Bespoke luxury by the lakeside

Luxury apartments and individual lakeside residences at The Rees Hotel add sophistication to Queenstown’s stunning scenery.

Situated on the shores of beautiful Lake Wakatipu, the Rees Hotel Queenstown is a sophisticated five-star hotel with a difference.

Offering a unique combination of hotel, apartment and private residential accommodation, The Rees provides luxury at every turn.

What’s more, an in-house travel curator is on hand to create bespoke holiday memories, while the True South Dining Room provides for exquisite private dining experiences featuring the freshest local produce. Adjacent to but separate from the main hotel building, The Rees Lakeside Residences offer seclusion and privacy in a breath-taking setting. The 164m² three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom, air-conditioned villas offer unparalleled lake and mountain views, and are an ideal setting for families and multi-generational groups looking for private accommodation with space and independence. 

A spacious outdoor terrace, adjacent to the living area, boasting lake and mountain views is the perfect setting to effortlessly entertain guests. The Residences’ lower level terraces are home to generously sized spa pools and all-weather Bose sound systems.   

The bespoke holiday options don’t end with the accommodation itself, however. Unlike any other hotel in New Zealand, The Rees Residences offer the services of an in-house Luxury Travel Curator. From the moment guests check availability to the moment they depart Queenstown, The Rees Residences’ personal curator is there every step of the way, to ensure the experience is designed specially to suit individual needs and expectations. 

The experienced Rees Hotel Queenstown team also offer additional services and facilities which include in-villa spa treatments, personal shopping and provisioning of villas, personal trainers, jet boat transfers, and much, much more. Guests can start the day with a gourmet breakfast including house-made bread and muesli, fresh pastries, local spreads, and artisan meats and cheeses. But for food-lovers, that’s just the start of an exceptional gastronomical experience. 

Executive Chef, Ben Batterbury and his True South team are on-hand to spoil guests with a private dining experience like no other. A specially designed menu, including freshly caught fish, local venison, lamb or pork can be arranged, while The Rees Hotel’s Resident Sommelier is on-hand to match the perfect wines to complement the menu.  

The True South team will prepare meals in the comfort of The Rees Residence villas, giving guests the chance to take in the incredible lakefront views, while enjoying a selection of wines from The Rees Hotel’s exceptional Bordeau Wine Cellar. It’s an experience so indulgent and luxurious, guests will find it hard to leave. But of course, when they do, the plentiful attractions of Queenstown and the unforgettable alpine vistas of Central Otago await.
