There are few, if any, places quite like this in the world. Private, luxury lodge accommodation set in a remote glacial valley surrounded by towering peaks, accessible only by helicopter. Comfortable in every sense, with warm hospitality and world class cuisine, Minaret Station Alpine Lodge is truly an extraordinary location to escape the “real world”.
Without road access, getting to Minaret Station Alpine Lodge is part of the experience.
Accessible only by helicopter, we offer daily departures flying from our Queenstown and Wanaka heliports. This is not your normal hotel transfer. Flying through spectacular mountain valleys, over snow-capped peaks and across braided alpine rivers, the journey into Minaret Station is up there amongst some of the world’s finest scenic flights. And this we call a transfer!
Our guests enjoy privacy and comfort surrounded by tasteful high-country design. Each of the four chalets feature a king-sized bed (or twin), ensuite bathroom, hot tub, and private deck where guests can relax and unwind beneath the stars.Start Planning +
They pride themselves on knowing where their food is sourced and how it has been nurtured. Chefs use only the freshest local ingredients from Central Otago’s basin. In fact, the free range venison, Lumina Lamb and Angus Beef we use are all sourced from Minaret Station’s own 50,000 acre working farm. Seafood is fresh from Stewart Island, the West Coast and Fiordland. Our beautiful produce is provided by passionate local growers.View Resort Suites +
