What’s Hot at The Hermitage

Put the ‘wow’ factor in your holiday by staying in one of the world's most spectacular and romantic destinations. Halfway between Queenstown and Christchurch in New Zealand’s South Island, the historic Hermitage Hotel lies deep in the heart of Aoraki Mount Cook National Park and World Heritage Area surrounded by towering mountains, turquoise lakes, and New Zealand’s tallest mountain.

The perfect place for relaxation, romance and adventure, Aoraki Mount Cook offers a smorgasbord of activities including the Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre, Tasman Lake/Glacier boat trips, stargazing, scenic flights, glacier landings, hiking and mountaineering, heli-biking, fishing, and amazing local food and wine.

Say I Love You
Couples can ‘say I love you’ by taking advantage of a NZ$368 package that includes one night in a Superior Room with exceptional views of Aoraki Mount Cook and a romantic four course dinner in the Panorama restaurant with a complimentary bottle of house wine. A late checkout the next morning is the perfect leisurely start to the day.

Starry Eyed Surprise
Stay and play at one of the world’s most spectacular stargazing spots! This NZ$249 package offers an unforgettable stargazing experience with expert astronomy guides from the Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre, one night’s accommodation in a standard room* and a slap-up cooked breakfast. Get in quick - these packages are subject to availability and are selling fast!

ABOUT STARGAZING: Aoraki Mount Cook is far from city lights and therefore has some of the darkest skies in New Zealand - perfect for viewing the night sky. Lack of light pollution combined with lack of atmospheric pollution produces a brilliantly clear night sky completely filled with astronomical action. Visitors can explore the southern sky from the Hillary Deck with powerful telescopes to ensure a close look at stars, planets, moon craters and distant galaxies. To study even more closely check out the Planetarium at the Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre.
* Free room upgrade is subject to availability of a higher room category at time of check-in. Please note stargazing is subject to weather conditions.
