Queenstown’s five-star Millbrook Resort has once again taken out the title of New Zealand’s Best Golf Resort at the travel industry’s most prestigious awards ceremony, the World Travel Awards (WTA), held in Dubai earlier this month.

The multi award-winning golf and lifestyle resort, set on 500 acres near Arrowtown, won the top gong for the third year running, making it one of the most lauded golf courses in Australasia and the world.

Millbrook director of golf, Brian Spicer, said the win was an important recognition in the lead up to 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,” Mr Spicer said.

“We’ve recently completed a full renovation and relaying of the original greens at Millbrook… They’ve never looked better.”

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,” Mr Cooke said.

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