If you’re looking for relaxation and rejuvenation close to Melbourne, look no further than the Peninsula Hot Springs. Set amongst stunning scenery ninety minutes from the city centre, the day spa offers thermal mineral water pools and private baths for the ultimate idyllic oasis.
Offering a complete contrast to the hustle and bustle of Melbourne, the Peninsula Hot Springs is a firm favourite amongst family and friends, with a range of facilities to help aid a relaxing experience.
Dating back to 1997, the Hot Springs were founded by Charles and Richard Davidson, two brothers who got the inspiration for the retreat after visiting Japan and its many hot springs.
There are two main hot spring options at the Peninsula Hot Springs, both of which provide a different kind of experience for different people.
The Bath House
Firstly, there is the Bath House, which is a social pool and perfect for family-friendly bathing.
While there, you can experience and explore 20 different bathing experiences, each of which has been inspired by a different area around the world. There is a cave pool for a quirky experience, as well as a reflexology walk, a traditional Turkish steam bath, and cold plunge pools.
As well as this, there is a family bathing area, massaging thermal mineral showers, and a pool set on a hilltop that boasts breath-taking 360-degree views around the surrounding scenery.
If you want to check out the Bath House and all it has to offer, you have to book as it gets busy quickly, particularly in peak season.
Spa Dreaming Centre
Made especially for guests over the age of sixteen, the Spa Dreaming Centre promises tranquil spaces for the ultimate relaxation experience. There are several communal pools, as well as a few private pools if you’re looking for isolation and peace and quiet.
On top of that, there are a range of pampering spa treatments designed specially to revitalize the mind, body, and spirit, including an Australian Aboriginal-inspired kodo full body massage, facial treatments, mud and salt wraps, and a range of ancient healing stone experiences.
Again, if you want to experience everything the Spa Dreaming Centre has to offer, it’s a good idea to book, especially if you’re looking to indulge in some of the pampering treatments.
Escaping the crowds of Melbourne and venturing into the lush countryside to the Mornington Peninsula Hot Springs is the perfect way to refresh and revitalize. With a range of treatments and pools to enjoy, there’s a little something for everyone.
