ESTATE SOURCED - MANUKA HONEY BODY SCRUB - our 100% pesticide free Manuka honey sourced from the Treetops Estate has the most anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits in the range of honeys. It also contains vitamins, amino acids and minerals…and it is good to use such an ingredient when body scrubbing…since you will expose your skin.  Using raw honey is very important since without being processed, the honey will keep all the power of the ingredients as well as alive beneficial enzymes! Mixed with fine raw sugar, this is a totally organic treatment with the benefits of a full body massage. We finish with a full body Janesce Rose Mist, for hydrating, specifically for  the calming benefits of its Rose Oil.

MIRIMIRI MASSAGE - begins with an ancient Maori prayer and powhiri (welcome) to honour you and your ancestors, followed by deeply relaxing therapeutic  massage 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.

ROMIROMI MASSAGE - the deeper of the traditional holistic Maori body treatments. Similar to Hawaii’s lomilomi, it combines body alignment, deep-tissue massage and stimulation of pressure points to aid the release of cellular blockages, toxins, pain and extraneous energy, replacing these with positive energy and vitality. Natural body systems are invigorated, nourished and balanced and the extraordinary lightness felt after treatment demonstrates a positive shift to greater well-being and health.

... and why not experience our Mud Mask with locally sourced Rotorua thermal mud and native Manuka Honey that’s complemented by Western tradition’s Aloe Vera and Sweet Almond Oil, creating a facial and neck treatment that cleanses, detoxifies and soothes.

Every experience at the spa and within Treetops Wellness programs re predicated on maximum enjoyment and understanding of its pristine wilderness environment. The wellness centre offers exceptional cuisine based on healthy eating of which many ingredients are estate reared, expertly prepared by a culinary specialist and chosen to lead you towards greater health and vitality. 


A totally new way to experience the heritage taonga of indigenous body treatment in Rotorua, New Zealand’s most important centre of traditional Maori culture.
