Why a rainy day is the perfect time to visit the hot springs

Picture this: it’s rainy 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 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.

Inclement weather is also a great excuse to book yourself in for a day of pampering in our Spa Dreaming Centre. From mudwraps and salt scrubs to facials and relaxation massages, rainy weather presents the perfect opportunity to spend the day combining geothermal bathing with a treatment and relaxing with a cup of herbal tea in one of our hanging egg chairs.

If you’d like to hear more about visiting Peninsula Hot Springs in the rain, feel free to call our Reservations team on (03) 5950 8777, between 9am-5pm daily.
