Lake Pukaki, New Zealand
Take in the incredible highlighter blue hues of Lake Pukaki with majestic Aoraki Mount Cook standing tall in the distance.
Lakestone Lodge is a six bedroom luxury hosted B&B situated overlooking the stunning turquoise waters of Lake Pukaki. Imagine waking up to some of the most stunning views in the country, or reflecting on your day as the sun sets on Aoraki Mount Cook. The property is north facing, ensuring natural daylight throughout the property. The extensive grounds have been planted with a beautiful collection of over 1,000 native trees, grasses and shrubs, which attract native birdlife.
With floor to ceiling windows, take in the full uninterrupted views from one of the six guestrooms. All guest rooms have been stylishly designed with an eye to sustainable living and cosy insulation. Each contains an ensuite bathroom and a luxurious bathtub nestled under a window, so you can enjoy the view while soaking. Spend the night in a super-king bed in a quiet, relaxing room and awake to the sight of snowy peaks and crystal blue waters.
Come nightfall the views do not diminish, but change to a dazzling display of the Milky Way in one of the world's few International Dark Sky Reserves.
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
