On April 19th New Zealand finally rolled out the welcome mat for Australian arrivals as the trans-Tasman travel bubble began. While some of those travelling will be kiwis coming home to visit family and friends, many others will be holidaymakers looking to get out of Oz for a well-deserved break. If that’s you, you’re in the right place! We have compiled a list below of some of our best hotels in New Zealand.
Located just off the vibrant Ponsonby road, Hotel Fitzroy is the perfect place to stay for an Auckland city get-away. This five-star hotel is a luxurious blend of classic and contemporary design, where relaxation and indulgence are encouraged. Of course, Auckland itself is brimming with exciting activities, but you will find yourself struggling to leave your suite with all the gorgeous offerings available.
If you’re looking for a couple’s retreat, our Fable Love Story is the ultimate grand romance package. Start your stay off right and toast to the trans-Tasman bubble with our complimentary bottle of champagne upon arrival. Your luxury room will be furnished with a fully stocked mini-bar and include hand-crafted chocolate strawberries for your enjoyment. In the evening, try our Fable signature cocktails, and take your pick of the incredible dining experience on Ponsonby road. After waking up in our extra comfortable king-size bed, come down for a delectable cooked breakfast for two and a complimentary late check-out.
Willis Wellington Hotel
If you have spent the last few months missing out on art and culture, then Wellington city is where you need to go next, as it’s known for its excellent café culture and vibrant art and music scene. The Willis Wellington hotel is located right in the heart of the lively Cuba Quarter, only a short walk to several award-winning restaurants and leisure attractions. Our hotel boasts 90 elegant guest rooms with complimentary Wi-Fi, coffee, LCD televisions, in-room refrigerators, and much more. We offer a 24-hour guest service and daily housekeeping to make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
Terrace Downs Resort
The reputation of our South Island accommodation—the Terrace Downs resort—speaks for itself. With its breath-taking views of the Southern Alps, warm hospitality, and world-class interiors, the Terrace Downs has fast become one of New Zealand’s most prestigious high-country resorts. By day you can enjoy a relaxing game of golf on our pristine 18-hole championship course, and we also offer on-site archery, clay shooting, a tennis court, and a state-of-the-art gym. After your day you can reconvene fireside or out on our deck for some local delicacies prepared by our renowned chefs. By night, return to your private villa and once again bask in the glorious alpine scenery. If all that can’t convince you to come to Canterbury, we don’t know what will!
Lake Rotorua Hotel
If you are yet to experience the wonder of geothermal activity, then Rotorua is a fantastic place to visit for your trans-Tasman holiday. Our Lake Rotorua Hotel is located right in the centre of a town full of adventure. We have 38 guest rooms to choose from, all of which have full access to a swimming pool and a heated spa pool. Our staff also have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the region—they would be delighted to answer any questions you may have on the many sites and geothermal activities Rotorua has to offer.
