This romantic paradise overlooking the shores of Lake Wakatipu is a stone's throw from hip Queenstown, but with only 11 luxurious suites, it's all about grown-up glamour.
Floor-to-ceiling bay windows capture the breathtaking views and the food is gastro-tastic - fresh New Zealand lamb and locally caught fish, served with renowned regional wines.
Outdoors, the emphasis is on year-round adventure. Turn your hand to horse-riding, trout fishing or hiking or, in the winter months, heli-skiing: the coolest way to experience New Zealand's slopes. Just make sure you head to the sleek spa for a post-adventure chill-out.
WOW FACTOR: The super-stylish and secluded deluxe suites come with baths made for two from which to enjoy the jaw-dropping views.
