We’re always looking for new ways to spend our weekend, and luckily we have found your next location for a weekend away.
It can be hard to find affordable luxury accommodation when traveling regionally – good news, we found it! Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa offers a series of 10 glamorous five-star villas with their new Hepburn Spa Retreat. Each villa offers premium features including a kitchen, marble spa and bath, double shower, king size bed and a fireplace, perfect for cosying up to during Winter. With balconies on every villa, the Hepburn Spa Retreat has the most stunning views which means if you don’t want to, you wouldn’t really need to leave the rooms.
Food services are limited, so make sure you bring enough meals with you. Unfortunately, Hepburn Spa Retreat does not offer any room service, and aside from a short drive to town, Menulog is the only option for delivery to your villa. Even then, the food options are limited with only three restaurants open on the service.
Massages + Facials
Feeling burnt out from life in the city? The massages and facials on offer at Hepburn Bathouse and Spa will be just the thing you need. I arrived to Daylesford hotspotting my laptop from my phone, and answering emails from the car. To say I was busy, was an understatement. When our massage was booked, I walked to the rooms with my head in my phone desperately answering last minute emails. To be honest, I was pessimistic a massage would be all I needed to unwind. To my surprise, after my 1 hour massage and aromatherapy package, I was perfectly relaxed and ready for a few hours in the bathhouse.
Offering a number of different massage and facial therapies, whether you prefer a Muscle Focus Massage or the ultra relaxing Volcanic Hot Stone Massage, there is something for everybody and every pressure preference.
For those living in Melbourne, our default is to go down the Eastern Peninsula and dive into a number of the bathing options down there. Trust me when I say – that fans of bathing and relaxation need to try going west and visiting Hepburn Bathouse and Spa for their next experience. Offering both public and private bathing from $25, affordable luxury bathing does indeed exist!
With inclusions such as aroma steam rooms (heated to 43°), a salt pool (heated to 38°) a Morrocoan-style Hamman and Outdoor Creekside Bathing, this is the perfect place to reward yourself with a few hours of relaxation.
It is almost impossible to find five-star resorts when traveling regionally – trust us, we look often! With that said, to find one that is so close to another luxury venue offering spa and bathing is a godsend.
