Neighbourhood: Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Little gem located in narrow Melbourne alleyway.. Amaaazing massage/treatment, just enough pressure to loosen my shoulder knots and sooo relaxing at the same time .. Honami was fantastic !!

For Melbourne visitors like us, who wanted to break up the food, shopping and Melbourne sights, Highly recommended if you just want a good massage, spoil a (fussy 😉) husband and avoid the fancy spa costs (and I’ve been to a few) !

Tip: For 2.5hrs of bliss ..
Try the perfect harmony package - foot massage (30min) , hot stone body massage(90min) with shiatsu head massage (30min) - Great value for
amazing treatment, We’ll be back !

Booked my first Japanese Shiatsu here and it was really interesting & certainly relaxing. Never had a massage over clothes before but it was very relaxing. Wish I'd certainly had it at the beginning of my holiday rather than towards the end. Would recommend.

This day spa excels! The staff are pleasant and go the extra mile. Best massage and body wrap. I visited with 2 friends and we all had the 2 and 1/2 hour massage, body wrap and foot massage. We all agreed it was the best spa experience we have had l. Will visit again! Thank you Sakura

My husband and I had a couples treatment yesterday. Foot Treatment & Massage 30 min, Relaxation 60 min, and Spa Facial Treatment 60 min. Best spa treatment I have had. So relaxing and the staff were amazing. The products used in the facial were high quality. Will definitely be back. Thank you Sakura Lounge for an amazing morning!

For a number of years my friend and I have travelled to Melbourne for a girls getaway and we always book a massage with Sakura Lounge which never disappoints. Our visit to Sakura is always a holiday highlight. Once again last week we had the pleasure of visiting and started with a 30 minute foot massage followed by a 60 minute relaxation massage - it was pure bliss. We have previously tried a couple of the offered packages which were amazing and this time we just requested our own blend which Sakura were happy to provide. The booking process is always very friendly and professional and the experience is very good value for money.
This is definitely a little hidden gem in Melbourne. Highly Recommend.

We have been coming here for a number of years and it is still fantastic. It’s not a new clinical looking place. It has character and the staff are very quiet. You may want to ensure you are booked in the main building upstairs as it’s quieter and aesthetically looks better. They have high caps for private health insurance so you end up paying only about $30 for 1hr remedial massage as you will need to book into a remedial massage to qualify for it. It’s the same as a normal massage.

Booked in for the wonderful “head to toe package” while on holidays. This was a 2.5
Hour session including a half hour foot / reflexology treatment withers a sweet rice cake. Then there was an hour full body shiatsu
Massage,followed by another hour facial.
Both of my beautiful Japanese therapists where highly skilled and attentive to my needs. The atmosphere in the spa was amazing, feeling very authentic of Japanese spa culture. I am extremely happy with my $167 spend. Now my holiday is complete!

My wife and I booked a one hour relaxing massage as we were staying in a nearby hotel and the reviews were very good.

It was our first Japanese massage so it was a surprise to be on the floor rather than a raised massage table, but it was fine. The massage itself was very good, however our relaxation was disturbed by chatter from other customers and staff walking noisily passed our rooms.

Also, unfortunately, it was obviously bin emptying day and the bin lorry arrived dire tou outside of our room when we had about 10 minutes of our massage left ! We appreciate that this was beyond the spa's control however the noise in the Spa itself could be better managed

Had the Head to Toe package. Was fantastic! Even their hourly massage prices are quite reasonable for the 'spa' ambience of the place. Thoroughly enjoyed the Shiatsu massage.

This place used to be amazing.... the girls fantastic not sure what has happened here but it has sadly gone downhill.
We had our massages upstairs which is fine we often go up there.
Having our massage was far from just rubbing oil in...
The therapist kept coughing GREAT...
We were serviced water in a dirty glass ...
We could see though the cracks of the doors the girls didn’t change the towels just fixed them up...
Hmmmm used to be the best place to go to every time we’re in Melbourne now not so sure
BETTER PICK YOUR GAME BACK UP!
