The new hotel on the corner of Nelson and Wellesley Streets will have 180-200 rooms pending final design, a gym, a rooftop bar, and a separate restaurant and bar. It is scheduled to open in summer 2019-2020. Auckland based founder and CEO of Sudima Hotels, Sudesh Jhunjhnuwala, says the CBD development is a significant addition to the company’s portfolio in a sought-after location. ‘The area around our site has been extensively developed in recent years and is now a hub for hospitality, entertainment, events and major conferences, so we are looking forward to introducing a new accommodation choice for leisure and corporate travellers who want a high level of service and comfort in a hotel with a focus on sustainability and social responsibility.’
The new Auckland CBD hotel will be single-use plastic free upon its opening in alignment with the company’s goal to be single use plastic free across its entire portfolio by 2020. The new Auckland CBD property will welcome a mix of leisure, corporate, conference and government visitors. Before the hotel opens, Sudima Hotels will have unveiled a rebrand across its properties.
