‘Beautiful Lakeside Serenity, Nearby Active Adventures’

Named by Tatler Magazine as one of the “World’s 101 Best Hotels”, Matakauri Lodge is perfectly positioned on the edge of Lake Wakatipu, seven minutes from Queenstown and overlooking the Remarkables ranges. Queenstown is known as the adventure capital of New Zealand and there’s a variety of activities nearby such as bungy jumping, sky diving, snow and heli-skiing, hiking and boat rides. If this is all a bit too active for you, the lodge offers plenty in terms of relaxation including a pool, spa, sauna, massage services and three private beaches nearby. However you choose to spend your day you can enjoy modern New Zealand cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner surrounded by breath-taking vistas from the windows of the lodge’s main dining room and sleep within the rustic main lodge or accommodation nestled in a forest overlooking the lake and mountains.



In Our Opinion

‘It’s a fantastic place to come for lakeside serenity surrounded by mountain ranges and in close enough proximity to Queenstown for cafes, restaurants and further activities and exploration.’

Choose from accommodation within the main lodge or nestled in a forest overlooking Lake Wakatipu and the mountains, all styled by acclaimed interior designer Virginia Fisher.
