Ski equipment rental, ski field transfers and day passes are available within the hotel to make planning simple.

After a day on the slopes relax using The Rees’ in-room spa services. Relieve tired muscles with a remedial massage or indulge in a hot stone body wrap or rejuvenating hydrating facial.

Enjoy a glass of world-class Central Otago pinot noir or Marlborough sauvignon blanc while taking in the views of the southern lakes in the award-winning, True South Dining Room.
