Matakauri Lodge Hotel Review

: Three’s a charm with the opening of Matakauri Lodge, sister property of Kauri Cliffs and The Farm at Cape Kidnappers. With surrounding views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkable, Cecil and Walter Peak mountain ranges, every aspect of this retreat takes advantage of its natural setting. Even the business center features mountain views. Contemporary New Zealand design sets the tone in 11 guest suites, three in the main lodge and eight in outlying cottages, each with its own porch and open fireplace. Treatments in the spa incorporate outlying vistas to create a soothing experience, and guests can also relax in the outdoor heated infinity pool. Changing daily to showcase local, seasonal produce, the lodge menu is a particular treat, since room rates include full breakfast and gourmet dinner, as well as pre-dinner drinks with hors d’oeuvres.
