The Headwaters Eco Lodge & Private Chalets


Just 45 minutes from Queenstown, The Headwaters Eco Lodge is located in the stunning town of Glenorchy that majestically sits at the head of Lake Whakatipu and the confluence of the glacier fed Dart and Rees rivers.


The drive along the edge of Lake Whakatipu through the native forest is considered one of the most spectacular globally – the serenity is astounding.


The Headwaters Lodge has just 14 elegantly appointed private chalets offering modern luxury eco accommodation.


Each chalet features a king-sized bed, ensuite bathroom - with a walk-in rain shower - complemented with high-quality linens, amenities and furnished with original New Zealand artworks. A covered outdoor veranda provides stunning views of the surrounding mountains, and the lodge’s secluded native gardens featuring sculptures, stone mosaic walkways and a covered outdoor fireplace.


Our beautiful and natural environment has inspired a regenerative accommodation style with sustainable eco credentials at the heart of the property. The lodge & chalets are designed to be net positive in energy output while offering every modern convenience and luxury comfort in style.


We look forward to welcoming you here.
