Sargoods, Edgewater’s dedicated breakfast lounge, is the place to fuel up for a day of exploration and excitement. The Wineglass Café is the choice for lunches on the terrace and intimate dinners under the vaulted ceilings and in front of a roaring log fire. Don’t miss the legendary Wineglass scones – cooked to order and the perfect accompaniment to a relaxing afternoon taking in the beauty of the lake and the high peaks.



The hotel has plenty to offer the more energetic guest with on-site mountain bike hire and two all-weather tennis courts within the beautiful grounds. Guests can enjoy a game of petanque or simply relax in the spa pools and sauna.

Edgewater is also within easy reach of a quite astounding array of top quality local attractions – from skiing and jet boating to wine tours and lake cruises.



The Element Day Spa offers a range of treatments and therapies designed to re-balance the body and mind and is the perfect antidote to the adventure on offer elsewhere. Guests can of course choose to simply relax on the Wineglass terrace with a glass of excellent local wine and views of Lake Wanaka and the surrounding mountains.


The flexible accommodation and dedicated children’s playground make Edgewater a great option for families taking to the slopes in the winter or enjoying the spectacular summer attractions of Lake Wanaka.


Getting There

Arrival Airport

Christchurch International Airport


Approximately 1 hour from Queenstown Airport


There isn't a bad time to visit the South Island. The summer months (December to February) boast the best weather, while the cooler spring (September to November) and autumn (March to May) seasons are the ideal time to enjoy lots of the activities on offer. In the winter (June to August) head south to Queenstown hills for skiing and snowboarding.
