Find bliss with the steam shower

aromatherapy oil2You’ve had a long week at the office with stressful deadlines and too many projects. Or you’ve done some hard physical work and have throbbing muscle aches and pains.

Here at Sea Zen you can relax and rejuvenate with your own private steam shower. Our steam shower is a large beautiful enclosed shower space with stunning travertine stone tiles and a glass wall. You sit on a comfortable Swedish designed stool and enjoy the experience before turning on the shower for a rejuvenating dose of water.

The power of steam showers in relaxation and detoxification has been known for thousands of years. They evolved from the steam bath which was invented during the Roman Empire.

our steam showerSome of the benefits associated with steam showers –

  • cleansing, hydrating and rejuvenating the skin
  •  relieving the pain and discomfort associated with muscle pain
  •  relaxing and soothing mind and body

Steam showers are similar to a sauna but not as hot, heating up to about 40 degrees with steam. Your steam environment will help you relax and rejuvenate during your Sea Zen stay. Use the spa and the steam shower and create your own luxury spa experience at Sea Zen.

Local Koalas

We’re not sure of his name and not even sure if it is a he or a she, but we’ve decided to call him Jeremy after our wonderful carpenter. In any case, Jeremy the koala seems to have taken up residence as we see him at least a few times a week in our trees or just walking up the driveway. The Sea Zen environment is home to birds and other wildlife, you’ll enjoy every day.

We have WiFi and welcome dogs

Sea Zen is dog friendly and welcomes dogs (and owners) who like having internet access. We know you sometimes have to stay connected even though you are in relax and holiday mode. Sea Zen provides you with internet access for all the fun things as well as the times you just have to do that work email.

Enjoy our secluded local beach

A 60 metre stroll to the beach, literally a 2 minute walk. Does it get better than this? Most of the year our secluded Separation Creek beach is yours alone.  Enjoy white sand and rock pools.

When the waves have retreated and the tide is low, you can enjoy the artistic design of volcanic rocks and peer into the small pools of water that form on the rocky shoreline. Life under the waves is endlessly fascinating with seaweed, starfish and kelp forests wafting in the water. The rocks are also a favourite spot for fishing.
