This retreat is just that, a place to retreat from everyday life, relax and enjoy the pampering. The staff could not do enough for us and every treatment was excellent. We stayed in the Bali accommodation and it was isolated, quiet and felt like we had been transported to Bali. The set menu dinner exceeded expectations and we really enjoyed... More

I visited Japanese Mountain retreat with my partner in July in hopes to have a good time. My experience included a 1 hour bath, 1 hour massage and a lunch. I was very disappointed with the lunch they offered us. I advised the waitress of my dietary requirements before we sat at the lunch table and she explained to me... More

My wife and I went to the Japanese Mountain Retreat to "get away" for a night. After a pleasant drive we arrived and the experience started - great service, beautiful surrounds, great Onsen Spa followed by a wonderful massage. Well and truly relaxed we had a short break and then had a wonderful meal. The facilities were clean, the staff... More

My wife and I went for a special occasion and it truly exceeded our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful experience staying in the Balinese retreat set in a beautiful tropical garden and luxuriated in the Roman bathhouse and Spa De Marrakech. We are full of praise for the friendly staff, quality of the amenities, the service and food. It... More

It's hidden up in Montrose and is just a lovely place to soak away all your weeks stresses. Clean private and well priced you can go as a couple or share with friends. Awesome in winter and the food and massages are great too. I recommend a Thursday its not busy and you get to experience everything they offer.

Wonderful retreat. Pleasant drive from Melbourne or nearby Olinda hills. Spent a half day at the Spa de Marrakech with my loving wife. The Aromatherapy massage session was fantastic. Caitlin was a great host. Immaculate gardens, teahouse and pools. Bookings are essential.

My wife and I decided in the morning over the Easter weekend to see if we could find place that we could have a massage treatment combined with a sauna and spa included. To our surprise and delight we found Spa Marrakech, which is part of the Japanese Mountain Retreat facility. We cannot recommend this place highly enough. It was... More

The place was clean yes, grounds beautiful yes spa looks great too but service is a bit disorganised, haphazard and quite funny really and decor very 1990s. Meal times can be a bit awkward in the dining area. Granted they are definitely trying with the food but it is on the whole average. If you like 3 star resorts overseas... More

We loved this sanctuary in Melbourne's backyard, the attention to detail and surrounds makes the place feel a world away. A wonderful place to reconnect with nature and to relax. Great for mind, body and spirit. The service was great, food was lovely and Spa treatments were wonderful. Highly recommended!
