Chanoyu is a Japanese word meaning Traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony.
Chanoyu Urban Retreat is an award-winning day spa and is “Melbourne’s best kept secret retreat”. The Retreat is nestled in Smith St Collingwood, one of the most well-known dining and cultural districts in Melbourne.
Chanoyu offers you an exclusive experience where you are the only guest having treatment at any time or, if you wish, you can share the experience with a loved one, or friend.
The Chanoyu Urban Retreat philosophy is inspired by the art of the Japanese traditional tea ceremony ritual which is about being mindful, respectful and welcoming. We carry this practice through everything we do at Chanoyu with each experience you have with us. Your journey begins with you being welcomed by a Chanoyu therapist. As you are greeted and invited to remove your shoes, you will enter the room designed in Japanese Ryokan (Japanese Inn) style and when seated on the zabuton (seating cushion), tea will be served. Serving tea before and after your treatment is our ritual to begin and to end the Chanoyu experience: we serve the finest quality Japanese tea from Japan with seasonal flavours!
Chanoyu Urban Retreat has been recommended by media and bloggers as one of the most traditional and best Japanese Spas in Melbourne. Chanoyu has been given an award for Customer Service Excellence three times and was a Finalist in the Australian Beauty Industry Awards 2017 for Customer Care.
Chanoyu Urban Retreat is about Purity, Harmony and Tranquillity and “Let us take care of you, so you can take better care of others”
