The Matakauri Lodge in Queenstown is the perfect destination for an exclusive holiday in New Zealand. With luxurious, spacious rooms and deluxe suites, modern European cuisine, an indulgent spa and a wealth of exciting outdoor activities to try, it’s no wonder this is a firm favourite among guests seeking an exceptional adventure to remember.
Choose from a selection of beautifully proportioned residences, all finely finished in stylish surrounds and comfortable furnishings. Unwind and be inspired by the incredible vistas and your suite. All the beds and bath tubs have been perfectly placed to appreciate the striking views of the mountains. All of these luxurious rooms at the Matakauri Lodge create a feeling of elite luxury combined with private seclusion for true tranquillity. From nooks warmed by crackling fires to decks with inspiring views, each room has a wealth of experiences to offer.
Culinary masterpieces await in this luxury lodge. From the bespoke menu at the hotel’s restaurant, you can enjoy tailor-made dishes from the hotel’s own executive chef. With its ever-changing daily menu, no diner will ever be bored no matter how long they choose to stay. The hotel bar is petite but perfectly proportioned, and exceedingly well stocked with delicious local Otago wines or you can enjoy some pre-dinner libations in the upstairs lounge for a change of scenery.
As you’d expect in the adventure capital of New Zealand, there are incredible amenities for those who are keen to get active. Canyoning, climbing and helicopter rides are readily available as well as access to the private golf course. Horse trekking and kayaking in the beautiful surrounds is a great way to discover New Zealand. After a long day out adventuring, why not rejuvenate your body with a sauna and steam at the spa?

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.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
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.
