From humble beginnings as a hotspot for family getaways, The Mornington Peninsula is today just as synonymous with those seeking a more luxurious escape. This can be attributed to the 200+ wineries in the area, indulgent experiences and accommodation—and now, the announcement of Alba Thermal Springs and Spa is set to offer another reason to visit the region.

With plans to open doors in Spring 2022, Alba Thermal Springs will offer a contemporary experience like no other in Australia. The bathing will be just one star of the show, with Alba leaning on the geothermal springs in the region to create stunning pools—some which can be booked privately. Thermal springs aside, exclusive spa, health and wellness treatments will also play a substantial part to Alba’s luxe offering. 

Behind the build and working closely with Alba is architecture practice, Hayball, which focuses on progressive urban design, while Mala Studio will create a landscape to complement the space and pools.

Alongside the state-of-the-art spa will be an in-house restaurant, Thyme, which will be under the culinary direction of none other than Australian food icon, Karen Martini. Opening up simultaneously with the spring and spa facilities, Thyme will be seat up to 120 diners and will put a focus on the quality food and wine available on the Peninsula, with the menu changing seasonally. “I'm so excited to be partnering with Alba on this project... the all-day menu I am creating will feature fresh, wholesome dishes with modern Mediterranean influences", says Martini.
 In terms of the restaurant space, it's still quite tight-lipped but we've been told we can expect a combination of indoor and rooftop terrace dining, with views across the Peninsula. 
Alba Thermal Springs is located in Fingal and is taking bookings for later in the year here
