Deluxe, ultra-contemporary luxury with service and views to match
Exclusively perched on a hilltop just 20 minutes – via complimentary transfer – from Queenstown Airport and five minutes from the city’s centre, Azur Lodge combines excellent accessibility with unobstructed views of snow-tracked peaks and Lake Wakatipu. It’s a truly awe-inspiring setting that keeps such attractions as Coronet Peak, the Remarkables ski fields and the wine regions within easy reach. If you’re heading into town, you’ll enjoy a complimentary drop off and pickup at a place of your choosing.
Each freestanding villa features 79 square metres of open plan living that incorporates a lounge, dining area and a private sun deck. It’s all done up in delightful blonde wood and ultra-contemporary furnishing – a commitment that extends into the en suites where modern versions of roll top baths look out to unobstructed views of the lake and mountains. Stay comfortable with gas fireplaces, underfloor heating and individual climate control and drink in the view with a complimentary beer or juice from the mini-bar.
When meals are prepared at an open kitchen, you know there’s a certain confidence behind the cooking. It’s here that you can watch your complimentary breakfasts, afternoon teas and evening canapés prepared using locally sourced ingredients. Or, you could take your meals in the comfort of your own villa. In fact, many choose take advantage of their own private sunset views over Lake Wakatipu while enjoying the lodge’s elegantly plated fine dining.
With all these vistas on offer, you’ll want to sample some of the lodge’s excellent activities that get you out into the wild. You’ll be spoilt for choice, whether you’re after something adrenaline inducing – think white water rafting, jet boating and canyoning – or something more scenic – think flightseeing, lake cruises and 4WD trips. In between, there’s everything from hiking, horseriding and skiing to golfing and fishing. Or, you could just take some time out with an in-room massage treatment or yoga session.
