Springs Retreat Spa wins at Australasian Awards

Springs Retreat Spa wins at Australasian Awards
September 12, 2008

Victorian operators netted a total of five awards at the recent Australasian Spa Association (ASpa) Spas of Excellence awards which recognise excellence in service delivery in the spa, health and wellness industry.

The Mineral Spa at Peppers Springs Retreat dominated the wins for Victoria, taking three highly coveted awards of Best Hotel Spa, Best Day Spa (Rural) and the Spa Life magazine's Readers Choice Award for Best Destination Spa and reinforcing Hepburn Springs and the Daylesford Macedon Ranges region as Australia's leading spa tourism destination.

The awards add to a long list of accolades for Mineral Spa, one of Hepburn Springs' most renowned destination spas, known for its contemporary, environment, holistic approach and professionalism of their staff.

Other Victoria operators that won awards on the night include: Spa Dreamtime, located at the St Kilda Sea Baths, which won Best Day Spa (Urban) 2008; and Peace and Quiet, a wellbeing centre in Ballarat which won Employer of Choice 2008.

The potential for spas is explored in a feature in the September/October 2008 issue of Australasian Leisure Management.
