Ever wanted the luxury of a 5 star room with the personal service of a B&B? That's exactly what you'll get at the Azur. Every part of this stay exceeded our expectations. The room is incredible. The views are spectacular. We stayed in villa 4 which was nice and private, but I imagine that all of them are very private. We just didn't have anyone on our right side, just the gorgeous views. The room is so clean, comfortable, with every amenity you can and can't imagine! Floor heaters, de-misters on the bathroom mirrors, soft ground lighting you can switch on from your bed in case you need to get up in the middle of the night for a bathroom run but don't want to blind yourself turning all the lights on. Drinks and snacks in the room and minibar are all complementary. A previous reviewer was right -- they don't nickel and dime you here.
When we first arrived, we were sat in a living room of what was a house before. It was just beautiful, so modern. We were introduced to Maria who makes the most incredible cookies and banana nut bread. In fact, as we were given the tour and we passed the kitchen, I smelled the bread and they quickly offered to have it warmed and sent up to our room after we had our dinner! And they did just that, yum!
Breakfast was awesome -- we sat in their very modern dining room where breakfast was laid out. Then Maria came and asked if you'd like anything cooked -- anything you want! You just name it. I asked for scrambled eggs and chocolate chip pancakes. The best part is that they don't have an 'end time' for breakfast -- they let you come and go as you please and they know exactly when all of their guests have eaten or not (there are only a few villas here!). The fact that they have so few rooms really allows them to be extra extra attentive to all their guests.
Yes, this place is expensive but this is one of the few, if any, places that I would say is 110% worth it. You won't find a place like this anywhere -- I feel truly lucky to have been able to stay here. You will NOT be disapointed. If you are coming all the way to Queenstown for your vacation, make the most of what it has to offer and stay here!
