Pampering in a Stunning Location

Pros: An off-grid experience where you will feel pampered and totally relaxed.
Location: If you want to do more than just sit in your bath and admire the view, there are walks and the Alps to Ocean cycle trail.
If you are looking for a luxury experience as a couple where you can escape from the day to day, visit Lakestone Lodge. From the complementary welcome drink to on demand expresso coffee, the owners and staff make sure they look after you during your stay. The breakfasts are amazing and the evening meal thoroughly recommended. There are no televisions in the room, but Lake Pukaki provided constant entertainment during our stay with different moods and vistas. At night, the darkness and quietness is complete. The Lodge is situated within the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve and provides great opportunities for astronomy, sky gazing and astrophotography when the sky is clear. Stop reading this review and book your stay.
