Sofitel is the luxury five-star brand of the Accor hotel group, with more than 180 Sofitel hotels and resorts in many of the world's most desirable locations.
A highlight of the Sofitel Queenstown is its signature restaurant 'Vie', which overlooks a stunning landscaped garden and tranquil waterfall. Vie is the domain of renowned Executive Chef Shane Watson, formerly of Palm Cove's Sea Temple Resort and Spa in Queensland.
The large and stylish deluxe hotel bedrooms, furnished by Auckland-based interior designer Megan Judd of Group CDA with a classic French twist, feature the incomparable Sofitel "MyBed", the first time the award-winning beds have been available in New Zealand. MyBed ushers in a whole new concept in rest, with a guarantee of plush softness.
All rooms and suites have sophisticated sound systems, wide screen plasma televisions in the bedrooms, bathrooms and lounges, and home theatre systems with a choice of CDs and DVDs.
"Without a doubt this is the most stunning property I have seen in New Zealand or Australia," said General Manager Mark Wilkinson. "The attention to detail on fitout is second to none."
Sofitel Queenstown sets the benchmark for exceptional luxury and service.
Sofitel is a beautiful boutique hotel with a fantastic feeling to it. It's right in the heart of town, it's elegant and stylish without being over the top, and thanks to the restaurants, bars and boutique retail it's a real meeting place and has a real buzz of its own.
Meetings, conference and incentive groups can take their pick of the most high tech meeting room in Queenstown. The Sofitel Queenstown boardroom caters for groups of up to 32 and features $70,000-worth of state of the art technology.
On the lobby level, tucked away behind a sweeping staircase and water feature and alongside the reception area, the Nue Lounge and champagne bar is a cosy haven for guests, locals and visitors.
Sofitel Queenstown features a fully equipped fitness centre, and an international day spa.
