Millbrook in Queenstown, New Zealand

In a setting once known for its wheat farms (to feed miners at the nearby gold mines), Millbrook is now home to an exclusive vacation resort surrounded by snow-capped mountains and a sprawling golf course. Those in search of unadulterated relaxation will want to head straight from their guest room, suite, villa or cottage to The Spa at Millbrook, where every treatment begins with a tranquility welcome ritual. From "feet first" massages to Man Zone treatments targeted at male guests, the variety here might feel somewhat overwhelming. But it also means there is pampering to meet every need, whether your aching muscles long to be revived after a day on the fairways (Golfer's Reviver) or you want to regenerate your skin (Action Sublime). Best of all you can round out your experience with fresh seasonal cuisine at the signature Millhouse restaurant, located in a former flour mill.
