Wine tours and heli-skiing top the list of attractions at this stunning lakefront resort.
Sir Ian McKellen is said to have declared Blanket Bay "the most splendid property" in the world. He could have been talking about the lodge or he could have been talking about the setting — both are spectacular. Blanket Bay enjoys a gorgeous location in New Zealand's Southern Alps on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, and the views are a highlight, beginning with the guest rooms and suites. Accommodations in the lodge and chalet embody the spirit of rustic-chic, with notable touches such as beamed ceilings, stone fireplaces and original artwork. The two-bedroom, stone-and-timber owner's residence is ideal for those seeking extra privacy.
The cozy Evening Dining Room is the perfect place to sample wines from the area's Central Otago vineyards, and if you're seeking an exclusive food and wine experience, reserve the Wine Cave for private dining for up to six. Milford Sound crayfish, Hawkes Bay lamb and local cheese are among the menu highlights. The lodge is home to a fitness center and spa, the latter featuring holistic treatments and beautiful lake and mountain views. Out and about, activities include fly-fishing, golf, wine tasting, horseback riding, gallery hopping and some of the best heli-skiing in the world. A boardroom, breakout rooms and unique activities are available for small conferences and team-building retreats. All rates include breakfast, pre-dinner cocktails and dinner.
