Overlooking Lake Wakatipu on New Zealand’s South Island

Luxury Hotel in Queenstown

  • Secluded luxury lodge made with New Zealand stone and timber
  • All rooms have a balcony or private terrace with spectacular views of the Southern Alps and Lake Wakatipu
  • Scenic helicopter flights, horse riding and trips down the Dart River by boat or kayak

Blanket Bay

With the Humboldt Mountains behind, their snow-dusted peaks reflected in Lake Wakatipu in front, Blanket Bay boutique hotel is wrapped up in superb isolation. Yet this captivating hideaway is a short drive from the adrenalin hub of Queenstown – and well placed for exploring the Southern Lakes and Fjordland.

Blanket Bay’s majestic Alpine setting and rustic lodge styling has all the ingredients of a romantic retreat. Take your pick from naturally inspired rooms and suites or the exclusive owner’s house. Warm colours and chic but homey furnishings create a snug contrast to the wild surroundings.  Seek out cosy corners or a seat by a stone fireplace, or absorb the views from the panoramic deck. With a heated outdoor lap pool and luxury spa with lake-view hot tubs, take your time to find your favourite lookout point.

When you’re ready to explore, you’ll find that Blanket Bay Hotel also has a wild side. Plan a private heli-picnic to a remote fjord or mountaintop. Touch the icy walls of ancient glaciers or leave footsteps on a deserted beach. Then welcome nightfall back at your luxury getaway, with dinner beside a vast outdoor fireplace and under a sky full of stars.
