Accor has opened the Pullman Rotorua, the first international five-star hotel in New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty region and a tourism mecca famous for its geothermal attractions.
Operated under Accor’s premium brand Pullman, 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,” Millar added.
The 130-room hotel offers guests panoramic views of the city and lake area and features a vibrant bar, gym plus an indulgent executive lounge experience.
Pullman Rotorua is the second Pullman hotel in New Zealand, joining the existing Pullman Auckland, and part of a network of more than 130 Pullman hotels and resorts worldwide. The new hotel is Accor’s 46th property in New Zealand.
An official opening ceremony to commemorate Pullman Rotorua’s launch is scheduled to take place in March 2020. Opening rates at the start from NZ$349 per room per night.
