Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat is a luxury retreat located in the Mackenzie Basin alongside Lake Pukaki. The Retreat offers luxury villa accommodation, weddings, executive retreat, conferences and bespoke events. Our guests are discerning, and we deliver a luxury experience that goes beyond the physical presence and amenities and extends to all levels of service and activity on the Retreat.
We are currently searching for and assessing candidates to fill the position of Senior Lodge Assistant for the coming summer season. The ideal candidates will ideally have all the skills listed below and be willing to perform them to the highest standards that the Retreat is known for.
Our top priority is the experience of our guests that come to stay or event with us. From presenting and servicing the luxury accommodations, meals and drinks through to activities around the grounds and the smooth flow of events, the Senior Lodge Assistants are responsible for delivering all aspects of this guest experience.
This is a full-time position and a flexibility in hours is necessary to accommodate our guest requirements at particular times. The person(s) filling this role will live onsite and will need to be essentially “on call” and available to tend to situations as they arise. The onsite accommodation is suited for two people, so we prefer to find a couple with the shared skills and responsibilities for these roles.

My husband booked Mount Cook Lakeside Estate as a surprise weekend away for my 60th birthday. The location is idyllic with lots of outdoor activities on offer should you be inclined. The accommodation is luxurious,spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming. The food prepared by chef Tom is simply delicious. Fresh, locally sourced ingredients cooked to your individual tastes and delivered to your dining table. Luke, Kaye and staff could not have done any more to make this a perfect stay.
