For your own stylish open plan villa with lake views, look no further than Azur Lodge. Tucked away in private gardens on the edge of Sunshine Bay overlooking the stunning clear turquoise waters of Lake Wakatipu, this luxurious retreat sits just a 5 minute drive from downtown Queenstown and 20 minutes from the airport.
Queenstown hosts some of New Zealand’s most stunning golf courses, and you can practise your swing to the backdrop of the Remarkable Mountain Range with help from the Azur Lodge concierge.
With just 9 identical suites, the service here is personal and guests can enjoy masses of space and privacy. Each cosy villa features a spacious sundeck with lake and mountain views, a working gas fireplace, large floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, and a super king bed with 300 thread count Egyptian cotton linens. The carefully thought-out open plan living areas also come with free WiFi, flat screen TVs with Sky, iPod docking stations, a complimentary mini bar and tea and coffee making facilities as well as luxury bathrooms with under floor heating, luxury bathroom products and an aromatherapy oil burner.
Take on the extreme spots offered in and around Queenstown, the adventure capital of the world, or try more leisurely pursuits around Azure Lodge. The friendly staff can arrange fly fishing, hiking trips, golf, skiing and wine tasting experiences, as well as trips to Milford Sound.
Breakfast and daily treats are created in the kitchen of the Main Lodge at Azur, but for lunch and dinner there is no formal dining room, giving guests the option of heading into town on the complimentary shuttle bus or making the most of the ‘In Villa Dining’ experience offered by the lodge. For this, guests can choose from a selection of menus from local restaurants, and order meals which the staff will then collect and deliver piping hot on china plates directly.
