Recharge and relax in the seclusion of your own private chalet and enjoy spectacular panoramic views of New Zealand from the deck. At Minaret Station, each individual residence inspires a feeling of undisturbed tranquillity and harmony with the natural world. From carpets of warm sheepskin and massive king-sized beds these chalets are incredibly luxurious.
A feast of treats
High Country culinary wonders await you in the Minaret Station. By a series of high wooden boardwalks, the exclusive chalets are linked to the Mountain Kitchen. Dine on the local delicacies with fresh produce native to the area.
