Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbor
Auckland, New Zealand
Experience French ambience in a sophisticated setting at the 5-star Sofitel Auckland. With a coveted location on Viaduct Harbor in the heart of the city, this decidedly upscale hotel hosts guests with panache. Air-conditioned rooms are bathed in natural light with floor-to-ceiling windows. Each offers vibrant city or harbor views from your own private balcony. Appointed in soft neutral tones, rooms feature a host of deluxe amenities including Sofitel’s own ultra-comfortable trademarked beds, a 49-inch LED TV with Chromecast streaming services, free Wi-Fi, work desk, Nespresso coffee machine, mini bar and in-room safe. Oversized marble bathrooms feature a rain shower, deep soaking tub, bathrobes and slippers, and French bath toiletries.
Guests can enjoy fine dining with French flair at La Maree, or choose a more casual setting at French Press, offering classic Paris café culture with espresso, pastries, fresh-baked baguettes, and signature crepes on the menu. If you’re in the mood to relax over a glass of bubbly or a bespoke cocktail, the Sabrage Champagne Bar awaits.
Up on the roof, you’ll find two hives of industrious Apis mellifera – honeybees that fly off to nearby Victoria Park and neighboring leafy suburbs to collect a wide variety of pollen and nectar. The honey is used by the kitchen team in sweet treats for guests to enjoy.
Time permitting, indulge in a treatment at the Sofitel Spa, featuring products from prestigious French brands such as Biologique Recherche.
