Whether you’re after an urban adventure, a fly-by airport locale, or a tranquil mountain escape – you’ll find a Rydges Hotels & Resorts room to suit any type of New Zealand getaway.
In the heart of Auckland, Rydges is just steps from the Sky Tower and bustling city life. But through the doors is an oasis of spacious guest rooms, the renowned The CUT Restaurant, and the Lounge Bar, which is the perfect place to unwind and refuel after a busy day.
Urbanites will also find luxury in the Garden City at Rydges Latimer Christchurch. The Penthouse Suite is a signature highlight with breath-taking views from the fifth level, plus Bloody Mary’s and Hugh’s Whisky Library are the perfect spots to indulge in locally sourced meats or a late-night tipple.
Three Rydges retreats dot the “coolest little capital city’, including the flagship Rydges Wellington. Positioned perfectly for the leisure traveler, it offers harbour views and an easy walk to the waterfront. It’s surrounded by stylish shops and trendy restaurants – that is if you can look past the award-winning Portlander Bar and Grill located in the hotel.
For those seeking a more historic neighbourhood, Thorndon Hotel Wellington is tucked just behind the Beehive, overlooking the iconic Wellington hills. The tree-lined streets surrounding the hotel give it a more suburban feel, but you’re just a short stroll from the action of the iconic government precinct and Lambton Quay.
Jet-setting? Rydges Wellington Airport offers direct access to the newly redeveloped passenger lounge. Plane spotters need not worry about losing sleep over the sound of jet engines – the Hush Glass triple-glazed windows signal a sound snooze, even in close proximity to the runway. From here, hop into holiday mode and head for lakeside bliss in Rotorua or Queenstown.
Rydges Rotorua is the perfect base to explore the geothermal wonderland and famous redwood forests. Ideal for families, it boasts the largest guest rooms in town and most rooms have their very own spa bath for ultimate relaxation.
Further south in Queenstown, Rydges stands on the shores of Lake Wakatipu, offering stunning views of the Remarkables. A true standout is Bazaar restaurant, a gastronomic playground with everything from live grill stations, to epic charcuterie spreads, and a dessert display to die for. Stroll to the town centre for even more shopping and dining options, or get your heart racing in the adrenaline capital of New Zealand.
Whether you’re hitting the ski slopes in Queenstown, staycationing in Auckland, or on business in Wellington, Rydges has a range of prime locations with top-notch culinary destinations, in room dining options and amenities to suit every traveller. So where will it be?
