Edgewater lies right at the water’s edge of Lake Wanaka. It is the perfect destination for you to experience all that Central Otago’s seasons have to offer. Our long, hot summers fade slowly into beautiful autumn colours, before the clear mountain air promises snow and crisp winter days. As the snowfalls melt, spring returns with its lush, bright greens. At Edgewater we have genuine local knowledge that complements our inviting accommodation and enticing seasonal menu. Since Covid 19 has swept the world, we stringently follow NZ Government directives to be welcome guests safely. We are fortunate to be located within a park-like setting and we have no lifts. We can unlock the very best Wanaka experiences, tailored for you. Edgewater is a four star Qualmark graded property situated on the edge of Lake Wanaka. Come and touch the seasons at Edgewater.

Auckland, New Zealand277 contributions64 helpful votes
This was a lovely, clean, well-manicured place to stay. Well-located with amazing views over Lake Wanaka. We had a very comfortable and roomy two bedroom apartment with kitchenette. It suited our needs very well. Spa pools were well looked after and hot (!!). We did not use the sauna or tennis courts but they were well used and nicely kept. Bar was good. Resturant food was good but the manager (?) was brusque and unwelcoming. We felt like we were imposing. Others felt the same way too. Odd. Scones are a big thing here but they stop serving them at 1pm, which is really strange. They would have been the perfect afternoon tea or post-ski treat but no. Anyhow, aside from the strange restaurant experiences, I cannot fault the resort. Highly recommended for peace, family time, and a holiday any time of the year.

I recently popped in to the Edgewater for a coffee and a bite to eat with my family. Not only were the scones the best I’ve had in years, but the waitress we had “Maddie” was so friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The other staff members I dealt with when paying etc were great too. So nice to be in an environment where the staff working there seem happy, creating a lovely environment to relax in. We will be back for sure!

Lovely place to stay in wanaka so close to town and right on the lake, the facilities are good, nice and clean and staff are very helpful. I would highly recommend staying as a couple or a family as the rooms are great for both.

Mould on the bathroom ceiling snd in the tiles. I understand that some rooms have been updated, but ours hadn’t and should not have been almost $300 a night! The reception is nice and the location on the lake is stunning
