Two years after its grand opening, Hilton Queenstown has expanded its ambitions on the country’s South Island and re-established itself as Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa.
“We felt somewhat confined by the original name, which didn’t quite communicate the expansiveness of the guest experience here,” said Andrew Nisbet, general manager. “As a resort and spa, we’re really embracing this destination as a place to experience some of the greatest natural wonders and most exhilarating pursuits available in all New Zealand.”
Hilton has four properties spread throughout the country, with the Queenstown location being the only resort & spa. Situated at the foothills of the Remarkables mountain range, the property is a jumping off point for skiing and snowboarding in the winter and exploring hiking and biking trails in the summer, as well as the numerous adventure sports in the surrounding area, including Bungee Jumping, which began in New Zealand.
In celebration of its new conception, the resort has unveiled a new spa package, “Escape to eforea,” which includes:
Accommodation for two in a lake-view room with floor-to-ceiling windows, private balcony and a schist stone fireplace
Two half-hour massages (per stay) at the award-winning eforea spa: at Hilton, with 20 percent discounts on additional treatments
Full buffet breakfast at Wakatipu Grill, a finalist in Cuisine magazine’s 2012 “New Zealand Restaurant of the Year Awards”
