Marvellous, magnificent and magical are just some of the words that are used to describe Blanket Bay on New Zealand’s South Island. Set along the shores of Lake Wakatipu, with the white peaks of the Southern Alps in the background, this opulent stone-and-timber lodge sets the stage for a unique and luxurious alpine escape.

Here, you can enjoy countless activities that the Otago region is famous for: fly-fishing, heli-skiing, kayaking and boating, hiking, 4WD tours, vineyard tours, and flights over Milford Sound or Fiordland National Park. Alternatively, indulge in some pampering at the Blanket Bay Spa which features a therapy suite, steam rooms, gym and a Jacuzzi with magnificent lake and mountain views. 

The main lodge building is surrounded by sprawling greens and provides the ideal location for you to sit by the crackling fire and cosy up in its comfy couches. The outdoor terrace, with a colossal outdoor fireplace, makes for a superb spot to sit and watch the sun go down. Regardless of which of the beautiful room types you choose, you’ll enjoy breakfast, pre-dinner cocktails and dinner each evening in the elegant Dining Room. The self-service bar in the games room is also open at any time at no extra charge.

Lodge Rooms & Suites

Warm polished wood and fine fabrics are combined to create an idyllic space for rest and relaxation. Each Lodge Room and Suite boasts sweeping lake views as well as a super king-sized bed, TV, DVD, and Bose iPod docking station. 

The six Lodge Rooms (approx 35sqm) feature an ensuite bathroom with granite topped double vanities, separate shower and a bath tub. Meanwhile, the three Lodge Suites (approx 65sqm) have a large private balcony, a stone fireplace, walk-in closet, and a bathroom with separate steam shower and bath tub.

Chalet Suites & Staterooms

The Chalet Suites, set in two separate buildings adjacent the main lodge, reflect New Zealand’s colonial architecture by utilising schist stone and old steamer wharf timber beams. Each of the four suites (approx 65sqm) boasts a private courtyard, stone fireplace, super king size bed, a walk-in closet, and a bathroom with separate steam shower and bath tub.

The Chalet Suites can be converted into a 130sqm Stateroom by combining a large additional living room with stone fireplace and additional private courtyard.

Owners Residence

Located off its own private driveway, only a short walk to the main lodge, the self-contained Owners Residence is the ideal choice for those seeking true privacy. It offers two bedrooms in the main house and a further two bedrooms in a separate studio. 

Inside, the large stone fireplace serves as a centrepiece of the main lounge. This area and the dining room look out to uninterrupted views of Lake Wakatipu through the lovely picture window. The rustic country kitchen, on the other hand, overlooks the stone courtyard and delightful surrounding gardens. 

Ideal for families and groups, the Owners Residence has two large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms in each. The master bedroom features a large stone fireplace, wooden floors, and majestic lake views towards the snow-capped Humboldt Mountain Range. There are a further two bedrooms, also with ensuite bathrooms, in the separate elevated studio that can be accessed via a walkway through the courtyard. 

NOTE: Blanket Bay welcomes children aged 10 years and over.
