The world’s largest bathing event – Soakember 2022
Join in the worldwide celebration of bathing, hydrotherapy, hot springs and nature-based wellness activities this Soakember on November the 12th.
Soakember is an international day to celebrate the connections that result from hot spring bathing and its benefits. Each Soaktember has a guiding theme that intertwine with each location around the world, with 2022’s theme being “Local Hot Spring Experiences that Amplify the Vitality of All.” Vitality is often found in unexpected places, but hot springs have been known to be regenerative and revitalising places of relaxation and growth.
Soak together with hot springs enthusiasts at a plethora of participating hot springs around the world in places like Hungary, Japan, the United States of America, and including some Aussie and New Zealand favourites.
Peninsula Hot Springs is celebrating Soakember with a variety of wellness events to participate in. Take part in the Global Bathing Journey, an epic adventure into the culture and traditions that motivated the creation of the Peninsula Hot Springs. A Wellness Host will expertly guide you through meandering, tree-lined paths, through the Reflexology Walk, Turkish Hammam and the Nordic Sauna. Or, enjoy hot spring-inspired soundscapes by local musician Spud Thompson in the open-air amphitheatre and sit back and let the soundwaves sooth you. You don’t want to miss out on the fun, so make sure to book today.
