With an emphasis on environmentally sustainable practices, this picturesque mountain-side hotel has been Earthcheck accredited as well as Qualmark Green EnviroGold certified. Energy efficient lamps highlight the nature-friendly atmosphere around the resort exterior, lounges and hotel rooms. Wooden furnishings and a autumn-hued theme in these areas are creatively contrasted with modern renovation features in meeting rooms and dining areas. These include recessed ceiling lights and expansive windows that maximize daylight illumination and accentuate the spectacular backdrop of lakes and snowy mountains. It comes as no surprise that this two time New Zealand Hotel of the Year indulges both nature-loving travelers and business expats alike.
