The Park Hyatt Auckland has been one of the most anticipated hotels in the Oceanic region for some time. I’m happy to write not about a delay, but rather the hotel will be opening sooner rather than later. The hotel will not only be one of the biggest luxury brands in the area but will also be the first Hyatt property in New Zealand.
The property was first announced to the public way back in 2014, and it was projected to first open its doors in 2017. But like most new hotels being constructed, the opening date was delayed several times.
The hotel started to cost a lot more than initially planned, and it got to the point where extra construction workers had to be flown in to try and finish the project quicker.
The original announcement stated that the property would cost $200 million but in the more recent years has been brought up to $300 million and might even be more.
The hotel opened bookings a few months ago, but interestingly the dates started a few days into March, but this has been pushed forward to the 1st of March 2020. LATTE Luxury News also confirms that the hotel will indeed open on the 1st of March.
The hotel is a category five property which will require 20,000 points for a one-night award stay. At this time, it looks like you’re unfortunately not able to make points + cash bookings.
The hotel will house a total of 195 rooms over 13 categories as well as high-end amenities like a day spa, 25-meter infinity pool and range 4 of bars and restaurants.
Rooms at the hotel are starting at a hefty $615 AUD, but that’s to be expected considering it is a luxury brand. Besides the Sofitel or Hilton, this will be the best option for travellers wanting a little bit more luxe.

I for one am excited about this property and am glad that the wait for its opening will soon be over. The hotel is big news for Auckland as it will really be one of the few luxury chain properties in the city. It’ll be interesting to see how popular the hotel is and if any competitors possibly look at expanding as well.
