Wai Ariki Hot Springs and Spa in Rotorua is offering a unique opportunity for job seekers to be a part of a world-class team. With its opening set for mid-2023, Wai Ariki is now looking for people to fill various roles, including spa therapists, manuhiri (guest) experience kaimahi (staff), building attendants, and lifeguards.
Developed and owned by Pukeroa Oruawhata Group (Nga¯ti Whakaue) and managed by Belgravia Leisure, Wai Ariki is Aotearoa New Zealand’s newest wellness and spa experience. It combines the healing geothermal waters of the region with the centuries-old legacy of Nga¯ti Whakaue culture, healing practices, and manaakitanga (caring hospitality).
Wai Ariki General Manager, Rania Sears (Nga¯ti Whakaue) says the roles offer a unique opportunity to join a world-class team and draw on the legacy of the local iwi to bring the authentic wellness and spa experience to life.
“I’m extremely excited about these opportunities for both Nga¯ti Whakaue wha¯nau, other members of our local community, and those looking to relocate to Rotorua to apply for these exciting positions,” says Ms Sears. “These people will be part of something extremely special, coming on board at the beginning of the Wai Ariki journey and part of a team that will seamlessly bring together the healing qualities of geothermal waters, authentic culture and traditions, and of course, exceptional and authentic spa and wellness experiences. “Nau mai haere mai, come and join the wha¯nau!”
Wai Ariki offers a unique opportunity for spa therapists to combine their own experience with local culture, traditional wellness practices, and hospitality to take guests on a unique healing and relaxation journey. The roles are also open to building attendants, lifeguards, and other staff members who will play a crucial role in delivering a world-class spa and wellness experience to guests.
With its beautiful location on the shores of Lake Rotorua and a commitment to providing an authentic experience, Wai Ariki promises to be a must-visit destination for spa enthusiasts and those seeking a unique wellness experience.
