Perfect sanctuary surrounded by the panoramic view of mountains and Lake Wakatipu. A must place to stay when traveling in Queenstown with family or romantic escape with your partner. Bookings are essential.

The rooms have window walls with views of the lake. The view changes frequently with the weather. We saw several rainbows in an hour. The bedroom is a few stairs above the massive living room area and the bathroom is large, also with views. The flowers on the grounds are colorful. The service and diningvwere amazing. If you are coming to this part of New Zealand, near Christchurch, I highly recommend this luxurious art-filled lodge.

The week I spent at Matakauri Lodge with my husband and 3 other couples was perfect in every way. It is hard to put my emotions of gratitude, profound amazement and unexpected delight into words. The staff went above and beyond the entire time, and by the end of our stay, we really felt like we had a friendly bond. I will never forget our room, the delux suite! I loved how the room invited you to sit and stay a while. It was perfect for having a lazy morning and enjoying an extra cup of coffee. The bathroom and the view from the bathroom were gorgeous. It was the most exquisite room and bathroom I've ever seen! The pool was nice for relaxing, our meals at the Lodge were wonderful, the hiking path down to the lake was cool, and there isn't one thing that could have been any better. What an incredible vacation experience!

We spent one night at this amazing Lodge in Queenstown for my husband's 60th birthday. The attention to detail, the attentive staff and the superb food, where just amazing. We loved our stay and will definitely return. Thank you for making our stay so very memorable.

Amazing with a capital A!

True 5 star venue backed by even better service! The team looked after my wife and I and our sometimes difficult 2yro son so well, it exceeded the service we have had at many place at price point >$2k per night.

Food every night was amazing, 5 course meals, not an issue with my GF, everything you can imagine was catered for and supplied.

I love French wine, noticing not a lot on the menu one night (NZ wine dominant) the Somm went out the next day and found me a bottle for the night - service!

The location perfect, picture perfect. The food great. Rooms cosy and impeccably presented. Service - beyond question. Special note to Lawrence the Somm and manager of all things service! Also, Benedict, went out of his way to buy our son and amazing good bye gift.

Well done Matakauri - we look forward to our return!
