We went for the 3 hours yum cha lunch, private hot springs and massage for 2 people. The whole experience was luxurious, relaxing and rejuvenating! The buildings and experience is a real holiday and so close to home! We recommend this anyone who needs a break together, from the hustle and bustle of life and want to reconnect in a... More

You must, must, must visit. From the moment we stepped out of car someone was looking after us and moving us to our amazing yum cha into the pool and then to top it all off the magical massage in the most opulent of settings. This is definitely a hidden Melbourne Gem. Do it!

Didn't stay overnight (though I wish we had). We did the lunch, mineral springs and massage package. Everything was spot on, top rate and impeccable. We couldn't have asked for anything more really (except more time to enjoy the beautiful surrounds and experiences). The lunch, a Yum Cha, was excellent, with fresh food and lots of it. The private mineral... More

I was just about to review my latest experience of this wonderful spa when I noticed a very negative review which has really surprised me. The member states her apparent neglect when attending the spa. What surprises me is that I have attended this wonderful haven a number of times over the years and can not fault the customer service... More

This retreat is just that, a place to retreat from everyday life, relax and enjoy the pampering. The staff could not do enough for us and every treatment was excellent. We stayed in the Bali accommodation and it was isolated, quiet and felt like we had been transported to Bali. The set menu dinner exceeded expectations and we really enjoyed... More
