Living Well Gym, Spa Pool, and Sauna
Included for residents of the hotel, the Living Well gym is equipped with a range of exercise machines, enough to cater for the need of any gym junkie. With 24 hour access available, you can work your routine in around the convention schedule.
The pool and spa areas are open during the day to residents, and you can pop down and enjoy a relaxing swim, or perhaps just a relaxing 10 minutes in the spa pool. If that’s not enough, and you still need to unwind, you can treat yourself to a massage in the Ocean Rooms Spa (fees apply), and then see if you can take the heat in adjacent sauna (Attendees must be suitably dressed at all times).
Take in a breath of fresh air and enjoy a scenic walk around Pendigo Lake. Situated immediately to the back of the hotel, the lake spans from the Hilton to the LG arena and newly opened Resort World. Recently regenerated, the pathes come alive at night with red and blue LED lighting, and during the day you can enjoy any number of the lake side seating areas. The water has a number of resident geese and ducks, making it for a very tranquil and ideal location for fursuit photos.
