Touch of Spice Property Management, under the part ownership of Jacqui Spice and Bridget and Aaron Murphy had been formed to assist with the growth of the Touch of Spice Private Villa Collection.
Ms Spice said the Murphys were the ''perfect couple'' to manage that side of the business, with a wealth of knowledge and experience managing five-star resorts around the world.
The couple, who live in Queenstown, previously managed the five-star Yasawa Island Resort and Spa in Fiji.
The new partnership enabled Ms Spice to focus on sales and customer service.
