Hyatt Hotels Corporation has debuted its luxury Park Hyatt brand in New Zealand for the first time, opening its maiden location in Auckland in a key waterfront location.
The hotel, which features 195 guest rooms each measuring 47 square metres, four restaurants and a bar, day spa, fitness centre and flexible event spaces, will be led by Brett Sweetman as General Manager.
Designed in the style of a Māori wharenui, the hotel pays homage to the culture’s traditions with a strong collection of artwork placed throughout the hotel. Each room features authentic Tukutuku panels as featured artworks as well as rugs made from locally-sourced wool.
Park Hyatt Auckland features a culinary team led by Executive Chef and native Kiwi, Brent Martin, who returns home after two decades managing luxury restaurants in six countries around the world. Dining outlets include all-day venue, The Living Room, which will serve a la carte breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. Grab and go-style snacks will be available at The Pantry, while the hotel’s signature restaurant – Onemata – will showcase local produce and local culinary talent drawing on sustainably sourced ingredients in a seasonal menu.
“We are delighted to welcome the first guests to Park Hyatt Auckland, a waterfront location steeped in New Zealand’s rich culture,” said 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 personalised service.”
