Matakauri Lodge in New Zealand

With winter on its way, water lovers now have something besides pools to look forward to: hot tubs. The Matakauri Lodge in New Zealand is an alpine cedar-and-schist lodge that is located in native bush on the edge of the Lake Wakatipu near Queenstown. They have floor-to-ceiling glass doors that lift to expose the simple, cedar-timber hot tub to the elements—which are the gardens and views of the Remarkables Mountains. Not only is the hot tub amazing at the Matakauri Lodge, but they are also located minutes away from fly-fishing, bungee-cord jumping, and glacier adventures.
