Accor will soon introduce its premium Swiss-born hospitality brand Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts to New Zealand with two hotels set to open in Auckland and Wellington respectively.
Mövenpick Hotel Auckland, located in the heart of the city, will open its doors to guests on Monday May 16, while the Wellington property will open in July.
“Mövenpick Hotel Auckland offers something different to the New Zealand market,” said Accor Pacific Chief Executive Officer, Sarah Derry.
“Guests will receive a world-class hotel experience and enjoy the distinct moments and flavours of Mövenpick.”
The hotel will offer guests signature Mövenpick experiences such as a 24-hour Sundae Service, available in-room, and a Chocolate Hour – where they can enjoy live demonstrations such as rolling truffles and icing cupcakes in the hotel lobby every afternoon.
For those looking for a healthier treat, the hotel will offer shots blended with juice or yogurt and fresh fruit and vegetables at the breakfast counter.
The hotel will feature 207 guestrooms and suites, on-site and virtual gyms, signature bar and restaurant BODA, which offers Asian Fusion cuisine, a street-side café and a dedicated meeting and events space with eight function rooms and state-of-the-art technology. There is also valet parking and a library available on site.
“Mövenpick is a brand name that New Zealanders are familiar with, which is associated with quality and luxury,” Derry said.
“The strategic location of both Mövenpick hotels in cosmopolitan centres provides travellers with a gateway to each city, and all the culinary, retail and commercial amenities they have on offer.”
Mövenpick currently boasts more than 110 locations across the globe.
