Marlborough Men

“Hello hello, we’re currently staying at the Montana Lodge Motel in Blenheim. Tariffs begin at NZ $ 75. A nice peaceful place to bring the kids.”

“On our first day, we took a trip around the Blenheim market place in the middle of town, exploring the shops and café. We finally stopped off at a restaurant for wine and a quick meal. Post Lunch, we hired cycles and took a ride on a wine trail! We visited the Allan Scott Wine Estates. The winery comprises 80 hectares of vineyards surrounding the wineries. The wineries specialize in Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Gris to name a few. Suffice to say that we took a greedy taste of every possible wine.”

“Now here’s a bit of advice from a Marlborough Man, if you’re planning on drinking copious amounts of wine, don’t hire a cycle! Well, you can only imagine what a time we had cycling back to the Motel. We crashed early and decided to wake early and check out the spa at The BEC Spa Resort.”

“The BEC Spa turned out to be a dream. It is situated in a secluded hilltop against the backdrop of mountains and overlooks countless vineyards. We spent most of the morning chilling out in the spa pool and steam room. I did something called shiatsu body therapy. It’s a Japanese work of art, really. It’s pretty much like acupuncture. Rishi went in for the Swedish massage! He thought it might mean a massage given by Swedish women, but instead it was a massage using aromatherapy. We landed up spending the entire day at the resort. We did nothing but sleep, eat and pamper ourselves, which I think we deserved. There’s so much to see and do here that you end up burning a lot of calories and the best part of it is that you don’t really feel tired at all. We’re supposed to leave Marlborough tomorrow evening, but there’s still much to see here. Rishi wants to check out a casino here in NZ. I’m not sure if Marlborough has a Casino, but we’re going to check anyway. Keep you posted.”
