Edgewater Resort re-opens at Lake Wanaka in New Zealand

by James Wilkinson

After being temporarily closed during the alert levels four and three lock down periods, Edgewater Resort at Lake Wanaka in New Zealand has welcomed guests and visitors back to the lakeside hotel this week (may 14).

Edgewater Resort General Manager, Catherine Bone, and her team have focused on re-opening the hotel in the safest way possible.

“We’ve followed Government directives about the way we can safely operate at level two, including spacing tables in the restaurant, contactless contact tracing systems, and having single servers in the dining area,” she said.

“The hotel is spaciously positioned on 10 acres of lakefront land, so there is plenty of room for guests to move around safely. There are no lifts at the property.

“The rigorous cleaning processes and liberal availability of hand sanitisers, that were in place prior to the lock down, will continue.

“It is exciting to be able to once again welcome visitors and guests back to the hotel,” she said.

Although the circumstances have been challenging, she said the timing does mean that Edgewater is open for the ski season and July school holidays.
