Azur

23 MacKinnon Ter.
Queenstown , New Zealand http://www.azur.co.nz/
64 3 409-0388

Azur consists of nine 800- square-foot freestanding villas on a steep cliff facing the alpine, Tolkienesque landscape surrounding Lake Wakatipu. Architect John Blair’s designs are simple gabled forms, roofed in flint-colored corrugated steel and clad in Oregon red cedar and indigenous schist. The rooms are wildly plush without stealing attention from the views. Since Queenstown has many good restaurants and is only five minutes away, the owners made a pointed decision to offer only an exhaustive breakfast, plus all sorts of interesting nibbles throughout the day. Limited-edition Land Cruisers ferry guests into town around the clock at no charge.
