Sitting pretty on the waters of Lake Pukaki underneath the otherworldly Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve and surrounded by the majestic Ben Ohau Range, Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat, High Country Estate & Luxury Villa Collection feels completely away from it all.
Offering one of the most arresting views over Aoraki Mount Cook in all of New Zealand, this serene retreat is designed for serious unwinding with just three self-contained private villas sprawled across the alpine estate and a mere 12 guests at any one time. Get cosy in a luxury villa with an open fireplace, melt away under the stars in your private lakeside hot tub and discover unparalleled landscapes at your doorstep — lavender fields are within strolling distance, Tasman Glacier and Lake Tekapo are a 30-minute jaunt away, and you can reach Queenstown in less than three hours.
- Craft gourmet breakfasts with daily provisions supplied in your private villa’s kitchen
- Nightly three-course dining experience with garden-to-plate fare served in your villa or the main lodge
- Complimentary use of the onsite facilities, including mountain bikes, a tennis court and croquet
