Here’s a new waterfront retreat that’s wrapped around surreal views of Lake Wakatipu and snow-capped peaks. New Zealand’s Waimarino Lodge offers guests a series of sleek, minimalist villas on a sloping site offering water and mountain access and incredible views. Green roofs blend their clean lines into the landscape, and on the interior, the contemporary design and decor delivers comfort among the rugged scenery.
The property will also offer visitors access to their spa and yoga studio, lounge, restaurant, and micro-distillery. With a focus on sustainability, the property is powered by off-grid technology, lake and spring-fed water, and organic treatment systems, while food will be prepared from the onsite vegetable garden and orchard.
Neighboring Department of Conservation land, the site connects you to nature while just a short walk connects you to the edge of the lake. The surrounding bush is home to native birdlife offering beautiful hikes and adventure.
