Take A Load Off At the dreamy Matakauri Lodge Retreat

Matakauri Lodge

Matakauri Lodge is a charming luxury retreat from New Zealand, positioned in a fairy-tale-like setting which allows visitors to believe, even if for a short time, that they are alone on Earth, enjoying its unspoiled beauty while listening to nothing but nature’s sounds.

New Zealand’s South Island is a magical place and if you ever decide to come here, this exclusive retreat should be on your list. Queensland is just a few minutes away, but the Matakauri Lodge is isolated from the busy city life, surrounded by beautiful mountains and the Lake Wakatipu.

Staying in and enjoying your complimentary pre-dinner drink will sound nice, but exploring the stunning scenery would be ten times better.

What about accommodations? Well, there are 11 “lodgings” – comfortable and beautifully furnished suites and villas that feature private terraces and incredible views of the Queenstown lakeside and the aforementioned mountains. The list of activities you can do here is quite impressive… to say the least.

Guests may try out white water rafting, paragliding, bungee jumping, jet boating and heli-skiing, just to name a few. Hiking, horse riding, wineries, trout fishing, scenic flights are also on the list. That’s why I think it’s safe to say that staying at this place will be truly unforgettable.
