Sleep on the lake’s surface
You can listen to the lapping of Lake Wakatipu from bed in every waterfront room at Eichardt’s Private Hotel. But a night on the property’s eight-berth luxury yacht Pacific Jemm takes you straight to the source. From the Jemm’s bow, watch steamer TSS Earnslaw puff towards Glenorchy or settle at the stern to witness The Remarkables turn violet at dusk as Queenstown’s lights flicker on in the foreground. The glamorous Italian-built floating suite remains docked at O’Regan’s Wharf so you can come and go as you please before retiring below deck to the king-sized stateroom, where the lake will gently rock you to sleep.
