Winner at the prestigious Victorian Tourism Awards, Australia’s renowned Japanese guesthouse is an indulgent retreat featuring traditional 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” region, Shizuka Ryokan is fully authentic in every detail including its architecture, furnishings and landscaping.
More important however is the genuine and warm hospitality of the Japanese and local hosts, offering generous and personalised service to each and every guest.
Whilst highly traditional, Shizuka Ryokan also caters for common creature comforts such as the cosy lounges by the open fireplace, central hydronic heating and air conditioning – all 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 tranquility.
Shizuka Ryokan is also a unique function 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.
We had such a lovely & relaxing time. What a wonderful oasis that’s only 1.5 hrs from Melbourne. What a way to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary.
A relaxing and beautiful time here in this paradise! Thank you!
