Sofitel Luxury Hotels has announced the opening of the latest in its award-winning, global So SPA collection at Sofitel Queenstown Hotel & Spa, following the launch of the French spa brand in 2013 at Queenstown’s sister property Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour

Wouter de Graaf, Area General Manager of Sofitel Luxury Hotels New Zealand, says, “We are thrilled to unveil our global spa concept to provide hotel guests and local residents with a world-class spa experience in Queenstown.

“Wellness is a growing focus for Sofitel Luxury Hotels, and our comprehensive range of deluxe treatments, together with high-end products and stylish treatment rooms are in line with So SPA’s across the world.”

So SPA’s selection of therapies is categorised in a similar way to a French gourmet restaurant menu. Guests can indulge themselves and tailor their spa experience by combining different treatments listed under ‘Starters’, ‘Mains’, ‘Specials’ and ‘Desserts’.

Treatments listed under ‘Starters’ last 30 minutes and are designed for busy urbanites seeking rest and relaxation. ‘Mains’ and ‘Desserts’ last an hour and feature full body massages, facial care and other luxurious treatments intended to revitalise and nourish the body and soul.

Treatments use French cosmetology brand THÉMAÉ, designed around the natural, healing benefits of tea. Other beauty brands on offer include Sothys and Pure Fiji.

On arrival, spa guests are treated to a complimentary fragrant foot bath, followed by a private consultation with a So SPA therapist to ensure guests’ individual needs are met.

All 5 treatment rooms boast individual showers and steam rooms, with a couples’ suite complete with cedar wood Jacuzzi. Notably, the So SPA now features a new and unique infra-red room as well as serene relaxation rooms in addition to a discovery bar, where guests are encouraged to further unwind following their treatment over a freshly brewed tea and healthy snack.

Crafted Kiwi sculptures, local artworks with influences of traditional Maori greenstone have been incorporated into the spa decor to reflect the hotel’s unique location near the shores of Lake Wakatipu.
