Scrub your cares away

We all love a luxurious spa treatment, but imagine doing it amongst the snow gums in our beautiful Hotham environment? Now you can, with a purely outdoor treatment in the surrounds of nature.

Pekiri treatment: Your treatment begins with a warm footbath, full body exfoliation and cocooned by a layer of rich mineral mud followed by a ‘take me to another place’ scalp massage and hair treatment. ​Unwind even further with a full body massage and to finish your journey, a wellness bath awaits you. Select your custom soak from the dabble bar completing this ‘time to just be’ experience. Your body will slow, your mind will rest as your breath finds its natural rhythm.

Slowly emerge from the treatment in our wellness lounge with a local grazing platter and refreshing house made spritz from our amazing local vineyards.
