Summer turns the Central Otago into an adventurer’s playground. Edgewater Hotel basks in log hot days by the brilliant blue waters of lake Wanaka. Whether seeking to relax, unwind, partake or explore, we can tailor a unique Edgewater experience specifically to you.

Autumn is a season of beautiful changes, when Wanaka turns from green to red-gold as the trees colour the landscape. Edgewater Wanaka is the perfect base for dining and comfortable accommodation during autumn’s cooler mornings and evenings. As the sun climbs over Lake Wanaka and the day warms up, we encourage our guests to experiment with the variety of activities on offer.

Autumn at Edgewater is a truly special time of the year. Whether strolling, hiking or riding, there is beauty to be found in all directions. Immerse yourself in the landscape and take in the full majesty of nature’s changing colours. 


June, July, August

Winter ushers in the spectacular snow sports possibilities of the Wanaka region. With Treble Cone, Snow Farm and Cardrona all in easy reach Edgewater Hotel Resort and Spa is the perfect base for the winter adventurer. After a long day on the slopes, where better to rejuvenate than the welcoming warmth of Edgewater. Here you can trade stories in our well appointed bar before a hot nourishing winter meal.

For the non-skier, the crisp winter days are perfectly balanced by the southern warmth of our friendly staff. Relax by a roaring fire, and tantalise your taste buds with our seasonal menu. When it’s time to enjoy the outdoors, you can experience Wanaka’s clear winter skies and marvel at the sheer beauty of our snow-capped peaks.

September, October, November

Spring at Edgewater in Wanaka is the season of rejuvenation, when bare winter branches flourish with wild greens and new spring growth. The landscape around Wanaka comes alive with the energy of the season. As the trees and plants come to life, the local streams fill with snow-melt and the fishing season approaches. At the water’s edge our lush lawns provide the perfect setting to enjoy the spring days.

When not outdoors experiencing the very best of nature, you may wish to do some relaxing yourself. At Edgewater we encourage our guests to make the most of this wonderful time, and can organise your very own personal rejuvenation experience, leaving you refreshed in body and soul.
