Vacations & Travel - - From the Editor-in-chief -


Many ho­tels prom­ise a stel­lar lo­ca­tion and spec­tac­u­lar sur­round­ings and oth­ers the pam­per­ing of spa­cious suites with de­signer fur­nish­ings and fab­rics. Still oth­ers hang their rep­u­ta­tion on ser­vice – or per­haps an awarded din­ing room, top chef or fine wine cel­lar.

Some bou­tique prop­er­ties pride them­selves on fea­tur­ing a unique as­pect such as their his­toric or artis­tic fo­cus but very few fine ho­tels can boast all of these and fewer still man­age to ex­ceed guests’ ex­pec­ta­tions in each of these claims.

The Rees Hotel Queenstown is such a prop­erty and con­tin­ues to win awards and ac­co­lades around the world for its suc­cess, in­clud­ing be­ing named the joint win­ner of Best New Zealand Hotel and Best Hotel Chef at the pres­ti­gious 2017 HM Awards held in Syd­ney re­cently.

Lo­cated on the edge of Lake Wakatipu, look­ing out to The Re­mark­ables and just min­utes from the scenic Queenstown centre, the moun­tain back­drop and lake views are ever-chang­ing and al­ways mes­meris­ing.

The Rees Hotel is cen­tral to the wide range of high-qual­ity, year-round at­trac­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties of­fered by Queenstown and the broader South­ern Lakes District. The Rees of­fers a free shut­tle ser­vice from the hotel to the down­town area of Queenstown and water taxi ser­vices, fish­ing char­ters and jet boat com­pa­nies utilise The Rees Wharf to look after the needs of guests.

Ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions in­clude 60 spa­cious hotel-style rooms and 90 lux­ury apart­ments, all with bal­conies over­look­ing the mag­nif­i­cent lake and moun­tains. Ar­chi­tec­ture and fur­ni­ture de­signs were pro­vided by local ar­ti­sans of in­ter­na­tional renown and the his­tory of Queenstown’s early set­tler and de­vel­oper, Wil­liam Rees, is en­shrined in the valu­able li­brary and art avail­able for guests to pe­ruse as they sip the best of Cen­tral Otago wines and Bordeaux vin­tages from the mas­ter­fully stocked wine cel­lar. The Rees also of­fers in­cred­i­ble Culi­nary Se­ries events.

The hotel now provides all local calls and over 200 on-de­mand in-room movies, as well as com­pli­men­tary Sky (cable) chan­nels, as well as the free high-speed Wi-Fi and free un­der­cover car park­ing.

In late 2017, The Rees will open five su­perla­tive Lake Front Res­i­dences on stun­ning Lake Wakatipu to pro­vide an even more lux­u­ri­ous option for the dis­cern­ing few.
