The only thing that equals the beauty of Queenstown is a stay at Azur. From the moment you arrive you feel like you are at home with close family attending to your every need. The rooms are incredibly appointed with every luxury possible, from the heated floors to the rain shower. When we woke up on our first morning we... More

We had read the reviews and were expecting to be impressed, but standing in your villa, surveying the rooms and then the stunning views of the mountains and lake, you really have to say to yourself, "this is amazing." I can only repeat what has been said in so many other reviews. Staff were all friendly and couldn't do enough... More

My partner and I celebrated our 10th anniversary with a weekend in Queenstown staying at Azur. As it was a special event we wanted somewhere special and luxurious and we were not disappointed. I discovered Azur on TripAdvisor and the glowing reviews set very high expectations. Not having been to this part of NZ before and only seeing pictures of... More

Having just stayed at Huka Lodge in Taupo the few nights before, Azur faced some pretty stiff competition to impress us. But impress us it did. The views are breathtaking and the accommodation has everything that you need, but it is the friendliness of the staff and their can do attitude that makes Azur stand out. In fact, it is... More

What a place. If you like luxury without all the snooty-ness stay here. This place was amazing. The lodge itself was amazing. The people bent over backwards to make our honeymoon extra speacial. They will get dinner for you and set it up, bring you DVD's, or just make appetizers and wine and bring it over to your villa....The main... More

Azur is not a hotel – it seems more like someone’s hobby. The feel you get is that it is not out to take money off you but to make you feel like a guest in a country house. They make it easy to forget that the rack rate is US $1200 a night. Azur has a maximum of 18... More

Comparison: We looked into five luxury hotels in Queenstown: Spire, Eichardt’s Private, Sofitel, Blanket Bay, and Azur. We narrowed down to Azur for the below reasons: Spire and Sofitel doesn’t have good unobstructed lake view and you can’t go to Queenstown and miss the lake view. Eichardt’s Private is on the waterfront, not private or relaxing as the area is... More

We were lucky enough to stay at Azur for the frst week of our Honeymoon. Words cannot express the fabulous time we had at Azur. Everything from the view, the rooms to the wondeful team at Azur was perfect. Azur is a 10 minute drive from Queestown and the team at Azur is happy to take you whereever needed. The... More

We spent three nights with the amazingly discreet and very attentive staff of the Azur. In every possible way they exceeded our expectations. Everything about the Azur was special. The amazing views, dedicated staff, beautifully appointed rooms and the remarkable bathtubs!
