Description

Proudly embracing the dynamism of Lake Wakatipu’s great outdoors, Matakauri Lodge, situated on New Zealand’s South Island, boasts views of ‘The Big Three’, a mesmerising cinematic vision that is almost surreal: The Remarkables mountain range, Cecil Peak and Walter Peak. Rejoicing in its splendid position just seven minutes from Queenstown, this Relais and Chateaux property has a number of viewing platforms from which to view this wealth of sublime beauty; a large infinity pool, a courtyard with an outdoor fireplace and a lounge area. Float by the edge of the Lodge’s serene infinity pool, luxuriate in the Jacuzzi and bear witness to The Remarkables cutting a striking sight against the sky, or simply amble around at your own pace, making the most of alpine lakeside living.  Perfect for the traveller in search of a new discovery, the Lodge offers extraordinary luxury travel experiences. Climb aboard a helicopter and lift off from the Lodge’s rural helipad for an exclusive tour over alpine lakes, rivers, forests, glacial valleys and ice capped mountains - New Zealand is blessed with nature that is evergreen.

The decor at Matakauri Lodge has an understated, classic aspect, courtesy of acclaimed local designer Virginia Fisher. A tapestry of clean lines in glass, stone and timber lends itself to a clean and stylish aesthetic. Reflecting the cosiness of this charming lakeside town, the lodge has many open fireplaces and a personal art collection belonging to the owners, including ceramic Picasso pieces and pieces by revered local landscape artists.  Choose one of the beautiful twelve Suites, or the four-bedroom Owner’s Cottage for the lap of luxury, with a hot tub on the balcony.

Dining at Matakauri Lodge is entirely based around guest preference; choose to eat by a soothing and softly-lit fireside table in the dining area, your own suite, the library, the Remarkables Patio or a private dining room. Queenstown is a region with an exciting, established food and wine scene, offering the promise of delectable local treats. The Lodge’s Head Chef Jonathan Rogers says; “My cuisine is heavily influenced by the landscapes and environs of Central Otago... I work closely with a number of local purveyors and farmers to source the finest quality produce that showcases the very best of the region.” A daily-changing menu serves the freshest and most exciting flavours of the moment, keeping dishes diverse and fresh.
