Matakauri Alpine Lodge just outside Queenstown offers a rustic yet luxurious stay, with spectacular scenery and a huge variety of outdoor activities.

Located on the banks of Lake Wakatipu, this luxury lodge includes four suites and six villas all with a view of the lake and the Cecil and Walter Peak mountain ranges. Each villa has its own private terrace and living area with an open fireplace.

The lodge also offers accommodation for families or large groups of friends travelling together, in the 'Owner's Cottage' - a luxurious four bedroom private retreat, complete with BBQ terrace, hot tub and spectacular mountain and lake views from the private balconies.

The restaurant serves New Zealand cuisine, using local seasonal produce, and guests can choose from a selection of dining spaces around the lodge for a private meal.

The spa offers a range of holistic treatments and therapies and includes a gym, heated pool, sauna and jacuzzi. The centre of Queenstown is only seven miles away, offering a huge variety of outdoor activities for guests. For the more adventurous; white-water rafting, heli-skiing, paragliding and bungee jumping are but a few. Or hiking, fishing and winery visits if you prefer to take things slow.
