I booked our one night stay as a surprise trip for my wife and I to celebrate our anniversary. Everything about the Azur far exceeded my expectations, from the incredibly helpful advise in the planning stages, to the welcome we received upon arrival, the transfers to and from town and the entire staff in general made our experience one that...

This hotel is located a few minutes outside of Queenstown on the way to Glenorchy, but that's never an issue because the wonderful staff is only to happy to drive you into town and come pick you up at a moment's notice. Very helpful with restaurant recommendations as well. Rooms are fantastic with plenty of space and great views. Would... More

My partner and I decided to splurge for my birthday. This place is definitely worth every penny! The view is to die for, rooms are spectacular and Omg! That bath! I think we had about 4 baths in the space of 24 hours! Everything was taken care of and you really got true 1st class service from all the staff.... More

Hard to add to the impressive set of reviews currently on TripAdvisor. We stayed in both villa 8 (kids) and villa 9 (parents). It is true that the road back up to the main lodge is very steep but the kids loved it and they have a golf cart for those people who don't want to do the walk. Views... More

Gavin, Tania and all the staff provide a delightful, discrete hospitality. Accommodation is of a very high standard and the views are exceptional of the beautiful lake Wakatipu, Cecil Peake and Mt Nicholas. Where else can you take a jacuzzi overlooking such a wonderful vista? The windows completely draw back so it is as if you are bathing outside. We... More

The Azur is within walking distance to Queenstown in a completely private and romantic setting.The beautiful sunrise and sunsets of the Remarkables can be enjoyed from your open air jacuzzi and throughout your entire villa. The warm friendly staff is very accommodating, help schedule your activities, and makes every need or want an actuality. Their happy hour is a unique... More

Each suite has a great view and the quality of design and construction is of the highest quality. They are small stand alone buildings, so noise of neighbors or that you might wish to make is not an issue. We met with more than half of the staff during our stay. Every one was professional and extremely friendly and eager... More

The lodge really does deserve all the praise it receives. I initially rang the general manager Gavin to discuss the lodge and make sure it was what I was looking for our stay (being a special occasion) and we were not disappointed. Sometimes when you visit a place which has received so many good reviews your expectations are already set... More

We had a flawless experience at Azur. The setting was breathtaking and the villas are charming, comfortable, well maintained and spacious with extraordinary views. The element that really sets this place apart is its staff! We have never felt so personally and completely welcome at a property. They will prepare a meal for you on a whim and have dedicated...
