“Melbourne’s best-kept secret retreat”

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”

The Not-For- Profit Organisations we support

We love to give back and contribute to the community. Since our beginnings we’ve been actively involved and supportive of charity organisations that support women. We have a long association with the Pink Ribbon Breakfast Event and are privileged to be able to contribute to raise funds for this life-changing research.

We believe women are often too busy taking care of others to make time for themselves, so we encourage them to make time to nurture themselves knowing that they will then have more energy to share with those they love.

At Chanoyu we provide an intimate environment where our guests can relax and restore their sense of wellbeing. Our mission is to help people to truly relax and take better care of themselves. Our services are inspired by the art of the Japanese tea ceremony ritual which involves being mindful, welcoming and respectful. These values have been carried into our practice at Chanoyu where we honour our guests with our full attention each and every time they visit.
