Developed with ultimate guest comfort in mind, Kamana Lakehouse features contemporary design, highest quality beds, plush furnishings and luxury amenities.

A southern construction company is making its mark with inspired building solutions in the Wakatipu Basin.
Solution Building Ltd was formed ten years ago when Brendon Crow and Tom Hazlett decided to draw on their combined expertise in the building trade to collaborate on some top end constructions in and around Queenstown.
They now run a crew of 30 in two teams, providing professional services in planned and reactive maintenance, and covering all aspects of building compliance issues.
The ongoing refurbishment of Kamana Lake-house, on the former Aspen Hotel’s site in Fernhill, is a testament to their exceptional quality of work.
The hotel re-opened in January this year as a 4.5 star independent boutique hotel designed to create customer-centric experiences in a luxury décor.
At the centre of the property the living space was transformed into an intimate social space featuring lounge areas with uniquely designed fireplaces, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a wrap-around deck, framing lake and mountains beyond.
The interiors of the 73 ensuite rooms were developed featuring contemporary design, highest quality beds, plush furnishings and luxury amenities, with the ultimate guest comfort in mind.
Having a hotel still operational during construction was a challenge, said Brendon.
He anticipates Solution Buildings have about another 12 months work to complete the first stage of the refurbishment, which includes a new spa complex, promoting the hotel a 5-star rating.
Other recent projects completed by Solution Buildings have included the renovation and refurbishment one of Arrowtown’s top restaurant venues – Bendix Stables (formerly The Stables), refurbishment of orthodontist’s rooms in Remarkables Park, and construction from scratch of a craft brewery for the Altitude Brewing Company in Frankton.
Meanwhile on the books are the fit-out and design for an existing new commercial building in Remarkables Park, and fit-out for an Italian restaurant.
Solution Building takes pride in providing a reliable, high quality service.

“We’re a company that understands how buildings ‘go together’,” says Brendon.
“With over 30 years of building experience we will help you with all your building projects, offering ideas and solutions for any size building job.”
They work in with a reliable team of sub-trades; and use Placemakers as their main material supplier. As Registered Certified Builders, the company provides a ten-year warranty for any of its work.
Solution Building is likely to be found working in both the commercial and housing around the Wakatipu Basin, says Brendon.
Hailing from the small rural Southland town of Tuatapere, he and Tom have seen a huge transformation in the tourist town of Queenstown that has become their home.
They had specialised over the past few years in purchasing sections and building high end speculation homes for sale, but the bottom had dropped out of this market with the recent Government crackdown on overseas investment.
“We lost 90 percent of investors in the top end market,” says Brendon. However the company’s dogma is never to say no to a job, and this has kept the work rolling in.
“We can complete works from repairing doors and maintaining decks, to constructing small offices and fitouts.”
With ongoing housing and commercial developments around Queenstown, Brendon foresees plenty of work to keep the company fully engaged in years to come.
“We are changing from a town into a mini-cit y with the infrastructure development going on in Queenstown.”
