It’s Friday and at the Touch of Spice office here in Queenstown, we’re feeling day dreamy. With levels 2 and 3 back in action, a dusting of clouds (and fingers crossed, snow) over the mountains, and the simple fact it’s a Friday afternoon, it’s only natural for the mind to start wandering to paradise – where the water is crystal clear, the sand is soft, the sun is shining and a freshly made frozen margarita has just been handed to you. If you weren’t dreaming already – I think we can assume you are now!
Here at Touch of Spice, we have something to suit every need, want, and desire. Whether your dreaming of an escape to a mountain top lodge in the wild, a stunning Private Villa with not one but two private beaches, a super yacht where you can watch the dolphins roll by or your very own private island retreat, we can make it happen. We’ve listed below some of our most luxurious, out-of-this-world, above and beyond stays throughout New Zealand – a mixture of our Exclusive Residences, Private Villas and Luxury Lodge Collections because we really do have something to suit everyone’s dream!
