Blanket Bay sits at the north end of Lake Wakatipu in Glenorchy, Otago, New Zeeland. It’s just a 45 minute drive from the now world famous resort town of Queenstown. This beautiful place was discovered in the 1860s, during the gold rush and there are still 20 scheelite mines in the Rees and Wyuna Valley. Today the place remains a stunning retreat for those who come looking for peace and solitude outside the quotidian life. Blanket Bay offers accommodation in five intimate lodge rooms, three lodge suites and four chalets, all filled with sumptuous furnishings and elegant rugs. Natural materials were used for design, echoing the lodge’s integration with the environment. All rooms within the lodge marvel at magnificent lake and mountain views.
This corner of New Zeeland provides the rare opportunity of combining sheer comfort with a vast array of aventures: hiking, horse riding, fishing and heli-fishing, helicopter flights and many more. “The Lodge lies on the edge of one of the greatest alpine wilderness regions in the Southern Hemisphere – a brief helicopter ride away from the stunning snow-capped Mt Earnslaw Glacier, the beautiful quiet trout-filled rivers of The Greenstone Valley and the dense pre-historic rainforests of World Heritage Fiordland National Park”.
