The luxury Rees Hotel Queenstown on the shores of Lake Wakatipu is rewarding you just for reading SnowsBest.

I love a luxury hotel at the end of a long ski day – open fires, ski valets to take your gear, bar men to deliver red wine, deep bath tubs to soak in, the list goes on.

If you like to ski or snowboard and you love the finer things in life then The Rees Hotel Queenstown has your name on it, if I haven’t booked in first.

The Rees Hotel Queenstown has a coveted absolute lakefront position with dramatic vistas of both Lake Wakatipu and the mountain amphitheatre that thrusts skyward from the lake shores.

Sixty spacious hotel rooms and ninety apartments (one to three bedroom) boast free wi-fi, iPod docking stations, under floor bathroom heating and large balconies to drink in the views. Apartments also have gas fireplaces, gourmet kitchens and laundry facilities.

Transport me there now.

But seriously, let’s get to the important stuff. Like wine and food.

Guests at The Rees have access to a stunning Wine Cellar and fine dining cuisine at The True South Dining Room.  The restaurant has been awarded the prestigious 2014 Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator so you know it comes with impressive boasting rights.

Add a complimentary shuttle to and from Queenstown’s town centre, a fleet of mountain bikes, a gym, art gallery, complimentary underground car parking, private jetty and star lit observatory.

Plus skiers and boarders have secure ski lockers for their equipment, the option to pre book your ski and snowboard gear and have them available at The Rees upon arrival. There’s in room post ski massage options, fireplaces in the lobby and apartments and the best of Bordeaux and Central Otago red wines to warm the weary bones.

Did we mention luxury mountain transfers in The Rees Audi Q7?

We didn’t? Well it would be rude if we didn’t also let you know that The Rees recently won The New Zealand Leading Hotel Residence at The World Travel Awards, has been named one of the top 5 hotels in New Zealand by TripAdvisor and the Best Family Ski Hotel in New Zealand by Holidays With Kids.

All this from NZ$195 including gst per night.

Even luckier for us The Rees are sharing the snow love this winter with readers.
