The hotel in detail

Renowned as one of the world’s best hideaways, Blanket Bay Hotel is superbly isolated and the perfect spot for a romantic break. Set against the stunning backdrop of the snow-capped Humboldt Mountains and sitting on the banks of Lake Wakatipu, this delightful lodge, with its impeccable standard of cuisine, is a truly comfortable base from which to explore the Milford Sound region of South Island.

Finished in New Zealand timber and stone, the rooms and suites are divided between the main lodge and separate chalets. Each one is a sanctuary of comfort. Expect polished wood, fine fabrics, elegant rugs, stone fireplaces and panoramic decks or terraces to sit and enjoy in the astounding mountain and lake views.

The best way to see the coastal fiords and Milford Sound is by helicopter. Stand on the mountain tops, touch a glacier and visit the isolated west coast beaches. Return for a relaxing soak in the spa pool overlooking the lake. Have dinner on the outdoor terrace in front of the vast outdoor fireplace and under a clear sky full of stars.
