Glenorchy, New Zealand
Blanket Bay was one of New Zealand's first luxury lodges and two decades on, is still top of its game.
Built in the grand style of the finest alpine lodges, Blanket Bay has received countless international accolades since opening in 1999. The 60,000 acre property is situated at the northern end of Lake Wakatipu forty minutes’ drive from Queenstown.
Blanket Bay has seven magnificent suites and five lodge rooms, all with stunning views over Lake Wakatipu and the Humboldt Mountains. The style, comfort and detailed luxury of all the accommodation guarantees a memorable stay. In addition to the lodge suites and rooms, the separately located four bedroom Villa situated within the lodge grounds offers the ultimate luxury and privacy. Facilities include the games room, spa, gym, Jacuzzi, steam rooms, beauty therapy suite and heated outdoor pool.
On warmer evenings under a clear southern sky, the terrace is a magnificent setting to dine with the fire behind and the extraordinary mountain and lake vistas in front.

We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
