And there is a reason they feature that bathtub in all the photos - soaking up that view with a glass of wine and the music of your choice is... More

Our family has stayed at several luxury hotels around the world; for instance "The Palace" in New York and "Chateau Lake Louise". The "Azur" is the nicest place we have ever stayed. Having one's own villa is such a luxury as it means no intrusive neighbour noise. The "Azur" staff do everything with such enthusiasm and grace that one feels... More

This is truly a 'hotel' that lives up to all the hype. Stunning views, fantastic rooms and staff that genuinely make you feel welcome and special. The rooms are stunning and incredibly we'll laid out. The view from the bath is worth staying there along (strange I know but you really need to experience it. All the staff were unbelievably...

My wife and I are sort of chameleons while on vacation. We stayed in all sorts of accomodations from Hostels, B&Bs, boutique hotels, and now the AZUR. We like fitting in for various experiences :) I surprised my wife for a two night stay at the AZUR for three reasons...#1, she'd never agree to pay the price (love that she's... More

We stayed at the Azur Lodge villa # 1 for our 5 nights during part of our honeymoon. The place has the most serene views of the lake and the Alps and it provides the ultimate comfort. We loved the heated tiles in the bathroom as well as the great menu selection from the town restaurants with the convenience of... More

We stayed here with an infant recently. The place is amazing. Very clean, luxurious and even the bathtub's view put shame on some of the hotel in Queenstown :) The hotel managers Tania and Gavin are very friendly and will accommodate requests with no problem. The manager has kindly enough to pick the lodge which has the best view. I'm... More
