Stylish hideaway resort on the shore of spectacular Lake Wakatipu, just 10 minutes from Queenstown. The property offers stunning views of its fjordlike setting, with The Remarkables mountain range rising impressively above the blue-green water. The lodge contains just 12 lavish suites, styled by interior designer Virginia Fisher, each with its own private porch, sitting area with open fireplace, walk-in wardrobe and bath with oversize tub; four-bedroom Owner’s Cottage also available. Public areas include lounges, a library and a dining room, where refined “modern New Zealand” cuisine is served. Aside from an extensive menu of outdoor activities, the property offers a fitness center, large infinity pool and complete spa.
