Historic vineyard opens boutique lodge and dedicated spa

Guests can expect fine hospitality in a romantic setting at Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa.

Surrounded by vineyards in historic pinot noir country, Central Otago’s newest boutique accommodation offers a romantic luxury experience for discerning travellers.

Guests will “truly feel welcome and taken care of, thanks to unexpected touches of indulgence and our personal concierge service," says CEO Greg Hunt. "All while enjoying fine wine and food, which is at the heart of what we offer, with the spectacular Central Otago landscape as the backdrop.”

Just a short drive from Queenstown, the 24 premium villas overlook the historic Le Maitre vineyard block, with views of the vines and the distinctive hills.

A secluded on-site spa offers a full range of treatments, from vinotherapy to a revitalising soak in a hot pool.

Customised concierge services provide local knowledge on wine tasting, cycle tours, walking tracks and packages for activities on site and throughout the wider region.

Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa is set on 1000 acres of privately owned land, dotted with biking and walking trails. The Queenstown Trail, one of New Zealand’s Great Rides, passes the property and provides access to over 130 km of off-road trails between Gibbston, Arrowtown and Queenstown.
