Matakauri Lodge Overview

Matakauri Lodge is located on the edge of Lake Wakatipu, and the views from every room are stunning. There’s no garden view rooms here, everything faces the lake and mountains. Each suite has a private terrace, a stunning bathroom and pretty much every comfort imaginable. Oh and they have a heated infinity pool, a hot tub, and offer all the spa treatments you’ve come to expect.

It’s a 7 minute drive to the centre of Queenstown, less in a helicopter (they obviously have a helipad). If you can afford it opt for the owner cottage, it sleeps 8 (4 bedrooms & 4 Bathrooms) so perfect for families. If you’re on a more modest budget and book far enough ahead the Lodge Room is the most affordable way to stay at Matakauri – there’s only one and it’s very popular. Otherwise they have plenty of larger suites. All of which offer the height of luxury.


Matakauri Lodge currently offer breakfast daily, also pre dinner drinks and snacks, and complimentary transport to and from Queenstown for dinner. After 15 December 2021 they’ll be back to full service with accommodation inclusive of gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.


The Spa at Matakauri offers a range of signature treatments, some of which involve mud or hot stones. But don’t worry you can just get a great massage too. They also offer facials there’s even one for the blokes.


You’d be pretty nit picky to find anything wrong with Matakauri. At this level accommodation doesn’t get any better it’s just different. Matakauri is one of those places.
