Sofitel Auckland gets chic French makeover

Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour is officially reopening, following a swanky makeover that shows off its French heritage.

Overlooking Waitemata Harbour, the hotel’s new look seeks to immerse guests in timeless French flair with modern execution with elaborate ceiling art, Louis XVI inspired furnishings and modernist sculptures.

“Like the ateliers of Paris, every space is a treasure house of partisanship,” said the hotel’s general manager Stephen Gould.

We’re proud to welcome locals and visitors to Auckland to journey through the hotel to experience its beautiful, elegant and stylish new look.”

The hotel’s new features also include Club Millésime, a range of luxury extras for guests reserving the hotel’s rooms and suites. Club Millésime features a lounge retreat embellished in decorative art and is the setting for exclusive breakfasts, afternoon tea, evening drinks and canapés.

Its food and drink offerings also boast a classic French Je ne sais quoi, with La Marée; a restaurant helmed by a Michelin starred chef, French Press; a cafe modelled off Paris’ iconic sidewalk cafes and Sabrage; and a champagne bar boasting dramatic sabrage experiences.

The new-look Sofitel Spa also offers clients a place of wellbeing with the exclusive offering of French skincare line Biologique Recherche.

In celebration of the reopening, Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour is offering rates starting from NZ$399 ($367) per night in a Superior room.
