Scoping out New Zealand accommodation? Well, you must be reading our minds because a New Zealand holiday is something we’re locking in for 2022. It’s been too long! For those with South Island star Queenstown on their holiday shortlist, look out for the new Holiday Inn Queenstown Remarkables Park in early December.
Just five minutes from the Queenstown Airport, the multi-million-dollar hotel will offer 182 rooms and suites, many with balconies and views of The Remarkables mountain range. Kitted out with timber and stone finishes and a calming, nature-inspired palette, rooms include Vittoria pod coffee machines, smart TVs with SONIFI STAYCAST™ for personal app streaming, free Wi-Fi, and SOAK superfood skincare amenities.
The well-positioned retreat will be New Zealand’s first new-build Holiday Inn hotel in a decade, unveiling ‘Open Lobby’ — a dynamic reimagining of the traditional hotel lobby. Think laid-back living room vibes and a flexible, open space to recharge and relax. A place where you can cosy up by the fireplace with a pinot from nearby Central Otago, enjoy local produce at Giants Restaurant and Bar, or watch sunset unfold over the mountain peaks. Glorious.
The hotel joins a vibrant multi-use retail, resort, residential, and recreational precinct in Frankton and is just 30 minutes from The Remarkables ski area. Serious about snow? Fuel up at the hotel’s Rolling Giants to-go Café in the morning and stash your ski gear in the secure drying room at day’s end. Very handy. You’ll also have scenic trails for running, walking, and biking easily accessible from the hotel.
For a Queenstown ski trip or New Zealand driving holiday, this promises to be a top spot for connecting with the epic landscapes of the South Island.
