It would be hard to imagine a more perfect view than the one from Azur Lodge, this luxury accommodation offers amazing uninterrupted views of Lake Wakatipu & the surrounding mountains. Azur offers nine identical free standing villas and a main lodge that houses the lobby, breakfast dining room & stunning guest lounge.

Azur is located on a hilltop in a private & secluded part of Queenstown offering complete privacy & isolation, yet it is only 5 minutes by complementary transfer from downtown & 15 minutes from Queenstown Airport. Azur is renowned for personalized friendly and professional service, nothing is too much trouble.

Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Probably one of the best property we have stayed in Asia pacific. Me and my wife were on our honeymoon and and we enjoyed a lot. Every detail about our taste was taken care off. All the staffs were courteous and always happy to help. They can go to any extent to make their guest happy. They also had pickup and drop to the town center. Overall I loved this place and will definitely come back.

Review:   I wasn't sure if any hotel would be worth over $1,000/night until I came here. The complex is composed of 8-9 independent villas. Each have an identical layout of an open space consisting of a living room, bedroom, and a bar that look out to a spectacular lake view. The bathroom suite also provides this view and offers a spa-like atmosphere with spa-like toiletries. To be honest, I have seen better accommodations with (arguably) better views, but what makes this place special are the people. The staff is excellent without being overbearing, they provide great service when you request it and disappear when you want to be alone. There are many other small touches that add up to a great stay: like your personal wifi spot in your villa, a secluded balcony, made to order breakfast, a free, stocked mini-bar. So if you can afford it, stay at Azur - you'll be in for a treat.
