Heletranz & Te Atawhai Collaborate for Wellness

Heletranz & Te Atawhai Collaborate for Wellness

• Tourism expenditure in excess of $34 billion in New Zealand last year

• Wellness travel growing 50% faster than regular travel

• Local operators respond to global trend by launching mindfulness package

As the personal health and wellness trend takes the world by storm, consumers are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to integrate their experiences to incorporate pleasure with self-care and health outcomes.

At the helm of this trend is New Zealand’s own Heletranz, tourist operator and premium helicopter charter services, who has just launched a new bespoke wellness travel package for the Summer.

Partnering with luxury wellness retreat Te Atawhai, a modern day sanctuary for people on the fast lane seeking time-out to refresh and revitalise, the experience is designed to recharge the mind-set of travellers and locals alike.

With wellness travel growing 50% faster than regular travel, Heletranz owner Sofia Ambler says consumers demand to be recharged, refreshed, and rejuvenated for a healthy work-life balance.

“At Heletranz, our business is all about people. This partnership promises the opportunity to take to the skies and return with a well-balanced perspective, offering customers just what they deserve and need.

“The four day Wellness Package at the summit of Te Aroha will deliver lasting benefits to health and daily practices. The experience introduces a sense of calm and peacefulness through a wholefood menu, mountain hiking and walking, thermal hot springs, core strength work, massage and general body consultations each set amongst boutique accommodation in a stunning landscape.”

Ambler says with tourism expenditure in excess of $34 billion in New Zealand last year, she expects the offer to be snapped up with more similar packages being designed for her specific clientele.

With wellness vacations at an all-time high, Te Atawhai’s expert practitioners focus on transforming positive thinking and reconnection of the mind, body, and spirit through mindful, meditative practices to increase guests’ quality of life.

Living the wellness ethos, kiwi fashion designer and retreat owner Annah Stretton says she’s excited about the partnership and the proven benefits of such packages.

“As a fashion designer, I’ve always had a heavy workload. I came to a point in my career, where I needed to take a step back and review my overall wellbeing. I started a practise of daily mediation, eating well and yoga, which have had remarkable results in my overall work output and general happiness. It gives me great pleasure to offer this experience to the public through this partnership with Heletranz.”

Special Introductory Offer on bookings before 30th November 2017 of $1,150 per person including GST for the Day Package and $3,795 per person incl GST on the 4-day package - all based on 6 people travelling together in a Eurocopter helicopter.
