The grand dame of Queenstown – with the grandest views of Lake Wakatipu
Eichardt’s Private Hotel may have roots stretching back to 1866, but its chic interiors and whatever-your-whim service plant it firmly in the 21st century. It’s thanks in part to Virginia Fisher’s creative influence, adding a modern edge to this boutique hotel’s heritage. And with the best spot on the shores of mountain-backed Lake Wakatipu, it’s both sleekly designed and serenely placed.
Inside, the hotel makes the most of the South Island landscape it’s part of. Each suite and apartment frames awe-inspiring lake or mountain views, and balances antique furnishings with contemporary style notes. For peak privacy, choose The Residence, an elegant villa set slightly apart from the main hotel. Or experience ultimate luxury in The Penthouse. With spa-like marble bathrooms, a private pool terrace, personal chef and round-the-clock butler – and the best views in the house – it’s a spectacular space for enjoying the finer things in life.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
If the outlook from Eichardt’s Private Hotel inspires a closer look at this incredible landscape, take a gondola up Bob’s Peak. The concierge can also arrange exclusive experiences including helicopter adventures, dog sledding in winter and balmy West Coast fishing expeditions. But for a truly memorable day out, board the hotel’s private yacht – the Pacific Jemm – or charter it overnight for starlit sojourns. When you return, share stories over drinks at Eichardt’s Bar – a chic cocktail bar and a Queenstown institution.
Enjoy your stay!
