This is Lord of the Rings country: pristine volcanic lakes, soaring mountain ranges, ancient glaciers and amazing food and wine.

The Dacha allows you to enjoy Wanaka in pure luxury.

Exchange your wedding vows overlooking one of the most spectacular views in the South Island of New Zealand, Lake Wanaka. With its dramatic backdrop of craggy peaks and glaciated valleys of the Southern Alps this is one unforgettable wedding destination.

And in winter  The Dacha is the perfect environment for you to relax and share stories with your family and friends with a drink in hand by firelight.

Enjoy the scenery at The Lookout an outdoor social area with seating giving guests panoramic views of the lake and mountains. The Lookout will quickly become the natural meeting spot for morning coffee, wine and cheese afternoons or cocktail hour.
