One of New Zealand's premier luxury lodges, Blanket Bay is a world-class property set on the shores of Lake Wakatipu between Queenstown and Mount Aspiring National Park
Arguably the best luxury lodge accommodation near Queenstown, the Blanket Bay Lodge is just 45 minutes away. Close by the meeting point of Lake Wakatipu and Dart River, Blanket Bay is surrounded by the snow-capped peaks of the Southern Alps. Voted one of the World's Best Lodges, it features striking architecture, luxury furnishings and five-star facilities. Accommodation options include rooms and suites in the main lodge, private chalets and one exclusive villa featuring four bedrooms. The awe-inspiring setting of Blanket Bay Lodge invites adventure. Guests are able to hike the Routeburn Track, visit Milford Sound and Mt Aspiring National Park, and ski some of NZ's best ski-fields all within a short drive of the lodge. Helicopter experiences depart from the lodge's helipad for those keen to venture further afield. One for the travel bucket-list.
