In Sydney, beauty is everything. Which explains why the Banyan Tree resort group chose the harbor city for its first day spa. Angsana Spa Double Bay lists 39 Eastern-influenced treatments on its menu, such as the Indonesian deep-tissue massage and the Ayurvedic workout, led by two masseuses. The décor also gives a nod to Asia: jade objets brighten the five treatment rooms; two have chiffon-draped four-poster baths in which ginseng infusions soothe stressed-out urbanites. The Angsana opened in January and is already so popular that the resort inaugurated two other locations—Hong Kong and Taiwan—just last month. Angsana Spa Double Bay, 15 Bay St.; 800/525-4800;
