Matakauri Lodge, Queenstown

This Relais and Chateau property provides the height of luxury in a quintessentially New Zealand setting. An alpine lakeside retreat, guests can expect sumptuous surroundings, spoiling service and plenty of activities in the surrounding area.


Just seven minutes from Queenstown, and on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, Matakauri Lodge really does offer the best of both urban and rural New Zealand. Where 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 and boast stunning views across the lake. The Matakauri Owner’s Cottage sleeps up to eight people and even comes with a private chef when requested. This is luxury living at its finest.

Why we like it

As well as offering a range of activities to its guests, 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.
