With the first snow settling on the mountains it is time to plan your winter getaway and there is no better holiday destination than Queenstown’s leading luxury golf and lifestyle resort – Millbrook Resort.  Offering a variety of accommodation packages to suit every type of traveller, and a dedicated concierge team to help you make the most of your Central Otago escape, where else would you rather visit this winter!? 

In need of a little itinerary inspiration for your upcoming winter-cation? Below is some of our team’s favourite ‘must dos’ in Queenstown to take you from a memorable day up the slopes, to a relaxed day out and about sampling the local vintages.


If you are heading to Queenstown to let your adventurous side shine, then there is no better place to be than the local ski fields.  With four to choose from, each ski field offers a variety of terrain, with the closest located a short 20-minute drive from Millbrook Resort. Let the Millbrook team take care of your every need with their all-inclusive Snow and Stay Package.  Not only is your accommodation and breakfast included, the team will also organise your snow gear, return transport, lift passes for Cardrona, and a delicious Millbrook mulled wine is the perfect night cap whilst you soak up the stunning scenery.  Now featuring Smithy’s Smoke House – Millbrook’s newest alfresco whisky bar – and three outdoor hot tubs, the five-star luxury resort really is the ideal place to end a fun filled day up in the snow. 


Need a bit of rest and relaxation away from the hustle and bustle? Millbrook’s prized service and tranquil surroundings will have you unwinding from the moment you arrive.  The resort’s award-winning day spa will rejuvenate tired minds and bodies, and the winter Southern Alps Spa Treatment will have your muscles soothed.  If you decide to leave the picturesque surrounds of Millbrook then make sure you treat yourself to Onsen Hot Pools, a heavenly Salt Float or a relaxed stroll around the Queenstown Gardens.  Escape for a long weekend when you book Millbrook’s three-night Winter Escape Package which includes luxurious Deluxe Studio accommodation, breakfast daily and $250 credit to spend at any of the resort outlets. Two-night Escape packages are also available from just $629. 

Wine and Dine

The options are seemingly endless for a gastronomic experience in Queenstown.  Wine tours can take you down to Bannockburn or Gibbston Valley, and a tasty cheese sampling or delicious lunch can all be included.  If you want to stay closer to home, then the dining options throughout Queenstown and Arrowtown are plentiful and Millbrook’s free shuttle service will have your transport needs covered. The five-night Gourmet Getaway Package at Millbrook offers excellent value and will have your taste buds dancing with daily breakfast, mulled wine, pizza and pinot, and a four course Taste of Millhouse dinner all included throughout your stay. 


If you are planning a trip to Queenstown and luxury is in the forefront of your mind, then there are several five-star accommodation options to suit you at Millbrook.  Top of the line is Millbrook’s exclusive Luxury Retreat range which encompasses four unique properties that offer guests complete privacy whilst still having complete access to all of the resort services should they be required.  If you are wanting to get out and explore Queenstown then your personal concierge can look after your wishes - should it be private transfers by helicopter, luxurious dining destinations, personal tours of the high country, or bespoke star gazing experiences - the list is endless.
