Known the world over as one of the most picturesque resorts in the world, Millbrook is no stranger to winning awards, having garnered multiple accolades over the years for its five-star luxury accommodation, world-class 27-hole golf course and restaurants.

And it continues to lead the way by shrugging off stiff national competition to be named as New Zealand’s Leading Spa Resort. The World Travel Awards, celebrating its 21st anniversary this year, acknowledges, rewards and celebrates excellence across all sectors of the global travel and tourism industry, with half a million votes cast annually by travel professionals and high-end travellers.

Nestled in a blend of luxury and nature, The Spa at Millbrook prides itself on pampering, soothing and rejuvenating all guests during their stay, delivering only the finest, most energising experience.

Spa Manager Vicky Bate said it was “a huge privilege” to win the award.

“The World Travel Awards recognise the very ‘best of the best’ in quality and service, so to win this and be acknowledged as the best in New Zealand is a tremendous achievement for the team.”

World Travel Awards President and founder Graham Cooke said it was with “tremendous pride” that the trophy for New Zealand’s Leading Spa Resort had been presented to Millbrook Resort.

“This is the fourth consecutive year the property has been recognised by the World Travel Awards’ voters, suggesting the resort continues to be a shining example to its competitors in the region,” he said.

As a regional winner in Asia and Australasia, Millbrook now moves forward to the World Travel Awards Grand Final in Marrakech, Morocco in November.

About Milbrook Resport

Millbrook is a thriving resort set amid 500 acres of lush green fairways, rolling hills, babbling streams and surrounded by snow-capped mountains.

While guests enjoy the tranquillity of the resort, and the opportunity to walk or bike around its grounds, they also relish the fact that it’s within a 20-minute drive of Queenstown.

Millbrook is one of the world’s most celebrated hotels and resorts and was voted the Best Golf Resort in Australasia at the World Travel Awards in 2010, 2011 and 2012 and the Best Resort in New Zealand for 2011 and 2012 and 2013. It also won the title of Best Luxury Wellness Spa Australasia and Oceania in 2013.

Millbrook Resort received the Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice Award for Top Hotel in New Zealand in 2013 and 2014 and also received the #15 Top Hotel in South Pacific, #22 for romance hotels in New Zealand, and #23 for luxury hotels in New Zealand in the 2014 awards.

Set in a natural, alpine amphitheatre against a backdrop of snow-capped mountain ranges on the outskirts of world-renowned tourism destination Queenstown, Millbrook was formerly a wheat farm with a 150-year history.

Many of the resort’s heritage features remain today including the original Millhouse, rustic buildings and a majestic avenue of trees, over 150 years old.

The resort celebrated its 20th birthday last year and features various levels of five-star accommodation, world class dining, the Spa at Millbrook, a fully-equipped health and fitness centre, a championship 27-hole golf course, covered driving range, swimming pool, outdoor spa pools, tennis courts and kilometres of biking and walking trails.

Nearby you can enjoy the gold rush era village of Arrowtown with its many restaurants, cafes, museum and boutique shops. Queenstown is a year-round paradise with attractions including world-class wineries, five ski areas, great nightlife, multiple golf courses and award-winning restaurants and bars.

Millbrook Resort will once again play co-host to the BMW New Zealand Open golf tournament, along with The Hills golf course , from March 12 to 15 2015.
