My favourite place to stay in South Island, Matuka Lodge is a beautifully designed modern building with an elegant interior, and delightful, attentive hosts. Guests are thoroughly spoiled – every possible requirement is provided and it is very hard to leave and move on! There are fabulous views of a gorgeous plant fringed pool, stocked with entertaining fish, and beyond, animals grazing on land reminiscent of African plains, with snowy mountains in the distance. Come prepared to take loads of photographs of this wonderful view. Nearby Twizel is a pleasant place with some very good restaurants and friendly people. There is more to explore here than you would at first think, and it is a good location for visiting Mount Cook (better weather than up in the Mount Cook village for a start!). If we can visit New Zealand again, we will be back, and hopefully stay longer!
