The Elms on Lake Hayes

Our three stunning multi-level villas are perched on beautiful Lake Hayes. Each one is uniquely designed and individually furnished, showcasing the style of leading New Zealand interior designers.

The Elms Villas

Situated on the shore of picturesque Lake Hayes and overlooking Coronet Peak and The Remarkables mountain range, the Elms on Lake Hayes offer the ultimate sanctuary for groups or families. Three separate multi-level apartments each allow for a private retreat, with the ability to combine accommodations for larger groups via a single foyer.

Each apartment has a unique feel and has been carefully designed and styled by premier New Zealand designers; effortless style and Eichardt’s signature touches will delight and enhance the stunning natural surroundings. The villas feature sumptuous living accommodation, generous indoor and outdoor entertaining areas and hot tubs in two of the villas. The villas can be a perfect bolthole hideaway for those seeking peace and serenity or an ideal gateway to exploring the wonders of the wider region.

Private footpaths from the villas lead directly to the walking path around Lake Hayes which is easily circumnavigated on foot or by bike, and the beautiful village of Arrowtown is only six minutes away by road – or a longer cycle. The Elms are located opposite the renowned Amisfield winery, offering an excellent fine dining and wine experience for the discerning palate.

A dedicated manager remains on site to attend to guest needs, and a dedicated butler for your party is available for more personalised service should you wish.
