Congratulations to the All Blacks! 

Mollies has been busy these last few weeks hosting some international stars who had flown in for the World Cup - we just said good-bye to a family who were with us for just under 2 weeks from Australia.

Well....we want to keep celebrating - well the whole year should be a celebration.
We have some wonderful events coming up and we invite you to view our
"UPCOMING EVENTS" page to see some wonderful talent that we will be hosting here.

On 3rd November - we have Hannah Willemse a talented pianist who will perform for our guests for 1 hour.

12th November - Mollies together with other notable restaurants like The Depot, Soul, and Clooney to name a few will host dinners at our respective establishments where the proceeds for the evening will be donated to the "Garden to Table Trust". 

"Well known Auckland food personality Catherine Bell started Garden to Table in 2009, and modelled it around Stephanie Alexander’s Kitchen Garden project in Australia. The programme began with three schools and now supports seven – Owairaka, Peninsula, Dawsons Road, East Tamaki, Meadowbank, and Edendale Primaries in Auckland, and Moanataiari in Thames. Many children, their families and wider communities are benefiting from these programmes, which have proven positive effects, including boosting attendance, increasing children’s willingness to try new foods and engaging non-academic learners.

The money raised will be used both to support the existing programmes, and to
allow more primary schools from throughout the country join the Garden to Table programme. "

26th November - Jason Bae - pianist.  Mollies will be hosting a 3 course dinner and wines and listen to Jason Bae play.  $130.00 pp for food & wine package.  Will be a great night - and is ideal for those corporates wanting to celebrate xmas a little early - or if you have forgotten to book a venue for xmas.

For further details on any of the above email: reception@mollies.co.nz or Phone 09 3763489
or checkout our "UPCOMING EVENTS" page on our blog.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy the sunshine......

The Sanctuary Day Spa at Mollies welcomes all natural skincare range, Sodashi

Wholeness, purity and radiance.  This is the vision for your restoration at the peaceful day spa at Mollies boutique hotel, sequestered in Auckland’s leafy St Mary’s Bay.  It stems from the natural therapies of Sodashi, the exclusive range of nurturing essences and extracts that are now at the heart of the very personal, garden spa experience at Mollies.

Launching the new range of therapeutic, pampering treatments at Mollies, general manager Joanna Bourke commented on the rare philosophy that attracted this awarded Relais & Chateaux hotel to choose Sodashi.
“As soon as I felt the touch of Sodashi, totally free of chemicals, mineral oil, synthetics or animal-based ingredients, I knew this would take the spa experience at Mollies to a new level of luxury for our house guests and day visitors.  Megan Larsen, who founded these gentle and effective treatments, is a New Zealander who is now enjoying international acclaim.  Her vision of peace and beauty through a natural and holistic range of products has taken Sodashi to spas in the Middle East, Paris, the Maldives, and now here to Auckland at Mollies.  We are the only city location in New Zealand that offers spa treatments using these ethical, lifestyle products.”

Sodashi products and therapies, unparalleled in performance and purity, are highly regenerating for the skin and impart a deep sense of wellbeing to spirit and mind, says the company founder Megan Larsen.  Speaking from a working visit to Ireland, she comments: “For total relaxation and renewal, the Sanctuary Day Spa at Mollies is a true oasis of calm in the city of Auckland. It has been a delight to infuse the essence of Sodashi into this beautiful spa to provide a more holistic approach to beauty and wellbeing.

“Mollies and Sodashi share a strong synergy, in that we are both seeking to offer the finest experience and results for the guest in a very special way.”

Mollies spa menu includes massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, presented in a spirit of genuine care by qualified, fulltime therapists.  With dappled light from its garden setting, the fresh, fragrant spa welcome lounge leads to comfortable, inviting, private treatment rooms.  The spa has its own entrance off the secure brick courtyard and carpark terrace.

Relaxing at a quiet, private table under the trees of Mollies’ tiered gardens, after or between treatments, perhaps with an assiette of healthful or indulgent delicacies from chef Lance Tripp,  you would hardly realise that the city is just a breath away.  Fashionable Ponsonby adjoins St Mary’s Bay, offering many of the city’s best shops for fashion and food, with a range of bars and restaurants in strolling distance.

A breeze of innovation has recently brought an inspiring collection of New Zealand art to the stylish walls of Mollies, so a visit to the hotel reception rooms and crystal-themed restaurant is recommended.  Spa, restaurant and suite packages are also available.
