In the Forest and the Edge of a Lake
Rising from the shore of Lake Wakatipu, Matakauri Lodge’s beautiful villas welcome guests to elegant rooms, living room with a fireplace, terrace and the spectacular view of this exceptional lake and surrounding mountains. The garden, with a fountain and reflecting pool, is the perfect place to set off for a hike in the forest that surrounds the Lodge or visit the Spa and enjoy its full range of services like its relaxing massages and the outdoor Jacuzzi.
Chef Christopher Smith’s cuisine is a delight and a true measure of his art, and the dining room is the best place to enjoy it after savoring an appetizer near the fireplace. The wine cellar jealously guards New Zealand’s best wines and the library is the perfect place to relax in the afternoons.
Matakauri is a 10 minute ride from Queenstown and all the activities offered in the area such as skiing, golf, kayaking, taking a helicopter ride or shopping. Matakauri is an exceptional place, a cozy fusion of art, luxury and elegance framed by a charming view.
