Had a great time stay at Kamana. Thus was our second time at Kamana and nothing have changed. We felt the warmth welcome and gave us a little treats when we entered our room.The staff was all amazing from the Reception, to the bar ,dining and others. We booked the Kamana Soak and it was very relaxing with a great view of Lake Wakatipu and Remarkable. Definitely, we will highly recommend Kamana to our friends. Thank you Kamana 😊

Nice view and infrastructure. However, Hospitality was poor and needs improvement. Have waited in the bar for 15 mins just to ask the bar man very nicely if I can have a ice tong and sadly he said none. He didn’t even suggest a spoon or something. Waisted 15 mins of my time.

Stayed here for two nights at the end of of a two week trip to the South Island. Needed some rest and relaxation and that’s what we got! We booked directly through their own website which included free breakfast over both days. Stayed in the Kamana King which was perfect for the two of us + included unallocated parking in front of the room. Bed was super comfy and we enjoyed the room and facilities in general. Didn’t eat at the restaurant but what we saw looked good. We did have several drinks at the bar both nights and we really enjoyed the staff who were very friendly and made us feel looked after and gave us recommendations based on our previous likes and dislikes. Best G+T I had in Queenstown and my husband thoroughly enjoyed the whiskey selection. Used the Kamana Soak tubs on our second day which was fantastic and only available to guests of the hotel at $100 an hour. We thought it was great value and the view was excellent! All in all great stay and would happily book again if we were to be in Queenstown again.

Kamana Lakehouse was so beautiful! My partner and I had such a relaxing experience during our stay. We booked the Tahuna Lakeview room and was blown away. We really loved the design and atmosphere of the whole place, and the views were amazing!! Everyone was so nice and very accommodating to all our needs, shout out to Ben at reception who checked us in/out and the bartender for all the drinks :) We were probably the only guests that spent nearly every night chilling past 12am in the lounge area by the fireplaces because we loved the vibe so much. We also booked for the Nest Kitchen course dinner and Kamana Soak spa, both experiences were amazing we no doubt will definitely book them again on our next stay. It was our first trip in a long time, and Kamana Lakehouse was the best place to wind down and enjoy our time in Queenstown :)

We stayed at Kamana Lakehouse for 4 nights and had an incredible experience! The views are beautiful, and the hot tub is a must. All the staff was very friendly and gave us great recommendations. Special kudos to Olivia and Fernanda.
