Years of meticulous planning are paying off as Central Otago’s most exciting luxury offering, Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa, begins the final countdown towards opening its doors; marked by the launch of a new website and online booking portal.
Located at the heart of Central Otago’s founding winery, only 20 minutes from Queenstown Airport, Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa will offer “the ultimate in relaxed luxury, fine wine, culinary excellence and five-star personal service”.
Twenty-four well-appointed private villas will look out onto working organic vineyards and the schist mountains of Gibbston. However, this is far more than just a place to stay. “One-of-a-kind luxury packages and experiences will allow guests to immerse themselves in the rural playground that is Gibbston – creating memories that are perfectly tailored to them”.
“Perhaps your perfect day is exploring our 1000-acre Gibbston Valley Station, on foot or by bike, before sipping a glass of award-winning Pinot Noir by the Lodge fireplace,” says Greg Hunt, Gibbston Valley CEO. “Or maybe your ideal day will involve indulging in a personalized ‘vinotherapy’ spa treatment, followed by a glass of sparkling wine in the Central Otago sun.
“What we think will be particularly appealing to our guests will be the Essential Wine Experience offering. This exclusive package will be the pinnacle in wine indulgence, including a premium winery, vineyard and cave tour, a private wine tasting with the winemaker in our Lodge Cellar, and lunch crafted by Head Chef, Anthony Gradiska.
“We hope that our guests will leave with a new found appreciation for Central Otago wine and food,” adds Greg. “It is now widely regarded as being amongst the best in the world, and we believe that is because we treat our natural surroundings with the utmost patience and respect. We look forward to sharing our knowledge and love for the region and giving our guests fantastic memories that will last them a lifetime.”
