It is somewhat difficult to put into words the overall feeling of total relaxation that overcomes you once you are settled into your Villa at Azur.
My wife and I arrived after a long 6 hour drive and were welcomed warmly by Tania who showed us around the main lodge building but then recognising we were tired took us to our villa. Afternoon tea is included at Azur and so this soon arrived, beautiful cake, coffee and wine, what a great way to start a Queenstown vacation!
The 9 villas are spacious and private with unbelievable views. It is like your own private, constantly changing movie, fantastic.
Everything about a stay at Azur encourages you to relax and let the staff take care of your every need. Be it breakfast in your villa, a transfer into Queenstown (5 minutes away) or dine in at night using local restaurants that the staff work with (a fabulous concept that even has the lowly hamburger transformed into a delightful meal).
We were bitterly disappointed to leave after just 2 short nights and could have easily spent a week here.
Azur lodge is located just out of the township of Queenstown itself but with your own car and the lodge transfer service this is not an issue. The views alone more than make up for this.
The lodge unlike many of the 'super' lodges does not include dinner but with so many excellent restaurants in the Queenstown region you would only miss out if they did. The in Villa evening dining comes at an extra cost but is a great way to dine in. You order off the a la carte menu of several local restaurants and the villa staff pick the meal up for you, bring it to the lodge, flash things up and bring it to you, brilliant.
The views from every part of the villa are amazing, and that includes the bath.
We found our stay here to be amongst the best we have ever experienced and the staff played a big part of that. You felt almost part of the family, they were relaxed, friendly but always professional. I cannot wait to go back.
