Deep Blue Hotel

At first glance Deep Blue Hotel seems like a traditional hotel. However, once you take a step inside, your confusion will soon turn into a relief as you’re welcome to the birthplace of one of Victoria’s best natural hot springs. Deep Blue Hotel features a swimming pool, infrared sauna, day spa, a salt room, an indoor bathhouse, a natural hot spring sanctuary and onsite restaurant led by experienced chefs. With plenty to see and do, we recommend opting for one of their morning Hot Springs Sanctuary sessions which includes access to their geothermal rock pools, sensory caves and cold plunge pools.
