Recommended for:
Food & wine | Mountains | Relaxation | Spa


Ideally located just seven minutes from the lively centre of Queenstown, Matakauri Lodge sits on the shores of stunning Lake Wakatipu. With breathtaking views over the jagged peaks of the Remarkables mountain range, this lodge is a world away from the hustle and bustle of New Zealand's adventure capital.


Accommodation at Matakauri Lodge consists of just 11 immaculately appointed rooms including one Lodge Room and ten Deluxe Suites, each of which feature a private terrace and living area. Whichever you choose, you'll be treated to views across Lake Wakatipu to the Remarkables. It's all the canvas for the best in contemporary New Zealand design while maintaining a certain charm and intimacy that reflects its spectacular surroundings.


Matakauri Lodge offers a range of superb dining spaces, including the library, dining room, Remarkables patio, courtyard and lounge. And no matter where you dine, head chef Jonathan Rogers will ensure you enjoy a culinary experience to remember. You'll sample the finest modern New Zealand cuisine showcasing only the freshest locally sourced produce on an ever-changing seasonal menu. Pre dinner drinks are served each evening from 6:00pm, and provide a great opportunity to meet fellow guests and enjoy some of New Zealand's best wines as well as a range of beers and spirits. The lodge also serves a sumptuous daily breakfast and light lunch menu.


Located on the edge of a pine forest with uninterrupted views of Lake Wakatipu, the lodge's spa offers a full menu of holistic treatments in a spectacular natural setting. It's the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a day exploring New Zealand's Southern Alps on activities that range from horseback rides and wine tours to quad bike rides and photography safaris. There's also a well-equipped fitness centre for those who haven't quite had their fill of exercise.
