Located near Te Anau in the far south of New Zealand's South Island, Fiordland Lodge occupies a truly special spot. Designed to make the most of the views over Lake Te Anau, Mt Luxmore and the Murchison Mountain range, the views make the journey here more than worthwhile. It's the perfect place to enjoy the fiords, whether you are heading to Doubtful or Milford Sound, going heli-hiking on the Kepler or Milford Track. or plan to get out on the sounds on a kayak.
The Great Room lounge has double-storey floor to ceiling glass taking in the mountain scenery, and you'll find adirondack chairs on the lawn if you want to sit and soak it all in. The lodge is one of New Zealand's luxury lodges, a mark of the superb standards of service and fine cuisine you'll find here. It has been built in a log-cabin style that's reminiscent of a ranch in North America, with huge log walls, large roaring fireplaces in winter and a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
There are twelve guest rooms here, ten of which are in the main building and all have a balcony, and two log cabins set further back from the main lodge and good for those looking for a little more privacy. All have a gas fireplace, underfloor heating in the bathrooms and air conditioning. WiFi is available throughout the lodge, too.
Dining is a real highlight here, with a-la-carte breakfasts and dinners, pre-dinner canapés served in the Great Room and an extensive wine list.
