World Luxury Awards Group Marketing Director Michael Hunter-Smith is congratulating this year’s winners.

“True luxury is not easily attained. It takes highly efficient and dedicated staff, who are willing to go the extra mile and stop at nothing to ensure that every guest feels cared for and no challenge goes unresolved. This is what makes the winners shine.”

Around 20 Spas from around New Zealand were recognized in the 2019 World Luxury Spa Awards.
