The popular North Island destination of Rotorua in New Zealand has a new premium hotel with the opening of the Pullman Rotorua by Accor, New Zealand’s largest hospitality operator.
It is first international five-star hotel to open in the Bay of Plenty region – famous for its geothermal attractions.
The new-build hotel provides guests with a choice of five accommodation options - superior king rooms, superior twin rooms, deluxe rooms, deluxe twin rooms and executive suites.
“We are so excited to open the doors of the Pullman Rotorua and build on our already established presence in the region, delivering the destination its first true five-star accommodation experience,” said Senior Vice President Operations for Accor New Zealand, Fiji and French Polynesia, Gillian Millar.
"Pullman Rotorua is perfectly suited for travellers, especially families, couples and business leaders looking for a world-class stay and a touch of luxury in one of the country’s most attractive tourist destinations.
“The city has beautiful forests and lakes for mountain biking, lugeing and water sports, spas for relaxation and wellness, and renowned geothermal attractions.
"No matter what visitors are in Rotorua to experience, we’re in the centre of it all at the Pullman and we’re addressing a need at the top end of the market, which wasn’t being met before.”
The 130-room hotel offers guests panoramic views of the city and lake area and features a bar, gym and executive lounge.
The Pullman’s modern brasserie, Barrel & Co Bar and Grill. is set around an open kitchen. It has a focus on locally sourced produce, a premium grill selection and an impressive craft beer and local wine menu.
In addition, Pullman Rotorua provides conference facilities including four private event spaces for 120 people theatre-style, and a boardroom/private dining room catering to a diverse range of business event needs.
The new hotel is Accor’s 46th property in New Zealand and the group’s fourth in the ‘Geyser City’ joining the Peppers on the Point Rotorua, Novotel Rotorua Lakeside and the ibis Rotorua.
Opening rates at the new Pullman Rotorua start from NZ$349 per room per night.
