Auckland's latest five-star hotel opens its doors


New Zealand's newest hotel, the Park Hyatt Auckland, opened its doors this week, offering a new luxurious place to meet, drink and dine in a prime waterfront location. 

The first Park Hyatt in New Zealand is a 195-room hotel that features four restaurants and bars, a day spa and fitness centre as well as versatile event spaces. 

Park Hyatt Auckland also marks the return of Hyatt hotels to the land of the long white cloud. 

“We are delighted to welcome the first guests to Park Hyatt Auckland, a waterfront location steeped in New Zealand's rich culture," said hotel general manager Brett Sweetman. 

"Discerning domestic travellers as well as the local community can expect a host of exciting gastronomic delights and rare culinary moments, delivered with intuitive personalized service.

“As part of Hyatt's global care and cleanliness commitment, we have enhanced safety and cleanliness protocols to protect the wellbeing of our colleagues and guests ensuring their peace of mind throughout their stay.”

The hotel has been designed by Ali Reda from ar+d in Singapore in collaboration with local Bossley Architects, the hotel's architecture is conceptualised as a Māori wharenui (house) – to be a place of gathering that brings families and communities together. 


The hotel's double-layered exterior echoes a Māori cloak. 

The culinary team is led by executive chef Brent Martin, a New Zealander who has returned home after a career spanning six countries and more than 20 years managing restaurants in some of the world's top hotels.

Guests booking a Waterfront Escape package before October 31 to stay at the hotel before December 31 will receive NZD$50 credit per night to spend on site, as well as a complimentary room upgrade to a room with waterfront views.
