After a Covid-related hiatus, Victoria’s steamy Peninsula Hot Springs has reopened, so you can take a post-lockdown plunge in one of its heated mineral pools.
But the Mornington Peninsula’s primo relaxation destination, which underwent a $13-million expansion in 2018, is adding two new experiences to its roster.
From December 1, you’ll be able to stay overnight in one of 10 new, ultra-luxe glamping tents dotted around the property. And prepare to soak under the stars – for the first time there’ll be 24/7 bathing.
Your average glamping tents, these are not. Each one is kitted out with thermally heated polished-concrete floors; a private deck; a generously sized ensuite; a king-sized bed (with luxurious linen); and a walk-in robe.
Also included in your stay is round-the-clock bathing. So, after hopping between dozens of geothermal pools – at any time of day or night – all you need to do is slip on your robe and stroll back over the bridge to your glamp station.
Night-time swims won’t just be for glampers, though. Also from December 1, night owls will be able to book in for a session from 11pm onwards.
The Peninsula Hot Springs also has spa treatments; wellness experiences such as body-clay rituals, yoga classes and guided meditations; and an on-site restaurant and cafe.
Glamping and 24/7 bathing launch on December 1. Glamping packages start at $650 a night for two people. Book online.
