Which is more impressive? The outside views of the magnificent lake and the mountains marching across the skyline – or the interiors with their twinkling chandeliers and original artworks?

Lake Tekapo Lodge likes to do things differently. So you’ll be greeted by a personal welcome – and a canine statue at the door. Inside, you’ll find the hallway is actually an art gallery featuring contemporary local art. You’ll find a dining room with a three metre, black lacquered table. And you’ll find individually themed rooms; the height of style, with features like crystal chandeliers. Not to mention stunning views over the lake.

But Lake Tekapo Lodge also features a unique outdoors, offering a range of different activities. Make the lodge part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to New Zealand and you’ll be able to play golf, ski in season or go star-gazing from the top of Mount John. You could even see the Aurora Australis.
