    Height of Luxury

    If you need another reason to escape our borders and get over to New Zealand, the new spa at Eichardt’s Private Hotel might do it. The luxury property arguably has the best spot in Queenstown, on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, and has been there since 1862, when it was originally set up during the gold rush. The award-winning hotel has five lake-view suites, two mountain suites, four lake-front apartments, a three-level residence and penthouse, which has 240m of living area and an outdoor spa as well as those exceptional views. The new spa, tucked away in the heritage wing of the hotel, offers Manuka honey facials and Swedish massages, and you can even get a package that includes an outdoor spa session finished off with high tea in the hotel’s dining room.
