Waldheim Alpine Spa – The Healing Power Of Nature

At Cradle Mountain Lodge, the healing power of nature is evident everywhere. From the quality of our clean, crisp, alpine air, to the natural ‘lungs’ of the surrounding bushland and heath, to the glacial lakes and icy streams that carve their way through the wilderness…the luxurious sanctuary of the Lodge blends seamlessly with our environment.

Nowhere is nature’s energy more apparent than at Waldheim Alpine Spa, our oasis of indulgent pampering and peace where guests can relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect with the environment and themselves. Nestled among towering King Billy Pines, a visit to the spa is a truly immersive experience, with Waldheim translating literally to ‘Forest Home.’  Breathtaking views of the surrounding wilderness and mountain springs are maximised by floor-to ceiling-glass providing a visual reminder of the unique beauty of the surrounding landscape.

VIP treatment from start to finish

Spa Manager, Shelly Forbes, and her experienced team of beauty and massage therapists thrive on attention to detail. They understand it’s the unexpected special touches that contribute to their guests overall spa experience, and delight in exceeding expectations.

A visit to Waldheim Alpine Spa starts with the warmest of welcomes. Guests are refreshed with herbal tea or iced water served by a big open fireplace, before changing into a cosy robe and slippers prior to  commencing their treatment.

With an expansive spa menu comprising an impressive range of skin treatments, body care, massage, and experience rituals, guests enjoy head-to-toe pampering using advanced skincare formulations and aromatic oils designed to take mind and body on an aromatic journey of the senses. “Our treatments cater to everyone, whether you’re seeking the escape of a relaxing massage, the nourishing experience of a signature facial, or the deeply immersive relaxation of an Experience Ritual, combining several of our most popular treatments,” says Shelly. “But for guests with specific needs, we’ll happily tailor treatments to accommodate unique and personalised requirements. It’s all part of our service.”

Unsurprisingly, one of Waldheim Alpine Spa’s most popular treatments is the Hiker’s Body Ritual, the perfect indulgence to recover from a day’s trekking and exploration. Available as a Singles Ritual or Couple’s Package it comprises a holistic combination of a body exfoliation, followed by a body massage and remineralising mud wrap, and culminating in an exquisite foot ritual, perfect for weary walkers.

Pay tribute to nature at The Sanctuary

Waldheim Alpine Spa’s dedicated therapeutic area, The Sanctuary, is a private retreat offering a steam room, sauna, large hot-tub and cool plunge pool, as well as a relaxation lounge. 

“Many guests choose to simply just relax in our private Sanctuary with a glass of bubbles and some nibbles. With unforgettable views of the dramatic Tasmanian Highlands as their backdrop, a visit to The Sanctuary is a blissfully serene indulgence,” says Shelly.

Romance, relaxation, and rejuvenation under one roof

With couples making up 70% of guests to Waldheim Alpine Spa, Couple’s Treatments and Packages are popular additions to any Cradle Mountain Lodge escape. “We love pampering newlyweds. Cradle Mountain Lodge is a very popular place to elope! We also have lots of babymooners, and honeymooners. It’s a real privilege to help make every couple’s intimate escape that little bit more special.”
