Such a beautiful place to stay. Views to die for, accommodation spacious, comfortable with all amenities. Anything else required is efficiently provided by the wonderful staff. We loved it so much we didn't want to go out so we had the room dining option twice. Such a relaxing stay between a busy travel itinerary. Will stay here again when we...

I don't typically write reviews, but I had to in this case. I've been fortunate to have been able to stay in a lot of pretty amazing hotels around the world, but this may be my absolute favorite. There are a lot of big reasons for that, but most especially it is all the little things they got right. The...

Deep pockets required for this hilltop luxury pad that affords dramatic views of the lake as you relax in your state of the art private villa.....a splurge? Yes, but worth it. The serenity of the place itself is priceless...the pampering staff that cannot seem to accommodate or do enough made us feel like royalty....indeed, the staff went over and above...

We have stayed in many (ultra) high-end hotels and resorts, but Azur is really the best we've seen in terms of service. Not the 24/7 butler-type of service as you see in Asian resorts -- instead Gavin and his team are all educated professionals who understand what you need as a guest and when. Those who complain in other posts...

The view from all the rooms and breakfast lounge is amazing. The staff is really friendly, anticipates your needs and desires and help you make an unforgettable experience of the trip. Breakfast is really good and French toast is recommended. Must go once in a lifetime.

This place was absolutely magical. From the time we stepped in, we had out of this world service. It felt like we were celebrities during our stay. They can arrange dinners at your favourite place, have it plated and served to you in the room. The location is breathtaking and it's definitely a romantic place - we want to go...

Azur lodge is just absolute perfection, we were just worn out and frustrated with our trip to NZ , no we're not ungrateful for our life, things happen. Azur lodge helped us revitalise, relax, and helped us see the beauty of Queenstown, our hosts in the lodge are just fabulous, unbelievably helpful, friendly lovely people.

Quick summary: Relaxed vibe featuring breathtaking views and accompanied by a superbly delightful staff. Located just outside of the town, this hidden gem is just waiting to be discovered. The NZ vibe is very laid back, and Azur embraces this by allowing nature to provide the entertainment while they handle the service. Azur does not have a restaurant on site,...

The views from the villas are 10/10 but its downhill from there. Room was clean and private but the beds and pillows were something you'd find in a cheap motel. Our toliet leaked and ran our whole stay so there is some maintenance needed for sure. The lodge does not cook dinner but can bring you to town or pick...

I was half inclined not to write a review as I didn't want anyone else to find out about this place. It starts as soon as you are picked up by one of the wonderful staff. Punctual, professional but still somehow laid back. The guys put us at ease and cannot do enough for us. On arrival we are shown...

Featuring a main lodge and nine identical 90sqm freestanding villas. Azur captures the best of both worlds; amazing views and a tranquil setting yet only 5 minutes from downtown Queenstown. ... more   less
