Whare Kea Lodge, New Zealand
Whare Kea Lodge is a peaceful retreat on the shores of Lake Wanaka in New Zealand. It appears to magically float on the water, with the uninterrupted views of the Southern Alps forming a breathtaking backdrop.
The award-winning lodge has been transformed into an exclusive villa offering a private retreat for up to 12 guests. Each of the 6 suites has an en-suite bathroom, a private deck and direct access to the gardens. The open plan living and dining area feature floor to ceiling windows capturing the ever-changing light and natural beauty of the lake and the Mt Aspiring National Park.
An additional lounge and games room with a billiards table provide plenty of space for you to enjoy. A surperbly designed, full chef’s kitchen allows guest to self cater or to hire an in-house chef to look after some or all of your culinary needs during your stay.
A clever combination of intimacy, warmth and consideration of the surrounding vistas, the clean architectural timber lines and glass walls envelope comfortable interiors decorated with a combination of contemporary furniture, antiques and local artworks.
Whare Kea Lodge is 15 minutes from the bustling resort town of Wanaka with its choice of cafes, restaurants, bike trails and numerous activities on offer.
