Wellness at The Marlborough Lodge

Relaxation Massage (60 minutes - $150 / 90 minutes - $180)

Relaxation massage is a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes to help you relax while easing any muscle soreness and tension. Compared to therapeutic massages, the massage therapist will move at a slower pace and use lighter pressure.

 

Deep Tissue Massage (60 minutes - $180  /  90 minutes - $220)

A type of massage therapy, deep tissue massage involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). It's used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

 

Hot Stone Massage (60 Minutes - $170  /  90 minutes - $ 200)

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones to warm up tight muscles, so they can work on pressure points and problem areas to alleviate tension and stress. Hot stones may either be placed on the body or used as an extension of the therapist's hands, which allows the therapist to work more deeply and more quickly.

 

Head, Neck and Back Massage (45 minutes - $100)

Great for relaxation, targeting all the places you hold the most tension - the head, neck, shoulders and back! Great for those that have been traveling long hours, or just need some “me” time.

 

Head and Foot Massage (45 minutes - $100)

In this massage we will start with the head taking extra time for the scalp, and then ending with a 20-minute treatment on the feet. Perfect for those who have been out on long hikes or walks and are feeling a bit sore.

What our customers say

Fantastic place, delicious food (much better than some Michelin star restaurants), excellent wine list, and... fresh orange juice for breakfast (trust me, it’s mission impossible all around New Zealand). Very elegance and modern furnished room (but too small - we recommend to choose more spacious suites) Very clean))) if this is important for you It was our best experience in NZ!

This was our second stay here, though it was the Old St. Mary’s Convent when we stayed in 2009. There have been significant changes made inside - the rooms are more modern and elegant but still very comfortable and spacious. The chapel is now used as the gathering spot for afternoon canapés and drinks prior to dinner, with a large fireplace outside where we could visit with our hosts and fellow guests. The manager, Karen, was extremely attentive to our every need and the staff, Lindsey and Heaven, were fun to visit with and equally attentive. Everyone’s attention to detail is impressive, to say the least. We came away feeling quite pampered! And we really enjoyed meeting Maria, who cares for the beautiful grounds, to share memories from our earlier visit. Be sure to walk around the grounds to admire Maria’s good work and view the gardens - and, by all means, visit the chickens! I especially enjoyed walking along the creek and photographing the various species of birds that gather there. Lastly, as others have noted, the location is perfect for setting out to visit the many nearby wineries.

A former convent on 16 beautifully landscaped acres updated to the highest standard. Our stay was was one of the highlights of our visit to New Zealand. Foremost in our experience was the warm attention of Manager Karen and Owner Angela which carried through the entire staff. The building is charming, the gardens beautiful.
