Stretching out over a 15-hectare property, Alba Thermal Springs & Spa is a new peaceful destination for hardworking Melburnians. With a broad selection of spa services, spacious treatment rooms and indoor and outdoor thermal pools, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. On top of that, there’s also a spectacular restaurant, filled with fresh, seasonal produce. Bookings are now open.
Alba Thermal Springs & Spa
Set in Fingal, a 90 minute drive from Melbourne, this spa offers 31 pools of varying sizes. This includes geothermal pools, cold plunge pools and herbal-infused botanical pools. Some are peacefully private, while others offer a social purpose. Each one has been meticulously designed. Some are submerged in a flowering meadow, some are created as apertures to the sky, and others are cradled within waving grass.
In the higher reaches of the site, you’ll find The Hemisphere, which provides bathers with tranquil hidden gardens, a semi-enclosed geothermal pool, a cold plunge pool, and access to a steam room and sauna.
There’s 22 expansive spa treatment rooms to discover at Alba Thermal Springs & Spa. This includes a steam room, Vichy shower, and single or double massage rooms. There’s over 30 spa services to choose from, encompassing facial, body and water-based treatment.
There’s also a separate manicure and pedicure lounge, as well as a spacious relaxation lounge, featuring private booths and oversized day beds. This relaxation lounge overlooks the extensive native gardens.
Bathing in pools isn’t the only way to relax. Eating a good, wholesome meal will help you feel content too. Alba’s restaurant, Thyme, will help you do just that. This restaurant is situated on a terrace, with indoor and outdoor seating. Look across the pools to the native gardens and surrounding bushland, while dining on an all-day menu created by Australian chef Karen Martini.
Expect fresh and flavoursome dishes, with locally-sourced and seasonal produce. To drink, there’s coffee, herbal tea blends, local cold-pressed juices and signature cocktails. The wine list champions the Peninsula’s local vineyards, distilleries and breweries.
Thyme will be open from 7:00am to 9:30pm every day for spa guests, with last seating at 8:30pm.
