The Blue Mountains Japanese Bath House Delivers the Pampering we all Need Right Now
- Parents Only
We don’t know about you but after a topsy turvy couple of years, we’re craving a bit of relaxation and a moment away from the chaos, and the Japanese Bath House Sydney is the ticket to pure zen and relaxation.
After closing due to lockdown, the Blue Mountains' famed Japanese Bath House reopened for business in November 2021 and we couldn’t be more excited to bring on the zen!
Sparadise Japanese Bath House in the Blue Mountains
Also referred to as the Japanese Sparadise, the Japanese Bath House is located in the tranquil surrounds of South Bowenfels in the Blue Mountains, this traditional Japanese Sento brings the centuries-old ritual of cleansing the mind and body through bathing, to our very own backyard.
Soak Away Your Worries in the Japanese Bath House
At the Japanese Bath House, this is truly a choose-your-own-calming adventure with a host of services available for guests to experience.
Gain entry to their bathhouse for either a three-hour session ($85) or an all-day pass ($160) and you’ll be able to access all their facilities at the beautiful Onsen ready for you to soak away your worries. You’ll be able to de-stress and relax in their outside Onsen, inside onsen and rest areas.
As is a tradition in Japan, these Onsens are open to the public, however, if you’re looking for something a bit more private you can also book a number of packages that allow you access to a secluded Buro bath for two. Packages start at $340 and are well worth the cost if you’re looking to treat someone special in your life (and yourself).
And Now for Some Spa Treatments
Once you’ve finished enjoying your time in the bathhouse be sure to book in for one of their many spa treatments to really kick the tranquillity into overdrive. You can choose from a number of different treatments including massages and aromatherapy facials.
After each treatment, guests will be given slippers and a mini Japanese towel to take home - the gift that keeps on giving. The treatment packages start at $195 and all include complimentary tea and three-hour access to the bathhouse to enjoy before or after you’ve finished being pampered.
Accommodation at the Japanese Bath House
While the drive from Sydney is only around two hours, it would be remiss of us not to tell you about the Japanese Bath House Sydney accommodation options, because why trek it home after a day of relaxing in the Onsen when you can keep the chill vibes going overnight?
Stay the night in a traditional Japanese inspired room that follows a simple and subtle interior aesthetic also known as Shibusa. The San Sui Kaku accommodation package starts at $960 per night for two people and includes a 60-minute massage (each) and an all-day bathhouse pass.
For those looking for more western-style dwellings, the Kitsho Kaku package starts at $780 for two people which includes a 60-minute massage (each) and an all-day bathhouse pass.
With ‘rejuvenate’, ‘relax’ and ‘recover’ the words on everyone’s lips right now, we suggest jumping over to the Japanese Bath House website to book in for your peaceful getaway and let the year that was 2021 wash away!
