Blanket Bay

96 Editor Rating
Scale of 90-100

Splendid sanctuary along the shores of Lake Wakatipu with a majestic backdrop of snowcapped peaks, a scenic 45-minute drive from Queenstown. Handsome lakeside rooms and 700-square-foot Lodge/Chalet junior suites comprise the 12 distinctive accommodations, the suites having stone fireplaces and huge private terraces with lake and mountain vistas. The stone-and-timber main lodge is dominated by an atmospheric Great Room with beamed ceilings, massive rock fireplaces and towering picture windows; also wood-paneled bar-lounge and meal venues ranging from a formal dining room and wine cellar to a sunset-facing terrace. Gym, outdoor seasonal lap pool, Jacuzzi and spa suite; fly-fishing, mountain biking, parachuting, kayaking and heli-skiing also available. No children under age 10.
