It’s not all about outdoor activities in Glacier Country, here you can also enjoy luxury spa treatments at Amaia Spa.

Amaia is located within the five-star Te Waonui Hotel in Franz Josef and as you’d expect from one of NZ’s best hotels, the spa is impeccable, and a true haven of serenity set in amongst the rainforest.

The professional therapists offer a multitude of beauty, face, body and massage treatments. Therapist Dennis Majadas says their 90 minute Signature Massage Treatment is a stand out highlight .

“It’s a combination of four types of massages along with an application of warm soy massage candle wax, says Dennis. “We use a luscious vanilla and macaroon as our massage oil medium that makes the experience unforgettable.”

Dennis says the spa treatments are perfect for people who would love to be pampered and to unwind after exploring the beauty of Franz Josef.

“We cater to the guest’s five sensory experiences,” says Dennis. “Sight, the room is dimly lit, the bed is immaculately made and all items are clean and in order. Smell, the scent of aromatherapy which gives guests a soulful feeling. Sound, soothing and relaxing music which sets their mood. Feel, a magical touch that has the same rhythm as the human breath. Taste, herbal tea or fresh fruit juice to replenish themselves.”

The spa is open to hotel guests and non guests and is the perfect way to relax and replenish in Glacier Country.
