If you are after a beauty day spa Melbourne has many private as well as luxurious hotel spas.
A spa is all about you - time away from the hustle and bustle of life, time to recharge and rebalance, time to get pampered, to look after your body, your wellbeing - it's your space.
Spas are not a new cultural trend! They have been with us for thousands of years. Beginning with the Mesopotamians, there have been Egyptian and Greek spas, Roman and Korean bath houses, Turkish baths, Indian sweat lodges, Finnish saunas, Japanese hot pools and European bath and water cures.
All over Europe you find numerous towns with names like Spa, Bath, or Bad (bath in German). They are offering cures for various physical or spiritual ailments. Treatments include hot air baths, thermal pools, mineral and herbal springs, massages, scrubs and oil treatments, mud packs, steam rooms, saunas, ice plunges
People have been seeking the spiritual and medical benefit of water, but spas have also been places for social activities and often combined the body treatments with lavish food, entertainment, parties, or simply hanging out together.
There are numerous lavish day spas in Melbourne - both privately operated and as part of major hotels. Each of them provides you with that real special time away from it all, as well as great ambience and professional treatments.
You can get pampered with facials, hand and feet baths, massages, mud wraps, hydrotherapy, exfoliation, face masks, skin care and anti-aging therapy, hot rocks treatments, aromatherapy, shiatsu, detox scrubs and anti-cellulite care.
You may even be invited to relax with a sip of champagne, strawberries, chocolate or a coffee in great ambience, surrounded by aromatic scents and a beautiful environment.
Celebrating special events, such as hens parties, or for a romantic night out, some spas offer couple or group sessions that you can design in your style, including perhaps some champagne, lunch and nibbles all in your own private retreat lounge.
There is still a traditional Japanese Bath House in Melbourne. Here you can after your initial shower and scrub relax in the communal Japanese bath, and get a scrub or unblock your energy pathways with a Shiatsu treatment. You can follow that by Tatami Lounge (rush straw mat) relaxation with Japanese beer, sake or green tea.
There are natural thermal mineral springs on the Mornington Pensinsula that have been captured in the pools and baths of the idyllic Peninsula Hot Springs. The healing waters of these mineral rich thermal pools are great for relaxation and rejuvenation.
There is a Peninsula Hot Spring tour that will give you a scenic tour of the Mornington Penisula as well as access to the spa.
