Meeting Newz Septeber / October 2022

MEETING IN THE RAINFOREST Being about half an hour’s drive from Auckland’s CBD while providing a relaxed atmosphere in a rainforest setting has always been a major selling point for Waitakere Resort & Spa. [ AUCKL AND Post Covid, the resort is again proving an attractive option for corporate groups seeking face to face meetings away from distractions. Managing director, Reg Nevill-Jackson says Mondays to Fridays are seeing a strong return of corporates keen to meet in person and reduce the reliance on virtual discussions. “Right now we are seeing groups focusing heavily on business and reconnecting but we envisage that in the future they will be increasingly looking to activities and team building opportunities.” The rainforest setting means team building options such as waterfall abseiling or adventure races can be organised. Nevill-Jackson says the resort is well suited to groups wanting to build a wellness component into their events and to corporates wanting to reward their staff in a healthy way. The Wairua Day Spa provides quality treatments using products such as the Pure Fiji range. It is situated by a modern yoga studio and is close to the resort’s swimming pool.
