Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa has launched its online booking service as it begins the final countdown to its grand opening.

After years of planning and development, the luxury resort will open the doors to its 24 private villas in mid-December. Each villa looks out onto working organic vineyards and the mountains of Gibbston.

Located only 20 minutes from Queenstown airport, Gibbston Valley Lodge & Spa offers unique luxury packages and experiences to indulge in during their stay.

“Perhaps your perfect day is exploring our 1000-acre Gibbston Valley Station, on foot or by bike, before sipping a glass of award-winning Pinot Noir by the Lodge fireplace,” says Greg Hunt, Gibbston Valley CEO. “Or maybe your ideal day will involve indulging in a personalized ‘vinotherapy’ spa treatment, followed by a glass of sparkling wine in the Central Otago sun.

“What we think will be particularly appealing to our guests will be the Essential Wine Experience offering. This exclusive package will be the pinnacle in wine indulgence, including a premium winery, vineyard and cave tour, a private wine tasting with the winemaker in our Lodge Cellar, and lunch crafted by Head Chef, Anthony Gradiska.

“We hope that our guests will leave with a new found appreciation for Central Otago wine and food,” adds Greg. “It is now widely regarded as being amongst the best in the world, and we believe that is because we treat our natural surroundings with the utmost patience and respect. We look forward to sharing our knowledge and love for the region and giving our guests fantastic memories that will last them a lifetime.”
