Swiss-Belhotel is set to make its entry into New Zealand with the signing of a resort outside Queenstown.
Swiss-Belhotel International Chairman, President and owner, Gavin Faull, a New Zealander by birth, said he is proud to bring the rapidly growing brand ‘home’.
“Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak Queenstown is the closest resort to the Coronet Peak ski field and this lends an exclusivity that is perfect for well-heeled international travellers and aspiring skiers and snowboarders,” Faull told HM.
Swiss-Belhotel International is doing a full rebrand of the property and planning to raise its rating to four stars. This will include the introduction of additional conference and meeting space and outdoor hot tubs as well as upgrades to leisure facilities including spa and sauna, petanque, volleyball, croquet, badminton, ski waxing and drying rooms as well as Queenstown’s only ten pin bowling alley.
The resort’s location provides easy access to the Onsen Hot Pools – a natural geothermal hot tub connected to the Shotover River which itself offers an extensive range of water sport activities.
The launch of Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak Queenstown brings the Hong Kong-based group’s portfolio to more than 120 hotels, resorts and projects ranging from 2-star to 5-star classifications across Asia, the Pacific, China and the Middle East.
