The White Spa and Onsen Retreat + Spa offers relaxing, revitalising and replenishing therapies for men and women, using vitamin-enriched botanicals, customised aromatic oil blends and restorative massage techniques. Recover and repair from a day on the mountain with their range of rejuvenating face, body and aqua therapies. Aromatic and enriching, the therapies use luxurious products inspired by the beauty and nature of Victoria’s high country.
Combining the best massage techniques from around the world, signature massages relieve aching muscles from a day on the mountain and restore balance and harmony to your body’s systems.
Moisture boosting, anti-ageing and deeply cleansing, facial therapies revitalise and calm the skin, combat dehydration, improve skin texture and counteract the signs of unbalanced, devitalised skin. Using vitamin-enriched botanicals, the spas’ products strengthen and restore your skin’s natural defences.

With a blend of aromatic oils customised to your needs, the cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating treatments available will soften and strengthen the skin, leaving you polished and primed.
Hand, foot and scalp treatments
Signature hand and arm exfoliation treatments prime the skin for the vitamin-enriched oils to be massaged deeply into the major channels of the arms and reflex points in the hands. The invigorating foot treatment includes a salt mineral soak and hot stone massage to activate reflexology points for the relief of fatigue, swelling and fluid retention.
Experience the botanical re-mineralising hair and scalp treatment to deeply nourish, repair and naturally condition with enriched salt minerals warmed and massaged into the scalp and hair.
