We arrived at Azur seeking a luxury weekend getaway in Queenstown. Our #1 priority was to find somewhere both 'luxury' and totally relaxing given our busy work schedules in Auckland, and we definitely found both at Azur!
From the moment we arrived (Tania was waiting at Queenstown airport arrivals for our luxury transfer to Azur) we felt very welcome and immediately felt very at home. The ladies at the lodge are wonderful chefs - rather than being presented with a menu, almost anything was possible 'on-demand' for breakfast, and we had a delicious 'made to order' breakfast both mornings, including breakfast in bed on the second morning. Afternoon tea was also amazing!
The villa accommodation was both luxurious and comfortable. The highlights were most definitely the view of Lake Wakatipu and Cecil Peak - especially amazing from the gorgeous over-sized bath tub - perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine!
Unlike other lodges, the main point of difference with Azur are that town transfers are included on the tariff (so no extra dollars added at every step of the way). Gavin and the team were only too happy to provide a pick up and drop off service in town (great for when we dined in one of town's restaurants) in the lodge's lovely black 4x4 - only 5 mins to town.
Overall the plus points of Azur is how relaxed the atmosphere is. Azur is luxury, but without the 'rules' of other lodges that make you feel unable to relax.
Thanks to Tania, Gavin, Keiko and the team for a wonderful stay and first class service!
