Manata Lodge Luxury Business for Sale Queenstown

We are delighted to present the beautiful Manata Lodge which has been in the guardianship of a lovely local family for many years, who now wish to retire. The Manata Lodge featuring a spectacular entrance, gateway, and lobby, and four self-contained suites, plus ample carparking, this property presents a business investment opportunity like no other.

The spectacular mountain views provide a stunning backdrop to the vast number of beautiful weddings and events that have been held on the property, and a liquor licence was previously held to compliment these.

This Luxury Lodge is perfectly positioned to take advantage of Queenstown's growing visitor market and is regarded as one of New Zealand's leading conference, incentive, wedding and special event destination.

Location: Enjoying a prime location, sitting above the famous Shotover River to the east. North facing for maximum sun with views to Coronet Peak and The Remarkables, the lodge commands a truly rural outlook, and yet is just 5 minutes from Queenstown Airport and 15 minutes from Queenstown's bustling CBD. The elevation of the location offers seclusion for lodge guests to find their own space to relax and unwind.

The Manata Lodge enjoys a reputation as one of Queenstown’s most delightful luxury accommodation providers: Accessed from its own dedicated private driveway, the luxury lodge is comprised of four self-contained suites: two studio apartments, a one-bedroom apartment, and a two-bedroom unit.

They each feature their own kitchen, ensuite and private courtyard or balcony. All are currently individually offered, to maximise returns. Potentially a new owner could rent the entire lodge to a manager and receive a consistent set income with no workload.
