Escape the hustle with a jaunt out to the Yarra Ranges. Just over an hour away from the city lies Japanese Mountain Retreat in Montrose, a luxurious mineral hot springs haven boasting a series of fully private outdoor mineral pools, meaning you won't have to share your soak with any strangers.

There's a variety of these romantic, secluded private spaces available to book (for one couple at a time), featuring backdrops like zen Japanese-style gardens and leafy rock pool grottos. What's more, they're open until 9pm, primed for a spot of romantic bathing under the stars.

There's also an opulent Roman-style bathhouse for those who prefer an indoor dip, and a range of add-on dining experiences available to amp up any visit. You can even stay the night, with a variety of pamper-filled accommodation packages on offer.
