“Blanket Bay is a perfect base from which to explore breathtakingly beautiful scenery at your own pace.”
Maître de Maison
- Tom Butler
On the shores of Lake Wakatipu, forty-five minutes from Queenstown, Blanket Bay offers dramatic views of the Humboldt Mountains and their reflections below. Wild, rugged and dense with foliage, the landscape finds its natural progression in the property’s stone and timber buildings.
With their large windows that give onto the lake and grand fireplaces, the rooms, chalets and villas are elegant cocoons offering the ultimate respite after one of the many excursions on offer. From helicopter tours over the Fiords of Milford Sound to Mt Aspiring National Park hikes, jet boating in the river or fly fishing, the Blanket Bay team is always on hand to help you discover this breathtaking wilderness. And if it is serenity you seek, sit back and relax in the spa or in one of the armchairs in the bar, which offers a wide selection of premium New Zealand wines.
