Design led SO Sofitel Auckland set for October opening
Situated near the waterfront in Auckland’s Britomart precinct, the 130-room hotel will feature a French-inspired restaurant on the 15th floor, three bars, a spa, fitness centre and a 20-metre indoor heated pool.
SO Sofitel Auckland general manager Stephen Gould says the hotel will “shatter the conventional norms and become a must visit destination in Auckland for locals and visitors alike”.
“New Zealand’s tourism industry is benefitting from strong growth in outbound travel from traditional markets like Australia, USA and the UK. Overall the Asia Pacific region is also growing, particularly the Chinese market,” he said.
“We are positive about the future for hospitality in Auckland and we look forward to aiding the city’s ambitions of being a must-visit destination in the South Pacific.”
