The Rees Lakeside Residences

The Rees Residences have absolute lakefront position and their own gated access. The Residences offer all the privacy, character and charm of a home away from home, but also deliver the convenience, service and total peace of mind that comes with being part of a fully managed 5-star hotel.

The Rees Lakeside Residences are superbly positioned just a stone’s throw from the shores of beautiful Lake Wakatipu and are adjacent to but separate from the main hotel building, offering seclusion and privacy in a magical setting.

Accommodation features 3 bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, large living areas and 2 terraces with a hot tub overlooking Lake Wakatipu. There are only five of these luxurious lakeside residences, and truly nothing compares in Queenstown. Unlike any other hotel in New Zealand, The Rees Residences offer the services of your very own ‘Luxury Travel Curator’. The 24 hour personal travel curator will be available for your entire stay starting with your meet and greet on arrival for your exclusive in-villa check in service. Claiming winner of the 2019 Travellers Choice award explains why the addition of these private lakeside residences are the perfect mix to New Zealand’s leading hotel.
