Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Rees Hotel & Luxury Apartments has a postcard-perfect setting by Lake Wakatipu, not far from Queenstown.

Rooms at The Rees Hotel & Luxury Apartments

The stylish and contemporary rooms and one to three-bedroom apartments have comfortable king-sized Rees beds, spacious Italian-designed bathrooms with underfloor heating and large tiled balconies that look out onto some of New Zealand's most beautiful scenery, including Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkable Mountains. The apartments have separate lounges with cosy gas fireplaces and fully-equipped kitchens.

Food & Drink

Expect delicious dishes that celebrate the region’s finest produce at the restaurant, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a better wine selection than here - try everything from Central Otago’s finest reds to Bordeaux’s best offerings at the hotel’s very own wine lounge.


If you’re not cycling around on one of the hotel’s mountain bike fleet or taking off from the private jetty, borrow a book from the library’s rare book collection, and revitalise your senses with a hot stone body wrap in your room, before stargazing at the hotel’s observatory.

Activities at The Rees Hotel & Luxury Apartments

The bustling centre of Queenstown, with its numerous shops and restaurants, can be easily reached via a short five-minute journey on the hotel's complimentary shuttle, or a scenic lakeside stroll.

The hotel is an ideal base for indulging in the wide range of high quality, year-round attractions and activities offered by Queenstown and the stunning surrounding area, from bungee jumping to scenic flights. If you fancy some skiing, the Coronet Peak ski field is a 30-minute drive away.
