By the age of 7, he’d already flown on the Concorde from Paris to Rio for New Year’s Eve and walked the beaches of Phuket, Thailand.

Lake Life at Matakauri Lodge
Matakauri Lodge
There is something about a lakeside vacation that speaks to all of us. Gently lapping waves, a surface so calm it reflects the breath taking scenery at its edge, and a golden silence in the twilight. What are you waiting for? Take your seat at the edge of Lake Wakatipu.

Opened in late 2010, Matakauri Lodge is one hell of a luxurious escape. Privately owned, and a member of the Relais & Châteaux property group, it is nestled on the edge of Lake Wakatipu, a few kilometres outside of Queenstown.
