My wife and I are sort of chameleons while on vacation. We stayed in all sorts of accomodations from Hostels, B&Bs, boutique hotels, and now the AZUR. We like fitting in for various experiences :)

I surprised my wife for a two night stay at the AZUR for three reasons...#1, she'd never agree to pay the price (love that she's so frugal), #2, these were the last two nights of our Bucket List Trip to New Zealand, #3, It was also her birthday.

First thing you need to know, every penny is worth it...every cent of your stay goes towards every detail of your comfort and experience here, from the employees Gavin, Tania, Maria, Danny, little dog Elvis, etc to the heated slate floors throughout the Villas to the awe inspired panoramic views that you are provided to by huge floor to ceiling windows just feet from the edge of your perfectly made Super King Sized Bed. The 5 minute private shuttle lift into QT in their black SUVs couldn't have been more convenient.

We cannot say enough good things about it. My wife would agree for any couple planning a trip to NZ, and if you are staying at least two nights in Queenstown, make the AZUR a memorable place to relax and use as your hub. If we get back to QT, this place will be on our list again. What a Treat!

The best is waking up with your loved one, and just with the lift of your eyelids, you see the peaks over Lake Wakatipu, the low clouds majestically hovering between the lake and mountain peak. It either screams motivation to stare a while as the sun climbs a bit higher, or rush into the lodge and bug Maria to get you one of her delightful coffee concoctions and breakfast started.

While overall the price originally had me nervous because I've never dropped $1k (USD) per night on an accommodation before, it's easy to justify when you do it here, and I'd do it over again without hesitation. If you're like us, plan ahead to make the AZUR a part of your stay if you're traveling to QT and you're fortunate enough to get into one of their 9 Villas. You will never forget this place!

Cheers to Memorable Travels!

We stayed at the Azur Lodge villa # 1 for our 5 nights during part of our honeymoon. The place has the most serene views of the lake and the Alps and it provides the ultimate comfort. We loved the heated tiles in the bathroom as well as the great menu selection from the town restaurants with the convenience of having it delivered and set up in your room. The staff is amazing and so friendly. We felt so pampered by them. They took extra care to make our breakfast to order and were always eager to suggest a place in town or a trip idea. We loved the convenient car service they provided around town. Tania and Gavin along with the other staff were outstanding and we can't wait to go and visit again. If you are in town the Botswana Butchery and Flame are a must!!!!

Room Tip: we stayed at villa # 1 which is closer to the main villa where breakfast is served. Beautiful views...

From the moment we arrived you are treated like Royalty, tea in the main Lodge Lounge and checked in with all services offered during your stay explained to you.Your luggage is taken to your Private Cottage and when you are ready courtesy of the Lodge Golf buggies you are transported to your oasis of peace and tranquility overlooking lake wakatipu. With King Double Bed that sent you to heaven, Living Room with Surround Sound a beautiful fire, lovely art and a Bathroom with a view yes a bath open windows to a world of mountains, snow and lake Wow Wow Wow. Breakfast was a most enjoyable time, no rush and Eggs Benedict prepared just perfectly. Thank you to Tania, Gavin and the Team for making Day 3 of our Honeymoon so very special, think I already know where I want to spend our Anniversary.

Room Tip: Cottage 5 is the best location with spectacular views over the Lake

We stayed here with an infant recently. The place is amazing. Very clean, luxurious and even the bathtub's view put shame on some of the hotel in Queenstown :) The hotel managers Tania and Gavin are very friendly and will accommodate requests with no problem.
The manager has kindly enough to pick the lodge which has the best view. I'm obliged at least to share it with other customer at least :) Having said that I think all other lodge has spectacular view as well

Room Tip: all rooms has excellent view

If you want to visit one of the most special places in the world this is it. The views are breathtaking, the service is over the top, the rooms are spacious and luxurious and it has the best bathtub view in the world. In villa dining is available and the resort will carry you all over town at a moments notice. Cannot say enough, for a special occasion or if you have a pile of money this place is over the top!!!
