Overview

At Mountain View Massage we aim to fuse the best of Pampering Bliss Experience with Holistic Care individual service. We run a homely Day Spa relaxing environment in the beautiful wellness village of Hanmer Springs. In Jan 2015 we relocated to the beautiful premises launched as Vibrant Living Retreat (Previously known as Albergo Lodge B&B & Villa) which is located 88 Rippingale Rd. This is a 15-20 min walk from the hot pools or 5 min drive. We are right next door to Hanmer Springs only Animal Park which also has a great cafe. We recommend that our Day Spa clients take a dip in Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools pre-treatments if this is possible for maximum lasting benefit and value. We also run a wide range of great Wellness Retreats, Detox Retreats and Soulful Women's retreats from the beautiful and peaceful location of Vibrant Living Retreat. You might like to try out our weekly Yoga Classes or have your own private class with our qualified instructor followed by a massage. We offer Spa Escape Packages, Girls Escape Packages and longer pampering packages. The sky is definitely not the limit here ! A place where magic happens ...

It does not look like a traditional modern spa, it's much more a family home but it's so nice that it's comfortable and not impersonal. I did the real beauty detox retreat day and it was an amazing experience. 7 hours for me starting with...More

The massage was a bit tentative, and could have been a little more involved in finding trouble spots and tight muscles. The presentation and interaction was polite and friendly, which was reassuring.

We were accommodated at the last minute. Booked a couple full body massage pleasant but room was terribly hot by late afternoon. Book before lunch if a hot day!
