Eichardt's Private Hotel, Queenstown
Situated in the heart of Queenstown on the lakefront, Eichardt's is an impeccably restored heritage building. The hotel's opulent interior is complete with open fires, antique furniture and stunning views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain range. Guests can enjoy the nearby restaurants and bars in the evenings and during the day you're just a stone's throw from hikes, golfing on internationally renowned golf courses and jet boating.
Minaret Station, Wanaka
Minaret Station is a 65,000 acre private high country property with 25km lake frontage and adjoining Mt Aspiring National Park. It is also a working high country farm taking full advantage of the natural livestock benefits that stem from its isolated wilderness location. The property is isolated by having no road access. Surrounded by two large rivers, Lake Wanaka as well as Mount Aspiring National Park to the west, it creates the perfect frame for a true wilderness playground.
There are 4 tents available in double share configuration. The tent platforms are fanned out in front at 35m spacing for privacy, linked to each other and the main building by a raised boardwalk. All meals will be served in the main lodge building. The tents are built on hardwood platforms and joined at their rear to their ensuite bathrooms.
Huka Lodge, Taupo
It's been consistently voted as one of the best lodges in Australasia and this is where the Queen of England likes to rest her head when she's in the country. Huka Lodge is one of the longest standing luxury lodges in New Zealand and it shows. Their level of service and attention to detail is immaculate, and the lodge's position alongside the emerald green Waikato River is as peaceful as it is beautiful.
