The opening of Park Hyatt Auckland on September 15 looks set to liven up the upcoming Wynyard Quarter, a 36-hectare waterfront residential area overlooking the scenic Waitematā Harbour. Marking the debut of the Park Hyatt brand in New Zealand, the sprawling seven-story building looks set to become Auckland’s most luxurious property yet.
Guests can expect the signature Park Hyatt experience—with personalised service offered in a homely residential setting, while immersing themselves in the country’s rich Maori culture. The interiors, brought to life by Sydney-based designer Ali Reda from ar+d and local studio Bossley Architects, reflect the Maori concept of wharenui, which references a house as a gathering spot for families and communities.
Envisioned to showcase local heritage, the 195 guest rooms feature traditional Maori artwork, textiles made from local wool, as well as custom-made tukutuku screens. Other in-room amenities include deep-soaking tubs and plant-based toiletries from Le Labo. The building’s sliding mesh screens pays homage to the Maori cloak, while ouwhenua (carved wooden posts) sourced from endemic totara trees take pride of place at the hotel entrances.
Beyond the stunning rooms, the hotel also boasts a stellar line-up of four restaurants and bars. Signature restaurant Onemata showcases the finest local produce, with menu selections driven by seasonal ingredients, as well as the fishermen and farmers. Meanwhile, the Captain’s Bar serves classic cocktails with a local twist, alongside an extensive collection of fortitied spirits and thoughtful sharing platters.
