Spring has arrived on the Mornington Peninsula.
And with nature’s seasonal renewal in full stride, there’s an invigorating sense of optimism in the air.
As temperatures slowly climb across the Peninsula and the gardens start to bloom, our team is working behind the scenes, crafting indoor and outdoor spa treatments designed to rebalance and rejuvenate.
When we open our gates next winter, our guests will be hosted in more than 20 architect-designed treatment spaces, Vichy suites, steam rooms and private baths; be pampered in a dedicated manicure and pedicure area, and luxuriate in a spacious relaxation lounge overlooking our extensive native gardens and stunning water features and thermal pools.
We look forward to unveiling our full spa treatment menu in the coming months. In the meantime, we are delighted to share news of our partnership with Vanessa Megan and Aika Wellness – both Australian-owned and operated skincare brands. Their products will be used in a unique menu of restorative and transformational face and body treatments.
Our vision to create a multi-sensory spa experience is coming to life, and we look forward to welcoming you.
Vanessa Megan and Aika Wellness are Australian success stories. Both brands are helmed by entrepreneurial women, and are know and lauded for their locally-made products – all certified organic, vegan and cruelty-free – that combine natural botanicals with transformational therapeutics.
Alba’s spa team has been working closely with Vanessa Megan and Aika Wellness to create a comprehensive menu of facial and body treatments that are in harmony with our own wellness ethos.
Alba guests will be able to enjoy a special selection of Vanessa Megan treatments and rituals that pamper and purify, repair and rejuvenate.
Treatments will feature the brand’s innovative Naturaceutical™ formulations, which use native wild-harvested Australian botanicals such as finger limes, native plums and banksia, combined with natural peptides, colloidal silver, copper and gold, to give clinically proven results.
Aika Wellness body treatments are based in Ayurveda, the traditional healing system in India and Sri Lanka dating back 5,000 years, and are created to nourish the body, mind, and soul.
Aika will be offering Alba guests a range of richly pigmented, holistic body products and calming rituals based on each of the three ‘doshas’ – vata, pitta and kapha – to create a synergy between sensuous skin care and aromatherapy.
We will be sharing more details of our springs and spa experiences soon with bookings opening in April 2022. Thank you for joining us on this opening journey. Meanwhile, stay safe and stay well.
