Naumi Hotels, the Singapore-based design hotel group, is excited to launch Naumi Auckland Airport as its first location in New Zealand, as part of wider expansion plans in Australasia and internationally. Set to officially open on 1st February 2018.
A game-changer in the surrounding area and in Auckland as a whole, Naumi Auckland Airport brings a refuge from the predictable and joins Naumi Hotel Singapore and Naumi Liora Singapore as the third property by the award-winning group. Located in the airport precinct, south of the city center and just minutes from the international and domestic airports, the hotel offers a perfect stylish stopover for leisure and business travellers.
The site features 193 spacious rooms and suites offering private patios and balconies, an outdoor swimming pool, a perfectly manicured English garden, restaurant and bar, fully equipped gym and over 500 sqm of conference and meeting space – incorporating the signature Naumi comforts and idiosyncratic design and personalised, service the brand is known for.
Mr Gaurang Jhunjhnuwala (main picture), CEO of Naumi Hotels Australia and New Zealand shares, “Naumi Hotel is anything but a cookie-cutter hotel brand, moving away from the sterile and the impersonal by offering micro, bespoke experiences for every guest.”
Art plays a central role at Naumi Auckland Airport, with an impressive gallery of works embellishing the hotel from the entrance through to each and every guest room. Featured artists include Belynda Henry, an Australian-based artist and winner of the NSW Wynne prize, who has been commissioned to capture the natural landscape of Auckland with multi-sensory pieces showcased in the hotel lobby and New Zealand-based designer Judi Bagust whose whimsical signature brush strokes are reminiscent of the particular song of the tui bird and compliment the landscapes.
Gaurang further adds, “The hotel is designed to create ‘sweet spots’ that are aesthetically pleasing and mentally stimulating, through the unexpected and a sense of theatre.”
Rooms and Suites
The 193 guest rooms come in four variations – Habitat, Oasis, Blush and designer themed suites, each designed in colour palettes again evoking the multi-coloured iridescent sheen of the Tui bird’s feathers. Natural earth tones, rich materials and crisp white linen combine with these tones to create
Rooms have a total of 10 power points that allow guests the flexibility to power their requisite gadgets, and free no bandwidth restriction fibre-optic wifi, in built bed-side USB Slots and 50” Smart LED TVs with Netflix streaming come as standard. Bathrooms feature premium SOAK superfood skincare products, and are lined with tiles in a Herringbone pattern inspired by the Tui’s feathers.
Meetings & Events
With over 500 sqm of meeting space, Naumi Auckland Airport sets the new bar for meetings and events in Auckland. With names such as Razzle-Dazzle, Oomph and Zing, meeting rooms can be dressed for serious business, formal events or fun spaces for more relaxed events. The pool-side Marquee or Naumi Gardens add the option of meetings outdoors amongst the fresh air.
Naumi Hotels will be opening additional properties in Sydney on George Street (2019) and other cities in Australia and New Zealand to be announced shortly.
