Queenstown in New Zealand is a place where the possibility of heart-pumping adventure is endless, and The Rees Hotel is the perfect location to base yourself.

On the other side of the coin, if you're looking for a great place to wind down and relax, this is the ideal indulgence where you can enjoy wine at the comfortable Bordeaux wine lounge or head over to the hotel’s observatory.
