Accor_Hotels_logoLandmark luxury Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour has completed an extensive $2 million refurbishment of its rooms and suites, exclusively transforming the hotel to embody an elegant and modern Parisian style.


Under the command of local interior designers Space Studio, all guestrooms have received a complete makeover to both infuse a delicate French flavour as well as reflect the hotel’s idyllic location overlooking the marina and serene Auckland waterfront.


Sofitel New Zealand’s Area General Manager, Wouter de Graaf said: “We are delighted to unveil our elegant new ‘magnifique’ guestrooms to provide our highly discerning guests the next tier of luxury and high-class accommodation in Auckland’s waterfront.”


On entering the rooms, guests will be immersed in a breathtaking whirlwind of colours, textures and sensory experiences evoked by the decor’s understated glamour. Relaxing shades of silver-grey, pastel blue and taupe hues, complemented by soft lighting and exquisite furnishings, reflect the cool-calm marina setting.


The rooms are bathed in natural daylight and the feather-soft, buttoned velvet headboards and plush cushions, add another touch of luxury to the hotel’s signature King Sofitel MyBed™. At dusk, the room’s ambient lighting and stunning views of water and sails creates a magical setting for guests to explore Auckland’s vibrant nightlife.


“Our aim was for a more feminine look and a colour palette that drew its tonal cues from the French heritage of the brand,” says Creative Director of Space Studio, Vee Kessner. “We wanted to add elements of luxury along with aspects of our modern Kiwi aesthetic.”New French influences in the rooms include the addition of the distinctive paisley pattern made fashionable in Europe by Empress Josephine, who amassed a collection of over 400 paisley shawls.The renovation of the guest rooms follows a soft refurbishment of the lobby as well as the recent launch of exclusive and intimate French inspired wine venue – The Cellar.
