Perfect vibe for unpretentious luxury stay

A short driving distance from QT, this place is a world apart. Understated luxury with excellent food and friendly service to match. I was jet-lagged and wanted to watch Wimbledon at 3am - the TV in the room didn’t carry the channel - so they set me up in the cosy library, drinks, cookies and all. No fuss. Best breakfast view of the lake you will ever have.

Unforgettable memories at The Matakauri Lodge

To our friends at The Matakauri Lodge,

A very big thanks to the staff at The Matakauri Lodge for truly making our holiday a very memorable one. From our welcome arrival to our daily excursions and evening dinners in the library, your personal attention to every detail was impeccable and you made us feel at home, as if we had the whole property to ourselves. We have stayed at numerous 5-star plus boutique properties in the past but the level of service and professionalism we experienced at your property is beyond words. We will always remember Benedict, Ogie, Arsen, Greg, Robin, Ksena, Cameron, Aimee and Mayo. Every interaction with you was unique and very special to us! You did a wonderful job accommodating our little ones. Very special thanks to Arsen for his exceptional service and really going above and beyond in catering to our meal preferences and providing awesome local recommendations. We will miss our chats with you. ????

We sincerely look forward to returning soon and until then staying in touch!

Outstanding views service and food

Just a perfect place. Staff could not have been more helpful, views more gorgeous or food more delicious. A great location to celebrate an anniversary or anything else.
Arsen, Rosie, Kathi, Cameron and in fact all the staff were a delight.
