Swiss-Belhotel International will expand its New Zealand portfolio via the upcoming launch of

(TRAVPR.COM) UAE - January 22nd, 2020 -  

Swiss-Belhotel International will expand its New Zealand portfolio via the upcoming launch of

two exciting Queenstown properties - ensuring that the popular tourist destination will keep

pace with increasing visitor numbers.

Swiss-Belhotel & Residences Queenstown and the younger, more value-conscious brand

Zest Queenstown by Swiss-Belhotel will be unveiled at the same time in the last quarter of

2020. It will be the brands’ New Zealand debut.

Swiss-Belhotel & Residences Queenstown will be ideal for travellers looking for

comprehensive and well-appointed international-standard facilities that are enhanced by

efficient, attentive service as well as comfort and security. The residences are designed to

meet the needs of extended-stay business and leisure travellers.

The vibrant Zest brand is a value hotel featuring modern facilities at an affordable price. It is

designed with the social traveller in mind and appeals to the young and the young at heart,

while providing state-of-the-art technology, comfort and security. Both properties will be

located on Gorge Road, 100 metres apart and a convenient 10-minute walk to the town


Mr. Gavin M. Faull, a New Zealander and the Chairman and President of Swiss-Belhotel

International, said the new properties “will offer something completely different to each other,

giving visitors more options when staying in the scenic town".

He said: “We’ve had a presence in Queenstown for the past six years through

Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak. And over this time we have developed a good sense of what

visitors demand from their hotel stays. The time felt right to expand our presence in the

region and launch two hotel brands that haven’t previously been available in New Zealand.”


Swiss-Belhotel International launched Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak in 2013. The Group

then expanded into Auckland in 2016 with the opening of Swiss-Belsuites Victoria Park,

followed by the acquisition of Swiss-Belsuites Pounamu Queenstown in 2017. The new

properties will increase the Group’s New Zealand footprint to five hotels.

Swiss-Belhotel & Residences will be a 4.5-star property featuring a full-service hotel and

furnished residences. The well-appointed facilities will comprise an architectural design that

combines modern and local aesthetics, contemporary interiors and furnishings, the latest

technology as well as food and beverage outlets and 24-hour services. The hotel will feature

194 rooms at 24 square metres and 32 apartments (one bedroom, 75-95 sq m, and two

bedrooms, 120-150 sq m).

Like all Zest properties (there are 10 in Indonesia), Zest Queenstown will emanate a young

and fun ambiance. It will be modern, inviting, bold and unique. The property’s construction is

being managed and developed by the Redwood Group and will feature 223 Zest rooms (16

sq m), 160 Pods (24 sq m sleeping capsules sleeping eight per unit) and communal

bathrooms. Large social facilities will be on-site, along with a 24-hour reception, dining areas

and seamless technology features throughout.

The new developments are part of the strategic expansion of Swiss-Belhotel International in

New Zealand, and will support growing tourism in the market.

Mr. Faull said the Group was in discussions with developers in Australia and would make

more announcements regarding hotel developments within the next six months. He added:

"We have real confidence in the tourism industry in New Zealand – particularly in

Queenstown, which requires new infrastructure to keep up with visitor demand. We are

committed to looking at further opportunities in the local market.”
