Eichardt’s Private Hotel
ichardt’s Private Hotel continues its gold rush, taking out the distinguished title of New Zealand’s Best Ski Boutique Hotel at the annual World Ski Awards, the third gong in as many months for the property.
Located on the sparkling shores of Queenstown’s Lake Wakatipu, the luxury hotel was presented the award at a glamourous black tie gala ceremony held in Kitzbühel, Austria, the home of the World Ski Awards.
Widely considered ‘the Oscars of the travel industry’, the World Ski Awards is the sister organisation of the World Travel Awards, currently celebrating its 21st anniversary and acknowledges exceptional success in the ski tourism industry.
Eichardt’s Private Hotel owner, Andrew Cox, said the internationally-recognised award was an exceptional honour and reward for their commitment to excellence.
“We are truly honoured to be recognised by our industry peers, along with the public, as the best ski boutique hotel in the world. Eichardt’s is a special property with an obvious affinity with the ski community. We’re proud our dedication to providing top service to our discerning guests - both on and off piste - has been recognised.”
Eichardt’s Private Hotel General Manager, James Cavanagh, adds, “We are humbled to have won New Zealand’s Best Ski Boutique Hotel for a second consecutive year. The team can all take a bow in delivering unprecedented levels of service across all facets of our suite, apartment, private residence, bar and parlour offerings.”
“Queenstown is undoubtedly one of the top ski destinations in the world, and the team has done well to create an inimitable experience for this market, whether it be heli-skiing, guided night skis or a full package concierge service complete with gourmet picnic.”
World Ski Awards Managing Director, Sion Rapson, launched the World Ski Awards in 2013 with the aim to drive up standards within the ski industry and reward the organisations that are leaders in their field.
“Ski tourism creates a dynamic division in the global travel and tourism marketplace. The World Ski Awards was established in response to overwhelming demand from the ski industry for a programme that was fair and transparent.” Eichardt’s is located at 2 Marine Parade, in the centre of the township and 8km from Queenstown airport.
