Travel Tuesday

HONEYMOON AT MATAKAURI LODGE


We spent two weeks in Australia and New Zealand for our Honeymon.

One of the highlights of our honeymoon was going to Queenstown, New Zealand and staying at the Matakauri Lodge.  Queenstown is such a special place, the natural beauty of the mountains, lakes and terrain cannot be described in words, and pictures can't truly capture how breathtakingly beautiful Queenstown and the Matakauri Lodge really are...but I will try and show you why it was such a special place for us.


The Matakauri Lodge is set overlooking a lake with a backdrop of mountains, once you enter the property you have no choice but to relax and take it all in.  

The main lodge and the individual cabins are all suspended over the lake with floor to ceiling glass walls making you feel like the view is slapping you in the face and trying to wake you up...but it is not a dream, it is the most fabulous reality!




The landscape and the design are spectacular...I spy boxwood in the above pictures!



Breakfast and Dinner is included in the rate as well as a cocktail hour with horderves, where you can meet and great the other guests.  We met wonderful people and made many friends, I even came back with a pen pal from Saudi!  We would have cocktails by the fire above or if weather permitted outside by the fire in the picture below.




As you can see from the picture above it was not relaxing at all!



After drinks we had two rooms to chose from to dine in, we always chose one of the tables above because it truly was the best view in the house.  The menu was always a three or four course menu with an a la carte option as well.  The food here is no joke, some of the best meals I have ever had...you will not go hungry!  There are also fresh cookies and brownies in your room that they refresh throughout the day and they are like crack!  All the guests were talking about how they are impossible to stay away from!


The rooms at Matakauri Lodge are fresh and modern but very cozy at the same time.  The guest rooms all have same breathtaking view of the lake and mountains in each suite.


Perfect spot to read relax and read a book.


Look at this view from the bath tub!

The Matakauri Lodge is so beautiful and accommodating that you wont want to even leave your room or venture off the property, but trust me, you do not want to miss all that Queenstown has to offer!

Queesnstown is dubbed the adventure capital of the world, there is bungee jumping, parasailing, hiking and if you are not the adventure type, there is still plenty to do like wine tasting and shopping!  


One of the highlights of our trip and a must do is to take a helicopter ride and landing on Milford sound, then making a stop on the rocky beach of the Tasman Sea and then landing on a Glacier!  


The above picture is pretty bad but I wanted you to see the amazing view!

Stay tuned for a guide to Queesntown, New Zealand and my favorite things to do and places to go!

  10. The game Friv2games helps you good at games without going to any training classes.
    Children usually like the hobbies of adults because they like freedom and don't want to be managed by anyone. It is the same for games; Friv 2000 Games children always find out powerful games so that they can complete themselves and have new experiences with games. The motor race is given as an example, most of the children are fond of this game and the rough race roads, lots of obstacles, sudden situations make children interested in conquering the game. This type of game helps children better at surveying when they take part in traffic, it also helps them flexible and handle the situations well in their life. Friv 2000 It is true that the game is widespread without any restrictions. Players have the right to control motor and motor race when participating in race in their computer.
