What to expect at Aurora, the Mornington Peninsula’s new sultry spa and bath, opening next month

First came the gigantic new public bar and beer garden. Then it was famed Melbourne chef Scott Pickett’s first regional fine-dining restaurant, Audrey’s, as well as the lavish late-night barlow. And what followed was an extravagant Intercontinental hotel.

The final piece of the puzzle at Conti in Sorrento, on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, is Aurora Spa & Bathhouse. It is due to open at the compound in late October, run by Aurora Spa Group, which until recently had a location in St Kilda in Melbourne’s southeast.

The spectacular 1000 square meter relaxation destination will accommodate 60 people at a time. Dive into four interconnecting hydrotherapy pools, starting with what has been dubbed the Daydream Pool. Or block out the world around you in a floating magnesium room.

Large format access members get special tables at popular restaurants, tickets to exclusive events, and discounts on food, coffee, branded deals and more.

There will also be a very large Nordic-inspired wood-covered sauna; an aromatherapy hammam; “sensory” showers; and a whole suite of halotherapy, which involves breathing air containing tiny particles of salt.

Another feature is the “Glacial Mist Room”. Located at an alpine temperature, it is a refined bathhouse version of the Finnish tradition of rolling in the snow after a sauna.

Plus, expect to find eight treatment rooms where you can relax alone or with a partner, and a store with a dedicated apothecary station where you can create your own blend of bath salts.

Behind the design is Woods Bagot, who was inspired by the area’s breathtaking coastline; think soft oak, sandy terrazzo and brass furniture.

Aurora Bath & Spahouse is scheduled to open at 23 Constitution Hill Road, Sorrentoend of October.
