Half Day Martinborough Winery Tour from Wellington

104 reviews
An hour or so north of Wellington, Martinborough is fast making a name for itself as one of the Southern Hemisphere’s leading wine regions. Each weekend, Wellingtonians make the trek over the Remutakas to escape to this European-style wine village. This small group tour is a convenient way to visit Martinborough. There’s no need to stress about driving on country backroads, and no need to plan the day’s itinerary - leaving you to focus on the wine and the iconic scenery.

I had an intuitive Balinese massage with Suz. It was incredible, she uses great techniques and massages the whole body including feet and hands. The essential oils used were beautiful too, highly recommended. Sauna beforehand was wonderful too. I went on aTuesday which is women only.

I visited the Retreat a number of times during a long holiday in Wellington. The sauna is European style, i.e. expect nudity of both sexes and an atmosphere about as sexual as an afternoon tea party on the vicarage lawn. The management ask patrons to wear a towel round the waist, but on my visits this was largely ignored by both sexes, the lighting in the sauna is subdued anyway and when showering and using the plunge pool everyone is naked. A great experience one I shall repeat on my next visit.

I visited Tory Urban Retreat for the first time for a 45 minute massage and 30 minute sauna. I went on a “mixed” day and was the only woman at the sauna, but did not feel at all uncomfortable. All the other (dude) patrons were courteous and kept to spa rules. The sauna was spacious, clean, and relaxing. The plunge pool was great, and there are lounge chairs to rest in. The massage I had was first rate. There were towels instead of linens, but this wasn’t a big deal (particularly for the cost). The masseuse was highly skilled. This was the best massage I’ve had in Wellington. I thought about giving this four stars, as the facility is a bit bare bones, but for the price point (30 min sauna, towel hire, and 45 min massage for $74), cleanliness, professionalism, and ease of atmosphere, it gets top marks. I plan to visit regularly. A hidden gem in Wellington.

Lot of men were nude and not covering their privates even if it was a mixed day. So it was a bit strange for me, not what I was expecting for a relaxing moment. By the way, the staff was often coming in and they didn't say anything regarding the nudity.

Response from Anatola W, Manager at Tory Urban Retreat
Responded 12 Apr 2019
It is a Finnish Sauna and therefore there is an element of nudity involved - we are sorry that you felt this way. We try extremely hard to make our space enjoyable by all and this is reflected in the fact that we have so many people who regularly come to our establishment and absolutely love it here. Our accommodating staff are very approachable and are always happy to go the extra mile to help any patrons out. They would have addressed the situation for you immediately if you had gone to talk with them. It's such a shame that you felt that you had to give us a harsh one star review rather than come to talk to us or email us (or use the feedback forms that we provide in every locker). We are more than happy to refund you your money if you would like to get in contact. Thank you, Tory Urban Retreat Management
