Whare Kea

With an ideal combination of shared and private spaces, Whare Kea is well suited to accommodate small groups, whether you prefer rest & relaxation or want to experience Wanaka's myriad of outdoor pursuits.


Strikingly designed in timber and glass, Whare Kea appears to float on the edge of Lake Wanaka against the dramatic backdrop of the Southern Alps. This award-winning lodge has been transformed into an exclusive use villa offering a private retreat for up to 12 guests. With its light-filled interior and spectacular vistas, Whare Kea provides perfect luxury accommodation for families or groups of friends wishing to soak up the splendour of the area in a private location.

The fully equipped kitchen allows guests to self-cater whilst looking out at the stunning vistas over Lake Wanaka. Alternatively, you may choose to dine out in one of Wanaka’s growing number of restaurants or allow one of their professional chefs to do all of the hard work for you whatever your culinary needs may be. Additional services to compliment your stay are extensive and unlimited to tailor-make a unique exclusive retreat. Minimum stay is 3 nights.

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!"
