Luup is a holistic wellness destination in Mornington. Hidden in the Peninsula Home Centre, away from Mornington’s main thoroughfare, is a sanctuary of sorts, offering an experience like no other.
At Luup, relaxation, rejuvenation and retail unite. The light-filled space offers a health-conscious café, yoga classes, spa treatments and a small store. The enticing aroma of essential oils and Dromana’s Little Rebel coffee welcomes visitors as they step through Luup’s doors.
Whilst the café’s menu brims with trendy classics (think avo on sourdough, açaí bowls and bircher), traditional ham and cheese toasties are on offer too. There’s a selection of teas, smoothies and kombuchas to sip post-yoga, as well as delectable delights provided by local makers Kin & Coast and Sweetgreens Bakery.
On Luup’s shelves, a carefully curated collection of products can be found, including aromatherapy diffusers, handmade crockery and beauty supplements. The store is also home to a range of eco-friendly skincare products, athleisure and ethical clothing labels, all lovingly sourced by Luup’s buyers.
Perhaps what separates Luup from other eateries and boutiques on the Peninsula however, are its dedicated yoga and spa treatment rooms located at the rear of the space. There’s an expansive number of classes to choose from, including prenatal yoga, mums and bubs yoga, Vinyasa and barre pilates; those seeking a little extra relaxation can opt for Luup’s facial or massage treatments.
Owner Kellie Langeliers has created Luup with convenience in mind. The space cleverly brings together several elements, eliminating the need to drive between a yoga class and your next brew. From Luup’s whitewashed interior and timber accents, to its branding by Seesaw Studio, it’s clear that every detail has been carefully thought out.
Whether you’re popping in for a latte, or starting your morning with a massage, there’s just something about Luup that will have you wanting to stay just that little bit longer.
