On New Zealand’s south island, in the heart of Central Otago, at the foot of the Southern Alps, lies Lake Wanaka, home of Edgewater Club. This bustling tourist destination is popular all year round. Two of the country’s best ski areas, Treble Cone and Cardrona, are a short drive away. Or take the breathtakingly beautiful helicopter ride from the helicopter pad. At these ski fields, both the expert and beginner will find what they are looking for. During summer days, water activities abound. From rafting and jet boating, to water skiing and trout fishing, Wanaka becomes a huge aquatic playground in summer.
Lake Wanaka is an enclosed paradise surrounded by towering mountains, native forestry and sparkling waters, and Edgewater Club takes in this breathtaking alpine vista.
The serene beauty of the area combined with the array of entertainment and dining options makes it an attractive and popular holiday destination for people of all ages.
Lake Wanaka is the gateway to the Mount Aspiring National Park, the 3rd largest park in the country. There are some great tramps and bushwalks through the park varying in intensity to suit all travellers.
There are a multitude of activities to enjoy including fly fishing, white water sledging, mountaineering, water skiing, wind surfing and much more. Tempt your taste buds at one of the local wineries or dine in style at one of restaurants or cafes.
Check out the Stuart Landsborough Puzzling World where you'll get lost amongst mazes, puzzles and holograms. You should also visit the New Zealand Fighter Pilots Museum which features a collection of WWII fighter aircraft.
At Edgewater Club landscaped gardens compliment spacious villas in natural wood, paved patios with lake and mountain views and contemporary decor and facilities stand the Club apart.
Whilst staying in the privacy of your own villa, you can enjoy the full facilities of the attached hotel. There are tennis, sauna, spa, watersports, fishing and hiking facilities adjacent to the resort - as well as golf, squash, horseback riding and skiing nearby.
Just a few steps away from your villa you can walk along the lake edge, enjoy superb dining in the restaurant at the adjacent Edgewater Hotel, or enjoy a game of tennis on the resort's full sized courts.
The Wanaka region allows you to try a wide variety of holiday experiences. You can opt for the more adventurous pursuits of bungee jumping, sky diving or going for a flight in an antique war plane, or you can try some wine tasting, or test your shooting skills at Have a Shot – a great activity on those days when you are stuck for something to do.
Edgewater Club offers guests access to one and two bedroom villas that can sleep between four and seven people. Each apartment is beautifully decorated and is fully self-contained with full kitchen including dishwasher, and laundry facilities including a dryer.
As a guest staying at Edgewater Club, you will have access to a range of bicycles to access cycle tracks around the lake and a selection of kayaks for gliding across its surface.
Summer, winter, autumn or spring, the choice is yours, stroll by the lakeside, indulge in your favourite recreation or just lie down and sunbathe.
