The lodge hosts a total of 32 guests, meaning it is wonderfully cosy and personal, while the staff are on hand to cater to your every desire. There are delightful walks that snake along towards hidden waterfalls, and the lake shorelines. Everywhere you turn, you will be met by stunning vistas of the mountains and their snowy tipped peaks.
The simple and sophisticated interiors blend seamlessly together with the homely feeling of the luxury lodges. Makatauri Lodge doesn't have the stiff feel of a 5-Star luxury resort, but instead a homely and cosy combination, where guests can dine in the library or privacy of their own suite. Enjoy the mesmerising views over three of New Zealand's most incredible peaks: The Remarkable, Cecil Peak and Walter Peak.
WINE AND DINE
Head chef Jonathan Rogers changes the menu at Matakauri Lodge daily, tailoring the changing seasonal and local products into the menus, ensuring each guest tastes the traditional flavours of New Zealand. The setting from which to enjoy the delicious menu are for you to decide, whether you want to enjoy it from the sophisticated dining room, or the cosy courtyard.
Being part of Queenstown, the adventure capital of the world means Matakauri has only the most exciting experiences. Take a helicopter ride over to the spectacular Milford Sound, landing on snowy white glaciers and gliding over bristly mountain peaks. Discover the surrounding area with guided walks, wandering to Moke Lake through the beech forest and grassy farmland or cruise on Lake Wakatipu on the TSS Earnslaw steamship, stepping back in time.
