Thanks to epic local produce, stunning Māori artworks and some of the largest hotel rooms in New Zealand, Park Hyatt Auckland’s recent debut is one of the best the brand has ever seen, anywhere in the world.

The 195-room waterfront hotel features some of the largest rooms and suites in New Zealand, as well as being home to four restaurants and bars, a day spa and fitness centre and several versatile event spaces.

It has been a brilliant return to New Zealand for the Hyatt chain and a spectacular debut for the luxurious Park Hyatt brand in the country – one that’s perhaps better than many people expected.

Here, the photos quite simply do not do this hotel justice. From the largest and most spacious lobby of any hotel in the country to the brilliant food at Onemata, the rum cocktails at Captain’s Bar, the amazing Māori artworks and sculptures in the hotel and the luxurious furnishings in the rooms, there is an incredible wow factor at this property.

To get an insider’s guide to what’s on offer at the stunning new property, HM‘s Editor-In-Chief and Wayfarer host, James Wilkinson, spoke on camera to Park Hyatt Auckland’s Executive Chef, Brent Martin.


Qantas flies to Auckland, New Zealand from Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Melbourne and Sydney, with many capital city flights operated by widebody Airbus A330 aircraft that feature the airline’s signature suite-style Business Class seats that can be reclined for take-off and landing, fantastic meals, premium Australian wines and one of the best in-flight entertainment systems in the sky. Head to Qantas’ impressive lounges before departure from Australia for world-class dining, a glass of Champagne, a flat white or a signature Negroni.
