warm up this winter with a bathe
Who says winter means having to stay cooped up indoors?
We’re often asked what it’s like to bathe at the hot springs during the wintertime. The answer is that geothermal bathing is even more nourishing in the cold weather, when the temperature of the pools is in stark contrast to the crisp outdoor air.
Picture this: it’s 12 degrees outside. You’re submerged in a toasty 39-degree geothermal pool with your head above water, steam rising from the water’s surface as cool drops of rain fall onto your face and shoulders. The geothermal mineral water keeps you nice and warm while the rain provides a refreshing shower.
While the thought of rainy weather often brings to mind activities such as going to the movies or reading a book inside, Mornington Peninsula locals and hot springs staff often say rainy days are one of their favourite times to visit the hot springs.
As well as the sensory pleasure of bathing in the rain, there’s also the Turkish Hamam, Swedish sauna, Tibetan showers, bubble spa couch, hydrojet pool and plenty more – all designed to give you a luxurious experience while deepening your connection with nature. A rainy day doesn’t have to mean being cooped up inside.
We also recently launched a variety of wellness activities and day retreats to enhance your bathing experience.
Our wellness activities include a 45 minute workshop and Bath House bathing, the activities combine bathing in our healing waters, connecting with nature and a movement or mindfulness activity which creates the ultimate wellbeing experience. Explore our wellness activities including yoga, mat Pilates, Reformer Pilates, the invigorating powers of hot and cold therapy with our fire and ice experience or relax in a silk hammock as you move through nurturing poses in aerial yoga.
Sometimes we need to fully immerse ourselves in a new environment in order to truly retreat. Our day retreats offer the opportunity to be immersed in a world of wellbeing here at the hot springs – whether your intention is to feel relaxed, reinvigorated or refreshed. With three retreats to choose from you will be able to find the perfect journey for yourself. All of our wellness retreats include two wellness activities, Bath House bathing, lunch, a hot springs water bottle, towel, robe and locker hire.
