If you're partial to a soothing dip in some steamy natural hot springs, it looks like you'll soon have another local destination to add to your pamper hit-list. The Mornington Peninsula is set to score another premium wellness hub next year, with the launch of Alba Thermal Springs & Spa. The expansive bathing retreat is on track to open to the public in June 2022.

Located just a stone's throw from the long-running Peninsula Hot Springs, Alba is vying to become the state's "most sought-after bathing and wellness experience". It's set to deliver a suite of luxurious offerings within a low-impact development that remains sensitive to the natural environment. Spread across a generous 15 hectares of natural bushland, the property is expected to feature 25 pools, a series of treatment rooms and various other experiences across a mix of indoor, outdoor and open-air spaces.

The design of those spaces comes courtesy of landscape architects Mala Studio and award-winning architectural design firm Hayball — the same one behind Brisbane's West Village and Library at The Dock in Melbourne's Docklands. Expect lofty, light-filled structures with windows onto idyllic views that celebrates the property's "unique surrounds". Both Mala Studio and Hayball have posted recent progress shots of the build to their Instagram accounts if you want to take a sticky beak.
