High energy activity blended with relaxationNestled amongst the serenity and majesty of the nearby lakes and mountains
Luxury holidays in Queenstown take you to an idyllic resort town par excellence. With its proximity to the majestic Southern Alps Mountains, the striking Fiordland National Park, four serene lakes and more thrilling activities than anywhere else in New Zealand, Queenstown is the perfect place for an adventure.
Nestled alongside the tranquil Lake Wakatipu, the town offers a wide range of top-class accommodation in spectacular settings. Choose from exquisitely appointed 19th-century townhouse hotels, peaceful lakeside resorts and picturesque hillside lodges, all of which afford superlative views over the nearby Remarkables mountain range and the stunning lake.
Got a taste for adventure?
A haven for adrenaline-junkies, Queenstown is not known as the ‘adventure capital of the world’ for nothing. Take the Skyline Gondola, which soars 400 meters above the town to the observation point on Bob’s Peak. Bungee jump, luge or even swing off the top of it for even more spectacular vistas.
For similar high-octane kicks, be sure to do the ‘Awesome Foursome’: a bungee jump, a speed boat ride, a helicopter ride and a whitewater rafting experience. Take a trip out onto Lake Wakatipu where you can sail by steam boat, jet ski or ‘Hydro Attack’, which soars above and below the water at speeds of up to 80km per hour. If you’re after something more relaxing, the ‘reverse aquarium’, or Underwater Observatory Boat, allows you to meet the fascinating marine life that has made its home in this impressive lake through its glass bottom.
Don’t miss the chance to take a trip to the nearby Sounds. Milford and Doubtful are vast, awesome fiords. Carved over millennia by molten glaciers, these geological forms will leave you speechless with their breathtaking beauty. You can explore them with a top-of-the-range boat cruise or a scenic helicopter flight and catch sight of the stunning wildlife and waterfalls that slither down the cliff faces.
After you’re done exploring, slip into a comforting hot tub at one of the many relaxing spas in Queenstown. Therapeutic hot pools and massages are the perfect antidote to all the extreme experiences you’ll find here. Once you feel refreshed, it’s time to hit the town and experience the local nightlife.
No luxury holiday in Queenstown is complete without going on a local wine tour. Pinot noirs are particularly famous in the region and make a fantastic accompaniment to many of the fine dining options in the area.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
