Matakauri Lodge

Matakauri Lodge

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.

Mountain-view rooms

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.

Dining delights

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.

Unequalled activities

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?
