Rosewood Matakauri

The Rosewood Matakauri Hotel is situated in Queenstown, New Zealand. It offers an exceptional blend of modern elegance and natural beauty. From the moment you arrive, you will be captivated by the views of Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains. This provides a pleasant backdrop to your stay. Read on to discover what makes this hotel a true oasis of tranquility.


Matakauri Lodge has just three suites in its main Lodge, nestled into the forest. This is the smallest hotel in the world. The location of the hotel is excellent, too. Besides, New Zealand is a trendy destination. The landscapes are among the most beautiful and unspoiled in the entire world.

You also feel very far away from the modern world at the lake's edge. One artifact that shows civilization has reached this far is This Lodge. It boasts lavish interiors as the most exclusive city hotel. As expected, service at this small Lodge is also of the highest standard. And though the island of New Zealand is not known for its native cuisine, the Swiss chef at the Lodge is one of the most talented in the world.

All this is amazing, but the surrounding natural beauty takes precedence. The New Zealand Lodge's claim to have the best view in the country is no mean feat. When looking through the full-length glass windows at Cecil's Peak and the surrounding lake, you will see this. The hotel also offers a variety of leisure activities. These range from nature hikes to adrenaline-filled helicopter rides.

Those who prefer to relax can also enjoy the Spa. It is perfect for couples on a romantic retreat or honeymoon. However, established families will want to know that the hotel charges an extra fee for children younger than 12.


Rosewood Matakauri is an alpine lakeside retreat surrounded by the region's prominent three peaks. That's the Remarkables, Cecil, and Walter Peaks. The Lodge is in a stunning location along the shores of Lake Wakatipu. It also offers breathtaking views of Cecil and Walter Peak from any angle. Besides, it is just a 7-minute drive away from Queenstown. The location is Ferrycroft Row, 569 Glenorchy Road, Queenstown, New Zealand.


Rosewood Matakauri Lodge has many facilities to ensure a relaxing and enjoyable stay. In the lounge area of the boutique New Zealand lodge, you will find various welcoming, comfortable places for relaxation. These include stylish lounges that feature open fires and their library and courtyard.

The Lodge also offers a comfortable beachfront stay at Closeburn. Besides, the pool is a great way to cool off. But if you want a little pampering, the spa has massages and other treatments. THE DINING ROOM also offers local cuisine. It is open for breakfast, dinner, and lunch. There is also a bar/lounge, a fitness center, and a spa hub.


Matakauri Lodge has 11 guest rooms to choose from. You can choose from eight suites in the outlying areas, two at the Lodge, or one room. Moreover, the suites have a private porch with a fireplace and sitting area. There are also oversized baths and twin vanities. These suites overlook Lake Wakatipu with a mountain backdrop and native forests.

There is also a four-bedroom residence with a spacious living room, dining area, and open fireplace. Every suite also comes with wireless high-speed Internet access. Plus, there is a fully stocked mini-bar and air conditioning controlled from the hotel room. It also has an LCD flat-screen TV, a DV player, and a secure safe.

Virginia Fisher is a New Zealand interior designer. He has designed the Lodge's new design. The Lodge and Suites, initially constructed in 2000 in a New Zealand contemporary design, reopened in August 2010.


Matakauri Lodge proudly displays the best local wine and produce in luxury. Dale Gartland is the hotel's executive chef. He oversees modern European food that includes local fresh produce. The daily changing menu is a great way to relax after an adventurous day.

The staff is committed to ensuring that you have the best possible stay. Take advantage of the private dining rooms.
