Located on the shores of Queenstown’s Lake Wakatipu, pre-eminent Eichardt’s Private Hotel will unveil its stunning $10,000 NZD per night penthouse extension in late 2016.

The 240sqm penthouse suite (plus 100sqm rooftop terrace) boasts a commercial grade kitchen (primed for private chef usage), a sauna, spa and even a powder room with unobstructed views across the picture-perfect lake. The suite joins an award-winning assortment of offerings from the hotelier, including Eichardt’s Lakefront Apartments, Eichardt’s Private Hotel and the Eichardt’s Residence.

Guests of the penthouse can enjoy an immersive luxury offer that includes Krug Champagne refreshed daily, a Land Rover and driver on call throughout the visit, pre-dinner cocktail amenity complete with whiskey bar, private dining options and a hosted after hours one-on-one Louis Vuitton shopping experience in the label’s store just downstairs.

The new accommodation interiors perfectly meld the old world with the modern edge of the expansion featuring an exterior of local Oamaru stone and exposed steel.

Linking internally with the original Eichardt’s, guests can discreetly enter the famous bar and private parlour and sip on the region’s finest pinot noir or expand their cocktail horizons amongst the snowy peaks and nature beyond.

Enjoying the locally foraged and sourced tastes of New Zealand on the tapas menu of executive chef Will Eaglesfield is likewise, a rite of passage.  Visitors are well-versed to try the chowder we hear.

Eichardt’s Private Hotel accommodation rates start from $1,250 per night.  Eichardt’s Penthouse rates are POA. For more information, please visit
