Tucked into a residential area not far from downtown Wanaka, Alpine Resort is full of nice little surprises.

The resort’s position is one of its biggest advantages – it is on the edge of a hill facing the lake and mountains, so the views from many of the apartments are quite spectacular.

The property is also quite large and modern, with 55 apartments that were built in two stages, the first in 2006. This means that the apartments are quite spacious.

Since apartments are individually owned, they are furnished according to the owners’ taste, but are required to meet a high standard by the management. They all have modern kitchens with stainless steel appliances and everything you need to cook a family dinner. Furthermore, all the apartments have basic daily housekeeping (including rubbish removal and amenity top ups), and there is a full service every fourth day.

The 1 & 2 bedroom apartments are located on the ground floor (the 1 bedroom apartments are actually 2 bedroom apartments with a room locked off). Many but not all of these apartments have views of the mountains. Meanwhile, the 3 bedroom apartments are all located on the first floor, and feature high ceilings and gas fireplaces.

Although the majority of apartments feature great views, some of the 3 bedroom apartments in Stage 2 feature lake and mountain views that are particularly stunning – especially during sunset. However if you’re not lucky enough to get one of these views, you can always enjoy the same view from the hot tub.

To top it all off, the resort has some great facilities including 2 hot tubs, a tennis court, 2 small gyms, and a games room, BBQ and sauna. (There are two pools but they are not heated in winter).
