Scenic stop spot - Lakeside apartments, Wanaka

Lakeside apartments, WanakaA difficult site close to downtown Wanaka combined with a full level redesign, made the finishing of the ambitious new Lakeside Apartments, at 9 Lakeside Road Wanaka, even more of an occasion to celebrate.

The end result is 25 stylish spacious apartments, enjoying massive private balconies and living spaces with 180 degree panoramic views of Lake Wanaka and Mount Aspiring National Park, of which 20 apartments will offer the ultimate in Wanaka guest accommodation.

The apartment complex has been designed in keeping with the surrounding alpine environment. Stacked Wanaka stone and hardwood beams feature in the exterior design while the interior of each apartment is exquisitely finished with quality furnishings and neutral tones accented by Central Otago colours designed to harmonise with the breathtaking views over Lake Wanaka.

Coated inside and out in Resene, the exterior features Resene Wintergrade Lumbersider, Resene Sandtex lightly textured Mediterranean style finish and Resene Waterborne Woodsman penetrating stain tinted to Resene Cedar. The main building plasterwork is finished in a special colour mix of Infinity Stone, created specifically for the project and available exclusively from Resene Queenstown complemented by Resene Storm Dust (grey) on balcony edges and fascias.

The interior fabric features a minimalist colour scheme of Resene Half Spanish White (muddy light neutral) walls, Resene Quarter Spanish White ceilings, Resene Spanish White doors, trim and joinery and a feature colour of Resene Akaroa (light tan) in standard rooms and Resene Napa (grey based neutral) in the penthouses so as not to draw attention away from the awe inspiring vista.

If Wanaka is on your travel wish list, we recommend you book your room at the Lakeside Apartments early to experience luxury at its best or you may find yourself enviously admiring the apartment guests from afar. Check out
