Wanaka Lakehouse, Wanaka, New Zealand

Accommodation Type: Lodge
Number of rooms: 4

Imagine the ambience … of a hand carved timber interior sumptuously furnished with antiques, leather, Persian rugs and art originals, all in the same room as a 5 tonne rock fireplace / pizza oven AND a stunningly beautiful heated swimming pool; emerald tiled and chemical free with strong swim jets for training and ideally designed to be child safe. Our first priority in the design and construction here was to build a lodge that would very positively & scientifically support health. This was achieved by strictly following “building biology” principles using design, materials, location, aesthetics and comfort. Wanaka Lakehouse could truly be called chemical-free & we have used shielded electrical wiring to reduce the effects of electro-magnetic fields throughout the lodge for a relaxing stay & your “best sleep ever”… especially so with our “Purist” latex mattresses, fine cotton sheets & woollen duvets. Thus Wanaka Lakehouse is a dream environment for sensitised individuals & allergy sufferers & actually… for everyone. Wanaka Lakehouse is a model of healthy & sustainable building and innovation. Our indoor pool is a standout feature of the above as, being chemical free, it can be opened to the whole indoor environment so that all energy used to heat the pool actually heats the lodge. And it is heated for a good 50% of the year by a large array of solar panels. It is the most beautiful 28 tonne, 28 degree, year-round, ambient heat source that you will just love!! Thus through design power is conserved.
