contemporary eco-lodges, massage pods & relaxation lounge coming in 2024
Written by Jane
The next part of the Peninsula Hot Springs vision is coming to life with an even greater selection of immersive wellness experiences on the horizon. Think: eco lodges, outdoor massage pods, a new relaxation lounge and an undercover Amphitheatre cafe.
These exciting projects will be possible thanks to a $3.3m investment from the Regional Tourism Infrastructure Fund (RTIF), which was announced on-site today by the Hon Steve Dimopoulos MP, Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events.
Our three new eco lodges will each include a master suite with a 60 square metre sitting room that opens out onto its own garden — complete with a private hot spring bathing pool — plus split-system heating and cooling, wifi, room service, a mini bar, music player and more. Unlike our premium glamping tents, which are reserved for adults, our eco lodge accommodation will be available for the whole family.
We’ll also be creating three freestanding massage pods, nestled near the accommodation village, that will provide guests with a unique and deeply tranquil spa experience. These pods will invite guests to better connect to self while immersed in the enchantment of the natural world.
In the Spa Dreaming Centre, guests will be able to rest, indulge in gourmet food and drink and enjoy stunning views over the treetops in the deluxe setting of the new sleep and relaxation lounge. The lounge will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week — which makes it ideal for Moonlit Bathing guests — and can accommodate up to 16 adults at a time. It can also be privately hired for events such as wellness workshops, educational talks and musical performances.
Over in the Bath House, we’re enhancing our Amphitheatre cafe by transforming it into an undercover dining space where day visitors and event guests can delight in our nourishing food and drink offerings while shielded from the elements. The new cafe area will also include a separate dining room with views over the Amphitheatre stage, where we regularly host arts, culture and entertainment events. This dining room will also be available to hire for groups of up to 20.
We’re immensely grateful to the state government for this funding, which will help deepen our commitment to our wellness pillars — particularly sleep, relaxation, nutrition and education — attract visitors to our region and create over 200 employment opportunities in our community.
