Situated above Lake Wanaka, one of New Zealand’s most pristine natural glacial lakes, you will find luxurious seclusion at Whare Kea. With floor-to-ceiling windows and sweeping mountain views, peace, tranquillity and contemplation are just a few of the inevitable feelings when experiencing this stunning lodge.
With 6 exquisite suites comprised of ensuites and walk-in wardrobes, there are no excuses needed for ‘you time,’ as your in-house chef will be happily creating one masterful, melt-in-your-mouth feast after another. Whare Kea, meaning ‘house of the Kea’ in Maori, captures everything Central Otago, as the Kea is the world’s only alpine parrot that makes its home in the mountains surrounding the lodge.
Whare Kea has its own private lake access, sweeping lawn and a hot tub secreted away from the suites making it the perfect wind-down option after a hard day’s exploring.
And then there’s the chalet... Perched high-up in the Buchanan mountain range sits a hideaway so unique, it is helicopter access only. With your own private guide and bubbly chalet host, this 2 bedroom chalet experience really is amazing. Through incredible forethought resulting in sustainable design awards, this Relais Chateaux property is rivalled by none.
