Coming Soon: South Yarra's Soak Bathhouse Is Designed for Self-Care Catch-Ups with Mates

Unlike most day spas in Melbourne, Soak encourages guests to chat with mates and fellow self-care seekers.

We're already seriously spoilt for choice when it comes to standout Melbourne day spas, but it still doesn't seem like we have enough. Some of the most popular self-care havens have months-long waiting lists, and even the city's two new private wellness clubs booked out well before construction was completed. Clearly, we're all stressed out and in great need of calm.

Enter Soak Bathhouse, the Gold Coast-born day spa chain that's set to open an enormous wellness paradise in South Yarra later this year. This will be Soak's first Melbourne site but fourth overall — with another already open in Brisbane, and one slated to launch in Bondi very soon.

The new 700-square-metre spa is part of the $100 million Alfasi Development — located just behind Chapel Street — and will house a huge array of wellness amenities. Think: large mineral pools, hot spas, a dry cedarwood sauna, a steam room and cold plunge pools, all set in space filled with verdant greenery. Private infrared saunas, LED facials and full-body massages are also on the menu.

Like its other locations, Soak's upcoming South Yarra site has a strong focus on socialising. You can come here for a solo retreat, but it is mostly designed for self-care catch-ups with mates. This means that chatting is welcome, and the spa won't be silent.

"Our goal is to provide a welcoming space where people can come together, relax, and build meaningful connections. Whether it's a solo visit to unwind after a long day or a social outing with friends, Soak Bathhouse makes wellness easy and offers a versatile environment that caters to various wellness needs," comments Co-Founder Niki Dean.

Melbourne spas that encourage socialising are hard to find, making Soak Bathhouse South Yarra a wellness destination with a difference.
