Set across 200 hectares of beautiful Central Otago countryside, Millbrook Resort is a unique New Zealand spa destination. With a serene landscape of green fairways, gentle streams and spectacular mountain surrounds, as soon as you enter the large stone gates, you will feel the difference — it truly is a world of calm.

The experience

Life is busy — work, traffic, crowds, time restraints, responsibilities… The world is an ever-revolving door of activity, which is great for progress, but sometimes not so much for your mind and body. This is where Millbrook excels. It offers you the chance to escape it all and focus on you. Just a 20-minute drive from Queenstown and two minutes from historic Arrowtown, Millbrook Resort is conveniently close to everything yet feels like a world away.

Queenstown itself is renowned as the adventure capital of the world, although the region is equally famous for its award-winning wines and beautiful eateries. Couple these experiences with a retreat at The Spa at Millbrook and the outcome is a holiday with something for everyone, young or old, relaxing or wild.

Millbrook’s signature spa offers a range of restorative treatments to help guests achieve optimum levels of health and ultimate relaxation.

The healing

With 10 treatment rooms and a team of highly skilled therapists, The Spa has something to suit all ages. The team at Millbrook strive to create a welcoming and tranquil space and understand the importance of consistency and professionalism to ensure their services not only meet your expectations, but exceed them.

Utilising exceptional brands including Elemis, Jessica and Comfort Zone, world-class facials, massages and full-body treatments are available, as well as men’s specific treatments, manicures, waxing and tinting. Spa manager, Michelle Batchelor, is proud of the spa’s consistent service and aptly so, as it has been named New Zealand’s Leading Spa Resort for the fourth consecutive year in the World Travel Awards.

The Spa at Millbrook is also one of only a handful of spas in the country to offer Vichy treatments. Using a stunning exotic 150-year-old acacia cedar wooden table, this treatment is considered by many the ultimate in spa treatments — definitely one for your bucket list.

The combination of award-winning spa treatments and jaw-dropping scenery make The Spa at Millbrook a truly unique experience that continues to fulfil local and visitor expectations alike. As more direct flights to Australia are introduced every year, Queenstown’s popularity as a holiday destination continues to grow and special accommodation and resort credit packages are perfect for people looking to get away for a long weekend and revive.

In addition to the spa and treatments, there is a health and fitness centre, indoor lap pool, outdoor hot spas and 27-hole golf course available for all visitors. Many make a trip to Millbrook for a half- or full-day experience, taking the chance to try a number of the outlets on-site or simply enjoy the stunning rural surrounds and escape from the hustle and bustle of life.

The food

While at Millbrook, there are plenty of opportunities for food and refreshments, with four dining options on-site, from casual cafe fare through to contemporary dining. Your food choices include everything from freshly baked muffins and pastries to great coffee, freshly caught salmon, sashimi, dumplings and yakitori. Each of the restaurants at Millbrook offers a different cuisine, ambience and character and is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Getting there

Complimentary shuttle services are available from Queenstown or Arrowtown, so guests can hop on a shuttle and begin to relax right from the start of their Millbrook experience, as they are guided safely along a stunning scenic rural path to Millbrook Resort. You can also drive the 20-minute trip from Queenstown or travel for only two minutes from the quaint neighbouring village of Arrowtown. The team at Millbrook suggest you arrive 15 minutes early for your treatment, so you have plenty of time to unwind, have a cup of tea and enjoy the relaxing lounge.
