Shizuka Ryokan Japanese Country Spa & Wellness Retreat

The experience

Slip off your shoes and enter a world that is distinctly Japanese. Zen design, the hushed intimacy of rooms behind sliding shoji screens and ritualised routines soothe your mind and soul. In the Japanese spa, massage and private yoga and meditation guidance remove tension and show the way to places of beauty and peace.

Omotenashi is an all-encompassing word that represents Japanese hospitality, a little like welcoming you into one’s home and treating you warmly like a friend, not a stranger. Long familiar to Japanese travellers, Shizuka Ryokan brings this unique style of hospitality to Australia.
