Brackenridge Country Retreat & Spa, Martinborough has the perfect gift for your dad this Fathers’ Day which falls on Sunday 2 September.   The Spa, which has been shortlisted in the NZ Hospitality Awards for Excellence, has partnered with Martinborough Brewery to bring you some terrific options to pamper Dad. Whether you book a treatment for Dad on Fathers’ Day itself or buy Dad a gift voucher valid until the end of October, beer- loving dads are sure to love these unique offers.

“We wanted to come up with something new and fun to make Dads feel special this Fathers’ Day.” said Mrs Sharon Garrett, Spa Managaer, Brackenridge Country Retreat & Spa.

“Hops have some terrific health benefits particularly for the skin.   They help exfoliate and rid the body of dead cells and the active yeasts contain Vitamin B which help rejuvenate and hydrate the skin, while inactive yeasts help balance skin PH levels.”   she added.

The Brackenridge Spa full treatment menu is complemented by these special Fathers’ Day offers:


The perfect remedy for tired, hardworking feet.  Dad’s feet will be immersed into a warmed bath of Hop Elixir beer from Martinborough Brewery.  Relax while our therapists lightly exfoliate your feet and file away any rough skin.  The yeast from the beer bath promotes a purifying and cleansing effect on the feet, while the scrub removes excess skin build up making your feet feel smooth and fresh.  Your feet will be towel dried followed by a pedicure and a leg and foot massage while you sip on a cold Vintage Gold bottled beer from Martinborough Brewery.


Using warmed oil, relax and unwind as our massage therapists melt away any tension and relieve sore muscles with a soothing 55-min Swedish massage.   After the massage enjoy a refreshing cold Vintage Gold from Martinborough Brewery.

Each of the above treatments offer Dad the Vintage Gold brew which is a refreshing Golden Ale showcasing the best of NZ ingredients. It’s brewed with just one hop variety, Wai-iti, which adds a subtle blend of stone fruit.   It’s smooth and quaffable, ideal to complement a spa visit. And for Dads who don’t drink, the Spa will happily offer a Tokyo Lime Green Tea, English Breakfast tea of a Coffee prepared from locally roasted beans.

Relax and unwind at the Brackenridge Spa.   Open 7 days per week from 9am to 5pm the Spa is part of the popular Brackenridge Country Retreat & Spa, located just a 2-minute drive from Martinborough Village.   The Spa facilities include 3 treatment rooms including a couples’ suite, relaxation lounge with fireplace, manicure and pedicure area and retail zone.
