Breakfast, afternoon tea and pre-dinner drinks and canapes are lovingly prepared in the lodge's open kitchen using fresh, flavoursome, locally-sourced ingredients. Choose when and where to eat, whether in the main lodge or in the comfort of your own villa, there are no set times for service so you are free to enjoy a lazy, late breakfast, or an early afternoon tea, just let the staff know what suits your plans for the day. Queenstown has plenty of fantastic restaurants to choose from for lunch and dinner, and the lodge provides a complimentary shuttle service downtown, ensuring it's easy to get there and back, but if you prefer to spend the night in your 'home from home' villa in-room dining can be arranged, choosing from local restaurants' menus with food plated up and delivered to you. Sitting back, relaxing, and taking in the mesmerising views over a candlelit in-villa dinner is sure to be a highlight of any stay here.
Widely known as the adventure capital of the world, Queenstown's reputation for adrenaline activities is well deserved, with New Zealand's highest bungy jump, thrilling sky diving over amazing scenery, white water rafting sure to get your pulse racing, and ziplining high above the forest just a few of the exciting activities you can choose from. Add to this a plethora of leisure and sports activities in the local area including hiking, biking, winter sports, golf and fishing as well as memorable experiences such as scenic flights, visits to wineries, soaking in hot pools, and magical stargazing excursions, and you're sure to have the adventure of a lifetime! The Azur staff are always happy to help organise any activities and interests you have in mind.
Lakes & Mountains
Remarkable lakeside views offer the most magical of backdrops for your stay in Queenstown. Azur Lodge's villas boast dazzling vistas of bright blue waters, lush greenery, and glistening snow-capped mountains, inescapable panoramas visible through floor-to-ceiling windows, from al fresco sun decks, and even from luxurious, deep soaking bath tubs. Keep your eyes peeled for the local historical steamboat as it cruises past on the lake and bring your binoculars to spot a variety of wildlife and birdlife.
