Takaro Wins at World Travel Awards '07

Te Anau Retreat is New Zealand's Leading Spa Resort

Bangalore, India (November 2007).

Takaro spa retreat has gained global recognition, being named New Zealand's Leading Spa Resort at the Asia, Australasia and Indian Ocean leg of the 2007 World Travel Awards.

"Winning a World Travel Award is one of the highest accolades a travel organization can achieve," said Sarah McCrum, Manager of Takaro. "We thank the organizers, sponsors and those who have voted for Takaro. We are proud to be included in such an elite group."

At the foot of the Southern Alps of New Zealand's South island, Takaro is a concept resort with unique and effective ways of relaxing and rejuvenating guests in its award-winning Energy Clinic Spa and Five Element Chalets, each selected to maximize personal reward. Surrounded by 3 million acres of World Heritage National Park, the spa resort nestles in a private 2000-acre river valley estate with uninterrupted views of the stunning Kepler Mountain Range.

Famous for its menu of unique multi-hand energy massages, including the extraordinary Ten Hand Massage, Takaro promises its guests the opportunity to experience total relaxation and inner peace utilising the personal energy profiles of I Ching, China's ancient Book of Changes. Taking the date, year and time of birth, an analysis is made to determine an individual's element balance. From this the consultant recommends which of the Five Element Chalets - Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water - best supports their relaxation, health and wellbeing, and then prescribes the most effective treatments, activities and diet.

Established to acknowledge, reward and celebrate the enormous achievements in all sectors of the global travel industry, the third leg of the World Travel Awards was held at the majestic Leela Palace Kempinski in Bangalore, and attended by over 200 travel professionals, media and VIPs from around the world.

"We rededicate ourselves to providing cutting edge and innovative rejuvenation experiences for our guests," Sarah McCrum added.
