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-edge 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.
