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...

Azur is a luxury lodge and consists of 9 separate villas together with a main lodge where breakfast is served along with complimentary canapés and wine/cocktails in the evening. Each villa features an... More

Just a wonderful place for peace and tranquility after enjoying the activities of the Queenstown area. The view from the deck of our room was stunning. The staff just superb. Great food and drink. Using the hotel's car service to and from town was perfect. Azur is a great place.

Jane and I just spent three nights at Azur Lodge. It was absolutely outstanding, from the quality of the individual villas and their views, their individual privacy, the friendly, helpful and attentive staff - nothing was too much. As good a lodge and as enjoyable an experience as we have had anywhere in the world. Would thoroughly recommend. Very many... More

There are nine villas at Azur and we were quite ecstatic that we were able to obtain one of them over the Christmas Holiday (since it is their busy season). From the moment we booked the lodge, Tania inquired about our flight information to ensure a seamless pickup from the airport. Sure enough, four months later, as soon as we... More

Azur Lodge is outstanding on the two counts that really matter, location and service. Each of the few rooms is a separate lodge, placed on the hillside outside Queenstown so as to make the most of the wonderful views over the lake. Service is equally excellent, led by Tanya who clearly loves her job. The rest goes without saying in... More
