Set on the shore of New Zealand’s Lake Wakatipu, Blanket Bay offers secluded alpine lodge-style accommodations surrounded by the majestic Southern Alps.
Insider Tip

The private helipad on the front lawn offers a unique and spectacular start to any helicopter excursion, from fishing to skiing.

Where You’re Staying

Elegantly appointed rooms and suites feature lodge décor with artwork inspired by the local flora and fauna. Each accommodation includes either a balcony or terrace with stunning mountain and lake vistas. Select suites feature New Zealand colonial-style architecture with schist stone, timber beams, and fireplaces.

Where to Dine

The Evening Dining Room offers a five-course menu that changes nightly and features local specialties. Dine in the main dining room, in the secluded Wine Cave, or by the fire on the patio during the warmer months for views of the lake. Savor a pre-dinner cocktail in the Great Room or The Den.

Where to Relax

During the summer months, enjoy the heated outdoor lap pool and spectacular lake views. Blanket Bay Spa offers a steam room, whirlpool, and menu of treatments such as the Embraced by Honey facial featuring Manuka honey, or the Zen of Relaxation, featuring a footcare and aromatherapy scalp massage.

Horseback ride in the high country. Play golf at Jacks Point Golf Course, an 18-hole, par-72 championship course. Stroll around Blanket Bay, or go for a multiday hike in Fiordland National Park. Tour the Wine and Arts Trail, meeting local artists in their studios.
