Eclectic design and contemporary architecture take a front-row position on Lake Wakatipu at QT Queenstown. The hotel, which opened in December, has 69 unique guest rooms, which, in addition to bold decor, feature floor-to-ceiling windows providing panoramic views of the enchanting scenery on the horizon. Elsewhere, the interiors have been designed to highlight the hotel’s alpine environs, with vivid flashes of color and artful graphics—like the renderings of skiers superimposed onto florescent mountain visuals in the lobby—enlivening the property’s après-ski ambience. The restaurant and bar, fashioned as the Bazaar Interactive Marketplace, offer a mosaic of global cuisines while also highlighting the abundance of flora, fauna, and livestock that define the lush Central Otago region. Every detail of the hotel has been tailored toward the modern traveler: Think everything from stand-alone bathtubs perfect for a post-ski or post-hike soak to all of the accoutrements you need to make the perfect gin martini.
