Matakauri Lodge in Queenstown, New Zealand

Tucked into ten acres of pine forest on magnificent Lake Wakatipu, just minutes from Queenstown on New Zealand's South Island, Matakauri Lodge is a serene wilderness retreat. Lodge suites and freestanding villas designed in harmony with the environment feature fireplaces, two-person tubs and private garden terraces that gaze across mountain and lake views. Staying here is all about relaxation, whether you're playing chess in the library, indulging in a tailor-made massage session in the Spa Pavilion or sipping a fine wine over an al fresco, sunset dinner.

Outdoor enthusiasts will find Queenstown a marvelous playground. Get your adrenaline pumping by bungee jumping off Kawarau Suspension Bridge. Spend a day whitewater rafting, heli-skiing or hang gliding. Romantics can take a hot air balloon ride over Wakatipu Basin while the sun is rising, and oenophiles can sample the excellent Pinot Noirs of the Central Otago Wine Country. From the grand natural beauty of Fiordland National Park to the quaint village-like atmosphere of Queenstown, your days will be fulfilling and memorable.

The three days we spend at the Matakauri Lodge were among the best experiences we have had at any of the leading travel properties we have visited over a lifetime of travel to fabulous hotels and resorts. The combination of the first-rate accomodations with the spectacular and unparalleled views of the lake and mountains was only surpassed by the quality and personal service of the staff. If you are going to New Zealand, this Lodge is a must on your itinerary.

The lodge is beautiful. The view of the lake is outstanding. The rooms are big, they have a living room with the tv which can also be watched from the bedroom. The bathroom is on the other side and its a bit awkward as you have to go down stairs to the living room and then up to the bathroom. Service is fantastic and the food is very good. Queenstown is only a short drive from the lodge.

My wife and I have enjoyed our stay at Matakauri. The property is amazing and has wonderful views of the lake. The staff was always anticipating our needs and made it a great trip. For mountain bike lovers, there are great trails right at the lodge.

The Matakauri Lodge is what dreams are made of. We attended the Lodge for a very special wedding and were immediately amazed with the service and style of the Lodge the minute we set foot in the carpark. We were greeted warmly and professionally, as if we were family, right from the beginning. When taken to our room for the night, we were lost for words. The furnishings, the outlook available at each room- into the hills and across the water; we could have spent the rest of our lives there, and been very happy. The quality of the linen, mattress, shower, and bath was second to none; we have simply never had better. The wedding itself was the most memorable, special occasion we have been a part of. Matakauri Lodge matched a beautifully presented wedding destination with exquisite food and an array of fine quality drinks. The service from the staff was exceptional. Breakfast in the morning was well presented and executed, we have absolutely no constructive feedback to give, just praise, lots and lots of praise. We shall never forget the opulence and professionalism that encompasses this Lodge and the staff that work there. We shall remember it forever.
