- May 13, 2022
Mövenpick hotel Auckland opening soon followed by Wellington
Swiss-born hospitality brand, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, will launch its first property in New Zealand with the official opening of Mövenpick Hotel Auckland on May 16. Mövenpick Hotel Auckland will feature 207 contemporary guestrooms and suites, on-site and virtual gyms, a signature restaurant and bar, a street-side café, a dedicated meeting and events conference room, valet parking and a library. Business travellers and corporate conferences will be well catered to in the hotel’s full-service conference space situated on level one, equipped with eight function rooms, state of the art technology, full tech support, natural daylight, inbuilt audio-visual, and free Wi-Fi access.
With its heart-of-the-city location and access to some of the best commercial, retail, dining and leisure attractions in Tāmaki Makaurau, Mövenpick Hotel Auckland is tipped to become an iconic centre piece of the city’s CBD. Set to be followed by a Wellington counterpart launching in July. With a warm, contemporary design that is sophisticated but never pretentious, guests can expect quality and heartfelt service in an inviting, approachable atmosphere. Guests can expect a range of carefully curated experiences that are distinctly ‘Mövenpick’ in nature, with something on offer for everyone. Chocolate lovers will delight at the daily Chocolate Hour – a decadent chocolate experience with live demonstrations, from rolling truffles to icing cupcakes, staged every afternoon in the hotel lobby.
For hard-core dessert lovers, a 24-hour Sundae Service will be available in-room, bringing their wildest dessert dreams to life with kds entitled to free ice cream for the duration of their stay.
Sarah Derry, Accor Pacific Chief Executive Officer, is delighted to be able to bring a duo of Mövenpick hotels to New Zealand, offering the authentic Mövenpick experience to New Zealander’s for the first time – and welcoming overseas visitors with a fresh and exciting new brand to the market. “Mövenpick Hotel Auckland offers something different to the New Zealand market.”
Both Mövenpick properties – Auckland and Wellington – will be dining destinations in their own right, offering guests and visitors the very finest in Asian Fusion cuisine at Auckland’s BODA restaurant and Wellington’s Forage.
