Matakauri Lodge, Queenstown, New Zealand
Get up early at Matakauri Lodge and head to the gym for sunrise. The fitness centre overlooks the hotel’s infinity pool, which in turn overlooks Queenstown's Lake Wakatipu and the snow-capped Remarkables mountains – you will never have a better view from a treadmill! During the cooler months, enjoy pre-dinner drinks in front of the outdoor fireplace on the lawn before moving into the dining room for dinner. The meals are expertly curated and use some of the finest ingredients in New Zealand.
