Sherwood Queenstown | NEW ZEALAND

TRAVELSimon HancockComment

Are you seeking a holiday that’s more soul-soothing than sun-boozing? Perhaps your spirit is craving a reconnect to Mother Earth while your skin still demands the soft touch of luxury one can only find with 5 stars.

Well luckily for you we’ve found the perfect combination of both worlds.

Introducing Sherwood Queenstown, a unique hybrid of boutique hotel and rock 'n' roll wilderness escape that's recently opened in New Zealand's idyllic Queenstown

Inspiring a new generation of accommodation, Sherwood fuses eco-friendly lodgings with an ethos that centres around wellbeing, nourishing culinary offerings and cool, raw state-of-the-art design, providing a unique take on modern-day travel. 

Rooms are made from recycled materials and exude warmth and comfort through their cosy, moody interiors. Guests can sink into blankets made from New Zealand merino wool, relax on colourful cushions made from upcylced kilim rugs and admire the picture-perfect scenery through Italian-made wool army blanket curtains. 

The restaurant serves organic, seasonal and locally foraged produce, providing guests with pure nourishment and sustenance. The biodynamic vegetable garden houses lovingly tended to crops offering abundant produce that’s used in the Sherwood kitchen. 


The same philosophy extends to the bar, with a wine list featuring a handpicked selection of minimally processed natural New Zealand wines and spirits sourced from independent New Zealand producers sitting alongside rare artisan liquors from around the world.

SIMON SAYS we’re calling it ‘namaste noir’ and we’re booking a getaway as soon as we dust off our yoga mats.
