Spa-hopping in New Zealand is what the 13-day Rejuvenation & Discovery package is all about. The first stop on the tour leads travelers to Paihia, a beachside town, where guests receive a daily steam sauna per person, and a spa credit during their 3-night stay. Travelers can also take time away from the spa to enjoy swimming with the dolphins, a sailboat cruise around the Bay of Islands, golf at Kauri Cliffs, or a day trip to Cape Reinga.

Next, travelers head to Auckland for a 1-night stay to enjoy the Aotearoa Aura spa treatment at Chuan Spa, which includes a greenstone and Manuka honey facial, a warm oil massage and body polish. Then they’ll head to Rotorua where they’ll stay at a lakeside resort, enjoy sparkling wine upon arrival and a 30-minute massage for two with Maori techniques.

Guests will also take a full day tour of Rotorua visiting Hell’s Gate and Mokoia Island, while birdwatching, tasting local cuisine, and going on a bush walk before enjoying a hot soak in Hinemoa’s Pool. The next four nights are spent in one of New Zealand’s most luxurious spa retreats near Abel Tasman National Park. Guests are welcomed with tea and a bottle of New Zealand wine, and have full use of all retreat facilities. Spa-lovers will end their trip in Queenstown, where they’ll stay in a luxurious lodge just outside of Glenorchy on Lake Wakatipu. During their stay guests will get a private 2-hour, in-room yoga lesson. Rates for the 13-day itinerary start at $8,000.
