SkyCity Hotel Auckland
SkyCity Hotel, located right in the heart of vibrant Auckland and just steps away from the iconic Sky Tower is the perfect spot to get out and explore New Zealand’s largest multicultural city. Just look for the needle pointing up at the sky and you’ll never get lost.
A genuine welcome, along with good spacious rooms and the hub of the city on its doorstep make this a great choice for your city stay.
Facilities & Activities
This city hotel is all about location, while the hotel itself ticks all the holiday accommodation boxes, it is really the treats on the doorstep that will tempt you. The nearby SkyCity casino is an attraction in itself with 24 hour entertainment including live shows, a destination casino, a theatre and numerous cafes, restaurants and bars. Or if you’ve a head for heights then ride to the top of the iconic Sky Tower in its mesmerizing glass lifts and gaze at the 360 degree view from the top of New Zealand’s tallest man made structure. If just standing and staring isn’t enough then you could always take one of the Skywalks round the Pergola or just hurl yourself off the top with SkyJump. Exhilarating. Recover your senses (and nerves) with a drink at Orbit – and literally watch the world go round in the unique revolving restaurant set at the top.
Recover from the excitement of Sky Tower by booking East Day Spa through the concierge. Situated next to the hotel it is one of the countries biggest and most luxurious spas, renowned for its authentic Eastern holistic treatments. Centuries-old healing practices dissolve stress, relax the body, calm the soul, and clear the mind.
Or ask the hotel to book your trip to Waiheke Island, just a 35 minute ferry trip. Enjoy the pristine white beaches along with award winning wines and while away the afternoon overlooking the Hauraki Gulf from the gorgeous vineyard.
And of course, being right at the heart of Auckland means the city and all its attractions are within easy striking distance.
