This new spa is expected to open in winter next year. Set in Fingal, about an hour away from Melbourne, this spa will offer 22 single and/or double spa treatment studios. There will be a separate manicure and pedicure lounge, as well as a spacious relaxation lounge that will overlook the extensive native gardens and water features.

Throughout the surrounding areas, there will be 31 bathing pools of varying sizes. These will include geothermal pools, cold plunge pools and herbal-infused botanical pools.

There will be a vast menu of spa services that will help you rest, relax and return to Melbourne feeling better than ever.

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. It will be a 120-seat restaurant, with a culinary program created by the well-known chef, Karen Martini.

“I’m so excited to be partnering with Alba on this project,” Martini said. “The all-day menu I am creating will feature fresh, wholesome dishes with modern Mediterranean influences.”

Expect wholesome poke bowls and dishes derived from the kitchen garden. There will be plenty of fresh herbs, crisp vegetables and lean meats to try.

“We will also be supporting local growers and suppliers, seeking out seasonal produce from sustainable farming practices, and choosing organically-grown wherever possible,” said Martini.


To drink, there will be coffee, local tea blends, and brewed and fermented beverages. A wine list will be curated and drawn from Mornington Peninsula’s many local vineyards.

The food will be healthy, vibrant and plant-driven. Of course, those with dietary requirements will be catered for.

Designed by Alba’s architects, Hayball, this restaurant will seat 80 people inside and 40 outdoors.

“The setting for Thyme with its indoor and rooftop terrace dining is simply spectacular, with patrons able to enjoy restful scenery by day and sunsets over the Peninsula in the evening,” said Alba’s General Manager, Craig Dodd. “And in appointing a chef of Karen’s experience and stature – she was recently hailed as a food Legend by the 2021 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival – the food will be a perfect match for the outlook and for our own holistic wellness ethos.”

Thyme will be open from 7:30am to 9:00pm every day for spa guests.
