The Rees Hotel puts luxury on the lake in Queenstown, New Zealand, making it the choice for celebrities and high-end travellers. The independent hotel prides itself on excellent service and offers a mix of apartments and suites with magnificent views.
Thanks to the concierge team here are a couple of adventures and best local experiences to think about on your next trip to New Zealand.
Try paragliding from Coronet Peak – the thrills are only surpassed by the views you’ll have of Queenstown. Perhaps the leap of your life and bungy jump with AJ Hackett Bungy: jump, swing, catapult or zip ride to your favourite tune for adrenaline thrillseekers only and relive the memory and bragging rights on social media forever! Or get wet Jetboating with Shotover Jet.
Bring the family to meet the newborn spring farm animals on a tour of Walter Peak Farm; Fish the Arrow River and dream of the catching that big one. Perhaps walk from your apartment at The Rees Hotel around the beautiful shores of Lake Wakatipu to stroll in Queenstown Gardens to admire the spring blooms and on into town for some retail therapy before catching the regular complimentary shuttle back to The Rees for some well-deserved relaxation
December Summer Indulgences
The Rees Hotel holds regular exclusive and intimate culinary events, matching local wines (and meet the winemakers) to Chef Corey Hume’s award-winning menus at the hotel’s True South Dining Room. Or take flight on a Heli-Wine Tour of the region’s wineries and a tipple at historic Cardona pub.
January Summer Daze
Fancy a round of golf? There are seven challenging and scenically gorgeous courses to try within a 45-minute drive. Or frisbee golf is a great alternative for those less serious. Cycle the vines in Gibbston with return transfers to The Rees for you and your cycles, or a half-day “Bike the Bridges” tour. The family will love an easy ride Beach to the Bay.
February is loved-up
A heli- proposal or wedding will take your love to new heights. The Rees can arrange a romantic setting for the proposal or the whole wedding from start to finish with accommodation and venue for the reception to suit any size event, in the spectacular setting of Queenstown. For the lighter side of love: Onsen hot pools, couples spa treatments, a heli-picnic for two, a walk, hike or bike ride, wine-tasting, gourmet dining or simply bunker down for some time alone in the luxury of your apartment with every comfort and those awesome views.
