Hilton renames property in Queenstown, New Zealand

Two years after its opening, Hilton Queenstown is re-establishing itself as Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa.

Hilton has four properties spread throughout New Zealand, with the Queenstown location being the only resort and spa. Situated at the foothills of the Remarkables mountain range, the property is a jumping off point for skiing and snowboarding in the winter and exploring hiking and biking trails in the summer, as well as the numerous adventure sports in the surrounding area, including Bungee Jumping, which began in New Zealand.

Guestrooms have a schist fireplace, lounge suite, work desk, balcony or terrace, floor to ceiling windows and king-size Hilton Serenity bed. The bathroom offers two basins, separate bath and walk in shower and luxurious Peter Thomas Roth amenities. Guestrooms have village or mountain views.

The property also has an eforea spa. New Zealand designer Chan Andreassend created the ceramic lights, which emit a soft glow highlighting the etched symbols of Pacific culture. The earthy tones of the walls and the smoked oak wooden floors are in tune with Queenstown’s position in the middle of the Southern Alps.

The hotel offers seven flexible pillarless meeting suites, pre-function areas and indoor and outdoor breakout spaces. Also offered is wireless Internet connectivity throughout the hotel and a fully equipped Business Center.

The resort is located five minutes from Queenstown International Airport, and is a 15-minute drive or eight-minute water taxi ride into the center of Queenstown.
