Perfect; just what was needed!
A truly restorative weekend away. Outstanding food (faultless), beautiful lodge and chalet accommodations, welcoming staff. As Queenstown locals, we are aware of the options available in the area for this standard of excellence and luxury lodging, and are so glad we chose Blanket Bay. We extended our stay while there and wished we could have stayed longer.
Great way to relax
Blanket Bay is a beautiful property on the side of the lake. The staff are excellent, the food wonderful and I have to especially mention the cocktail waiter who make the most delicious cocktails each evening before dinner. We were upgrade to a lovely lodge suite, the room was very big, with a lovely big bathrooms (including a steam shower) , a really comfortable bed and beautiful big views. The have a lovely spa with a hot tub which opens up to views of the property and lake. There are lots of beautiful walks in the area to do each day, and the staff know them all well and can offer advice. This is just a 40 minute drive from Queenstown airport.
Aaaah, so great we stayed an extra night
Luxury accommodation like this can become quite passe', but everything about this Lodge is fresh, exiting, and just damn invigorating. We loved it, the locality sets the tone, and our stay simply became better and better. A huge thankyou to our hosts, Tom and Pauline, and their exceptional staff. Naomi and I will definitely return.
INCREDIBLE LUXURY EXPERIENCE
We had an amazing time at Blanket Bay and it was everything we had hoped it would be. Every one of the staff were amazing, the food was spectacular (especially the scallops, kingfish, venison and the incredible apple crumble!!) and so were the drinks (Enrique is a magician with cocktails!!). The setting is stunning and everything was perfect. It was also great to meet all of the superb staff, the manager and the owners. The whole experience is very personalised and that helped to make it a truly memorable weekend. I I cannot say enough good things about Blanket Bay and recommend it strongly enough - it really is spectacular. Thank you for following up and please pass on our thanks to every one of the staff at Blanket Bay, all of whom do an amazing job. Matt Hemens
When you rewind your life and look at the highs, I will always have Blanket Bay in that list. God was on form the day this was done. The staff are wonderful, attentive but never in your face, The food is sublime. The rooms are stunning. The location is heaven. It changes all the time and in minutes but it never fails to deliver. If you get a chance to helicopter to Milford Sound - take it!! We were lucky enough to meet the owners who are just the loveliest couple and so proud of their lodge and the wonderful staff and rightly so. I hope, one day, to be lucky enough to return. I already feel blessed that we were able to stay here.
