Choice Hotels Expand to the Far North

Choice Hotels have extended their national reach with the addition of an impressive property in Tutukaka in the top half of the North Island.

Quality Hotel Oceans Tutukaka (formerly Oceans Resort Hotel Tutukaka) has joined the Choice Hotels group offering accommodation on the Northland East Coast. The area was recently voted the second best coast line destination in the world by National Geographic.

The hotel is perched on the edge of the renowned Tutukaka Marina with most rooms afforded views of the marina and the ocean through the Tutukaka Headlands.

Just two and a half hours north of Auckland, 30 minutes from Whangarei and an hour and a half from Paihia in the Bay of Islands, the hotel is an ideal base for travellers to explore the Upper North Island of New Zealand.

The three star property boasts 23 stylish hotel rooms featuring a super-king size bed (that can be reconfigured as comfortable twin beds), and ensuite bathrooms with bath and shower. Additionally the property has two-bedroom apartment suites with ensuite bathrooms and separate spacious living areas.

Guests at Quality Hotel Oceans Tutukaka have use of the heated salt water swimming pool surrounded by subtropical bush, an onsite gym and barbecue area. The property offers two meeting venues which cater for groups of up to 180 delegates, making it the perfect choice for memorable weddings, conferences or functions.

The onsite restaurant, Oceans, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week serving award winning dishes from a seafood focused a la carte menu.

General managers, Sarah and Steve Shields, have 45 years combined experience in hospitality, working in and managing hotels and resorts around Australasia. They are both strongly involved in the local community with Sarah being a first officer at the local St John Station and Steve skippering for the Tutukaka Coastguard.

Quality Hotel Oceans Tutukaka is focused on giving back to the local community by running or sponsoring a number of community events including Sunday markets and the annual Santa parade.

Choice Hotels’ development manager NZ, Julie Carcaterra, is pleased to welcome this idyllic property to the Choice Hotels portfolio.

“We’re delighted to add a Northland property to our offering across New Zealand,” says Carcaterra. “Quality Hotel Oceans Tutukaka is an impressive property in a superb location overlooking the marina with a variety of room types to suit every guest. This is an exciting addition to our growing NZ portfolio and we look forward to working with Sarah and Steve.”
