A true "retreat"
Your ensuite has a walk-in shower or light the candles and just relax in the claw-foot bath. The guest living room offers an open fire, deep cushioned sofas and chairs, a dining room and kitchen space.
Enjoy a two-course dinner, delivered to your villa to enjoy at your leisure and select a bottle of wine from the extensive wine cellar. Breakfast provisions are provided to create breakfast when you choose, or chef will prepare it for you.
Guests are welcome to play tennis on the astro-turf court, petanque or croquet on the lawn. Or simply choose to relax in the Fantail Spa with its sauna, massage room and an outdoor hot tub overlooking the stunning mountains and Lake Pukaki.
Just a 40-minute drive to Mt Cook National Park, with a myriad of day walks to enjoy. You can arrange a heli-flight, take a picnic hamper to enjoy on a distance glacier. On your return in the evening you can enjoy canapes and a drink, and a relaxing dinner.
Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat is highly recommended by our expect Paul who describes it as “Simply spectacular”.
Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers are unique in that they terminate amongst temperate rainforest almost at sea level.
The area has some great walking including half and full day guided walks on the glaciers themselves and the walk around the beautiful “mirror lake” Lake Matheson. Helicopter flights into the mountains are a particularly spectacular attraction.
The township of Fox Glacier is overlooked by Mount Tasman and Mount Cook, New Zealand’s highest peaks.
