Many times traditional hotels are stale or typical and you want to stay someplace special, away from the city trappings. You want an environment that epitomizes the character of the country. In Queenstown, New Zealand I have found that very special property that stands alone in unique style and charm.
The Millbrook Resort is a great haven for anyone who wants a piece of paradise away from the city, but with easy access (by shuttle) to all the city of Queenstown has to offer. Our comfortable accommodation offered a covered patio where the ducks love to hang out and parade in hopes of food. The scenery there is breathtaking, with the green of the golf course and the rich mountain contrast nearly at its edge. The food was wonderful and the staff was at the very top of their game, offering services that were above and beyond expectations. If the spa had not been fully booked our stay would have been perfect! We loved the hospitality, landscape, serenity and charm of this special property.
Golfers will enjoy the 27-hole golf course with majestic views and gurgling streams. The boutique luxury lodge sits on a portion of the 500 acres of green rolling hills leading up to the striking peaks. Spa lovers will enjoy one of the top 10 hotel spas in the world, with head to toe rejuvenation treatments to renew your body.
Anyone wanting a tranquil, scenic setting can easily fold themselves into the canvas of this little bit of heaven.
