About Us

Spectacularly located on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, Matakauri Lodge looks out to a mesmerising panorama of the big three; The Remarkables and Cecil and Walter peaks.

Just seven minutes from bustling Queenstown, this is an alpine, lakeside retreat, nestled in one of the world’s most strikingly beautiful landscapes.

With clean lines in glass, stone and timber, Matakauri’s own take on luxury is understated and welcoming.

The main lodge consists of a spacious lounge and dining and living areas, all with views of Lake Wakatipu, while accommodation is offered in twelve luxurious guest suites and rooms.

Each suite offers a private porch, a bedroom with sitting area and open fireplace, walk-in wardrobe and bathroom.

The Owner’s Cottage at Matakauri features four suites in an outlying villa, complete with private Jacuzzi, kitchen and grand courtyard making it ideal for families, couples or friends travelling together, as well as special celebrations.

Named by Travel + Leisure as one of the top five lodges in New Zealand and Australia, Matakauri is your ultimate sanctuary after a day spent atop mountains, exploring vast fjords, chasing thrills and simply discovering this unique region.

Matakauri Lodge is a member of Relais & Châteaux and is a sister property to Kauri Cliffs and Cape Kidnappers.

Best of the Best

Few places can claim such a coveted Alpine locale as Matakauri Lodge. Just seven minutes from Queenstown, the lodge sits along Lake Wakatipu with uninterrupted views of the big three: The Remarkables, and Cecil and Walter Peaks. You can soak in the panorama from the infinity swimming pool or the inviting courtyard, as well as any of the 12 stylish suites with private porches or the four-bedroom Owner's Cottage. The spa takes full advantage of local ingredients in its healing treatments, as does Head Chef Jonathan Rogers in preparing his exquisite cuisine — enjoy it with a selection of local wines.

Advisor Tip

The four-bedroom Owner’s Cottage is the crème de la crème of private luxury in Queenstown. Bring your friends and family, yet still have plenty of space for solitude. –Rachel Haile Chicago, Illinois
