An Isthmus is a thin strip of land that separates two bodies of water — and in our case the bodies of water happen to be two of the most astounding mountain lakes in the world. With famed Lake Wānaka to the east and the crystalline Lake Hāwea to the West, we couldn’t have imagined a better place for the newest luxury destination for The Lindis Group portfolio — Mt Isthmus, an exceptional sole use premium villa experience.
Sitting on a 7000 acre high-country station, the villa looks out over Lake Hāwea — with rugged and steep mountain ranges climbing straight out of the lake’s shores on all sides.
To create unity with the surrounding topography, the design of the villa is directly inspired by these mountains — the lake facing and rear façades mimicking the mountains with jagged geometric cornices of different heights. From above the lines of the copper finished roof appears as the contours of a flowing river, hugging the curves of the surrounding hills. The interior is finished with clean polished concrete and the superlative decoration The Lindis Group has become known for.
Internally, the four suites are the epitome of luxury with super king-size beds; each with an ensuite, the latest in interior furnishings and incredible views. The villa also features a state of the art kitchen (with a personal chef service), a media room, spa pool, several spacious entertaining areas, and an in floor gas fire pyramid, making it the ideal getaway for families, friends, or small work groups to soak in each other’s company.
