Blanket Bay, Glenorchy, New Zealand
Blanket Bay brings all the comforts of the 21st century to a region where settlers once built shelters out of stitched blankets, on the remote shores of Lake Wakatipu. Framed by the peaks of the Humbolt Mountains and just 35 scenic minutes drive from Queenstown, Blanket Bay Lodge is a haven of peace and tranquillity in a sublime setting. Each room, either in the main lodge or one of the two chalets, offers panoramic views of mountains, rivers, the lake and sky. Timber, stone and period style furnishings have been artfully melded to create this truly unique lodge, where attention to detail is key and every need is met.
Blanket Bay not only offers the ultimate in luxury accommodation, but also an unsurpassed list of activities and experiences available from the property, from heli-skiing and flight-seeing to horse riding and hiking. This is one of the most exclusive and luxurious lodges in the country, indeed the world.
