Lakestone Lodge, Lake Pukaki
Lake Pukaki Lodge Escape with Gourmet Dining & Hot Springs Access

Leave it all behind for the awe-inspiring natural beauty of Lake Pukaki, located between Queenstown and Christchurch on New Zealand’s South Island. Relax and unwind while soaking up some of New Zealand’s best views – including stunning vistas of Mount Cook – with a romantic escape at the spectacularly located Lakestone Lodge. Picture yourself stargazing in one of the clearest skies in the world from the comfort of your private lake-view bathtub, and indulging in decadent food crafted with fresh, locally-sourced produce.

Be greeted with welcome chocolates and a signature cocktail on arrival, and enjoy delicious daily home-cooked breakfasts and an indulgent three-course dinner featuring local produce on your first night. Plus, make the most of the great outdoors with a pass for the gorgeous Tekapo Springs.

Blissfully off-grid, Lakestone Lodge is the perfect spot to relax, wine, dine and discover the jaw-dropping beauty of the surrounding area, whether by hiking, cycling, a helicopter ride or simply gazing up at the incredibly clear, star-studded night skies. Stay amid the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve – one of only eight dark sky reserves in the world – where light pollution is strictly controlled, making it one of the best places in the world for stargazing.

The lodge's restaurant offers dishes crafted by the talented in-house chef using local produce, providing you with a true taste of the area's cuisine and ingredients – with an exquisite wine list to match.

Your spacious accommodation features a super-king-sized bed and an ensuite bathroom with a shower cubicle and a bathtub strategically positioned beneath the window, so you can soak up the magnificent views as you bathe. Indulge in a Lakestone Lodge signature cocktail when you arrive for the perfect start to your escape.


Wake up to daily breakfast served in your choice of the lodge’s dining room, your guest room or in the lodge’s courtyard. Enjoy a home-cooked breakfast like bacon and eggs, pancakes or an omelette, along with a selection of fresh fruit, homemade muesli, yoghurt, orange juice, bread and spreads.

On your first evening at the lodge, you'll sit down for a complimentary, chef-prepared three-course dinner. Enjoy the lodge’s daily-changing set menu, based around local produce such as salmon, venison or lamb, served with freshly baked bread. It’s the perfect way to experience the unique flavours of this region.


Relax with a backdrop of the breathtaking Lake Tekapo, mountains and native alpine plants with a complimentary general pool pass for two to Tekapo Springs. Offering three-tiered hot pools ranging from 36-40 degrees celsius, this is the most idyllic place to sit back, relax and soak.

As night falls, take advantage of the incredible night skies unique to this part of the world. Lakestone Lodge offers a Night Sky Experience (surcharges apply, weather permitting) where you will be taken to a secret spot to witness the most amazing starry skies.

New Zealand is famous for being home to some of Hollywood’s most spectacular film locations.
