Rosewood Matakauri, Queenstown

Perched on a quiet lakeside bank just outside Queenstown, Rosewood Matakauri is luxury at its most quintessential. Where huge picture frame windows face out onto the peaceful expanse of Lake Wakatipu and a warming fire crackles away inside, this is a true retreat from the world. Immerse yourself in the sumptuous surroundings while the staff indulge you with haute cuisine and sensuous spa treatments and the outdoors tempts you with the area’s infamous sense of adventure.


Just seven minutes from Queenstown, and on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, Rosewood Matakauri really does offer the best of both urban and rural New Zealand. Whether exploring the museums or galleries in town or hiking the mountains that surround it, you can be sure of returning to an elegant haven that evening.

Your room

Suites are filled with homely yet stylish furnishings with one recurring theme in that they all boast stunning views across the lake. But for more space, The Matakauri Four Bedroom Villa will be your home away from home, sleeping up to eight people and with a private chef on hand. This is luxury living at its finest.

Why we like it

As well as offering a range of activities to its guests, Rosewood Matakauri also offers a spa with an extensive list of treatments, and what better way to spend a day than casting your eyes across the magnificent landscape whilst enjoying a massage or pedicure? If you’re flying home from Queenstown make sure you spend a night here first.
