1. Double your bliss with a couples massage at Kauri Cliffs.
At Kauri Cliffs Spa, their priority is to personalise your experience and meet your specific needs and leave you with awareness that your body, mind and spirit have been lifted and refreshed. Make their couple’s spa room your den while indulging in their recommended Misty Cliffs massage. A form of traditional Swedish massage, plus a back exfoliation and a hot mud mask, relieve and re-mineralise tired muscles. From there you will lie back on a bed of carefully placed hot stones to relax the areas around your spine and lower back, while your therapist works magic on your neck, arms and feet to dissolve tension areas. Ultimate relaxation at its best, isn’t it?
