Yarra Valley Dreaming
Some occasions call for absolute indulgence. You know the ones – your partner’s birthday or a special anniversary. If you’re going to pamper yourself, you want to know your money is well spent when you visit a day spa in the Yarra Valley or Dandenong Ranges.
The Dandenong Ranges and The Yarra Valley are popular tourist destinations with a large selection of restaurants, wineries and beautiful scenery. The area is popular for romantic couples and for weddings. One of the most popular ways to pamper yourself on a visit to the Dandenongs is to visit a day spa, followed by an intimate lunch date.
Day Spa Experiences In The Dandenongs
Not all day spas are the same. Having the right day spa treatment, combined with attentive staff that listen and respond to your needs, will leave you feeling renewed and with an appreciation for the magic that talented spa therapists and ancient spa treatments can bring.
Below are some of the treatments you can expect to find at a high quality day spa, Yarra Valley style:
Massage: Day spas offer massage in a range of styles, including relaxation, deep tissue, hot stone or Lomi Lomi.
Experience a massage for an hour or 80 minutes, or combined with bathing or other signature rituals.
Facials: Facials usually concentrate either on restoring hydration or improving the look of skin that has been neglected or is suffering the effects of stress and bad habits. The products used during a facial will vary. Some day spas use traditional ingredients like black sea mud to rejuvenate skin.
Pamper yourself with a luxurious Radiant Date Facial to soothe and rejuvenate tired skin.
Body Rituals: Body rituals take you on a journey through a range of treatments to enrich and pamper your whole skin and body. Traditionally rituals begin with opening the pores with bathing or steam room, followed by luxurious exfoliation and enriching the skin with luscious ingredients or mud.
Indulge in a traditional Hamman Beauty Ritual with exotic black olive soap, steam and shea butter for an opulent skin experience.
Hot Springs Bathing: Waters flowing from deep within volcanic rock contain rich mineral deposits that improve blood circulation, metabolism and bring about relaxation. There’s nothing like bathing in hot mineral springs or inside in a steamy, Turkish bath, to relax body and soul. Bathing at day spas vary between shared outdoor bathing, private indoor bathing and private timber hot tubs.

These packages are perfect for a special anniversary or birthday celebration.
