Make the most of your time in New Zealand and stay at Matakauri Lodge, an exclusive luxury retreat located in a stunning setting that feels like the end of the Earth.

Sipping your complimentary pre-dinner drink, you close your eyes and think back to your first day at Matakauri Lodge. Friends told you that a trip to New Zealand’s South Island was a must when you informed them of your plans to visit this incredible country, and now, after having spent just a few hours in this magical place, you’re glad they were so adamant.

Queenstown is only a few minutes away but your attention transferred quickly to Matakauri Lodge as you approached it this morning. Mountains rose up in the distance and the waves upon Lake Wakatipu flashed in the sunlight next to the hotel.

Soon after you entered your “lodgings,” one of just eleven fabulously comfortable and stylishly furnished suites and villas. All come with private terraces and offer views of the Queenstown lakeside, and nearby mountains.

Then you looked at a list of activities you were thinking of trying in Queenstown the next day: white water rafting, paragliding, bungee jumping, jet boating and heli-skiing, just to name a few. But hiking, horse riding, wineries, trout fishing, scenic flights to places like the unforgettable Milford Sound and hidden lakes at the Lodge beckon as well...
