About Matakauri Lodge

The Matakauri Lodge sits in one of New Zealand’s most scenic locations.  This 12-suite property is just a few footsteps from Lake Wakatipu, a beautiful body of water framed by stunning mountain peaks.  Each suite, whether it is in a separate villa or part of the main lodge, offers views of the water from its private porch and expansive sitting area.  These postcard-like panoramas are certainly the hallmark of Matakauri, but they are only part of its attractiveness.   The central district of Queenstown, one of the most charming cities on New Zealand's South Island, is only a few minutes away from Matakauri.

The Matakauri Lodge sits in one of New Zealand’s most scenic locations.  This 12-suite property is just a few footsteps from Lake Wakatipu, a beautiful body of water framed by stunning mountain peaks.  Each suite, whether it is in a separate villa or part of the main lodge, offers views of the water from its private porch and expansive sitting area.  These postcard-like panoramas are certainly the hallmark of Matakauri, but they are only part of its attractiveness.   The central district of Queenstown, one of the most charming cities on New Zealand's South Island, is only a few minutes away from Matakauri. In addition to comfort-filled bedrooms, each suite boasts a spacious sitting area enhanced with an open fireplaces.  A walk-in closet and dual-vanity bathroom (which also features an oversized bath) add to the level of elegance, while flat screen televisions, wi-fi, and other state-of-the-art entertainment options will appease even the most tech-savvy guests. Larger groups (of up to eight guests) can stay in the 5,000-square-foot Owner’s Cottage.  Like each of the 12 suites, the Cottage features panoramic views of the lake from the sitting area.  Guests staying in the cottage can also enjoy access to a Jacuzzi located on the main balcony. Framed by pines on one side and the lake on the other, Matakauri’s onsite spa serves up holistic relaxation while still allowing guests to enjoy their beautiful surroundings.  Massages, facials, and holistic body-care treatments are among the menu of services at the spa. In addition to enjoying the scenery from the Matakauri’s grounds, guests can travel around the central Otago region, enjoying a number of noteworthy attractions.  From photography safaris on the shores of Lake Wakatipu to tours of the time-tested wineries and art galleries of the South Island to sightseeing tours on quad bike or horseback, there is an almost endless list of memory-worthy activities. What to do Enjoy the unmatchable views of Lake Wakatipu from your private balcony or suite-side porch. Spend an evening in Queenstown, one of the world’s most attractive and charming small cities. Visit the the best wineries in New Zealand before returning for a relaxing massage at Matakauri’s onsite spa. Images Courtesy of Matakauri Lodge
