Hotels in Queenstown

Queenstown is one of New Zealand’s most popular tourism destinations. Before Covid, over one point two million visitors a year flew in and out of Queenstown Airport. Queenstown only has a population of 16,000 people, with the entire Queenstown Lakes District having only 47,000. So during peak season, tourists easily outnumber locals. Expect to meet people from all over the globe.

Queenstown is the best ski town in the Southern Hemisphere. Boasting 4 great ski fields and some of the world’s best heli-skiing, it draws skiers and snowboarders from all over the world. Many of the world’s best train here during the Northern Hemisphere summer. Cardrona and The Remarkables offer huge terrain parks with massive jumps, and Treble Cone offers sensational free riding.

Adventure awaits; Queenstown is home to more adventure sports and activities than most people will ever do. Bungy Jumping, Ziplining, Paragliding, Whitewater Rafting, Jet Boating, Kayaking, Mountain Biking, Hunting, Fishing and Hiking to name a few. There are also some sensational golf courses, with Jacks Point making the top 50 on most World Rankings and as high as 6th on some. It’s undoubtedly one of the finest courses in the world. The Hills, Millbrook, Arrowtown, and Queenstown Golf Club are all great, with stunning views and challenging layouts that will test any golfer.

Queenstown’s also the gateway to Milford Sound, with day trips by bus or helicopter; if you can afford it. Alternatively, if you book far enough ahead, you can walk the famous Milford Track. Just be sure to do a cruise on Milford Sound before you come back.

Central Otago is also known for its magnificent wine, so visit a vineyard or two while you’re in town. There are some superb restaurants too, so spoil yourself, you can get back on your diet when you get home!

No visit to Queenstown is complete without a trip up the Gondola to take in those magnificent views. Ride the luge, have a beer or two, and watch the sunset before returning to Queenstown and hitting the many bars and nightclubs before crashing and falling asleep, exhausted, in your 5 star hotel.
