Guests have hailed it ‘the most beautiful place in the world’ and ‘heaven on earth’, so why not experience this kind of magic with your beloved by honeymooning at Millbrook Resort – the ultimate finishing touch to your wedding celebrations.
The iconic South Island five-star property, just 20 minutes from Queenstown, is set among 500 acres of lush green golfing fairways, stunning rolling hills and gentle streams. The award-winning team have won multiple accolades not only for their faultless accommodation but their vast facilities, which includes a world famous golf course, spa and pampering offerings, not to mention fine dining.
As honeymooners, the location and facilities at Millbrook give you the chance to build your own itinerary, in order to enjoy your time as newlyweds at your own pace. And with Queenstown airport now operating night flights, this picturesque South Island location is now even more accessible.
We asked Ciara Craig, Millbrook’s Marketing Manager, about the luxury that awaits couples, and why she believes Millbrook may be perfect for you and your beloved:
Why is Millbrook the perfect honeymoon destination?
Millbrook is the ultimate place to stay, play, live and relax. From the moment you enter the gates, you’ll feel that Millbrook is the ideal setting for your romantic honeymoon. An awe-inspiring and very photographic location, our resort will give you the perfect opportunity to take a moment, sit back, and hold onto those memories from your wedding day.
What facilities are on offer for pamper and for play?
With four restaurants, a day spa, 27-hole championship golf course, health and fitness facilities, mountain bikes, heli-pads and tennis courts - there's quite a bit to choose from.
Our Health and Fitness Centre is complimentary to all guests. This includes a fully-equipped gym, 25m indoor lap pool, outdoor hot pools, sauna and group fitness studio. We run yoga, pilates and Les Mills classes daily. Bookings are required for all other facilities. We also have a concierge team onsite who can help with other activities within the region.
We’ve heard there are fabulous foodie delights...
Absolutely! The roaring fire at The Millhouse restaurant evokes a romantic ambience in winter, while al fresco dining by the Mill Pond is an ideal way to spend a relaxed yet sensual summer meal. For Japanese cuisine lovers, you will love a visit to Kobe – Asian-fusion style dining at its best. And take a well-deserved pit stop at the Hole in One café, a more casual affair where they are still serious about good food and coffee.
How do we choose which type of accommodation best suits?
We have five different accommodation offerings, so there’s something to suit your every need. Call our team to discuss your perfect studio, cottage, or even home on the fairway! Millbrook is all about giving you the choice and space to find something that suits your needs. With our cottages and fairway homes, you can hire one of our chefs to come and privately cook for you, or in summer you can invite friends over for a barbecue.
No doubt Millbrook is stunning any time of year, but are there seasonal booking benefits?
Yes, Millbrook is beautiful no matter what time you visit, but we have two, three and five-night summer and winter packages available, which all include breakfast and resort credit.
