Our Wellness Programs host a journey combining the powerful energy of New Zealand’s native forest and of heritage indigenous therapies towards the goal of complete wellbeing and relaxation. No other luxury lodge offers comparable experiences.The two, five and seven-day traditional body and wellness treatments offer totally new ways to share the ancient heritage of Maori wellness taonga (treasures).
All Wellness Programs include the mirimiri massage, which begins with an ancient Maori welcoming prayer or powhiri to honour you and your ancestors, followed by deeply relaxing therapeutic massage with native kawakawa oil to raise the vibration of your physical body. Your mauri (life essence) and wairua (spirit) are encouraged to synchronise thus giving a sense of well-being, connectedness and balance. Mirimiri massage also works on the central nervous system aiding the release of tension and stress, bequeathing you deep relaxation, and a sense of clarity and rejuvenation. Our five and seven-day RITUALS Wellness Programs include an offsite full-body mud mask at the nearby QE Heath Day Spa, a worldwide recognised provider of treatments using Rotorua’s famous thermal waters and mud therapies.
Every experience at our healing spa and within Treetops Wellness Programs offers exceptional cuisine based on principles of Organic and Superfoods, many estate grown, and expertly prepared by culinary specialists.
Guests are encouraged and invited to explore via sign-posted hiking, biking and horse riding trails suited to all ages. Comprehensive maps or our professional guides carefully explain the best of trout fishing, riding, lakes, streams, and where to spot bird life and game animals; four new wetland habitats increasingly attract rare and endangered waterfowl.
