Romantic Things To Do in Queenstown

Romantic Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar Queenstown

Everyone knows Queenstown is famous as a couples getaway. It’s New Zealand’s most sought after honeymoon location and very popular for a dirty weekend as well. So what are all those loved up couples doing in Queenstown?

Onsen Hot Pools

This is the must do couples activity in Queenstown. You’ll need to book it months in advance, so don’t just rock up thinking you’ll have a quick spa. But an hour here is magical. It’s such a beautiful location and totally private. You can order drinks to take in with you. And best of all it’s great in any weather.

Dinner at Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar

Romantic Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar Queenstown

Located at the top of the Skyline Gondola Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar is one of the most romantic spots in Queenstown. Come for dinner and make sure your there for sunset, so you can see the view by day and by night. After your romantic dinner and few drinks get a little frisky in the Gondola on the way back down. It’s a great evening, and something you’ll remember forever.

Cruise Lake Wakatipu on TSS Earnslaw

Lake Wakatipu Queenstown

Couples love this activity. Take a cruise on Lake Wakatipu and have a bbq lunch a few drinks and play a little Titanic at the front of the boat. The views are stunning in every direction, it’s so romantic you’ll probably have to race back to your hotel for a quickie the second the boat docks.

Wine Tasting

Romantic Wine Tasting in Queenstown

Depending on exactly how much wine you intend to ‘taste’ you can either drive your self (not recommended) or book a tour. Booking a tour is way better as then you can both enjoy the afrodesiac effect of the wine.

Shotover Jet

Shotover Jet

Get the blood pumping and perhaps even get a little wet Jet Boating on the Shotover Jet. This is an adrenaline ride you can do together, and it’s actually a real bonding experience. Cheating death together brings a couple together. More arousing than romantic, but still perfect for couples.

Book a Room With a View

Queenstown has some magnificently romantic hotels. This stunning view is from Azur Lodge which is one of the sexiest places to stay in Queenstown. With a suite like that there’s plenty of activities you can do without even leaving the room.

Make Love by the Fire

The Spire Hotel romantic room with fireplace

if you are not lucky enough to have a fireplace in your bedroom at home then book a hotel room with a fireplace in Queenstown. There’s nothing more romantic than turning out all the lights and doing it by firelight. It’s flattering as well the warm glow makes anyone look hot. The room pictured is at the sensational Spire Hotel in the heart of town. It’s one of the most romantic hotels in Queenstown.

Ultimate Helicopter Picnic Date

Helicopter picnic

This is the ultimate date, you’ll both remember it forever. It’s a helicopter tour with gourmet lunch. Starting in Queenstown it takes 3 and 1/2 hours. It’s very VERY expensive, but you can’t put a price on love. You’ll see the West Coast, all of Milford Sound, Sutherland Falls, Lake Quinn, and land on a Glacier, then stop for a gourmet picnic lunch with wine in a scenic mountain location.

Moke Lake

Romantic Moke Lake

Escape the hustle and bustle of Queenstown with romantic walk around Moke Lake. It’s a short drive from Queenstown (you’ll need a car) it’s a great spot for a picnic or either sunrise or sunset.

Go Star Gazing

Stargazing in Queenstown

The Southern Sky is amazing. There’s very little light pollution and the Southern Hemisphere has way more stars than the Northern. he best experience is 3 hours drive away in Mt Aspiring but Skyline Gondola actually has Star Gazing tours at short walk from the top of the Gondola which are awesome for a date night. Snuggle together to keep warm and enjoy the incredible night sky. It’s so romantic.

Couples Massage

Book a couples massage. This one is at Nugget Point Spa but there are actually plenty of amazing spa hotels in Queenstown for you and your partner to enjoy. There’s nothing more sensual and relaxing than a good massage, you’ll be in the mood for some lovin the second you get back to your room.

Amisfield Bistro

Amisfield Bistro Queenstown

Queenstown has many romantic fine dining restaurants, but none better than the magnificent Amisfield Bistro. Located at the Amisfield Winery in Lake Hayes this is as good as gets in Queenstown. Trust the Chef with a 7 course degustation lunch or dinner. Dining at Amisfield is not just a meal , it’s an experience you’ll remember for years.

Head Out For Cocktails

Cocktails at The Spire Hotel

My favourite place for cocktails in Queenstown is the bar at The Spire Hotel it’s one of the most romantic in Queenstown. But the Eichardt’s bar makes a wicked cocktail too. For something a little different head to Arrowtowns famous Blue Door Bar. Late night you can’t beat The Bunker in central Queenstown.

Enjoy a Bath With a View

Azur Lodge Queenstown Luxury Hotel with romantic bath

You don’t have to head out for a drink. Infact on a couples getaway you really should find a hotel that has a bath with a view, order a bottle or two of your favourite tipple and play a little splash and tickle. No need to go anywhere. This magnificent bath is at Azur Lodge.
