We stopped at BigSky en route from Te Anau to Blenheim. We sent a booking in at about 9pm and arrived 15 minutes later - despite our short notice, Kay was ready for us! The room was lovely, clean, and comfortable. It had a very nice bathroom and opened out into the garden. Her garden is beautiful and breakfast was delicious. There are only two units and they are separate from the main house - connected through the interior garden only - so it feels very private. We are not sure what other lodging in Omarama has to offer, but my guess is that if you are looking for a place that is a cut above the rest, the place to stay is BigSky.
