Blanket Bay



Editor Rating
Scale of 90-100

A scenic 45-minute drive from Queenstown, this splendid sanctuary stands along the shores of Lake Wakatipu with a majestic backdrop of snowcapped peaks. Handsome lakeside rooms, 700-square-foot Chalets, a four-bedroom villa and a self-contained four-bedroom residence make up the 12 lodgings, the suites having huge terraces with lake and mountain vistas. The stone-and-timber main lodge, comprising a wood-paneled bar-lounge, is dominated by an atmospheric Great Room with beamed ceilings, massive rock fireplaces and towering picture windows. Other venues available for excellent meals range from a formal dining room and wine cellar to a sunset-facing terrace. The property also encompasses a gym, an outdoor lap pool, a Jacuzzi and a spa suite. The opportunities for fishing here are virtually limitless. Mountain biking, parachuting, kayaking and heli-skiing can also be arranged. Children under the age of 10 are not permitted in the main lodge or Chalets.
