Itâ€™s a welcome arrival given guests can now indulge in a soothing apres-ski soak or pampering prep pre-party, essential pastimes during a visit to the resort town.
While there have long been plenty of options dotted about the region, Eichardtâ€™s has upped the calibre of them in a pretty appealing way, with the opening of dedicated in-house spa, The Vault.
The beautifully-appointed hotel has the benefit of being located in the best spot in town, nestled on the lakefront within Queenstownâ€™s shopping district, but the spa is surprisingly removed from the bustle, tucked into the hotelâ€™s chic heritage wing. In fact, the treatment room is located within the buildingâ€™s former gold vault dating from 1887, hence the name.Â
Forming a partnership with local experts Body Sanctum Spa means the hotel is offering a fittingly premium experience, with treatments performed by therapists trained to international standards for hotel guests and spa visitors alike.
Indulgent relaxation appears to be the priority with a number of body treatments and massages of offer, although with a body scrub and manuka honey facial also on offer, thereâ€™s enough options to emerge looking sufficiently glowy and radiant too.Â
A private lounge means it’s possible to bookend a treatment with a meal, a drink or even high tea, particularly appealing if youâ€™re about to take up one of the spaâ€™s couples options for massage or treatments.Â
Book the Eichardtâ€™s Penthouse and the spa experience elevates further with the use of an outdoor hot tub and private sauna.
There’s also a solution to the standard travel day rush, where check out time at the hotel and and check in time at the airport often arenâ€™t conveniently timed together. Instead, check into the spa for up to three hours of treatments and the staff will handle your luggage and transfers.
