Tranquillity is the perfect name for this place

"Can't remember the last time we felt so relaxed. Such attention to detail adds that little something special, and excellent service makes us want to return next weekend and each one after!"

Shizuka Ryokan is a traditional Japanese inn, located in country Victoria. Hundreds of years ago ryokans — traditional Japanese inns close to natural springs — were a place for Japan’s samurai warriors to rest and reflect.

Japanese culture has a deep respect for ometenashi — hospitality. Shizuka Ryokan is a quiet, minimalist space. It has traditional elements such as: tatami mats, yukata robes, bonsai, shoji screens, futon beds, Japanese architecture, and a Zen rock garden.

The genuine hospitality of the owner, and the professional services of the hospitality and spa staff, ensures that guests leave Shizuka Ryokan relaxed and revived. Highlights include traditional Japanese cuisine and spa and wellness treatments.

Located just 75 minutes from Melbourne in Hepburn Springs, Shizuka Ryokan offers an authentic Japanese experience that is closer to home.

Walk into your room at the Shizuka Ryokan and you walk into another world. The simple beauty of the traditional Japanese decor soothes the senses. Delicate cups of fragrant green tea refresh the spirit. Relax against silken cushions and feel your cares float away. The soft tatami matting is gentle underfoot as you cross to a panel of delicate shoji screens and slide them open to reveal the serene beauty of your private Japanese garden. Here water flows softly and time passes slowly. At night a new surprise awaits you when, in traditional ryokan fashion, staff replace the tables and chairs in your room with authentic Japanese futon bedding. Placed directly on the tatami matted floor, your futon enables you to experience the centuries old tradition of Japanese style slumber.

Soak up the simple charms and timeless beauty of the ryokan experience as you luxuriate in your ensuite spa bath. At Shizuka Ryokan, every luxury is provided so you can indulge in the sensual delights of the bath.
