Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour 

This stylish and modern hotel overlooks the marina and is right in the heart of Auckland Central.

Set between the Viaduct Harbour and the vibrant Wynyard Quarter, the Sofitel offers an elegant base in New Zealand’s largest city. Admire the sleek yachts in the harbour as you stroll along the waterfront to one of the seafood restaurants to sample delicious local specialities such as snapper and crayfish. The iconic Sky Tower can be seen from the hotel, and downtown Auckland’s main strip, Queen Street is just a 20-minute walk away. Make the most of the waterfront setting by visiting the nearby Maritime Museum, booking a thrilling jet boat tour or heading out on a whale and dolphin safari for the chance to spot these majestic creatures in the wild.

Back at the hotel you can enjoy leisure facilities including an indoor heated lap pool, Jacuzzi, fitness centre and the So Spa which was voted Australia and Oceania’s Luxury Emerging Spa at the Luxury World Spa Awards 2016. The restaurant serves innovative regional cuisine with French flair and has a special low-calorie De-light menu as well as menus for veggies, children and gluten intolerant diners. Sip coffee and indulge in a French pastry at the 21 Viaduct Cafe offers which overlooks the harbour and head to the sophisticated bar to enjoy Champagne, cocktails and local wines.

The spacious rooms have been designed with comfort and style in mind. They feature elegant silver and aquamarine interiors, and floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise the views. Superior Rooms overlook the city and it’s worth upgrading to a Luxury Room Marina View for views over the water or a Junior Suite for extra space and a Juliet balcony.
