Kia Ora

It seems Christmas comes around even more quickly these days.  At Edgewater - and around Wanaka - Christmas is a festive time where families and friends take the opportunity to enjoy the warm summer days.  

We’re helping to take the hassle out of Christmas Day with a special Christmas Day Buffet lunch and dinner.  We welcome both hotel guests and visitors to Wanaka, but bookings are essential.  Here are some more details for you.

Guest Room Upgrade

We’re in the process of upgrading our guest rooms.  To date our busy project refurbishment team have completed two thirds of our rooms.  Following the busy summer season we’ll conclude the refurbishment programme by completing the last third of rooms in the autumn.

The interior revamp has been quite extensive and has included painting the rooms, improving the lighting, laying new carpet, hanging new curtains, local artwork and new furniture.  Our executive housekeeping team added the finish flourishes with green soft furnishings (for suites and two bedroom apartments) and blue furnishings (for the hotel studio rooms).
