Vacations & Travel - - Tried & Tested - By Lana Bo­gunovich cordisho­tels.com/en/auck­land

Hav­ing re­cently com­pleted an ex­ten­sive re­fur­bish­ment, Auck­land’s iconic up­scale ho­tel The Lang­ham has re­branded, be­com­ing the Lang­ham Hos­pi­tal­ity Group’s first Cordis Ho­tel in the Pa­cific re­gion. Cen­trally lo­cated on Sy­monds Street, the Cordis Auck­land is just a stone’s throw from ma­jor at­trac­tions, beau­ti­ful parks, sev­eral shop­ping, din­ing and en­ter­tain­ment precincts, bustling nightlife and Waitem­ata Har­bour.

Inside the ho­tel, the beau­ti­ful lobby with its enor­mous sparkling chan­de­lier and ad­ja­cent bar serv­ing high teas evokes a feel­ing of grandeur and old-world lux­ury. There are 411 gue­strooms with eight dif­fer­ent room types, rang­ing from Su­pe­rior Room to Chairman Suite. Our Stu­dio Suite with kitch­enette fea­tures an open-plan lay­out with well-equipped kitchen, din­ing and lounge area com­plete with flat-screen TV. The sep­a­rate king-sized bed­room has an ad­join­ing en­suite com­plete with large tub and walk-in shower. El­e­gant yet re­laxed, this is a com­fort­able suite for fam­i­lies, and those that ap­pre­ci­ate ex­tra space and in­de­pen­dence.

In ad­di­tion to a range of gen­er­ously spaced and stylishly ap­pointed ac­com­mo­da­tion, the Cordis Auck­land also fea­tures a rooftop swim­ming pool, Jacuzzi, 24-hour gym, the award-win­ning Chuan Spa (a must-do) and two restau­rants, in­clud­ing the ex­cep­tional Eight Restau­rant, which of­fers a dy­namic din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence through its eight in­ter­ac­tive kitchens show­cas­ing a va­ri­ety of in­ter­na­tional flavours.
