Wanaka Accommodation by Region

Wanaka Accommodation by Region

From rugged mountains and golden hill country to clear alpine lakes, the Wanaka region is one of the most diverse and physically beautiful on Earth.

Within the Lake Wanaka region there is a selection of places where you can stay and enjoy this scenery. Whether it's in a lodge in town on the lakeshore or a cabin tucked in the bush on the edge of Mt Aspiring National Park we have something to suit your preference. We also have a number of camping options available in these areas as well.

  •  Wanaka Central Nestled against a backdrop of the South Island's Southern Alps and with a pristine alpine lake at its doorstep, the township of Wanaka offers a stunning setting in which to enjoy the area. The town acts as a magnet for New Zealanders and international visitors alike who want to return to sample the delights of a range of activities, cafes, shops and restaurants. Most accommodation is within an easy walk of the restaurants and shops. Adventure operators will pick you up from your accommodation and if you want to explore further afield, hire a car or mountian bike.
  • Wanaka surrounds The surrounding countryside is the setting for some of the most private and stunning places to stay in the Lake Wanaka region. If you have a car then you can be 5 minutes from town yet have complete peace and privacy in a number of  luxury lodges and bed and breakfasts. Many offer in house dinner so you don't need to leave unless you wish to explore more of the area.
  • Hawea Lake Hawea has a stark beauty with 2,000 metre peaks rising straight out of the lake and is popular in summer with fishermen and holiday makers. The welcoming small village at its southern shore has a store and cafe perfectly situated to enjoy the magnificent views up the lake.
  • Cardrona Built over 140 years ago, the Cardrona Hotel is one of New Zealand's oldest and is full of character with an excellent restaurant. The Cardrona valley is also home to three of Lake Wanaka's ski areas, Cardrona Adventure Park and back country horse rides. The Crown Range Road is New Zealand's highest public highway and the shortest link between Wanaka and Queenstown.
  • Luggate Luggate is the home of New Zealand's venison and deer farming industries and a strong pioneering spirit prevails. The newly renovated historic Luggate Hotel is a welcoming place to stop off and enjoy a pint of the local brew and a bite to eat. Just past Luggate is the wood turning  gallery featuring a wide range of locally made artwork and furniture.
  • Makarora The last bastion before the rugged West Coast, this tiny township is the ideal stop-off to explore the surrounding alpine wilderness. Take a plane or helicopter into Siberia and jet boat out or do one of the many short walks through the native bush and discover the area's sawmilling history. Or tramp the Gillespie Pass Circuit, rated by locals as one of the best round trips in the park.
  • Albert Town Albert Town is located to the east of Wanaka. Until recently only a farming settlement, the population boom in this area has led to much new development. The confluence of the Clutha, Hawea and Cardrona Rivers is located here and there are a number of great walks and cycling tracks alongside all these rivers taking you to Luggate, Hawea and Wanaka. If you need some refreshment then stop off for an ice cream or a beer at the Albert Town Tavern.
  • Glendhu Bay Glendhu Bay is a small, picturesque settlement right on the shores of Lake Wanaka.  The bay has a motor camp, and is a short drive west from Wanaka, on the road to Treble Cone ski field and Mount Aspiring National Park. A new track links the bay to town and is great for walking and cycling. Nearby Cattle Flat is a popular rock climbing area and the Motutapu Valley is home to the Motutapu Icebreaker events every March.
