After a year-long renovation, the Matakauri Lodge on New Zealand’s South Island reopens on August 27. The Robertson family, the lodge’s owners, also run the award-winning resorts Kauri Cliffs and the Farm at Cape Kidnappers on the North Island. Each of the lodge’s ten suites boasts its own private balcony affording vistas of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables mountain peaks. Guests will find activities abound in nearby Queenstown, which offers everything from golfing and wine touring to mountain biking and skiing. Matakauri’s amenities include an infinity pool, sauna, and spa, and it has enlisted the renowned Dale Gartland as its head chef. Nightly rates run between $438 and $1,288.
