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

This property was worth the trip to NZ alone. The views from the patios are stunning. Privacy is excellent. The service was by far the best we received in NZ (and Bora Bora afterwards). Every person on staff knew our daily activities so they could better cater to our needs. The villas are very well appointed with excellent bathrooms. I... More

My husband, my 7yrs old son and I just spent our Xmas there from 23-26/Dec. We were blown away by the view from our lodge. The staff there were very attentive and spontaneous without being pretended. On the last day of our stay, Michelle just casually asked me where we were heading to the next day, which is Franz Joseph,... More
