Manuka honey new zealand

Wharekauhau Country Estate was an early pioneer in New Zealand’s luxury lodge industry.

Now Wharekauhau’s world renowned spa – Hauora– is teaming up with PURITI to offer a signature facial using New Zealand’s most superior Mānuka honey, for a luxurious skincare wellness experience you can only find in New Zealand.

Hauora’s new ‘Mānuka Honey Signature Facial’ features a warm, silky facial made using PURITI’s native Mānuka honey UMF 20+.

PURITI’s Mānuka honey is rich in nutrients and has powerful anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. When applied to the skin, it works to cleanse, heal, and revitalise.

As leading authorities in the wellness field, Hauora and PURITI have worked together to design the Mānuka Honey Signature Facial to make the most the powerful beneficial properties of PURITI.  

The Hauora Spa’s Mānuka honey facial cleanses pores and protects skin from acne, infection and inflammation. It also promotes skin healing and tissue regeneration for softness and hydration. Finally, it infuses the skin with replenishing nutrients to banish dullness and wrinkles and reveal firmer, brighter, more youthful-looking skin.

“Wharekauhau is a leader in showcasing the best New Zealand has to offer,” says Adam Boot, PURITI’s International Brand Manager. “That makes for a natural partnership with PURITI since we are committed to producing only the purest and most powerful New Zealand Mānuka honey. The many proven beneficial powers of PURITI’s native Mānuka honey UMF 20+ are a perfect match for the Hauora Spa philosophy of total health and wellbeing.”

“We’re excited to bring the wellness benefits of PURITI Mānuka honey to the Hauora Spa and to share our highest UMF Mānuka honey with both local and international guests who visit Wharekauhau, and we’re confident they’re going to fall in love with this brand-new luxurious skincare and wellness experience that’s 100% exclusive to New Zealand.”

The new Mānuka Honey Signature Facial is $255 for 60 minutes. Bookings can be made through the Hauora Spa website:
