Matakauri Lodge

Seven minutes from Queenstown and spectacularly situated on Lake Wakatipu, Matakauri Lodge is the perfect alpine lakeside retreat - offering luxury accommodation in just eleven suites, each with private terraces looking out to dramatic lakeside and mountain vistas.  
The exclusive Lodge is nestled in one of the world’s most serenely beautiful landscape settings, yet just a few minutes by car from all the attractions of Queenstown and the leisure activities New Zealand’s South Island is renowned for. A range of outdoor pursuits from snow skiing or heli-skiing in winter to fishing and water sports in summer, plus year round hiking and adrenalin sports are on the doorstep, and there are several excellent golf courses to play within easy reach

Food and wine are a highlight of a stay at Matakauri Lodge, as group executive chef Dale Gartland personally tailors menus to guests’ tastes. Guest can choose from a range of dining spots from the main lodge dining room to the cozy upstairs library, or in summer, the Remarkables Terrace with outdoor fireplace and unencumbered views of the lake and the Remarkables and Cecil Peaks mountain ranges.
Matkauri Lodge also offers a fabulous Day Spa, a state of the art fitness center, sauna and an outdoor infinity pool, again all with ultra- spectacular views.
