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.
