New Zealand has long been known for it’s stunning scenery, world-class golf courses and thrill seeking opportunities. However, less well known nationally and internationally are New Zealand’s luxurious yet ethical wellness resorts. Located throughout the North and South Islands these resorts, lodges and retreats are perfect if you’re seeking relaxation and/ or physical challenges, inspiration, a detox or simply a pause.
