Wellington: A Capital Place to Indulge

A Capital Place to Indulge

Wellington’s only international five star hotel, InterContinental Wellington, is putting the finishing touches on its multi-million dollar refresh with the third phase of The Lobby Lounge, Chameleon Restaurant and reception now open for guests.

Extensive upgrading was undertaken across all levels of the accommodation and Club InterContinental Lounge with the luxurious result being opened to guests earlier this year.

Completion of the latest phase means guests now enjoy a new sense of arrival within the redesigned reception.

Adjacent to reception is The Lobby Lounge, now a stylish and intimate space in which to enjoy a light meal or drink with friends and colleagues. The elegant cocktail lounge boasts a significant beverage list including some 144 different brands and types of spirits, served by passionate and knowledgeable mixologists.

The attentive hospitality continues when visiting diners have the opportunity to discover the secret that well-informed locals have long known when they experience the enticing combination of local cuisine expertise and the InterContinental 5 star service at Chameleon, the hotel’s signature restaurant.

The restaurant’s fresh decor provides the perfect backdrop for the new style of menu which encourages diners to indulge with a number of plates offering delicious flavours over the course of a meal.

With a dedication to incorporating sustainable products wherever possible, the Chameleon chef de cuisine Paul Limacher utilises local sources for the ingredients of seasonal menus, from organic salad greens and Eco-pork to fresh fish straight from the arrival jetty and organic chickens, topped off with hand-crafted treats created by the in-house pastry team.
Guests will also enjoy the newly-created sleek and relaxing Concierge area as they receive a wealth of tips and insider knowledge from the InterContinental Wellington award-winning Concierge team, whose single goal is to ensure the Wellington experience fits each and every individual.

The final phase – refurbishing the meeting rooms - will be completed January 2015.

As eighteen months’ remodelling work comes to fruition the new-look InterContinental Wellington is well worth a visit by the sophisticated traveller.
