The first in the country, Park Hyatt Auckland has officially opened in luxurious waterfront location steeped in New Zealand’s rich culture.
The 195-room hotel features four restaurants and bars, a day spa and fitness centre as well as versatile event space. Park Hyatt Auckland also marks the return of the Hyatt hotels to the country.
The hotel’s design is conceptualised as a Māori wharenui (house), a place of gatherings that brings together families and communities. It also has a double-layered exterior that echoes a Māori cloak and its elegant interiors pay homage to the country’s culture and feature Māori artwork exclusively created by Kiwi artisans for Park Hyatt Auckland. Guest rooms come with floor-to-ceiling windows; most have views of either the Lighter Quay or Waitematā Harbour, and all rooms have been decorated with bespoke tukutuku panels—a traditional Māori art form—as well as rugs made from New Zealand wool.
All four of the Park Hyatt’s drinking and dining venues are set in a backdrop of the water and views of Auckland’s city skyline. Signature restaurant Onemata highlights local produce: its menu is driven by seasonal ingredients sourced from the country’s top suppliers and food artisans. The Pantry offers a contemporary dine-in experience in a relaxed environment, alongside grab-and-go meals for those in a hurry. À la carte breakfasts and a unique afternoon tea experience await at The Living Room, the hotel’s all-day dining venue, while Captain’s Bar will give classic cocktails a local twist, drawing on its collection of fortified spirits and pairing concoctions with snacks and sharing platters.
