A roundup of the best day spas Melbourne simply would not be complete without mention of the amazing Japanese bathhouse! This is the perfect place to go during COVID-19 when you are missing travelling as you will feel as though you transported automatically to Japan without actually having to travel there, which is pretty cool!

This bathhouse is also known as Ofuroya but as this was quite tricky for Aussies, they are quite happy to be referred to as The Japanese Bathhouse. With a name like Ofuroya you know its authentic!

This bathhouse has been a fan fav of Melbourne locals for almost 20 years as it was established all the way back in 1999.

When we say this bathhouse is authentic, it really is – they give you a Japanese washcloth to use and also a Yukata pyjamas to wear after you are dry.

Please note, if you are visiting as a couple, you are not able to bath together as the bathhouse in traditional Japanese style is gender-segregated but there is a common area where men and women can mingle after.

Best Day Spas in Melbourne

So that concludes our roundup of the best day spa facilities in Melbourne. We have searched the internet and also included the absolute best of the best of Melbourne spas in our guide.

If you are planning on visiting a spa anywhere in the world, the #1 thing to consider is cleanliness as spas are a breeding ground for infection so it is very important that carefully do your research to ensure that the spas you are going to are very reputable and well cleaned.

Of course, another thing you will want in a spa is awesome facilities – spas are expensive and there is nothing worse than forking out your hard earned money on some experience that is not worthwhile.

We believe these spas fit those criteria so you really can’t go wrong with any of the above Melbourne spas.

If you are looking for a more intimate and private experience, you might alternatively like to book a spa hotel in Melbourne for you and your SO. Spa hotels are fabulous because they have a jacuzzi in the room and you can use it 24/7 so it is not subject to opening hours. Also many of the Spa Hotels in Melbourne also have day spa facilities that you can visit while you are there so it is a win win. Plus many have fabulous restaurants, and bars to grab a drink or coffee and unwind for a minute after a hard day of, err, unwinding.
