New indulgences at Peninsula Hot Springs

Massaging falling water pool one of 7 new indulgences at Peninsula Hot Springs

Seven new bathing experiences including a massaging falling water pool and rejuvenating hand and foot baths have been opened at the multi-award winning Peninsula Hot Springs on Melbourne's Mornington Peninsula.

Peninsula Hot Springs, which now has 39 bathing experiences, has invested some $14 million in a magnificent complex which boasts Victoria's only naturally heated mineral water and day spa centre.

The seven new Southern Terrace pools add to existing social Bath House experiences which include mineral spring pools, a cave pool, underground sauna, reflexology walk, hydrotherapy pool and shallow pools and fun barrel baths for children. The Spa Dreaming Centre provides a separate tranquil bathing and luxurious treatment haven for patrons 16 years and older. 

A traditional Turkish steam bath (hamam), the first to be opened in Australia for nearly 100 years, was added late last year. Twice a day special one hour workshops are offered for groups of 4 to 14 to learn the exfoliation, massage and cleansing procedures of the Turkish bath.
Peninsula Hot Springs is open 7.30am – 10pm daily. Winter is the perfect time to enjoy the natural heat and health benefits of mineral waters, which have been used in therapeutic treatments in Europe for more than 600 years. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners are available a-la-carte or in packages making this and ideal option for a half or full day relaxation escape.

Here are two great deals to help enjoy some blissful relaxation at Peninsula Hot Springs:

·         An Escape Package, including two passes to Peninsula Hot Springs, one night's accommodation in a deluxe spa suite at luxurious One Four Nelson in Rye and a cooked breakfast for $285 per couple (normally $315 per couple). One Four Nelson is located right opposite Rye beach, and has 30 stylish suites overlooking a heated pool and spa.

·         A Mornington Peninsula Attractions Pass, which costs only $55 for adults (with more than $80 full retail value) and $40 for children, and includes entry plus bonus offers at Peninsula Hot Springs, Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens, Cape Schanck Lightstation and Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park. A 10% discount offer is also included at Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm, Box Stallion Winery and the Rye Hotel.
