  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Banya – thanks for turning the wonderful weather on for us so we could sit on those decks and take in the fabulous views in the sunshine! The Banya is almost perfect for a couple for a long weekend. Lovely setting, lovely interiors and we felt very well looked after by the Release Wanaka team"

What our customers say

  • "Lodge Rooms at Whare Kea boast the most amazing views out to the lake or snow capped mountains in the beautiful Wanaka region. Each room also has direct access to the sundeck outside with sun loungers and access out to the lovely gardens. The food here is utterly sublime - their chef is so proud of the ingredients he manages to source locally and will invite you into the kitchen to chat about your supper!"
