For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa set to open in December

Central Otago’s newest luxury property, Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa, is counting down to its opening in December. Located in the heart of Central Otago’s founding winery, the lodge will offer the ultimate in relaxed luxury, fine wine, culinary excellence and five-star personal service.

In approximately two months, its doors will swing open to reveal a stunning lodge complete with striking feature fireplace, soaring ceiling, sun-filled conservatory, alfresco dining area, an exclusive restaurant and a Lodge Cellar overflowing with historic vintages.

The world-class luxury accommodation also boasts a beautiful exterior accompanied by lush landscaping and peaceful water features.

Nestled above the first vineyard block ever planted in the valley, 24 modern villas provide a perfect view of the vines over to the rolling hills distinctive of Central Otago.

Each villa also boasts a modern, sophisticated décor, open plan indoor living space and the latest technology as well as a secluded sun-washed courtyard surrounded by lush landscaping and a private covered deck with dining area.

The secluded on-site spa offers a luxurious retreat for health, beauty and wellbeing with a range of indulgences including vinotherapy treatments.

Another highlight of the Lodge experience is the opportunity to sample exquisite cuisine, carefully created to pair beautifully with premium, handcrafted Gibbston Valley Wines.

The exclusive Lodge menu is the brainchild of renowned Chef Anthony Gradiska, guided by the seasons and fresh produce grown in his Chef’s Gardens scattered around the Lodge and Spa buildings.

Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa is also set to have a distinct sustainability focus, going to great efforts to do away with single-use products and introducing eco-conscious options throughout the entire operation.

Additional Lodge features include a small wine education theatre, private meeting rooms and unique indoor and outdoor spaces for intimate boutique weddings.
