Stunning luxury Twizel accommodation looking out to Southern Alps

On arrival at Matuka Lodge you will be greeted by the Matuka Lodge owners and your hosts, Peter and Jo Johnstone, with an aperitif and shown you to your room. Guests enjoy the privacy of the Lodge to themselves in the evenings when your hosts retire to the mangers residence. Included in your Matuka Lodge experience is a complimentary full breakfast featuring fresh local produce prepared by your hosts and served in-room or in the dining area.

Whether you visit Matuka Lodge in the height of summer or the cold heart of winter, we guarantee you'll be delightfully comfortable.

During the summer, the Lodge is cool and airy with a pleasant breeze coming off the trout pond. There really is nothing on this earth as relaxing as sitting on your deck with a glass of wine watching the sun set over the Lake with Southern Alps looking on.

In the winter, the Lodge takes advantage of its north-facing aspect to extract as much heat as possible from the sun. This, coupled with full double glazing throughout and more insulation than you can imagine, keeps our guests snug and comfortable at night.

Decorated with antique and contemporary furniture, and original artworks, the atmosphere is elegant, yet casual.

Matuka Luxury Lodge provides complete privacy as the owners live next door. The Lodge is yours to enjoy with every comfort to ensure your stay is memorable.
