Chanoyu is a Japanese word meaning Traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony
Escape the hustle and bustle of the everyday life and be transferred to somewhere in Kyoto, Japan where you will be relaxed in the traditional Japanese Ryokan room style, inspired by Onsen – traditional spas hot spring.
Based on the philosophy of Chanoyu – Purity, Harmony and Tranquillity, you are entering the Chanoyu’s journey. You will leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and renewed.
Your journey begins as you are greeted with our signature scent, then you will be invited to remove your shoes before entering into the treatment room and seated on the zabuton cushion on tatami mat floor. Drinking tea is a big part in Japanese culture. We serve finest quality Japanese green tea from Japan as well as Naturopathic Herbal Tea made locally. Over the years, we have been recommended by media and many as one of the most traditional Japanese Spa in Melbourne.

Chanoyu has been awarded for Service Excellence and aims to introduce Melbournians and visitors to a “little taste of Japan.” Chanoyu offers an environment to relax and escape from the everyday busyness of life and is distinctly different to the typical suburban beauty salon.
Anne believes true beauty resonates from within. She wants to encourage and remind women to look after themselves because in order to take care of anyone else you first must take care of yourself.
As a business owner, Anne passionately believes women today should make the most of the opportunity to look after themselves, and make choices and decisions that will allow them the time and space to rejuvenate and feel good.
She holds the belief that women are the creators of their own futures. She believes that by creating the time to take care of yourself, you will be able to play a bigger game, have stronger relationships and ultimately more success and confidence.
