The ethos of the brand was fuelled by our founder’s personal beliefs in the power of positive sharing and a desire for more meaningful connections.
15 years ago Melanie Gleeson saw a gap in the market and opened her first day spa on the Mornington Peninsula, at a time when few people even knew what a spa was and even fewer recognised the importance of investing in wellbeing. endota spa is now a place where women feel cared for on a physical, spiritual and emotional level.
endota is an indigenous word meaning beautiful. Every member of the endota spa family shares a common philosophy; wellness works for anyone and everyone. endota spa owners willingly share their time, their experience and their expertise not only for the good of others but for their own personal satisfaction and growth.
