Experience Luxury in Queenstown with The Rees

Experience Luxury in Queenstown with The Rees
Live it up on your Queenstown holiday in the lap of lakeside luxury in one of the newly opened waterfront villas at the hotel awarded the best in New Zealand.

When your hotel has been judged the best – not just the best hotel in New Zealand, but also the country’s best hotel chef (Ben Batterbury) and the best tourism organisation in New Zealand and Australia – the management team is entitled to say, “Well, how do we top that?”

The Rees Hotel in Queenstown was joint winner of Best NZ Hotel and Best Hotel Chef at the 2017 HM Awards for Hotel and Accommodation Excellence. It also took out Best Tourism Organisation or Travel Product at the Australian Society of Travel Writers awards. Chief executive Mark Rose, who’s led the hotel since its opening in 2009, was already taking the establishment to the next level. It has just opened five luxury, waterfront villas.

The Rees Lakeside Residences are just a stone’s throw from the lake shore, in front of the main hotel building for seclusion and privacy. Each of the 164-square-metre, three-bedroom, three-bathroom, air-conditioned villas has lake and mountain views. The villas all have a full kitchen, lounge, dining area, laundry, and an outdoor terrace the villas. The downstairs terrace has a spa and all-weather sound system. Unlike any other hotel in New Zealand, the residences offer a ‘Luxury Travel Curator’ to ensure guests’ experience is designed to suit their needs and expectations.
