Peppers Bluewater Resort

+64 3 680 7000| State Highway 8, Lake Tekapo

Set near the shores of Lake Tekapo and surrounded by the snow-capped peaks of the majestic Southern Alps, Peppers Bluewater Resort offers an array of rooms and suites in the heart of the Mackenzie Country.

Inspired by the landscape, the architectural design of Peppers Bluewater Resort reflects the natural colours and textures of the Mackenzie Basin which incorporates the glacial blue water and the smooth stones on the shores of the lake.

Choose from a range of hotel rooms, and 1-3 bedroom villas.

The resort's onsite Rakinui Restaurant & Bar has been awarded the 2013 New Zealand Beef and Lamb Excellence Award for its respectful use of unique, locally sourced beef and lamb products.

The restaurant is synonymous for showcasing the Mackenzie Country's finest produce, and paying homage to those who work so hard to provide it. From the free-range pork from Havoc Pork in Waimate, to the venison farmed at neighbouring Balmoral Estate, the infamous High Country Salmon and organic, free-range eggs from nearby Fairlie – Rakinui captures the essence of this dynamic farm land. The menu itself highlights modern New Zealand cuisine with a contemporary twist. To complement the menu, our beverage list celebrates a broad range of NZ's sensational regional wines.

Enjoy the spectacular views of Lake Tekapo in a relaxed and casual dining setting.
