Blanket Bay is a splendid sanctuary along the shores of Lake Wakatipu with a majestic backdrop of snowcapped peaks, a scenic 45-minute drive from Queenstown.

The stone-and-timber main lodge is dominated by an atmospheric Great Room with beamed ceilings, massive rock fireplaces and towering picture windows; also wood-paneled bar-lounge, games rooms and meal venues ranging from a formal dining room and wine cellar to a sunset-facing terrace. Blanket Bay has a gym, outdoor lap pool and spa suite; fly-fishing, mountain biking, parachuting and heli-skiing also available. No children under age 10.
