About
At Mountain View Massage Day Spa we aim to fuse the best of Pampering Bliss Experience with Holistic Care individual service. We run a homely Day Spa relaxing environment in the beautiful wellness village of Hanmer Springs. In Jan 2015 we relocated to the beautiful premises launched as Vibrant Living Retreat which is located 88 Rippingale Rd. This is a 15-20 min walk from the hot pools or 5 min drive. We are right next door to Hanmer Springs only Animal Park which also has a great cafe. We recommend that our Day Spa clients take a dip in Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools pre-treatments if this is possible for maximum lasting benefit and value. We also run a wide range of great Wellness Retreats from Vibrant Living Retreat. We offer Spa Escape Packages, Girls Escape Packages and longer pampering packages. The sky is definitely not the limit here ! A place where magic happens ...

Treat your body, treat your mind, treat your soul. A beautiful experience tailor made to suit your needs whether it be healing, or pure relaxation you require. I wouldn’t book anywhere else in the area. This visit was my second time here and I look forward to my next visit soon. Experienced, qualified staff who help make you feel extremely relaxed.

What a find! After our usual place in Hanmer was fully booked I came across Mountain View on Google and with high reviews we decided to give it a try. We booked in for a couples massage and it was fantastic - they listened to our needs and tailored their service. Afterwards we got a delicious piece of raw slice with a glass of water. We will be back, thank you!

I haven't had that many massages before, often because I haven't felt like I received much from them. This was a gift from my partner, and we were in Hanmer for another event. Mary-Jo worked wonders, I wasn't expecting such an experience. Her intuitive style was very apparent, as she made her way around the muscles. This was the first time I walked out of a massage wanting more. I highly recommend it, I will do it again.

During the last few years I had booked massages at Mountain View Retreat approx every 6mnths, so using their website I booked two 2hour massages for myself & adult daughter, however it turned out that the owner had not updated the website & it was an old price showing which she would not honour. I understand it is illegal not to honour an advertised price, however I did not want to make too much of an issue in fear of a poor massage. I should have stood my ground as it was the worse massage I have ever had from any massage therapist. I wouldn't call it a massage, it was a light fairy rub down with only a few techniques repeated over & over & over again! in spite of my request for a deep tissue massage for my back, neck & shoulders and a little less pressure for the rest of my body. In the past I have experienced good massages from Mountain View however after this experience I will never return here again.

I had a one hour massage at Mountain View Day Spa. It was the best massage I’ve ever had- super relaxing and my therapist was great. I was late getting in contact one weekend and Mary Jo was amazing at accommodating me and fitting me in at late notice. Thanks again!!

My wife and I have a massage here everytime we go to Hanmer and it is always excellent. It is more like a retreat and not a commercial-style operation like you find in the main village. We both thouroughly enjoyed this latest massage. Awesome!

I was traveling in New Zealand with two of my girlfriends. We booked a massage together at Mountain View massage. I had the best massage ever. They were great and really made the experience wonderful. If you have time, try to book a restorative yoga session. We couldn’t make that but wished we could have.

Was a delight staying at mountain view after the 120 km bicycle ride down from St Arnaud. The room was very comfortable, food was superb, the massage just what I needed, and I enjoyed the company of Mary Jo and Steve. Was even able to wash my bike :-) Will return another time with my wife as it was such a pleasant experience. Highly recommended!

I brought a deal of grab one for a nights accomodation with shared bathroom massages and pool passes for $199. Well my husband and I went last weekend and were very disappointed. It's advertising was very misleading when we got there we discovered it was somebody's house. Our room was a bedroom with simply a bed in it bathroom was right beside it you could hear any door in the house shut we felt so uncomfortable and the fact there wasn't really anywhere we could sit too enjoy some quality time away along with feeling like we had to whisper in the room made us decide not to stay. We had our massages which we'd booked for just after our arrival. Even the massage wasn't that good to what I normally get they didn't really do anything for me. They didn't even get any knots out it was just like someone rubbing up and down on your back. Needless to say I was bitterly disappointed and felt totally ripped off. Unless you don't mind staying in just a bedroom at someone's else I wouldn't stay here. Good way for them to pay the mortgage with how much they charge.

I booked a 2 hour treatment for my 40th birthday for a treat and boy was I disappointed. I was not greeted, was called the wrong name, they didn't know what treatment I was there for, they didn't even read my the medical details form (about allergies to skin products, medications, injuries etc) and the treating therapist was not the anticipated therapist. It was not nurturing, it was not blissful and was a complete waste of my time and money. I felt like I was at a massage factory in an overpriced resort town. I wish I had followed my intuition and got up and left at the beginning. I contacted the business after my experience to let them know how it was but they never got back to me which was rather surprising. If you chooses to go here, ensure you have very low expectations and then maybe you will enjoy it.
