Queenstown’s first new hotel in 5 years – the Ramada Hotel & Suites Remarkables Park Queenstown – will open in an extension of the Remarkables Park town centre in June.
Part of the Wyndham Worldwide Corp hotel group, the world’s largest hotel company with more than 7800 hotels in 72 countries, the hotel will be the 6th property in the Ramada NZ portfolio and is scheduled to open in time for the American Express Queenstown Winter Festival starting on 24 June.
The 4-storey corporate & leisure hotel designed by Studio 37 Ltd (Gary Bickerton), Auckland, has 72 beds, 56 parking spaces (33 underground).
Safari Group (NZ) Ltd (Robert Neil & Stephen Taylor) has developed the all-suites hotel, which will offer a mix of 28 studios, 20 one-bedroom, 9 2-bedroom & 2 3-bedroom king apartments, all with ensuite bathrooms, full kitchens & laundry facilities.
Remarkables Park Ltd chief executive Alastair Porter said the hotel opening would be another milestone for the masterplanned development. He said other hoteliers were also interested, and the company intended to offer hotels in the range from 3-6 stars, from high street to resort locations and with water & mountain views.
