New direction for Kiwi luxury lodges

Three of New Zealand's highest-profile luxury lodges are to be managed by global giant Rosewood from later this year.

The Robertson family - owners of Kauri Cliffs, Cape Kidnappers (above) and Matakauri (below) - announced today that Rosewood Hotels & Resorts will operate the three Robertson Lodges properties from December 1.

Rosewood manages a global collection of 31 luxury hotels, resorts, and residences in 18 countries including The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel in New York, Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, and the iconic Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris.

The three New Zealand properties will now be known as Rosewood Kauri Cliffs, Rosewood Cape Kidnappers and Rosewood Matakauri.

"Rosewood’s proven commitment to championing storied properties in remarkable destinations around the world is proven," said Jay Robertson.

"With our shared values of exceptional hospitality and staying true to "a sense of place", we are enthusiastic about this next chapter together. Our family’s love of New Zealand runs deep, and we will retain ownership of the three spectacular lodges that our parents created. Rest assured the passion and dedication for these special properties will not change.

"As part of the brand's thoughtful growth strategy, Rosewood has been entrusted with the management of three iconic properties that showcase the diversity of New Zealand.

"With rich landscapes, a multi-layered cultural heritage, and untouched wilderness, New Zealand has captured the imagination of some of the world's most creative minds."

The properties will mark Rosewood's first entry into the Oceania region.

I've stayed in all three over the years. And they were all excellent.    

“New Zealand's inspiring natural beauty and warm hospitality have truly captivated us, and we are thrilled to embark on this remarkable journey with Robertson Lodges," said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group.

“It is with great respect and admiration that we seek to honour the Robertson family's original vision by further elevating the guest experience offered at each resort with Rosewood's singular approach to ultra-luxury hospitality.”
