From mountain to massage – Après Ski package at Nugget Point Spa, Queenstown
Think Bella Italia, beautiful décor and a spa package that quiet literally will send you into another realm of relaxation. We are hanging on to the end of Winter here in Queenstown, snow is sporadic, days are still chilly, and the air is crisp. Total spring vibes going on down in the South.
We spent our weekend up on The Remarkables, making the most of that spring slushy goodness and limited lift queues. We lost count of the runs we had completed and only stopped when our legs started to get sore, a sure-fire sign that it’s time to call it a day.
Calling it a day on the hill meant we could get ready and head to our next destination. Nugget Point Spa in Arthurs Point, Queenstown. The Spa is a 7-minute drive from town, nestled in the hills and surrounded by the most epic mountains. I was in my element before we had even stepped through the door. We were here for a relaxation outdoor tub and Après Ski massage, which with our snowboarded’ out bodies were very warmly received.
Entering the spa area, we were greeted with a large pool, sauna and steam room. Beautiful marble floors and Italian style décor adorn the walls, bliss. We quickly got changed, chucked on the robes and headed out to the tubs. Three brand new custom-built outdoor tubs with views of the mountains, surrounded by beautiful pine trees and a massive spoonful of serenity just to top it off. We were in heaven, soaking in a tub, looking at the view and reflecting on the best day of the season so far!
The hour slipped away from us and we had to depart our little bubble of peace however, next up was the massage room. We both opted for a medium to hard massage, neck, back, and shoulders, you know to get those snowboard niggles out. I can hands down say this is the best massage I have ever had. Ever. I mean it, it was the most perfect massage in the most beautiful setting.
I didn’t want to leave but the beautiful ladies had made us a pot of peppermint tea to enjoy while watching the sunset over the mountains, honestly, could it be more perfect?
After melting into relaxation abyss, we spent some time in the spa. The pool, sauna and steam room were the perfect place to end what happened to be the most perfect day in Queenstown.
Seriously this place is divine, so close to Queenstown and the best way to spend an afternoon with your love, or alone.
Thank you, Nugget Point Spa, for this evening treat. We can’t wait to experience it again.
