New Pullman Hotel for Rotorua
- May 24, 2017
Accor Hotels has announced that a new 5-star Pullman hotel will open in Rotorua in late 2018/early 2019. It will be the first internationally-branded 5-star hotel to open in the city, and is part of the largest and fastest-growing 5-star hotel brand in the Pacific region.
Pullman Rotorua is currently being developed as a conversion of an existing 9-storey building once used as a government building in the central business district on Arawa Street. The construction of the hotel will see the creation of an estimated 300 jobs together with ongoing employment in hospitality.
The 130-room hotel will boast panoramic views of the city and lake area and feature a sophisticated Executive Lounge (a hallmark of every Pullman hotel), business lounge, chill-out lounge, restaurant and bar, gymnasium, car parking as well as five meeting rooms catering for conference and events.
Members of AccorHotels’ free loyalty program Le Club AccorHotels will also be able to earn points for stays at Pullman Rotorua and access rewards and benefits which include free wifi, room upgrades and welcome drinks.
Pullman Rotorua is expected to be popular with international and domestic business and leisure travellers, due to its exclusive 5-star offering and prime central CBD location and within 500 metres from the Rotorua lakefront. Earlier this year, Accor Hotels announced the opening of a 250 room Pullman Hotel at Auckland Airport.
Pullman is part of AccorHotels rapidly expanding international luxury brand portfolio with over 65 Pullman hotels in the Asia Pacific region, and over 100 globally. The new Rotorua hotel will complement AccorHotels’ sister hotels Novotel and ibis Rotorua Lakeside.
