Excellence in every way
Reviewed 1 month ago

This lodge offers an amazing luxury stay. Service started upon entry with welcome drink, grounds tour and then to our suite.Serene surroundings are landscaped so that you enjoy privacy and stunning lake views. Our deluxe suite had a patio with seating. I enjoyed the night sky from the chaise lounge. Beds were super comfortable. Huge shower area. Soaking tub in front of a window with lake views. Fireplace. I had a massage by an experienced well trained therapist. The dining areas have lake views to enjoy the three michelin star quality dining experience. An incredible experience.

Simply the best

My wife and I stayed at Matakauri Lodge as part of our honeymoon and it quickly became our favorite destination on the south island (beating out other Relais and Chateaux properties). The people were fantastic (other guests and staff included, Benedict and Ogie were awesome), the accommodations were tastefully decorated with fantastic views, and the level of privacy afforded to each unit matches the expectations of staying at a Robertson Lodge.

What a beautiful place to stay for a special occasion. Great food, great people and even greater views.met at the door, cases taken to your room while you enjoy refreshments of bubbles, tea or coffee. Shown around the lodge and told whatever you need just ask. Delightful, not enough words to describe the luxury that awaits you.

Perfection in every way!!

I couldn’t even begin to rate this place. We spent 2 weeks in NZ and not only was it the best spot of the trip it was the best place I’ve ever stayed.

5/5 service doesn’t do it justice since it means nowhere else can get a perfect score. It starts from the moment you arrive, You don’t check in they just offer you a drink and go through your itinerary. When we were done our bags were in the room, car was parked (they cleaned it btw!!). Our room (which was upgraded) was spacious, private, incredible view and has every indulgence imaginable. Dinner was Michelin quality. They setup a private dinner in the library overlooking the mountains.

I find it hard to review since it was actually perfect. You can see my other reviews which I try to be honest and will give feedback....even at great 5 star properties. I have nothing. It is pricey....but you get what you pay for. You won’t find a better place on the South Island....period.

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.
