Unfortunately the event was cancelled due to cyclone forecasts and conditions.
Paula Watson, tactical sales manager at House of Travel, is a step ahead, having had a brief stay in one of the resort’s high-end residences late last month.
‘Clients have their own guest experience manager (GEM), there is a speed boat to and from the resort 24/7 so there is no need to catch the regular ferry, and the wellness centre can set a full programme for guests during their stay – including suggested items on the menu.
‘These things come at a price, but there is absolutely a market for it out of New Zealand.’
Watson says Six Senses will suit couples, groups celebrating a special occasion, and multi-generational families after a special experience.
The corporate incentive sector and even the ‘sophisticated surfer market’ are other opportunities. As well as the larger residences, the property has one- and two-bedroom pool villas with private sun decks, entertainment systems and fully stocked mini bars.
