their onsite restaurant, Coco’s Kitchen & Bar, is stocked with boutique drops, many of which hail from nearby producers.
You don’t need to drive to the Atherton Tablelands to try the award-winning Mt Uncle Distillery. On Coco’s menu you can cheers to their gin, whiskey, rums and vodka. If the thought of eating and drinking local has piqued your interest, you’ll be happy to know you can also find Davidson plums on the breakfast buffet and in mousse for dessert, Gallo Dairy cheese on the high tea boards and local coffee, Skybury, fuelling your Cairns adventure.
After all, self-care is nothing if not about balance.
