Tucked into a corner of Lake Wakatipu is the luxury lodge of Blanket Bay; full of charm and luxury, and surrounded by snow capped peaks and a pristine lake shore. There is a peacefulness that energizes your soul and takes your breath away. You can fill your days with adventures and activities, anticipating the excitement and beauty of the next moment or the next day. Fine cuisine will feed your body and all your senses, as you absorb the ambience before you. Local vineyards offer delicious local wines to relax you in style.
With Queenstown only 45 minutes away, you have so much in close proximity, yet you feel as though you are in a vast space of your own, communing with nature in all her glory.
There are several room options at Blanket Bay, from luxury lodge rooms and suites to luxury lodge chalet suites and staterooms. Each room type is nonsmoking with air conditioning, iPod docking stations and all the luxury amenities you would expect.
To restore you inner and outer well being, there are numerous options, including a world class spa. You can discover your own adventures in the tours and activities you choose, including mountain, biking, hiking, heli-fishing, heli-skiing, scenic helicopter flights, a Milford Sound tour, jaunts into Queenstown for paragliding, luge, jet boats, bungee jumping and more.
You’ve found the perfect spot. Now all you need to do is book your flight, (on Air New Zealand in premium economy with the new space seats or business class for lie flat beds) and head straight for heaven on earth.
