An eco camp at the top of Lake Wakatipu has been given top honours at the country’s most prestigious holiday park awards.
Camp Glenorchy Eco Retreat cleaned up at the ReviewPro Spirit of Hospitality Awards last Thursday.
The collection of Otago eco cabins was praised for its “top-notch customer service in a relatively remote environment,” Holiday Parks CEO Fergus Brown.
Winners of last week’s awards were plucked from hundreds of entries, using the Global Review Index tools for measuring members’ online reputation.
Among the other awards given by ReviewPro included most improved park, which went to the rank-climbing Takapuna Beach Holiday Park on Auckland’s north shore.
Other plaudit earning sites included the Camp Lake Hawea’s Geodesic Domes. The attention-grabbing golf ball-like glamping structures won the best new build over $100k.

However it was Alison and Gordon Collister of Timaru TOP 10 Holiday Park who were given a special award for long service. Having given 30 years to the holiday park industry, Fergus Brown said they were a natural recipients of the Outstanding Service Award, as “go-to people who are always generous with their time and willing to share their intelligent and thoughtful views to support others”.
