Nestled among the coastal tea-trees of Fingal, Peninsula Hot Springs has remained a key attraction on the Mornington Peninsula for good reason. Their relaxing facilities make it an obvious choice for a visit and the team is always developing experiences to remain the ultimate wellness destination.
On the bathing front you’ll be spoiled for choice with over 50 different bathing experiences in a variety of tranquil settings. Let the mineral-packed natural geothermal spring water rejuvenate your weary bones in the Bath House with friends; or move up into the Spa Dreaming Centre for a more peaceful and intimate experience with bae. If you want more than just a dip in the water and a massage or facial is for you—then you’re in luck with a wide range of professional therapists on hand. Make sure you check out the onsite cafes or pack a picnic and set up under an umbrella in the picnic gardens.
Launching on World Wellness Weekend (22 to 23 September) is the $13 million expansion of Peninsula Hot Springs. The brand new open-air Bath House Amphitheatre is now home to seven new hot spring pools, two cold plunges, two supersized saunas, an ice cave, deep freeze and new cafe.
The Fire and Ice experience is a must try—hop between two super-sized saunas and the minus 25-degree deep freeze, minus 4-degree ice cave and ice cold plunge pool before sliding into the soothing 34-degree hot springs. It's an experience that awakens the senses, that's for sure!
A brand new wellness centre has also been added into the mix, offering yoga classes and other wellness experiences—we've got our eyes on the Hamam and Bathe package, just sayin'.
Entrance to the Bath House starts at $25 and ranges to $55 during peak times. Find all the details here and start planning your relaxing escape from the city.
