Come summer or winter, the Hotel St Moritz serves as an excellent base for discovering the countless wonders in and around Queenstown, located as it is right in the middle of town for easy access to all the fantastic restaurants, bars and shops.
This boutique-style hotel feels fresh and modern from top to toe, a place of capacious guestrooms and suites dressed in sumptuous tones, all enjoying Lake Wakatipu or garden views.
The best of them feature balconies, so you can get even closer to these captivating surrounds.
Modern art pieces and interesting furniture then punctuate the communal spaces of Hotel St Moritz, accenting the sophisticated air that already permeates this property. Meanwhile, fine dining comes in the form of Lombardi Restaurant – an elegant affair overlooking the lake where quality New Zealand dishes are served – and drinks can be nursed in either Lombardi Bar or the attractive Library, complete with a stone fireplace.
Make the most of any downtime here by strolling through the garden and soaking in one of three hot tubs, a welcome addition to the luxury offerings of Hotel St Moritz.
So whether you’ve spent the day out on a helicopter tour, succumbing to adrenaline-pumping activities or hopping between a clutch of local wineries, the steaming waters are sure to tempt you in.
Richly decorated in warm, deep tones, the guestrooms at Hotel St Moritz evoke a sumptuous feel throughout, with generous floorplans to boot. The king or super-king-size beds (which can be converted into a twin setup if needed) are made even more comfortable with mattress toppers, and there’s also a minibar, tea and coffee making facilities, a flat-screen Sky TV and bathrobes in-room. The size of the en suites is then impressive, with their large walk-in rain showers, a monochrome mosaic wall on one side and huge mirror on another. Only the suites feature separate bathtubs, while a selection of both the guestrooms and suites offer delightful views of the lake or garden.
Activities and Entertainment
Queenstown is often called the ‘adventure capital of the world’, so adrenaline junkies will have no problem settling in here. Think canyoning, sky diving, bungy jumping, white-water rafting, paragliding, zip-lining and jet-boating over the Shotover Canyon; or skiing and snowboarding in winter. For something a little slower paced however, you can enjoy golf, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, or ride up the gondola for picture postcard views of the town below you. To slow things down even more, take a tour of one of the local vineyards, dip in thermal pools or simply wander across to Queenstown Gardens. Popular with tourists and locals alike, this lovely part of town provides a peaceful walk through winding paths by the water, that are glorious all year round.
Hotel St Moritz has a small gym for anyone looking to work out, but the top facility has to be its three hot tubs dotted in the property’s lush gardens. In addition, if you have any sports equipment with you – such as ski gear, you can lock these away in the resort’s dedicated storage facilities.
