MATAKAURI LODGE

 

Proving to be just minutes outside the bustling quaint Queenstown Village, The Matakauri Lodge proves to offer discerning guests a unique Queenstown experience unlike any other.

 

As one travels through the pine tree-lined roads leading up to the exclusive Matakauri Lodge, a sense of serenity immediately greets arriving guests, welcomed by the weatherboard main lodge, which sits atop a hill overlooking the glorious Lake Wakatipu and snow-capped mountains.

 

Designed by award-winning designer, Virginia Fisher has styled the property with calming tones of brass, terracotta and rust as well as soft furnishings to reflect a humble yet sophisticated setting with the marvellous backdrop as its backyard. Offering luxurious accommodation matched by exemplary service, the Matakauri Lodge features a series of Lodge Rooms, Suites and the spectacular 5,000 square foot, 4-bedroom Owners Cottage.

 

Proving to be one the Queenstown’s most spectacular residences, the 5-million-dollar lakeside home accommodates 8-guests each with their own private suites, ideal for families and couples. Featuring 6 separate outdoor spaces, including a fabulous courtyard and private outdoor jacuzzi, private kitchen, balconies and floor-to-ceiling uninterrupted views overlooking the Remarkables, the cottage is the pinnacle of Queenstown Luxury. Further enhancing the appeal for family travellers, the Owner's Cottage offers a private self-contained comfortable layout, with a study, laundry room and drying room for adventure gear, such as ski boots, after a Winter's day on the slopes.

 

Owned and operated by the Robertson family since 2010, Matakauri Lodge is nestled in one of the world's most serenely beautiful landscape settings. Just a seven-minute drive from all the attractions of Queenstown, the adventure capital of the southern hemisphere, yet seemingly worlds away. Regular guests of the Matakauri Lodge appreciate the welcoming atmosphere where guests and staff are known by a name basis, with nightly dinner drinks and canapes followed by a stellar customised menu by Head Chef Jonathan Rogers, offering unique flavours matched with some of New Zealand’s premium wines.
