New Zealand: The launch of Radisson Collection in Queenstown forms part of the group’s expansion of brands in the country.
Located on the corner of Brecon Street and Man Street, the boutique hotel is scheduled to open in quarter one of 2022.
Its 61 guest rooms will include studios, suites, corner suites, and a penthouse.
The onsite restaurant is said to showcase fresh local and seasonal produce. Other amenities include a spa.
Katerina Giannouka, president, Asia Pacific at Radisson Hotel Group, said: “With its dramatic scenery, cosmopolitan vibe and wealth of activities, Queenstown is one of New Zealand’s most alluring destinations. Nestled in the heart of the CBD, the new Radisson Collection hotel will allow guests to discover the spirit of this dynamic city, with its friendly atmosphere and alfresco lifestyle.”
The hotel will be developed by Augusta – a property fund manager with two billion NZD of assets across New Zealand and Australia.
“We are delighted to work with Radisson Hotel Group, one of the world’s most renowned and respected hospitality companies. This is an exciting opportunity to bring the Radisson Collection to New Zealand for the first time; this brand is perfectly suited to Queenstown and the project is set to elevate the standard of top-tier accommodation in the city,” said Mark Francis, founder of Augusta Capital.
“Queenstown is a thriving economic centre and airport passenger numbers, guest nights and annual visitor spend has continued to grow over the past five years. Ongoing sector growth is expected and our strategic collaboration with Radisson Hotel Group places us well to capitalise on this,” he added.
Radisson also recently announced plans to open its first Radisson Blu, Radisson RED, and Park Inn by Radisson in New Zealand.
