Kamana Lakehouse

Kamana Lakehouse is a high-altitude boutique hotel overlooking The Remarkables mountain range, just 5 minutes from the town centre of Queenstown. This is an inspiring place of elegant comfort, and the perfect setting to immerse yourself in iconic views.

The interior design is inspired by the Kāmana bird and its natural habitat. The Australasian Crested Grebe or Kāmana (its Maori name) is a diving bird native to New Zealand’s southern lakes region including Queenstown. A rare and elegant presence on the Otago lakes, it is regarded as a treasure by locals.

Located high above Wakatipu Lake with what could possibly be the best views of any hotel accommodation around, Kamana Lakehouse has captured the essence of Queenstown. Breakfast is served daily with a selection of a-la-carte creations and dinner is built around flavours of the Mediterranean using the best of New Zealand ingredients.

If you want to make the best of the breath-taking views, then the Tahuna Lake View Room is the room for you. Wall to wall windows make the most of the views out to Lake Wakatipu and the picturesque Remarkables mountain range. With luxury top of the line bedding in each room, snuggle up for a great night’s sleep, and awake the next day with the beauty of Queenstown before you. After a day on the ski slopes or visiting local wineries and attractions, come together of an evening with a drink by the fire before enjoying dinner at the highest alfresco restaurant in town.
