October 11, 2013 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Queenstown’s five-star Millbrook Resort has once again beat off stiff national competition to take out the title of New Zealand’s Best Golf Resort at the travel industry’s most prestigious awards ceremony held in Dubai earlier this month.

The multi award-winning golf and lifestyle resort, set on 500 acres of grounds near Arrowtown, won the top spot for the third year running, making it one of the most lauded golf courses in Australasia and the world. Millbrook’s Coronet Nine course with views of Coronet Peak

Widely-referred to as ‘The Oscars of the Travel World’, the World Travel Awards (WTA) celebrates those companies and brands that “push the boundaries of industry excellence in product and service”.

Millbrook Director of Golf, Brian Spicer said the award win was an important recognition in the lead up to the Resort’s inclusion in next year’s New Zealand Open.

“The entire team has worked hard in the last five or so years to ensure we maintain our high standards, providing one of the best golfing experiences in the country.  We’re certainly up there with the world’s best,” said Mr Spicer.

“Our hard work has certainly paid off, not only with the acknowledgement of this prestigious award for the third consecutive year, but also being co-host of the 2014 NZ Open- which is a huge privilege.”

“Our dedication to providing world-class facilities and five-star service has enabled us to become part of the NZ Open for 2014,” Mr Spicer said.

“People come from all over the world to stay and play Milbrook’s greens and we’re constantly reminded by people of how beautiful the course and surrounds are.

“The NZ Open will allow us to showcase Millbrook to a worldwide audience,” said Mr Spicer.

Millbrook took out the WTA title after months of intense voting by industry organisations, past guests and industry leaders and was up against some of New Zealand’s best courses; Kauri Cliffs, Lakes Resort Pauanui, Terrace Downs Resort, and The Farm Cape Kidnappers.

“We’ve recently completed a full renovation and relaying of the original greens at Millbrook.”

“They’ve never looked better and we have 27 holes of fantastic golf to play for people of all levels.

“Surrounded by the dramatic scenery of The Remarkables mountains and Coronet Peak, there’s simply nowhere in the world like Millbrook for a round of golf,” Mr Spicer said.

World Travel Awards President and Founder Graham E. Cooke said Australasia was a hotly contested region for the awards.

“The winners continue to serve as an example of the most luxurious and innovative brands with unique hospitality products and services,” said Mr Cooke.

“The recipients strive to set the highest possible bar to raise the standards of excellence in travel and tourism.”
