Queenstown’s two swanky Hilton hotels are now open for bookings.

The long-awaited hotels – on the edge of Lake Wakatipu near the Kawarau River – will open their doors on May 19.

The Hilton and Kawarau Hotel, also part of the Kawarau Village development and managed by Hilton, will offer water taxi and road shuttle services into downtown Queenstown.

A room for two adults and a child at the Kawarau Hotel starts from $210 including GST, while Hilton guest rooms cost from $295.

Along with the hotels, Kawarau Village also boasts a restaurant, noodle bar, cafe, deli and pub.
