Romantic Experiences in Queenstown

We all know that there are dozens of activities to do and adventures to be had in Queenstown. For the sake of your romantic getaway these are our personal recommendations for an exceptional Experience over a long weekend, or a week, interspersed with a few days to explore the centre of Queenstown, the historic Arrowtown, or a quiet day trip out to Glenorchy.

Private Scenic Flight + Cruise to Milford Sound 

A private scenic flight to Milford Sound considered the 8th wonder of the world, coupled with a cruise
Fiordland National Park is simply stunning and a beautiful portrayal of NZ’s ‘Pure NZ’ image. Silent calm fiords teaming with mastic wildlife, embraced by imposing mountains with cascading waterfalls. A spectacular day out!

Hot Air Ballooning Over the Wakatipu at Sunrise

If romance is what you’re after, then a sunrise balloon ride over the Wakatipu as the sun rises over The Remarkables, ticks all the boxes. Peaceful, experiential and memorable - hover over golden mountains and sparkling lakes…

A Personalised Private Vineyard Tour of Gibbston Valley

Gibbston Valley is a highlight of any trip south with outstanding red wines and a strong emerging brewery movement. Make your trip a private one with a personalised guide and enjoy a relaxed day with fine wine, garden-to-plate meals, privacy and safe but luxurious transport there and back!

A Private Helicopter Flight with a Scenic Picnic at the top of Walter Peak, Paradise Valley or Glenorchy 

Taking to the skis seems to be a theme in this post, but in terms of experiences, taking a chopper up to a local peak for a romantic picnic is seriously on the top of our lists - and if you’re thinking about asking the big commitment question, then there aren’t many better, more memorable locations to do in the whole of New Zealand!

A Private Spa at Olson Hot Pools

Perched on a cliff overlooking the picturesque Shotover River, book a private spa for some serious romantic relaxing time. Your relaxation time can be combined with refreshments or a face/body treatment at their spa - an excellent finish to your day

A Couples Massage

Why not? There are lots of options for a couples massage in Queenstown, designed around rest and relaxation. it's about having a shared experience in a location that is simply spectacular. We suggest getting in touch with our reservations crew, or pop down to the front desk and ask for more details - there really are many options and we’d want to help you choose exactly the right one!

Lunch at Akarua Wines & Kitchen by Artisan

A converted historical wooden villa, on the road to Arrowtown near the shoreline of Lake Hayes, provides a comfortable, memorable and intimate setting for a master class in sumptuous dining and wine tasting. This is one of our all-time favourites for a truly upmarket, memorable and local dining experience.

Dinner / Lunch at Amisfield

And for dinner (or a long lunch), we beg you to consider an extended meal at Amisfield Winery, again not far from the shores of Lake Hayes on your way out to Arrowtown. We’ll help you organise a taxi, as you’ll want to take advantage of some spectacular wines, paired with simply scrumptious dishes. In winter ask to be seated by the roaring brick fireplace and in summer, outside around the pond. Even ask to be served picnic style out by the vines - for a truly romantic meal! We recommend the chef’s choice gustation menu - a local favourite (and the rosè, a personal favourite)


Any and all of these fabulous romantic experiences are bookable through a friendly staff down in the reception area, or over the phone.  We are happy to help you any way we can, and remember, let us know if your visit is of the romantic kind so we can help you make it the most memorable holiday and stay imaginable!
