“Brilliant location - fantastic service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

This is a wonderful place. It's very selective about what it provides and what it doesn't, but that all adds to the experience. The individual villas (they are far more than rooms) are perfectly placed on the hillside to be completely private. A jacuzzi bath with the windows thrown open and looking over Lake Wakatipu to the mountains opposite AND the Remarkables has to be experienced. But the staff here are the real stars. They are the best combination of NZ friendliness and complete efficiency. Well done to Tania & Gavin for getting this just right. Highly recommended.

All I can say is wow! The view is mind blowing and the resort is just lovely. The heated floors and the tub!! I am a tub soaker and let's just say it doesn't get any better than this...am dreaming of Azur again in the future-impeccable service too!

Beautiful individual villas with sitting rooms, terrace and lovely bathtub all facing the lake and Remarkable Mountains are so comfortable with mesmerizing view it is hard to leave! Every need is fulfilled by a welcoming and friendly staff including golf cart rides up the hill to the main lodge for breakfast ( which they will happily deliver to one's villa) and car rides into and back from Queenstown. Best of both worlds in terms of seclusion, incredible views and access to shopping and dining in town.

We arrived here after driving thru the "pass" to get to Queenstown just a smudge faster. To say my nerves were about done in after all those hairpin turns on the "wrong" side of the road... might be an understatement. But I safely navigated the roundabouts, pedestrians and finally the winding road up the side of the hill overlooking the lake to arrive here. We were in love with the place from the moment we stepped in our room. The views. The views. The views. Wow!

But after less than an hour and 2 requests for help later, we soon realized that the service just might trump the views in this charming hillside retreat. Efficient, kind and no fuss, we had each request taken care of and confirmed within 30 minutes of asking for it. They got us reservations to eat in the best places in town, reservations to fly with a great helicopter Milford Sound experience and were happy to help at all hours, day and night.

Also -- they will make you whatever you ask for at breakfast. We stayed 3 nights and I basically just did a large breakfast in and medium sized dinner out each day and was happy as could be.

Room Tip: We stayed in #3 and it was just perfect.

We ended our honeymoon trip (Fiji and NZ's South Island) at the best place I've ever stayed. The villa was top-notch all the way with the most stunning views, but the staff really make this place so special. Tania, Maria, and the rest of the team have mastered the perfect balance of attentiveness and respect of privacy - and they went out of their way (with trip bookings, rides into town, must-do advice, amazing meals, etc.) to make sure our honeymoon was incredible.

imagine the best b&b experience ... this is better. Great room, spectacular view, excellent food, exceptional service.

I have nothing else to add, and I don't like the 200 character minimum in these reviews.

Room Tip: all the rooms/villas are great.

At the end of our 17 days traveling through the South Island we came to rest at Azur. The quality of the room was world class; beautifully appointed with every amenity you could want. The chilled bottle of wine ready in the room upon arrival (to be sipped while the sun set over the lake) set the tone for the entire stay. The breakfast the following morning served on our patio was special. Don't miss Azur if you want a quiet and beautiful setting high above the frenzy of Queenstown.
