WHARE KEA LODGE
Strikingly designed in timber and glass, Whare Kea Lodge appears to float on the edge of Lake Wanaka against the dramatic backdrop of the Southern Alps. The inviting lodge, with its light-filled interior and spectacular vistas, was among the first of New Zealand’s luxury lodges and continues to attract sophisticated adventurers looking for exclusive luxury holiday accommodation.
Whare Kea’s superbly comfortable, spacious living and dining area with open fire and bar, its two master suites and four deluxe suites, each with a veranda and en-suite bathroom, offer an ideal combination of shared and also private spaces well suited to accommodate small groups of up to 12 guests. The interior is warm and welcoming, decorated with a mix of antique and contemporary furniture, with artworks and sculpture by local New Zealand artists. There is also a Billiards and Games room, guest office, massage room, sundecks overlooking a vast lawn where helicopters can land, and an outdoor hot tub hidden nearby among the spinnaker grass.
From Autumn 2015, Whare Kea Lodge & Chalet owners Martyn and Louise Myer have decided to return Whare Kea to its original roots and are offering it for the exclusive use of groups only – making it the ideal luxury holiday rental for families or groups of friends wishing to soak up the splendour of Wanaka and surrounds.
The lodge is a wonderful base for a wealth of leisure diversions, including skiing at the resorts of Cardrona Alpine Resort and Treble Cone, heli-skiing in the Southern Alps, cycling, horse riding, flight seeing in a vintage aircraft over the lake and visiting the famous wineries of Central Otago. The picturesque resort town of Wanaka with a wide choice of galleries, restaurants and shopping is only a 10-minute drive away.
