Experience wellness at its best at Cape Kidnappers


The experience of healing powers by Northland Manuka honey is definitely a must-try! A Manuka Honey Healing Cocoon treatment, can improve skin appearance, balance skin’s PH level, and help clear away dead cell debris to keep skin clean and fresh. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect. During this signature treatment, guests are pampered with a Manuka honey scrub, creamy Manuka honey wrap, and a mini Manuka facial.

This overwhelming therapy can be tried at the edge of a Totara forest by Kauri Cliffs’ spa, overlooking a verdant fern glen and a winding stream. Each treatment room, including the lodge’s stunning couple’s room, has floor-to-ceiling views and opens onto a private outdoor patio with forest surroundings and native birdsong.
