Let's Travel - - NEW ZEALAND | QUEENS TOWN - Www.eichardts.com

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. Air­lines in­clud­ing Air New Zealand, Qan­tas, Vir­gin and Jet­star fly di­rect to Queen­stown from ma­jor ports in Aus­tralia and New Zealand. Eichardt’s ac­com­mo­da­tion starts from NZ$1,250 per night for one-bed­room apart­ments and NZ$1,700 for Ho­tel suites. P: + 64 3 441 0450 E: [email protected]
