Stay

Our Luxury Villa Collection

A stay at Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat is an escape to pure paradise.

Our High Country Estate and Luxury Villa Collection is situated on 66 hectares, nestled between the turquoise blue waters of Lake Pukaki and the majestic Ben Ohau ranges. It is on the doorstep of Aoraki Mount Cook National Park and the Te Wāhipounamu World Heritage Area, a place of unsurpassed beauty and natural wonders.

We are within 2-3 hours’ scenic drive of Wanaka or Queenstown and just 40 minutes from Takapō/Lake Tekapo. Our four on-site helipads offer direct helicopter access to your villa.

From the Ashley Mackenzie Villa, enjoy uninterrupted views up Lake Pukaki to the Southern Alps and Aoraki Mount Cook, New Zealand’s highest and most revered mountain. Ashley Mackenzie Villa also includes private access to the Fantail Spa, including outdoor hot tub, sauna, massage room and exercise facilities.

Moraine Villas overlook the tawny golden landscape of the legendary Mackenzie Basin and the Ben Ohau mountain ranges. These two villas, Villa Matariki and Villa Tautoru, include their own private outdoor spa pools.

All villas offer peaceful privacy and are finished to the highest standard of warm, comfortable luxury. Each villa comprises two bedrooms, with king or twin bed configurations, and can accommodate a maximum of four guests.

A piece of paradise. Absolutely worth a visit. This place has stunning views, luxury accommodation, top service and a private chef. You can spend time relaxing in a hot tub (which is absolutely amazing) under the stars along with peace and quiet. The lake is right in front of you as you look over the grassy lawn high up on a cliff, with Mount Cook in the background. There are plenty of things to do around this geologically rich area: bike trails, hikes, sightseeing, scenic flights and much more. The hosts were incredibly interesting, friendly and accommodating. We will be back for sure.
