Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat, High Country Estate & Luxury Villa Collection

Five-Star Mount Cook Villa Retreat with Nightly Three-Course Dinner & Lake Pukaki Stargazing

Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat, High Country Estate & Luxury Villa Collection logo

Sitting pretty on the waters of Lake Pukaki — underneath the otherworldly Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve and surrounded by the majestic Ben Ohau Range — Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat, High Country Estate & Luxury Villa Collection takes you away from it all. Remote, unspoilt and wildly beautiful, the lack of light pollution makes this one of the best spots in the world for stargazing.

Offering one of the most arresting views over Aoraki Mt Cook in all of New Zealand, this serene five-star retreat is designed for serious unwinding. Just three self-contained private villas are scattered across the alpine estate, allowing for a maximum of 12 guests at any one time. Get cosy in a luxury villa with an open fireplace, melt away under the stars in your private lakeside hot tub and let the dedicated onsite chef wine and dine you. Discover unparalleled landscapes at your doorstep — lavender fields are within strolling distance, Tasman Glacier and Lake Tekapo are a 30-minute jaunt away, and you can reach Queenstown in less than three hours.

Your handpicked inclusions:

  • Craft gourmet breakfasts with daily provisions delivered to your villa
  • Savour nightly three-course dinner, served in your villa or the main lodge
  • Look to the skies in awe with a stargazing experience for two
  • Get hands-on with a one-time private cooking demonstration for two

  • Arrive to a welcome bottle of local wine in your villa
  • Complimentary use of onsite facilities, including mountain bikes, a tennis court and croquet
