Te Arikinui: a new 5-star hotel
To be developed in partnership with Tainui Group Holdings, Te Arikinui will be a 5-star hotel operated by AccorHotels under its Pullman brand. It will complement the airport’s existing 4.5-star Novotel hotel and 2.5-star ibis budget hotel and provide further quality accommodation choices for travellers. Te Arikinui’s 250 rooms and premium facilities will be located directly adjacent to the international terminal. The luxury hotel is scheduled to open around 2021.
Te Arikinui was the chiefly title chosen by the late Māori Queen, Dame Te Atairangikaahu. As a key architectural landmark within the airport, the hotel’s unique cultural design elements will contribute significantly to the authentic, New Zealand experience for airport visitors and hotel guests.
