Experiencing the world of luxury spa treatments is no wild dream at the Waldheim Alpine Spa. Nestled amongst a World Heritage listed National Park is no wonder that the treatments here are almost as good as the natural beauty that surrounds the spa and indeed the flows across the mountains. The spa treatments here accompanied by delightful staff reflect the natural purity and pristine beauty of the Tasmanian wilderness.
So why wouldn’t you want to visit the Waldheim Alpine Spa?
Make No Mistake
Make a reservation for your treatment time. The Waldheim Alpine Spa is hugely popular with guests of Cradle Mountain Lodge and those weary walker legs from the hikers finishing up the Overland Trek. So time is rather exclusive here. Don’t make the mistake of trying to just walk in as you may just end up walking straight back out.
Once you’ve made the tough decision of which spa treatment to indulge in, have a confirmed booking then you’re on the highway to destination relaxation.
The next steps are pretty much guaranteed to see you having a wildly luxurious experience.
Time For Tea
And vital paperwork. This is probably the most stressful part of your spa experience. Sitting in a lovely waiting room, over looking the wildnerness of Tasmania and filling out a brief client profile. All whilst drinking herbal tea.
Ready to Robe
After the strenuous activity of completing paper work and drinking tea it’s a quick stop by the change rooms to start preparing for the ultimate in spa rituals. We’re really peeling away all the layers of stress here. Now the change rooms are gender specific and a spa attendant will walk you to the change room, ensuring that you have complete privacy. Each change room is complete with individual lockers where you’ll find the most sexy white robes and slippers. Spa level chic`!
Take A Moment To Reflect
Enjoy this brief moment of solitude. You can’t help but ponder all and none of life’s questions as you watch the towering King Billy pines trees sway in the wind and the water trickle on by. Before you know it your delightful spa attendant will be back to start your spa ritual.
Before you can count a kookaburra you’ll find yourself lost in a world of wild luxury so beautiful and rejuvenating that your senses will be left in wonder long after your journey here ends.
The Waldheim Alpine Spa Staff Are Superb
The spa itself is a warm and welcoming spa, hidden away behind the Cradle Mountain Lodge. The spa attendants took such exceptional care of both James and myself. Now as a regular spa attendee I am rather judgemental on my treatments. In most countries I’ve visited I’ve partaken in some level of massage or spa treatment. From 5 star hotels to the local happy hands massage centre down the road. James however was a first timer spa attendee. As the ever so caring and sharing girlfriend that I am I told him absolutely nothing of our treatment and in fact left it 100% up to the staff to choose which treatment they felt would be the best introduction for a newbie and also a fair representation of the services on offer. We indulged in a Rebalance Ritual – a 90 minute treatment incorporating a hot stone back massage, express facial, foot treatment and scalp treatment.
The staff were caring and professional therapists who had the utmost respect for our modesty (ok so I have no in this area), personal requirements and ensured that we were in a safe and healing environment at all times.
If you’re after a wildly luxurious spa treat then I’d highly recommended that you make bookings in advance by calling 03 6492 2133 or check out the full spa treatment menu at Waldheim Alpine Spa.
Between the spa treatments, honeycomb panacotta from the Highlander Restaurant and all the wombats I’m desperate to one day return to Cradle Mountain and do this all over again. Have you been before? Let us know in the comments below.

This spa looks heavenly. Anything where the feeling lasts beyond the treatment is a winner to me. Well, as well as anywhere with tea. Looks like a little piece of heaven!
That looks like an amazing experience! Love a good spa!!!
This looks like SUCH an incredible spa! I’m such a big fan (as is my husband). On my list for when I visit!
Make sure you book ahead!
This looks fabulous! Sadly my roadtrip in Tasmania didn’t get me here but next time I’ll certainly be tracking this place down! Looks like you had a wonderful time.
It was amazing! And worth the extra drive
I love a good pampering of any kind. This spa retreat looks like the perfect place for pampering. And like you’ve mentioned, great after a long hike. I can’t get enough of that view from the spa room!
This looks so amazing, pondering about how much you would have enjoyed. I need this spa so badly that I am going to give a treat to myself, whenever I get a chance.
A spa is always attractive and it gets better with such a setting. I have never experienced a spa amidst the jungles so it fascinates me even more. The paperwork does not seem to attractive though but I think the herbal tea will make that work too.
Cradle mountain has a spa? I did not know that when I was in Tassie a few years ago. Even though we didn’t do the trek around Cradle mountain, my sore feet and body would have loved the pampering after the hike around Wineglass beach. Hot stone back massage would have been ideal.
oh i love spas and this one looks relaxing and zen! great write up!
Rebalance Ritual a 90 minute treatment looks good. Your white robes really look sexy. Will try this spa for peaceful and relaxing time.
This sounds like a great spa experience in a an extremely beautiful setting. I love visiting a day spa on trips – I think it is the only time I allow myself to relax (my itineraries are always a bit hectic) so spa time is a welcome contrast! I think I was so relaxed at one point I even fell asleep on one occasion, but that felt like such a waste!
That spa looks like what dreams are made of! Getting pampered among amazing views! I love adventure and travel but sometimes it would be nice to unwind and just relax in a place just like this!
It’s the perfect place to relax after the world famous overland track hike
I love great spa destinations and you really bring this to life! Sounds like one for the bucket list!
This looks like so much fun. I want to run away and relax now! I so need a break!
Hahah me too! Wait until you see our review of Cradle Mountain lodge.
What luxury! I could for sure rock a dressing gown there haha! Good advice to always book ahead and just enjoy. Well done to James for being such a good sport 🙂
Wow! Looks like you had an amazing time! 😀 And it looks so peaceful out there! 😀
Totally out kind of place!!
Wow this looks so amazing. I particularly love the view from the massage room. So tranquill!
This place looks so cozy! I’ve never been to a spa but now I want to go!
I like the view that you are treated to. I am in a desperate need for a spa treatment and with this post, the urge is higher. I will have to scout around for some deals to get rid of this urge. I know it won’t be as amazing as yours but still. Sigh! I envy you right now
I’ve never been to a spa before! This looks super relaxing and how can you beat that view while getting pampered!? Great post 🙂
Oh you need to change that!! Spa it up!
I’ve not been there but LOVE the balcony view! Seeing the forest and being in that environment is incredibly fun and freeing and also, ya just feed off of the immense natural energy in such settings. Thanks for sharing 🙂
A spa in the midst of a World Heritage Listed National park? Whoa! That sounds awesome! The view from the balcony looks stunning. Hot stone back massage??? That sounds so divine!!!
I’ve been to Cradle Mountain and after six days of hiking I wished that I’d been smart enough to book into the spa afterwards. It sounds like heaven. So what did the spa newbie hubbie think of the experience?
Sitting at an office desk in cold and grey London right now this honestly could not sound more blissful right now. Bathrobes, Tea, nature, spa treatments – sign me up now!!!!!
Wow, this place looks absolutely cozy and magical. I’ve never been and for sure will have to make it a point to!
I could use a trip to this spa. A nice cuppa tea and a little treatment would not go a miss! Looks like a great find.
omg this looks sooo nice! and definitely tranquil. would love to make my way there someday. something about an alpine getaway is always so inviting
Love the view! Trying to imagine the spa in that surroundings, looks like such an amazing place to relax and take a break! Thanks for sharing, I’ll sure consider visiting the place. 🙂
Nothing accompanies paperwork better than tea. That white robe surely is very sexy! I would love to throw myself in Waldheim Alpine Spa – I so badly need it right now!
Oh me too!!
