Each of the beautiful suites has a private porch, bedroom with sitting area and open fireplace, a walk-in wardrobe and bathroom. Eight of them are outlying, the three other are housed in the main lodge, which also boasts a spacious lounge, dining and living areas with views of the lake. A magnificent spa with pool, sauna and fitness centre all combine to make this the ideal retreat, just seven minutes from Queenstown.

Discover the hotel

An alpine lakeside retreat, Matakauri Lodge is nestled in one of the world's most serenely beautiful landscapes. Spectacularly situated on Lake Wakatipu and only seven minutes from Queenstown, it is within easy reach of the adventure sports and outdoor activities, to several ski fields, or the more leisurely fine wine and arts scene of Central Otago.
Accommodation in twelve luxurious suites each with private porch, and a free-standing private residence The Owner’s Cottage, all look out the dramatic lake and mountain panorama. Join our lodge team each evening in the main lodge for pre-dinner drinks and canapés, followed by dinner changing nightly and featuring the finest New Zealand produce.

Our commitments

Chef Jonathan Rogers sources the very best seasonal products from local suppliers in his surrounding region.

With daily changing menus, Chef Rogers depends on deliveries of seasonal produce from several local suppliers who practice sustainable agriculture. One of these such suppliers is the a producer named Double Rock and delivers organic fruit and vegetables from across the Central Otago region. Chef Rogers also sources meat locally from key suppliers Cadrona Merino Lamb (lamb) and Fiordland Fairgame (venison). By supporting local initiatives practicing alternative agriculture, the chef is reducing his restaurant's carbon footprint, helping develop organic local agriculture and can give his guests a taste of products from New Zealand.
