Aro Ha Wellness Retreat Nominated for Prestigious Spafinder Wellness 365 Wellness Travel Award

Aro Ha Retreat on the South Island of New Zealand has been nominated for the Country Award: Favourite Wellness Travel Property in New Zealand in this year’s Spafinder Wellness 365 Travel Awards.

Aro Ha is New Zealand's first purpose built wellness retreat and opened on the shores of Lake Wakatipu near Glenorchy in January this year. The intimate luxury eco retreat hosts up to sixteen guests each week and utilises the magnificent wilderness surroundings to promote internal wellness through dedicated programs and spa cuisine.

“Spafinder sets a global benchmark for wellness travel and we are thrilled to be acknowledged with this nomination in these prestigious awards in our first six months of operation” said Aro Ha co-founder Damian Chaparro.

A global panel of twenty six spa and wellness industry journalists and experts nominated top candidates across six continents and forty one countries in each category.

Final winners will be selected by consumer vote, which is underway at Spafinder.com now through to September 19. Winners will then be announced at the World Travel Market in London on November 6.
