A classic hotel with a quiet setting just outside of the city centre, a reputation for excellence and a rooftop pool.

Formerly The Langham, Auckland, this award-winning hotel provides a sophisticated base in the ‘City of Sails’ and is known for its timeless elegance and impeccable service. It’s just south of the city centre and within walking distance of shops, restaurants and local attractions such as the Auckland Art Gallery and the Sky Tower. A free shuttle departs regularly from the hotel to the waterfront and you can either burn off some calories with the uphill walk back or catch a ride home until around 9pm.

Keep up with your fitness at the state-of-the-art fitness gym, relax in the Jacuzzi and take a dip in the heated rooftop pool. The excellent Chuan Spa offers treatments inspired by traditional Chinese medicine, and the Chuan Tri-bathing Ritual which is designed to loosen any tight muscles and calm the mind. Experience different temperatures as you bathe under a warm shower, invigorate your skin with a bracing ice experience, and relax in the aromatic herbal steam room.

Eight Restaurant offers a unique dining experience with eight interactive kitchens each serving fresh and delicious cuisine including grilled dishes, a seafood bar, curries, Asian-inspired noodles, sushi, and indulgent desserts – dip marshmallows or fruit in the chocolate fountain for a sweet treat. The Lobby Lounge is a sophisticated venue for light meals, fine Champagnes and innovative cocktails. Plush velvet chairs and a glistening chandelier set the scene for the signature High Tea by Cordis where you can enjoy savoury macarons, fluffy scones, tartlets and cakes accompanied by a selection of specially blended teas.

Each of the rooms feature Cordis' signature ‘Dream Bed’, free Wi-Fi and views over the street, the city skyline or the leafy Auckland Domain. Superior Rooms are set on the floors 1-4, Deluxe Rooms are on floors 5-8 and Executive Rooms are on floors 9-10. The latter also include access to the exclusive Cordis Club Lounge on level 10 which offers benefits including breakfast in the club lounge, a selection of afternoon tea treats, pre-dinner drinks and canapés, and butler service. A range of spacious suites with Club Lounge access is also available.
