    Relaxed and rejuvenated
    Our second visit to this beautiful location. The bird life and the popping up of the small turtles below clamping number 10 was memorable. Great stay , with great staff , highly recommended. Look for mid week deals.

    Oasis in Gippsland
    We visited the Metung hot springs in late afternoon to avoid the sun and crowds. The hilltops springs were amazing, in which we could enjoy individual barrels with a breathtaking view of the bay. Remember to bring your own towels so that you do not have hire the robe ($15).
    Dear Yui Yin t, The team at Metung Hot Springs are delighted to hear you had a wonderful experience and appreciate the time you have taken to share your experience. We hope to see you at the hot springs again soon. Warm Regards, Metung Hot Springs

    Glamping at the Metung Hot Springs
    My wife and I visited the Metung Hot Springs for the first time this January with a one night Glamping stay. Overall as the facility is new and still in development, the springs was a relaxing stay and not too busy like some of its competitors. There were just a couple of things that meant I couldn’t give a 5/5 for the stay… The glamping tents are great. Cozy, with all that you need. The only downfall was the vicinity in which they are to each other. Being tents, you can hear everything (and I mean everything) in each tent either side of you. It also limits the privacy feel as despite some screens, you can still see onto each other’s private bathing barrel balconies. There needs to be some additional screening added to rectify this. Also, knowing what I know now, I would not suggest a lagoon tent. Although a nice view, at night, as there was an old dead tree in the water near our tent, every water bird converged there and squawked throughout the night. It was so loud that we were unable to sleep. Another small suggestion would be to have complimentary bottles of water in the tents as opposed to complementary Prosecco- not all guests are drinkers. Despite the lack of sleep, the springs themselves are lovely and we really enjoyed the place. Would recommend but suggest if your planning on staying, to make sure you bring plenty of food/snacks as its limited, and to make sure your tent is away from the water if you want to actually sleep at some point.
    Dear Loopieluke, Thank you for choosing Metung Hot Springs for your recent stay and for taking the time to share your detailed feedback. We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed the overall experience, and we appreciate your constructive insights. We understand your concerns regarding the proximity of the glamping tents and the potential noise disturbance. Your suggestion for additional screening to enhance privacy is well-noted, and we'll certainly evaluate this for future improvements. Your point about complimentary water bottles instead of Prosecco is valid, and we'll consider offering a non-alcoholic option in the future to cater to a broader range of preferences. We're grateful for your recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back to Metung Hot Springs. Warm Regards, Metung Hot Springs

    The place is naturally , stunningly beautiful. What the owners have created is amazing : a stylish, elegant clamping experience (my first!) with huge tent - extremely comfortable bed, with first class soft furnishings, - soaps, etc and well stocked with all you need!

    Will be great in future
    Its still under construction so keep that in mind when you’re paying the same cost as mornington but with limited pools. They should probably limit the amount of people they let it open to per day as the pools can get alot more crowded than you’d expect for East Gippsland. The “adults only” section up the hill (Accessible by a local housing estate road) is smaller than expected but the view is amazing! While you’re in the area, have lunch at the golf club (which is technically apart of the hot springs and will be linked better in their future plans) Its going to be lovely in future with the hotel etc but they’re stretching it atm with price and cramming people in.

We spent a couple of nights in the glamping tents and had an amazing time.

The good:
- The tents were fantastic, far better than a lot of hotel rooms I’ve stayed in in terms of quality and comfort
- The personal barrels on the deck were great, we had a number of relaxing baths in them
- The staff were all great, friendly and helpful
- The breakfast was lovely and was so good to get it delivered to the room so you could have it on your own private deck
- We ordered the in room dining both nights (Thai green curry) and it was tasty and very generous in terms of serving size
- The facilities itself were great. It’s nowhere near as big as the Mornington hot springs but that’s why we wanted to go so it was more private. It definitely never felt like it was busy so they did a good job ensuring it didn’t get overbooked
- The setting and the views were also fantastic

Even though I’ve rated it as 5 stars, there are always some opportunities for improvement:

- It would be great to have a cold plunge pool which was really cold like an ice bath
- I think the tents could do with a notice inside asking people to respect other people a bit more. On our last morning, we were woken at 6am to one of the tents next to us constantly laughing but in a really annoying manner. As the tents are close to each other, it’s easy to hear other people
- The same tent seemed to be testing out their door the night before as at 11pm they must have opened and shut it about 10 times in the space of 5 minutes. God knows what they were doing but the doors do slam shut white loud and it would be worthwhile putting a damper on the door to shut it slower and stop it banging
- The price is a little steep albeit when you include breakfast, the admission and the welcome gifts it’s not too bad all things considered

We look forward to coming back and hope it can maintain its private feel and not become overcrowded like has been the case at the Mornington location. Thanks again.
