Stay at Matakauri Lodge and prepare to behold the most breathtaking, uninterrupted views across Lake Wakatipu towards the big three – The Remarkables, Cecil and Walter Peak. Each of the lodge’s luxurious suites has its own terrace where you can contemplate this dramatic lake and mountain panorama in privacy and comfort. Built from stone, glass and timber, the lodge’s warm interiors have an understated design with clean lines, deep sofas and large cosy armchairs. Walls are adorned with the work of some of New Zealand’s most acclaimed artists.

The property is surrounded by wonderful walking and cycling trails, with bikes available for guests to borrow. On the doorstep of downtown Queenstown, Matakauri is also perfectly positioned to make the most of the ‘adventure capital of the world’ and the adrenaline fuelled experiences it offers – from Milford Sound cruises and heli-hiking to river jetboating and canyon swings (not for the faint-hearted!). In the evening, you can join the lodge team in the main lodge for pre-dinner drinks and canapes, followed by a wonderful meal celebrating the finest New Zealand produce.
