It’s been a tough couple of years. The work-from home juggle and the uncertainty and stress of a global pandemic have burnt people out like never before. So, nothing says, “I see you and I appreciate you,” more than investing in your delegates’ mental health and wellbeing.
A wellness incentive is the perfect thank you to your team or your top clients. Plan a revitalising experience to send them home refreshed and energised, armed with new self-care skills, and maybe even inspired with fresh insights.
Queenstown is New Zealand’s ultimate wellness destination. Restore your delegates’ wellbeing with these top five relaxing experiences amidst awe inspiring alpine scenery.
The Spa at Millbrook
This luxurious award-winning spa is in a beautiful villa amidst secluded woodlands within the Millbrook Resort grounds. Take a moment to slow down and relax with an indulgent range of massages, body wraps, facials, and beauty treatments.
Signature treatments include Aroma Stone Therapy using essential oils and therapeutic heat from stones, the Vicky Hydro Bliss whole body water massage, and a range of Biotec treatments to improve skin health. The spa is the perfect treat for your team to feel revitalised and refreshed before a gala dinner. Spa packages combine treatments with fruit and cheese platters and bubbles for the ultimate indulgence.
Once your delegates have enjoyed their treatments, they can head to the resort’s swimming pool for a lap or two or the hot tubs for a soak. Delegates can extend their relaxation experience further in the aptly named relaxation rooms. Overlooking a bubbling brook, the rooms are a perfect spot to slip into warm robes and sip a refreshing tea while listening to soothing music. Whatever they choose, they’ll come away renewed and rejuvenated.

Onsen Hot Pools
One of those magical places where the experience exceeds all expectations. The cedar-lined Onsen Hot Pools overlook the Shotover River and provide a soak with a view.
Your guests can kick back and unwind in the warm water and breathe in the relaxing scents from the aromatherapy burners, while enjoying the unforgettable panoramas. Locals like to go at dusk for a soak that takes in the sunset and the stars.
For the ultimate wellness experience for your delegates, book them into the day-spa for a choice of face or body treatments. Choose from deep tissue, relaxing and hot stone massages and a range of delicious facials, followed by a 45-minute soak in the hot tubs. Refreshments include local wines and a choice of tasty snacks.
The Spa at Nugget Point
The Spa at Nugget Point includes a saltwater plunge pool, marbled bath, steam room, sauna, hot tub, and rose mosaic showers. The designers had a vision of combining the grandeur of classical Roman baths with the luxury of modern technology, to create a peaceful haven where mind, body, and spirit unite.
The perfect sequel to a thrilling Shotover Jet adventure, book your delegates in to recharge whilst taking in the alpine setting. Spa treatments include massages, body wraps and scrubs, aromatherapy soaks and beauty rituals. A range of packages combine relaxation with dining at the Nugget Point restaurant and bar.
