Property Waiora

Proving that wellness can be a way of life, Waimrino Lodge has created Waiora, a luxury residence overlooking Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown. Designed to foster optimal wellbeing through sustainable building practices, holistic health and fitness facilities, and an immersive natural environment, Waiora is a luxurious home that marks the zenith of wellness in architecture.

Modern life has taught us the importance of home. A living environment that fosters and inspires a healthy lifestyle can make all the difference to our physical wellbeing, and surrounding ourselves with natural beauty is the key to emotional balance. Currently in development, Waiora takes a holistic approach to wellness. Designed using green construction techniques, the home uses natural materials to ensure the interior environment is as healthy as possible. Facilities for yoga, gym and body care practices, such as saunas, plunge pool and spa, are integrated into this luscious setting overlooking Lake Wakatipu, just eight minutes from Queenstown’s CBD.

The sloping site allows uninterrupted views of the glittering lake and breathtaking vistas of Cecil Peak and the surrounding mountain ranges. On a parcel of land that spans over 13,590 square meres, the property is surprisingly close to the many celebrated restaurants and retail stores of Queenstown. Known as the adventure capital of the world, this alpine town offers a plethora of activities, from skiing and snowboarding to on-water and off-road adventures. However, its lesser-known charm is its quieter activities: copious walking, cycling and hiking paths follow rivers, mountain and wine trails through the area. The air is some of the cleanest in the world, and being able to live among this scenery brings true health-giving happiness.
