About Sudden Echo Day Spa

Step out of serious for a while and enjoy a Spa-Cation

Sudden Echo is a privately owned Day Spa located in the beautiful coastal township of Nelligen. Proud owner Kelly Hadlow and her team are happy to boast that their unique resort style day spa is unlike any other.

“Nothing here is typical.” Kelly explains. We are extremely proud of what we do! Sudden Echo Day Spa make our guests feel extremely welcome, comfortable and at home. We are lucky to be surrounded by lush private bush, mountain views and beautiful gardens. We get to meet so many amazing people and for the short time they are here they get to forget about life for a while… People need that and we are really good at not taking ourselves or life too seriously!

Sudden Echo is about relaxing, recalibrating, rejuvenating and reevaluating life. 

Every visitor is unique and has a story so we cater to suit. Our treatments are amazing and we cater for every budget, gender, age and occasion! From marriage proposals to Tinder dates to our precious little Princess Parties! We absolutely love what we do; it’s not like work to us but about making our guests feel special and pampered.

We have been operating now for 8 years, surviving bush fires, Covid and flooding! It definitely hasn’t hindered our personalities but if anything it’s made us funnier characters! … forget about serious for a while and enjoy your very own Spa-Cation with us at Sudden Echo. We really look forward to treating you soon!”

A Five Star Experience

My fiancé and I had an amazing time at the beautiful and relaxing spa. We were greeted by the lovely and kind ladies, enjoyed the big and bubbly spa, steamy sauna and a relaxing full body massage. Our three hour package concluded with a tasty platter that was fresh and beautifully displayed we also met their kind and sweet bulldog who loved butt scratches. Highly recommend the experience for couples or family members who deserve a relaxing and special day.


We booked in for a couples spa package with a plater and it started with a personalised note on a sign on arrival. Then we started off in the spa with an amazing dragon fruit cocktail followed by a sauna. Then it was time for an awesome salt scrub followed by a massage then finished with a facial. Topped of with a lunch plater. We will definitely book again on our next trip down here. Can't wait to get the cocktail recipe.


What a gem of a spot! So relaxing. Amazing treatments. Kelly is great, experienced and knows how to pamper her clients! The massage table is SO comfortable, the weighted blanket added an element of nurturing and guided mindfulness meditation gave me some me some much needed “ me” time. I was able to relax and ground myself. I will definitely be coming back.


My friend and I had the most lovely spa experience here. Kelly’s place is stunning! From the cosy robes and pretty thongs to the delicious cocktails in the spa and the fabulous scrubs and facial we were looked after like princesses! I thoroughly recommend spending a few hours here. Oh and the lunch platter was out of this world! Thanks so much Kelly.


After hearing that it was my fortieth, Kel made some room for us at the last minute. Honestly, it was one of the most special experiences. My Mum and I had the works- massage, sauna, facial, spa and scrub- finished off by nibbles by the fire. I highly recommend visiting the sudden eco day spa.


Absolutely magical ! My partner and I have never been to a day spa before and it was just amazing , we felt so relaxed ,zen and rejuvenated. The team at Sudden Echo really looked after us , super welcoming and lovely. We cannot wait to go back it was exactly what we needed , could not recommend it more, seriously 5 star!


Kelly and her team are amazing. Went here for my Mums Bday and drove from Canberra for the day. The location is gorgeous and totally relaxed us as soon as we entered the property. The personal touches with a welcome message, cocktail and lunch were wonderful. Well worth the drive and money. We did the couples package and loved everything about it. Definitely go back.


Kelly made my new husband and I feel very welcome, relaxed and spoilt during our honeymoon treatment. Having the whole place to ourselves and allowing us to choose our treatments was just amazing. We already cannot wait to visit again. Would highly recommend.


We went for a girls day (6 of us) and entered the beautiful property and met with Kel and her beautiful staff, we were amazed by the beauty of the place, the treatments were amazing leaving us feeling gorgeous and refreshed, the spa and pool were an absolute pleasure in the 39 degree day we had. We cannot fault this place at all and are already planning our next visit. Thanks for making our day so magical.


From beginning to end, my daughter and I were so looked after from a warm welcome to beautiful treatments and a relaxing spa and sumptuous platter by the fire and a few good laughs thrown in. Thank you girls for taking such good care of us and fitting us in at short notice.
