The Wai Ora Day Spa has been announced as the New Zealand winner across three categories of the 2012 World Luxury Spa awards and the finalist in the two remaining categories.
The Rotorua-based spa was placed first for Best Luxury Spa Destination, Best Luxury Spa Group and Best Luxury Mineral Springs Spa, and was the runner-up in the categopries for Best Luxury Day Spa and Best Luxury Spa Resort, with these two awards both being won by a spa in the Bay of Islands.
This is the second year in a row that Wai Ora Spa has won the World Luxury Spa Awards and they remain the only Rotorua-based spa to have ever won or been a finalist.
"We are thrilled with the result. these awards acknowledge all of the hard work that has been done in the past and certainly provides further motivation for us to continue to expand our spa offerings here in Rotorua and INternationally. We see Rotorua as being the spa centre of the South Pacific and we will continue to bring this vision into reality."
