I took 30 minute drive out of Melbourne to get away and explore one of the western suburbs' most exclusive day spas set in the grounds of the historic Werribee Mansion. The Mansion Hotel & Spa is a wellbeing centre set up for pure relaxation with a choice of treatments, including use of the indoor pool, gym and steam room.
I booked myself in mid week for an hour relaxation massage which was long over due. After the relaxation treatment I had access to the steam room, personalised locker and the indoor swimming pool all to myself: the bonus of booking during the week.
This was my mid week pamper, a chance to relax with a hot herbal tea in one hand and magazine in the other. I had a few hours to engage in some mindfulness whilst waiting for the traffic to die down. An early dinner at Joseph's restaurant was the perfect way to end a perfect day.
So, if you're after an indulgent facial, or a unique spa experience in a beautifully tiled hammam, add a glass of French champagne or chocolate coated strawberries for optional enhancements. The spa menu is designed to spoil and pamper – inside and out.
