Whisk Yourself Away for a Kiwi Adventure with First Class Deals and Luxury Auckland Resorts
Adventure-seekers have long trekked to New Zealand for thrilling experiences, from “black water” rafting down the Waitomo Caves to descending the 300-meter waterfalls of Sleeping God Canyon. Just because you're adventuring through the country doesn’t mean you have to forgo life’s luxuries, though, especially if you book comfy discounted business class seats to Auckland and top-rated hotels in Aotearoa’s biggest city. Here are some of our favorite luxury Auckland hotels:
Located in the city center, the Rydges is the newest luxury hotel in the city. Spacious and well-appointed rooms are classically luxurious and feature breathtaking views of the iconic Sky Tower or Waitemata Harbour. While many of Auckland’s finest restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel, guests won’t have to leave the property to find world-class eats. The hotel is home to The CUT on Federal, featuring fresh, local produce and a delectable signature Chateaubriand.
SkyCity Grand Hotel
Resting your weary head is the ultimate pleasure at SkyCity, thanks to a diverse pillow menu gives guests a choice of nine different pillows. That’s just the beginning of the luxurious accommodations, though, since SkyCity also equips rooms with 55-inch plasma televisions, rain-head showers and Puriri Extract exclusive toiletries.
Tasty bites are available 24-hours a day with hotel room service, or guests can dine at one of the hotel’s three superb restaurants. Guests can also relax in the hotel’s day spa or test their luck in the property’s casino. A lucky win may just inspire you to take a last minute first class detour to Sydney for a different type of adventure.
Mollie’s Boutique Hotel
Travelers can find a more personalized luxury experience at this Victorian boutique hotel located on Auckland's St. Mary’s Bay. Graciously furnished, the hotel is known for its spectacular view of the city skyline and cheerful Kiwi hospitality. The hotel’s 10 private suites are perfect for a romantic getaway or a luxury retreat, featuring either harbor, garden or city skyline views. Guests can also enjoy private luxury dining and day spa treatments.
The Langham Auckland
Close to the waterfront and the legendary Auckland Domain, the Langham is a luscious slice of heaven. Guests can rest a spell in the hotel's heated rooftop pool, Jacuzzi and sauna, or keep fit at the health center. Asian and Western dishes are made at eight interactive cooking stations at the hotel’s At Eight restaurant, and high tea is served at Palm Court. The Langham Club offers extra privileges such as butler service and edible treats throughout the day. With all of its luxuries, The Langham is the perfect transition between adventurous escapades and a discounted first class flight home.
