Luxury Holidays At Matakauri Lodge

Matakauri Lodge is the perfect place to clear the mind and revive the senses whilst cocooning yourself in luxury. Just minutes from the heart of Queenstown, set on the banks of Lake Wakatipu, with views of the 'Big Three' (Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Walter Peak), the lodge has been designed to maximise on its gorgeous surroundings. Beds and baths have been cleverly positioned in each of the suites to make the most of the vistas, as do the viewing platforms located around the lodge. Burnt oranges and russets set against a backdrop of white walls and touches of stone create serenely stylish interiors complemented by works of art by well-known New Zealand photographers and painters dotted throughout the property. Fine foods, world-class wines and a real sense of wilderness make Matakauri Lodge the ideal alpine retreat.

Property Highlights:expand_more

Matakauri Lodge offers a super range of exciting and thrilling adventures for adrenaline junkies. Try Canyoning, just minutes from the lodge, plunging into pools, cascading down chutes, abseiling down waterfalls and swimming narrow passageways as you embark on this unique aquatic adventure. If river rafting has your name written all over it, why not white-water raft on the Shotover or Kawarau rivers, through tunnels and Lord of the Rings locations while learning the rivers' gold mining history, or sway on the world's highest swing across a 70-metre-long suspension bridge as you freefall, creating an immense adrenaline rush.


Families of all sizes and ages are guaranteed endless fun at Matakauri Lodge. The lodge provides excellent little luxuries and amenities to make your stay as pleasant as possible, including babysitters, toys, games and much more. There is also an abundance of exciting family activities to try out, including the Funyak Safari, a full-day adventure taking you on a jet-boat ride to Mount Aspiring National Park, before funyaking downstream. Otherwise, gently cruise across Lake Wakatipu to the Walter Peak Station and enjoy a farm tour on the Earnslaw Cruises & Farm Tours. With many other activities to try, Matakauri Lodge will certainly create unforgettable memories.

Spa & Wellness

Matakauri's spa offers an holistic and tailor-made menu utilising New Zealand’s own Evolu Botanical skincare products; choose from temptingly named therapies, such as the Cocoon Bliss, Glacial Facial and the Ponamu Pebble Pedicure.

In Addition

Queenstown has very distinct seasons and is therefore stunning any time of the year, whether you seek snow, sun or springtime scents, Queenstown’s is undeniably beautiful and the crystal-clear air is intoxicatingly rich & these may seem like simple attributes, but they never fail to impress.
