Heading over the ditch for an end-of-year getaway? There's a new place to add to your must-visit list. Opening its doors after much anticipation, the new SO/ Auckland is sure to impress couples exploring the North Island. With bold design and an array of exciting dining options, the hotel promises a truly memorable stay.
Taking inspiration from Auckland's volcanic landscape, renowned Kiwi fashion innovator WORLD has added their flair to SO/ Auckland. Guests can choose their room design style from Vapour, Liquid and Solid in all SO Cozy, SO Comfy, SO Club and SO Studio rooms. All boast sumptuous furnishings, fantastic technology and their own unique look.
Perfect for a glamorous city escape, a range of impressive dining options call the hotel home, including a rooftop bar (feature image) with breathtaking Waitemata Harbour and Rangitoto Island views. A stand-out option, though, is SO/ Auckland Harbour Society, where guests can taste cuisine from French chef Marc De Passorio (former owner of the Michelin-stared L'Espirit de la Violette). De Passorio says the destination is idyllic for gourmands. "In 2012, I visited New Zealand for the first time and fell in love with the country; the fantastic produce and wine as well as the amazing scenery wherever you go, fresh air and generous, friendly people," says De Passorio.
An innovative spa add to SO/ Auckland's list of enticing features, offering treatments like Himalayan detox therapy and Tibetan sound healing.
