My Luxury Weekend Escape - Mansion Hotel & Spa
Thanks for tuning in to read about my recent weekend escape to the Mansion Hotel & Spa, in celebration of my birthday! For those of you who do not know me personally, should know that I especially LOVE to celebrate my birthday.
Mansion Hotel & Spa is a stunning 5 star luxury hotel located in the western suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, just 40 minutes from the CBD. This elegant property is particularly well known for hosting the most gorgeous weddings & events which captures a truely romantic and intimate setting. I've wanted to make a weekend at the Mansion for some time now and thought a nice quiet and relaxing pamper weekend away would be just perfect at the Mansion. After all who doesn't enjoy a little self indulgence on their birthday? :)
The property is set on a massive 10 acres with the most beautiful gardens, its so nice to walk around and unwind from a busy work week. Here are some snaps of the grand property.
My Husband and I booked the "Romance Package" staying in a Junior Suite offering us a welcome gift of French Champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries on arrival, breakfast in bed and late check out at 1:00 pm. The Junior Suite's are the "Rolls Royce" of rooms providing grand views of the property with very spacious rooms and large soaking tubs. If you plan on spending a weekend away relaxing and doing just that, I would highly recommend booking the Junior Suite, all you need is right here. This really is perfect for a romantic "express" getaway. :)
I booked the Refresh Ritual spa package which included a 1 hour relaxation massage and a 30 minute Waterlily spa facial. If your an organic angel like me you'll enjoy the Waterlily product range derived from all natural organic ingredients. Vicky was my massage therapist and I do have to make special mention of her. Vicky is a mature lady who is genuinely passionate about her profession and she has a very good product knowledge. Vicky was highly personable, softly spoken and respected my preferred massage technique which all added to a positive spa experience. Spa time went too quick for me, next time I will look at a 2 - 3 hour spa package for some serious relaxation therapy. :)
We dined at Joseph's Restaurant and Bar located on-site at the hotel; the dishes served were of a respectable size, fresh with a good selection from the menu. Joseph's restaurant is so peaceful and quiet, you can enjoy a nice conversation at length without being ushered off your table in a hurry. I loved the peaceful vibe!
I hope I have inspired you to take some time out and invest in some personal health and well-being, god knows we all need it! If you have the time, please leave a comment and let me know what you thought? You can also like or share with your friends to spread the relaxation love. Until next time my friends..........
