Stayed her with my fiancé and then husband (were married during our stay) in July 2013. We both absolutely loved our stay and how the villas are exactly as they look in the photos. I wished we had of stayed longer (total of 2 nights). The views are incredible. You feel completely secluded from all other villas and the service... More

This is a wonderful place. It's very selective about what it provides and what it doesn't, but that all adds to the experience. The individual villas (they are far more than rooms) are perfectly placed on the hillside to be completely private. A jacuzzi bath with the windows thrown open and looking over Lake Wakatipu to the mountains opposite AND... More

All I can say is wow! The view is mind blowing and the resort is just lovely. The heated floors and the tub!! I am a tub soaker and let's just say it doesn't get any better than this...am dreaming of Azur again in the future-impeccable service too!

Beautiful individual villas with sitting rooms, terrace and lovely bathtub all facing the lake and Remarkable Mountains are so comfortable with mesmerizing view it is hard to leave! Every need is fulfilled by a welcoming and friendly staff including golf cart rides up the hill to the main lodge for breakfast ( which they will happily deliver to one's villa)... More

We arrived here after driving thru the "pass" to get to Queenstown just a smudge faster. To say my nerves were about done in after all those hairpin turns on the "wrong" side of the road... might be an understatement. But I safely navigated the roundabouts, pedestrians and finally the winding road up the side of the hill overlooking the... More

We ended our honeymoon trip (Fiji and NZ's South Island) at the best place I've ever stayed. The villa was top-notch all the way with the most stunning views, but the staff really make this place so special. Tania, Maria, and the rest of the team have mastered the perfect balance of attentiveness and respect of privacy - and they... More

imagine the best b&b experience ... this is better. Great room, spectacular view, excellent food, exceptional service. I have nothing else to add, and I don't like the 200 character minimum in these reviews.

At the end of our 17 days traveling through the South Island we came to rest at Azur. The quality of the room was world class; beautifully appointed with every amenity you could want. The chilled bottle of wine ready in the room upon arrival (to be sipped while the sun set over the lake) set the tone for the... More

Before even occupying Azur, conversations with Gavin and Tanya and their colleagues were extremely pleasant. We enjoyed our trip from then Queenstown international Airport as Gavin drove us around downtown and suburb Queenstown as a introductory tour. When we explained that we would like to experience the gondola, luge rides, and paragliding, colleagues at Azur were more than happy to... More

Azur is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Queenstown. The floor to ceiling windows in the villas have incredible views down onto Lake Wakatipu. The hotel staff are very friendly, courteous and helpful and are always willing to drive you down to central Queenstown whenever needed. The breakfast is also very tasty, with a selection of juices, fruits and... More

Set to best capture the views of both Lake Wakatipu & the surrounding mountains,Azur is beautiful property set amongst 3.5 acres of native bush, it features a magnificent lodge and nine 90 sqm freestanding villas. It captures the best of both worlds, amazing views and it is in a tranquil & isolated setting yet only 5 minutes from downtown. ... more   less
