Matakauri Lodge is a luxurious, five-star resort in historic Queenstown, New Zealand. From the moment that you arrive in Auckland, you can charter a plane or car to take you to Queenstown and your opulent lodgings. While the car ride will allow you to admire the breathtaking scenery as you seek your destination, the plane will give you an aerial view of some of the most spectacular landscape in the natural world, making a stay at the lodge a much-desired part of New Zealand luxury vacations.
The lodge is located at Lake Wakatipu. From the moment that you arrive, you will witness the remarkable Cecil and Walter Peak mountain ranges just outside of your window. The lodge, being only 7 minutes away from Queenstown, also offers you a virtual alpine lakeside retreat that is perfectly situated in one of the world’s most tranquil and exquisite landscapes. As soon as you arrive, you will be glad that your New Zealand luxury vacation began at the lodge.
You will gain access to beautiful living and dining areas as well as a full-service luxury spa, swimming pool and fitness center. The rooms are bright, colorful and spacious as well as tranquil and serene. Each room is decorated with a fresh and contemporary style and just a hint of glamour that will make you feel like royalty.
For meals, you will be privy to some of the region’s best gourmet foods and the finest local wines. Should you have used one of your excursions out of the lodge to go fishing on the lake, the chefs will even prepare your catch for you by turning it into one of their mouthwatering gourmet creations. You can enjoy your meals in the dining room with other guests, or you can eat your meals privately. Room service is available with just a mention.
If you are looking for a five-star experience and a panoramic view of some of the best mountain scenery that you will ever see just outside of your rooms during your New Zealand luxury vacation, the Matakauri Lodge will certainly provide it.
