Whether you're cosying up by your gas fireplace or relaxing in your terrace spa, spectacular vistas of Lake Wakatipu will greet you at every turn from the five-star The Carlin Boutique Hotel. Much more than just a gateway to adventure-capital Queenstown and surrounding wine region, this hillside refuge promises exquisite attention to detail and sophistication. After days of exploration, feast on local produce at ORO restaurant, book an in-suite spa treatment (charges apply), or simply sit back with a glass of wine and drink in the views.
