Park Hyatt Auckland set to open
& introduce a new level of luxury
- 10th September 2020 -
New Zealand’s first Park Hyatt hotel will be opening its restaurants and bars this spring, providing Aucklanders and visitors with a new sophisticated place to meet, drink and dine in a prime waterfront location. Hotel guestrooms are currently available for reservation from 15 September, providing unrivalled accommodation options that will set a new benchmark for luxury hospitality in New Zealand.
Overlooking the Waitemata Harbour, the new Park Hyatt Auckland will be a sophisticated, waterfront residence that will provide guests with unique and intimate experiences.
Concepts & Design
Designed by Ali Reda from ar+d in Singapore and partnering with local Bossley Architects, the seven-story hotel has been designed to reflect a Maori wharenui (house) – to be a place of gathering that brings families and communities together. The exterior of the hotel centres on the notion of a Maori cloak around the building, creating a double skin offering warmth, privacy, and beauty.
The elegant and comfortable interiors were designed by the UK-based Conran and Partners to feel like a home away from home. The hotel’s design evokes a haven of tranquillity and a waterfront oasis that is a short seaside stroll to the bustling CBD. The designers worked closely with local Iwi to feature traditional Maori artworks, while native Totara Pouwhenua (carvings) will line the entrances to welcome guests into the hotel.
Ranging from 47sqm rooms to the 245sqm Presidential Suite, all 195 guestrooms will feature Maori accents, custom-designed tukutuku panels and rugs, made from New Zealand wool. The 23 suites will offer commanding views with the Presidential Suite positioned on the rooftop, featuring an internal garden and a large 125sqm terrace to entertain and soak up the spectacular panoramic views.
Drinking & Dining
Park Hyatt Auckland will launch a collection of bars and restaurants designed to enable guests to meet, drink and dine against the mesmerising city skyline and water backdrop as they enjoy authentic and personalised service. The creative culinary team will be helmed by Executive Chef, Brent Martin, a New Zealander who has returned home after an illustrious career spanning six countries.
Drawing from New Zealand’s rich and diverse landscapes and culinary innovation, the immersive dining experience will include:
Onemata, the hotel’s signature restaurant, will serve the finest local produce with a menu driven by seasonal ingredients supplied by carefully chosen New Zealand food artisans and suppliers.
The Pantry will offer something for everyone, from a quick grab and go for those on the move to a dine-in experience featuring a modern fresh menu in a relaxed environment.
The Living Room, the hotel’s all-day dining venue, will include a-la-carte breakfast and a unique afternoon tea experience with picturesque views on the water’s edge.
Captain’s Bar will concoct classic cocktails with a local twist, from an extensive list of fortified spirits and a menu of snacks and sharing platters.
With more than 9,500 sqm of flexible event spaces, including a ceremonial garden, meeting rooms and Waka; the rooftop bar, Park Hyatt Auckland aims to be the city’s premier location for inspirational and sophisticated social events. The event team at Park Hyatt Auckland will ensure any gathering is defined by creativity and imagination with personalised planning like customised menus and unique decor, providing a commitment to quality with mastery over the details.
