Here we are, it seems, at the beginning of our story. A new hotel, created out of an existing hotel. Is our story really new? Have we not been here a while? We know the faces around us, the different colours of the lake, the falling autumn leaves, and the crisp snowy winters. We’re all too familiar with a sun-warmed face, a long evening with a fruity pinot noir, and the sight of paragliders on the horizon. We’ve long seen the Earnslaw chugging along the shore, and enjoyed walking the many tracks.
Our story is about Queenstown. It is about lakeside holidays and winter sports. It’s about keeping it real, slowing down, and stopping to talk to strangers. It’s about trying new things, great food, skis on snow and the water. It’s about bikes, beautiful walks and fireworks during Winter Festival. It’s about living in paradise every day.
But don’t let us tell you. We’ve had the privilege to gather up stories from some of the characters that make Queenstown what it is, as well as people who are part of our new story, the story of Kāmana Lake House. From entrepreneurs, to athletes to architects, we have curated this collection to inspire and delight you, and impart a sense of who we are. A place that is rare to find, yet difficult to forget.
