Tucked away up the northern end of Lake Wakatipu surrounded by some of New Zealand’s most awe-inspiring vistas, Blanket Bay has consistently ranked as one of the world's most sought after experiences.
Built in the grand style of luxurious alpine lodges with native beech forest, glacier-fed lakes and pristine high-country farmland on its doorstep, since opening in 1999 this luxury lodge really does add meaning to the nearby settlement of ‘Paradise,’ literally a few kilometres down the road.
With the main lodge housing 3 magnificent suites and 5 intimate lodge rooms, each room is individually appointed with the very finest on offer and affords stunning lake and mountain views.
The 2 rustic chalets, again with sensational lake views, offer 4 luxurious suites and lodge facilities include an intimate den, game room, gym, Jacuzzi, steam rooms, a massage suite and a heated outdoor lap pool.
Only a 40 minute drive into Queenstown makes accessibility easy however once in place, you may not want to move. Cuisine, wines and activities on hand will make this southern New Zealand experience one for the books.
