Property Highlights:+
Adventure

There are several adventurous activities available for you to embark on at Blanket Bay. Whether you fancy a leisurely stroll along the lakefront or a jet-boat ride on the Dart River. Venture into the heart of the New Zealand wilderness, through the Alpine corridor of Mount Aspiring National Park, discovering cascading waterfalls and incredible glaciers whilst on board the exhilarating jet-boat. Swap the V8 engine of the jet-boat for the calm and tranquillity of songbirds as you canoe on the clear waters of the river, past tumbling waterfalls, glaciers, rocky peaks and dense forests, for an adventure perfect for all the family.

Lakes & Mountains

Blanket Bay is located at the north end of Lake Wakatipu, and is surrounded by some of New Zealand's most breathtaking scenery. Visitors come to Blanket Bay for the peace and tranquilly this extraordinary setting brings, the lodge lying on the edge of one of the finest Alpine wilderness regions in the Southern Hemisphere, including the Mount Aspiring National Park. Explore the region by helicopter to get a real perspective of the wilderness as you discover stunning Milford Sound and Mount Earnslaw Glacier, the pristine trout-filled rivers of Greenstone Valley and luscious, pre-historic, rainforest of Fiordland National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Romance

Situated near New Zealand's Mount Aspiring National Park and a stone's throw away from Queenstown, Blanket Bay presents the perfect, all-seasons, Alpine romantic retreat. View the beautiful scenery from your luxurious room and indulge in the amazing facilities that Blanket Bay has to offer. If that's not enough, why not experience amazing adventures such as trekking, skiing and horse-riding, to name a few. In the evening, enjoy the elegance of the dining room or, on warmer evenings, dine under the southern sky at The Terrace as the fire crackles behind you and you taste incredible cuisine and drink exquisite wine.

Hotel Experiences

Discover New Zealand's fantastic arts scene and impressive wineries on Blanket Bay's 'Wine and Arts Trail'. Delve into New Zealand's artistic brilliance and meet the artists themselves, then explore the Southern Lakes region, which produces significant 'New World' wines, including Pinot Noir, renowned amongst the best in the world. Visit award-winning local wineries, including Amisfield Winery & Bistro and Gibbston Valley winery, where you can relax and enjoy a spot of lunch amongst beautiful scenery.

Spa & Wellness

Spoil yourself with a well-deserved visit to Blanket Bay spa for total relaxation and a re-invigorating treatment that will leave you feeling re-energised and ready to explore New Zealand's beautiful surroundings. Utilise the incredible natural ingredients on offer, including New Zealand Active Manuka Honey. World-renowned for its powerful natural healing properties, the honey encourages skin regeneration, leaving it replenished and rejuvenated. Perhaps burn off some calories with a trip to the Blanket Bay's gym - which offers a private space equipped with a Vectra Multi station and Life Fitness Cardio Equipment - then, finish off a trip to the steam room or Jacuzzi.

Golf

Jack's Point Golf Course is situated amongst truly amazing scenery, with a backdrop of the majestic Remarkables mountain range and an impressive panoramic view of Lake Wakatipu. The challenging 18-hole, par 72, championship course offers an unforgettable golfing experience. Jack's Point Golf Course has been designed to benefit from the natural terrain - raw, dramatic and wild. The preservation of the wetlands, matagouri and native bush enables each hole to be aligned to the astonishing backdrop.
