Lake Hawea Station named in Conde Nast Traveler: Gold List 2023 for The Best Hotels and Resorts in the World

Erin Florio

We are beyond proud to be on the 2023 Conde Nast Traveler Gold List. We have consciously crafted our accommodation experience and could not be happier to be globally recognised for the experience we are offering. Erin was a delight to host and was fully immersed into the LHS living. We have pulled a few of our favourite comments from the article below:

"Waking up before the day starts from its centerpiece Lake House, an impossibly chic landscape villa with glass walls, and sipping coffee as the rising sun slowly reveals the still-as-glass lake, edged by the snow-dusted Southern Alps and jagged hills, is simple and extraordinary, the type of slowed-down experience that forces you to reflect on how incredible it is to have ended up here in this gloriously perfect pocket of the planet. Which is one of travel’s most precious gifts."

"Lake Hāwea Station’s draw seems to be its intersectionality between the rugged Kiwi farm culture visitors want and the sophisticated taste that defines the country’s luxury-lodge circuit. But scratch a little deeper to see that this 16,000-acre property’s true point of difference is its pioneering ethos in New Zealand’s approach to cultivation and sustainability"

"The Rosses’ goal is to achieve 10 times carbon positivity in 10 years and, in so doing, set a new standard for how farms can operate in a way that more effectively sustains the planet. Yet for its impressive goals and admirable work put into achieving them, Lake Hāwea Station is still, simply, one of the most impressive, can’t-believe-this-place-could-possibly-exist retreats you’ll ever be lucky enough to stay in."
