Queenstown’s Gourmet Secrets Unlocked with Peppers

Leading boutique accommodation group, Peppers, has unveiled the secrets to Queenstown’s gourmet food scene as part of the ‘Peppers Gourmet Food Trail’ – a national program that celebrates fine food and wine across seven New Zealand Peppers retreats and resorts.

Set amongst the plethora of dining options that make up the vibrant Queenstown foodie enclave, Peppers Beacon Queenstown has made it easy for guests with the Queenstown Food Trail map - a selection of the top spots for fine dining; family friendly restaurants; after dark night caps and best breakfast and brunch cafes. To make it even easier for Peppers guests, a charge-back facility has been organised with selected venues along with preferred seating wherever possible.

The Queenstown Food Trail map is offered with the Peppers Gourmet Food Trail package which starts from $249 per night in a studio room and includes buffet breakfast for two people. And so the culinary journey can begin on arrival, guests will also enjoy freshly baked bread and a tasting platter featuring the flavours and foods of the Otago region including some of the world’s most desired indulgences; chocolate and cheese. The Remarkable Sweet Shop Crème Brulee Fudge will satisfy the sweetest tooth complemented by the silky smooth Windsor Blue by Whitestone Cheese.

Included in the fine dining recommendations is Wai restaurant, located on Steamer Wharf and offering stunning seafood. Guests of Peppers Beacon Resort, Queenstown will receive preferred seating and a glass of Mumm Cordon Rouge N.V. Champagne on arrival.
