The 193-room property located in Auckland Airport Precinct will be operated under its award-winning Naumi brand and is slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2015. The acquisition of this two-hectare property marks the group's first foray into New Zealand, making it its first property with major meeting facilities that can accommodate MICE groups for up to 200 persons.
The yet-to-be-named hotel will be closed for an extensive renovation to be retrofitted into a contemporary and modern development much akin to its unique hotel concepts in Singapore. Room sizes start from 27 square metres and all guestrooms come attached with a balcony, while those on the first floor open up into the gardens. The rooms, public and F&B spaces will be extensively stripped and retrofitted with a new interior design and is slated to be opened in the fourth quarter of 2015.
“This is a very exciting project for us. It will allow us to develop the boutique Naumi brand into a full-fledge millennial hospitality brand with different product concepts,” says Mr Gaurang Jhunjhnuwala, Director at Naumi Hospitality. “With two award-winning hotels, Naumi Hotel and Naumi Liora in Singapore, this acquisition will be a big step forward and a testament to our group's drive towards the growth of Naumi Hospitality into leading markets.”
Located in the North Island of New Zealand, Auckland is the city with the largest and most populous urban area in the country. Voted “Top 10 Cities In The World” by Lonely Planet in its 2014 Best In Travel Awards, it is also the world's largest Polynesian city and a melting pot of cultures with a mix of European descendants, Maoris, Pacific Island descendants and a growing Asian population*.
