Oasis of Wellness

Written by Jenny McLeod

Moss Spa, the recently opened spa at the Five Mile centre is an oasis of wellness, rejuvenation and relaxation with an array of high-quality spa treatments.

Manager Maree Welgus says the contemporary space in the hotel caters for Queenstown locals as well as guests from the new Sudima Hotel which is opening next door.

“The spa incorporates special touches of Queenstown and we look forward to welcoming and establishing long term personal relationships with locals but also have products and treatments to suit the needs of hotel guests who are likely to come from all over New Zealand and hopefully again soon, from all over the world.”

She says Moss staff are professionally trained and dedicated to providing an extensive array of high quality treatments using the every best professional techniques and products – natural, sustainable and ethically produced wherever possible – to leave guests feeling revitalised, refreshed and most importantly pampered.

The spa’s signature treatments use natural ingredients and New Zealand brands are a feature.

“The skincare products are provided by well known Kiwi company Juvenate and are vegan, cruelty free and sustainably and ethically produced,” says Maree. “South African brand Theravene is also on board with their rich botanicals and essential oils which we use in a number of bespoke treatments.”

Moss has three specially designed treatment rooms including a twin room with a signature spa immersion bath.

“This is the very best luxury spa destination for indulging in self-care. We are excited to be offering our facility and treatments in such a beautiful resort as Queenstown.”
