Villa Del Lago - Best Luxury Hotel in Queenstown

Curious about Queenstown? Wondering what all the fuss is all about? Well if you’d like to up your heart rate and experience something truly thrilling and adventurous - then you need to head to the resort town of Queenstown. The non-stop fun-factor and adrenaline pumping activities are enough to leave you with stories that last a lifetime. When it comes to luxury experiences in this vibey part of New Zealand, look no further than a stay at Villa Del Lago, who recently swept away the title for The Best Luxury Hotel in Queenstown from the prestigious Luxury Lifestyle Awards

The Villa del Lago is a small boutique complex of premium condo style apartments and King Suites. Combining a luxury stay with all the gripping attractions is a match made in travel heaven.

Queenstown cradles the shores of the glittering Lake Wakatipu, with the dramatic Southern Alps mountain range as its backdrop. The visual enchantment is a sight to behold, attracting travellers from around New Zealand and the world to marvel at her mesmerising beauty, pristine natural splendour, and of course, to partake in the smorgasbord of rip-roaring recreation. It's clearly not known as ‘The Adventure Capital of the World’ for nothing, being the birthplace of bungee jumping, plus offering zip-lining, alpine skiing, skydiving, white water rafting, paragliding, four-wheel driving, off road and mountain biking, hiking, scenic-flights, off road buggy expeditions, water sports, jet boating through icy river canyons, trails, and bike riding. Naturally, it draws huge crowds during the summer and winter seasons, but peace and tranquillity can always be found up the mountain, alongside the lake, or of course, at Villa Del Lago - the luxurious villas and suites on the shore.

This lakeside accommodation is all self-contained, you can just arrive, and relax. Thanks to the outrageously gorgeous natural surroundings, guests are awe-struck by the twinkling clear night sky and Milky Way, the snow-capped peaks, the bluest-of-blue skies and of course, the glistening waterfront - all from your own terrace or private balcony. Their majestic lake and mountain views are available from all the accommodation options, securing a most scenic stay. The Queenstown hiking and cycling trail runs just below the complex affording great tranquillity as all vehicle traffic is kept well away from the hotel.

The category of room options includes one bedroom King Suites, and two and three bedroomed villas - all completely serviced. They all feature separate bedrooms, gas fireplace, spacious living areas, fully equipped kitchen for meal preparation, private bathrooms, separate laundry areas and an exterior balcony or terrace.

The decor and furnishings are modern and contemporary, creating a stylish abode from which to enjoy the myriad of opportunities in the scintillating town.

The business is owned and operated by a husband-and-wife team, Nik and Charlotte Kiddle.
