Planning your next New Zealand holiday? Take a peek inside the new QT Auckland, with bookings now open from 01 November 2020. Nabbing a prime position on Viaduct Harbour, the waterfront retreat captures the “quirky luxury” of the QT Hotels & Resorts brand and is their third NZ property (complementing QT Queenstown and QT Wellington).

Drawing inspiration from the oyster and oyster trawler, long-time QT collaborator and designer Nic Graham has created a visual feast for the waterfront retreat. Think rough, raw, and natural textures of the outside of the shell juxtaposed with the smooth, clean, and luxurious nature of the inside. Natural hues taken from New Zealand’s landscape contrast with bold, block colours, and exposed concrete and brass accents feature alongside plush textures and luxurious furnishings.

“We have blended contrast and quirk for QT Auckland as we have with each unique QT Property,” said Graham. “The idea was onset by my first visit to Auckland and a dozen oysters – the salty sweet is a metaphor for the design, where we have elevated the bold use of colour and created a cocooning interior that uses interesting local materials and suppliers, adding to the harbour-based neighbourhood narrative of QT Auckland.”

Celebrating its locale with water views, signature dining experiences, local artwork, and a rooftop bar with sweeping views of Viaduct Harbour, QT Auckland will offer 150 rooms and suites.
