The Salus Day Spa was voted Australia's Best Spa/Health Retreat in the Gourmet Traveller Travel Awards. The boutique spa is nestled amongst the lush gardens of the Lake House hotel; which also includes an award winning restaurant.
The state-of-the-art Spa designed with blond wood and splashes of Tiffany blue, is surrounded by waterfall fed streams and offers nine treatment areas over three levels.
Start with a hot mineral water spa. The deep tub is prepared with 100% pure mineral water from a specially selected nearby spring. Guests sit shoulder deep in the effervescent water and look out through the treetops to the lake shore below.
Next try a massage; choose from relaxation, deep tissue or perhaps remedial with one of the exceptional therapists.
Indulge in a blissful Elemis treatment; an advanced performance facial, lime and ginger salt exfoliation or body wrap in the unique thermal steam and vichy cocoon.
The Hydrostorm is a perfect treatment for two people to share; incorporating vertical vichy, Swiss shower, colour therapy, steam and aromatherapy.
Large expanses of glass offer views to the lake shore, stream and cool fern gully. Outdoor balconies and sunlit lounges provide a lovely setting to enjoy a selection of spa cuisine and herbal teas.
In a region that boasts the largest concentration of naturally occurring mineral springs in Australia, Lake House Salus Mineral and Spring Water is available for guests to drink on site.
