Peninsula Hot Springs: The vibe
Even if you’re not a morning person, you’ll be itching to start the day at Australia’s Peninsula Hot Springs. Ontario has its fair share of amazing spas, but this wellness wonderland in the land down under takes the cake. Just under a 90-minute drive from Melbourne, this natural geothermal gem is a deep breath of fresh air and a haven for leisure seekers.
The pools, heated by natural springs hundreds of metres below ground, blend seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. They’re also infused with minerals that will leave you feeling so relaxed you’ll be wondering how you can get one at home. More like a sanctuary, the spa offers a variety of signature treatments and balancing therapies. Our fave? The organic mineral mud wrap followed by a massage.
Peninsula Hot Springs: The rooms
If you can’t fathom leaving (we don’t blame you), treat yourself to one of the spa’s luxurious glamping accommodations with a view of the garden, lake, or opt for your own secluded pavilion. The delightful tents come equipped with ensuite bathrooms, king-size beds, walls and electricity so you can be in nature without reaaaaally being in nature. It’s the perfect place to rest your head after a long, relaxing day of pampering at the spa.
Peninsula Hot Springs: The menu
From sun-drenched rolling hills to flourishing green trees, there’s an abundance of gorgeous scenery to soak in during your stay at the Peninsula Hot Springs. But don’t forget to nourish your stomach, too. The best part? You won’t have to change out of your robe, like ever.
Wake up with breakfast and freshly ground coffee at the Bath House, or get healthy snacks delivered right to your favourite relaxation station at the resort. When you’re looking for something a bit more hearty, head to the Spa Dreaming Centre to indulge in delicious chef-driven seasonal fare.
Accommodations from $670 a night.
