The Touch of Spice Difference

The ‘touch’ that people can expect lies in our exceptional customer service and our on-going commitment to providing only the best accommodation and experiences in this legendary destination.

Every one of our clients receives unwavering attention to detail from the moment of enquiry to the end of their adventure in New Zealand. Every traveler’s ideal path is unique, so no two Touch of Spice journeys are ever the same. Our team of luxury tourism specialists work tirelessly to carefully match the right property and/or experience to the right client, ensuring that every desire is fulfilled.

We are skilled in assisting every type of client, from families on once-in-a-lifetime holidays or couples on romantic getaways to international film, music, and sporting celebrities and political dignitaries looking for a tailored experience in this stunning country.

Arranging private jet hire, private gallery viewings, romantic dinners curated by New Zealand’s best chefs, or after hours access to fashion boutiques for that last minute party dress are all in a day’s work for our team of dedicated personal curators and concierges.
