Did you know... the story behind the Blanket Bay logo and how the Bay got it's name? No one knows for sure whether the quiet valley called Paradise takes its name from the beautiful ducks that flock there, or the magnificence of the environment... Certainly no other word but PARADISE could match the rugged natural splendour of the surrounding landscape. It has been home to the Paradise shelduck (in Maori language pūtakitaki or pūtangitangi) since time immemorial. These gentle ducks illustrate a love story as old as the valley itself. When two birds find each other, they share a lifelong partnership. Today, their bright feather are identified with the sanctuary of romantic seclusion found on the doorstep of Paradise. Blanket Bay nestles on the northern shores of Lake Wakatipu. The name recalls the events a century ago, when pioneer farmers sheared their sheep on the shore of our Bay under rough shelters stitched together from blankets. The lodge at Blanket Bay is a rare combination of unspoiled beauty, adventure experiences and luxury accommodation. Blanket Bay - Next to Paradise...
