Alba thermal hot springs is currently under construction with plans to open its doors in the winter of 2022.

With building and interior design by Hayball and landscape architecture and pool design by Mala Studio, the 15 ha Fingal property will feature a collection of 32 geothermal pools of varying sizes both in and outdoors. The luxurious spa will also feature a range of health and wellbeing treatments while enjoying the scenic natural backdrop of the Mornington Peninsula.

Ratio was originally engaged by the client to give evidence on the project. This appointment led to our town planning team’s ongoing retainment as part of the project team.

In the course of their work, the planning team balanced the environmental considerations of the surrounding region with sensitively designed eco-friendly geothermal offerings appropriate to the site’s location in a Green Wedge Zone.

The atmospheric Alba thermal hot springs promises to become a popular bathing and spa destination feature on the Mornington Peninsula.
