Eichardt’s Private Hotel

Eichardt's Private Hotel occupies a magnificent location on the shores of Lake Whakatipu. A historic building dating back to 1859, this boutique hotel combines original features, open fires and antique furniture with chic interior design and contemporary touches.

Each of the five lodge suites have balconies making the most of the lake and mountain views. Alternatively, stay in one of the lakefront apartment suites or the penthouse with large terrace areas and sweeping panoramic views. Take a stroll to the lakeside beach, visit the award-winning bar for evening cocktails or organise a spa treatment in your suite.
