Tried, True and Something New
This winter Matakauri Lodge has partnered with Mahu Whenua Lodge to deliver seven special nights in two unforgettable locations.
With four nights at the acclaimed “tried and true” Matakauri Lodge and three nights experiencing “something new" at the recently unveiled Mahu Whenua Lodge, the Tried, True and Something New Package is truly the South Island at its best.
TRIED AND TRUE…
Just seven minutes from bustling Queenstown, Matakauri Lodge is an established favourite. Dramatically positioned on the edge of Lake Wakatipu, this cosy lakeside retreat offers mesmerising panoramic views of the lake and the big three: The Remarkables, and Cecil and Walter Peaks.
Matakauri’s proximity to Queenstown makes it an ideal escape to experience Queenstown’s vibrant town centre, Arrowtown’s vivid autumn colours or the region’s extended ski season. Yet with its secluded location, Matakauri feels a world away from the adventure capital’s hustle and bustle. Combining its unrivalled position with classic style, chic decor, a cellar of impressive wines, and Chef Jonathan Rogers’ modern New Zealand cuisine, Matakauri’s dining experience is truly special.
Serenely positioned in what has been somewhat of a local secret, Mahu Whenua Lodge is a new and exciting luxury alpine lodge experience. Set amidst 136,000 acres of the largest private conservation project in New Zealand’s history, yet just 25 minutes from Wanaka, this high country lodge offers a large and impressive homestead with four private luxurious suites.
Communal areas boast two open fireplaces, a large open living area with expansive views and a fully equipped farmhouse kitchen. While native plant and wildlife abound on Mahu Whenua (the name translates to “healing of the land”), this magical property borders three favourite South Island ski fields (Coronet Peak, Treble Cone, and Cardrona). It also borders a cat skiing operation and heli-ski terrain, making it a dream base for the snow sport enthusiasts in winter, yet ideal for autumn hikes and outdoor exploration.
Available for reservations between 1st May – 30th September 2018, the Tried, True and Something New luxury package is a unique and exclusive collaboration between Matakauri Lodge and Mahu Whenua Lodge. Package is subject to availability.
