The resort is situated a little out of the main town of Wanaka on quite a large plot. It consists of a main central administrative, dining and leisure area; and a number of one and two story buildings, with hotel rooms some of which have balconies. Parking is provided outside most of the room areas. We were booked in to... More

Beautifully appointed accommodation that really is hard to fault. Comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge area and nice balcony. Two issues. 1. the charge for using a credit card. The one and only time during our trip to New Zealand. I paid cash and would not stay there again because of this. 2.The charge for room wifi. At these... More

We loved this hotel. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment and loved the layout of the room and the hotel. It is some distance from the city centre, but that was to our advantage as Wanaka was so busy due to the town staging a bicycle event. Definitely recommend this hotel!

Loved the pool area with all the individual spas scattered outside by the swimming pools. Enjoyed the luxurious feeling of being able to have a drink in the spa. Nicely equipped fitness center. The rooms were very comfortable. Only negatives were 1) could hear everything next door 2) had to park a long way from the room, 3) was very... More

Great place, reasonable price for what you pay for, great facilities. Pool is amazing, heaps of sun. Room was a perfect size for a couple although I highly recommend having the window/door open all day/evening as the rooms can get very hot at night time. The bed was a lot firmer than expected but I guess we are soft bed... More

We found our studio units needed better sound proofing and doors that can be closed quietly. Can be noisy. They were adequate for our needs, with great showers but not a lot of room for making a hot drink - you need to be agile to manage the cupboard! When you have "Resort" in the title,my expectations are a little... More

We enjoyed the use of the one bedroom apartment which was well equipped although the complimentary tea was rather limited. We did not use the restaurant as we went out every night. It was a pleasant half an hour walk to town. Over the 3 days I got very frustrated with the so called free internet connection (for le club... More

Our room was very comfortable and clean. We had fantastic views of the lake and mountains. Spacious bathroom. Double basins were a nice touch. Staff very friendly. Excellent value for money ($130/kingbed room). Great facilities for couples and families. We took advantage of the on site Spa but this was not as professional as I would have expected as one...

Stayed here with 3 friends in a 3 bed suite. It is a lovely hotel and was clean and modern. The pools were great and we swam every night (even though it was snowing)! I would only comment that it is not in the centre of Wanaka and so you will need a car to get to it - or... More
