Pullman Auckland ranked Top Hotel Spa in New Zealand

21 January 2013

Pullman Auckland ranked Top Hotel Spa in New Zealand

TripAdvisor has announced the top 10 hotel spas in the South Pacific, with Pullman Auckland’s Spa at the Pullman ranked at #8.

Spa at the Pullman is the highest ranked New Zealand hotel spa on the list, which has been compiled by TripAdvisor based on hotel spa reviews.*

The announcement comes off the back of a successful re-launch of the Spa in 2012 and sets the tone for another successful year in 2013.

Rob McIntyre, General Manager of Pullman Auckland says the accolade is particularly pleasing given votes were made by travellers who have experienced the Spa’s renowned five star service.

“We have worked hard to maintain exceptional international standards and provide innovative spa treatments at Spa at the Pullman, so it’s fantastic to receive such recognition from our guests,” says Mr McIntyre.

“It’s also great for our country’s tourism industry, as it highlights Auckland and Pullman Auckland as a premier travel destination for both locals and international visitors.”

Signature treatments include an Indigenous New Zealand Greenstone Massage, which taps into the healing and balancing properties of Greenstone (Pounamu) and a Swedish Massage with Elements of Indigenous Aotearoa, which sees a blend of traditional New Zealand oils worked into the muscles and soft tissue to provide relief from stress and tension.

The Spa also takes inspiration from leading health spas globally, by providing a nutritious menu for spa-goers featuring carefully selected ingredients to promote health and well-being.

Spa at the Pullman uses luxury spa brands Elemis and Thalgo and offers varied treatments and packages administered by expert therapists, including massage therapy, exotic wraps, facials and beauty treatments.
