My husband and I booked a couples massage while we were staying in Franz Josef. On arrival the staff at the front of the house were attentive and professional. The SPA staff were waiting for us on arrival and made us feel very comfortable. We also both said how good both the massages were. Would recommend to others 100%.

On a rainy afternoon in Franz Josef, i decided to forgo the glacier walk in favor of a one hour massage from Nickola. What a great choice! The spa is accessed through the lobby of the Te Waonui Forest Retreat. I can only say, I wish I had stayed there. It has a very zen feel and I was welcomed... More

The spa is worthy of being included in a lifetime bucket list Whilst enjoying your own spa the roof lifts up so that you are experiencing the beauty of the south island in new zealand One small matter perhaps dont charge for towels or a drink Truly beautiful

Had a lovely massage with Reena. I had the signature spa which encompassed a variety of different massage techniques. Reena was very professional throughout the experience and her massage was blissful. Thanks!!

What a fabulous way to end an adventurous day in Franz Josef. I opted for a 45mins reflexology treatment from Dennis & a 30mins deep tissue massage from Nickola afterwards, with my husband having a 90mins deep tissue from Dennis. Can highly recommend both! Dennis was trained in the Philippines therefore does a very different technique to the English version... More

Was sore from traveling and hiking... Decided to book here last minute and had the best massage. My therapist was Dennis and he was beyond amazing ! He did a great job at focusing on the areas I asked and using the perfect pressure. I have gotten massages all over the world and this was by far one of the... More

My experience at the spa was absolutely spectacular. My masseuse was named Hope and she gave me the best massage of my life and my wife had Dennis and she also thought this was the best massage of her life and she has probably had 1 billion massages.

Went for a pedicure in February when we were visiting there. The therapist was fantastic and was very accommodating with the oils she used. The treatment was great, made my feet feel better. We had been travelling for a month and my feet needed some TLC. I'd like to thank Sadhana for the wonderful appointment.
