Launching late October, Sorrento's new high-end thermal bathhouse, spa and wellness centre will boast one of the largest saunas in the southern hemisphere.
September 20, 2022
If you've got a penchant for being pampered, bathing in thermal waters and booking in a bit of spa time to take the weight off your shoulders (literally) — what a time to be alive. The Mornington Peninsula's Alba Thermal Springs and Spa is mere weeks from opening, the long-awaited Metung Hot Springs is now taking bookings and — what's this? We're getting yet another wellness destination, with Aurora Spa & Bathhouse set to open its doors within The Continental Sorrento next month.
Slated to launch in late October, the new flagship venue from Aurora Spa Group takes the form of a luxe thermal bathhouse, spa and wellness centre, offering a contemporary take on ancient European water therapies.
Here, award-winning design studio Woods Baggot (W Melbourne, Barlow) have created a stylish coastal-inspired sanctuary filled with neutral tones, sandy terrazzo tile and oak panelling, aligning to their design notes in the adjacent hotel.
A one-stop-shop for healing, soothing and regeneration, Aurora Spa & Bathhouse boasts a suite of cutting-edge facilities, including a Nordic-style sauna space featuring one of the largest saunas in the southern hemisphere.
Clocking in at 1000 square metres and with space for 60 visitors at a time, the bathhouse will be home to four interconnecting hydro-therapy pools, as well as an aromatherapy steam room, a halotherapy (a treatment that involves breathing in salty air) suite, a glacial mist chamber and sensory showers.
Alternatively, make a date with Aurora's spa to enjoy features like a magnesium float room, an apothecary station for whipping up custom salt blends, and eight dedicated treatment rooms offering a wide range of rituals and therapies.
Find Aurora Spa & Bathhouse in The Continental Sorrento, 23 Constitution Hill Road, Sorrento, from late October. We'll share more details as they drop.
