Matakauri Lodge, Queenstown

569 Glenorchy-Queenstown Road
Industry rating:

Just minutes from dramatic Queenstown, the alpine Matakauri Lodge is the ultimate lakeside retreat – bordered by mountains, pine trees and crystalline waters. Accommodation is spread across the main lodge and owner’s cottage and all spacious suites and guest rooms offer unrivalled privacy and seclusion, not to mention warm, welcoming décor. The benefits go way beyond the bedroom too – indulge at the onsite spa, take in panoramic views across the lake from the infinity pool or hot tub, and use Matakauri as a base for adventure: think bungy, skydiving, paragliding and canyoning.  

Why we recommend Matakauri Lodge, Queenstown

  • Onsite spa with two treatment rooms, showers and a private decking area
  • Overlooking the awe-inspiring Lake Wakatipu and the pine-bordered Cecil Peak
  • A la carte dining features seasonal, locally-sourced produce, infused with clean and fresh flavour
  • Relais & Chateaux property
  • Outdoor infinity pool and Jacuzzi with stunning lake views

Attractions at Matakauri Lodge, Queenstown

Relax in the Matakauri Spa

Matakauri’s signature treatments are absolutely to die for. Exfoliate and nourish your skin with the ‘Aromasoul’ body scrub; rejuvenate your muscles with a Matakauri facial and back massage; and heal those tired limbs with a back specific mud treatment. And if that’s not enough, complete your experience with unmatched vistas across Lake Wakatipu from the edge of a dense pine forest.

Walk to Bob’s Cove

Historic sights, beaches and fishing – all this is just a few miles from the lodge along the Bob’s Cove Track and Nature Trail. Sometimes called Te Punatapu (the sacred waters), a stroll along the region’s lakeshore is absolutely stunning. For those tackling its undulating landscapes on two wheels, continue onto the Twelve Mile Delta Track for even more lake views, not to mention the filming location for Ithilien Camp in the Lord of the Rings.
