2013 winner at the prestigious Victorian Tourism Awards and three-time winner of the Hepburn Regional Tourism Award, Australia’s renowned Japanese guesthouse is an indulgent retreat featuring traditional yet comfortable accommodation, delicious lovingly-prepared cuisine, luxurious spa treats as well as holistic wellness and health treatments.
Set amid tranquil bushland in central Victoria’s picturesque “spa country”, Shizuka Ryokan is fully authentic in every detail including its architecture, furnishings and gardens.
More important however is the genuine and warm hospitality of the Japanese and local hosts, offering generous and personalised service including the signature banquet dinner.
Whilst highly traditional, Shizuka Ryokan also caters for common creature comforts which are provided in a truly stylish environment.
Couples, singles and small groups come to the inn to relax, indulge, rejuvenate and immerse in the romance and tranquillity.
Shizuka Ryokan is also a unique venue for small community and corporate groups to conduct retreats, workshops and meetings.
Located just 75 minutes from Melbourne in Hepburn Springs near Daylesford, it’s a small piece of Japan that’s close to home.
For Aussies, that’s much more accessible than the long flight to Kyoto.
