Park Hyatt Auckland
Conran and Partners
The new Park Hyatt is located along Auckland’s waterfront, offering spectacular views out across Lighter Basin and beyond. The hotel includes four restaurants and bars, flexible event spaces, a spa, swimming pool and gym. The building is designed by Singapore based AR+D in collaboration with Auckland-based Bossley Architects, who also partnered with Conran and Partners on the interiors. The approach has been inspired by Auckland Harbour’s strong sense of place and the hotel’s close relationship to the vibrant city’s urban grain. The design draws upon New Zealand’s rich natural beauty and its strong multicultural heritage, while delivering a distinctive sense of luxury evident in every aspect of the hotel’s operations. Guests are welcomed by a striking reception area which takes them from an intimate space to a dramatic full-height atrium, revealing the hotel’s architecturally striking open corridors and central courtyards. Dining and function spaces include The Pantry, a casual ground floor eatery with a dramatic, full-height atrium space; Onemata, which features an open kitchen and benefits from spectacular views out over the harbour; The Captain’s Bar, a contemporary take on a harbourside pub but layered with Park Hyatt’s sophistication and a cosy fireplace; The Boathouse, a nautical function space; a rooftop bar and function space and an array of event spaces on the first floor. The 195 guest rooms are inspired by nautical references with a warm palette of timber and fabrics and furniture in-built as if on a yacht.
