Design practice CBG Architects have completed the Hepburn Springs Escape Villas – a set of fourteen short-stay pods in Daylesford, Australia.

Situated on the grounds of the Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa, a historic resort that dates to the 1890s, each 75-metre guest house features a private spa, kitchen and bathroom amenities, a gas log burner, and a balcony that overlooks the surrounding bushland.

The retreat is managed by Belgravia Leisure, a division of the Belgravia Group.

Speaking on the project, Karen Golden, general manager of tourism and wellness at the company, said that "quality was paramount" to the pods' design.

"I'm delighted with it," she added.

"We wanted the focal point to be the landscape and this magical setting,” Bill Katsabis, design manager at CBG told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"It's about connecting to the elements here, whether it's the bush or the sound of water."

Other highlights of the resort include "social mineral bathing" and a variety of head-to-toe massage and body exfoliation services.
