          Hi, I worked there as a Spa Manager 2004 until my husband became very ill and passed away. I wonder weather the Spa is still operating? I love Shoal Bay . I see its been re named as well. I am qualified in all areas of the Day Spa, Is the treatment rooms and equipment still all there?

          There are spa pools beside the lap pool. There was no beauty treatment or spa treatments there in February when we were there.
