Wellington Welcomes Back Sofitel

Wellington Welcomes Back Sofitel

To both locals’ and travellers’ delight, Wellington’s decadent Sofitel will reopen its doors in October, following a temporary hiatus.

Wellington welcomes back the original Sofitel team, along with the hotel’s top grill restaurant Jardin Grill, the Green Room lounge, and Sofitel’s exquisite 5-Star rooms and suites.

The 129-room, 14-storey hotel is returning to its original status as the capital’s favourite destination for business and leisure travellers, nestled between Wellington’s iconic landmarks The Beehive and the Botanical Gardens.

The hotel’s design flawlessly blends local flair with French heritage through a botanical inspired décor which is influenced by the gardens of Wellington and the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris.

Stephen Gould, Sofitel Wellington’s General Manager, says the Sofitel’s return has been highly anticipated.

“The team and I are excited to reopen our doors and pick up where we left off; offering Wellington locals, Kiwi travellers and tourists alike a place to relax and enjoy themselves in a refined environment with a sophisticated ambience.”

“It is important for us to resume our reputation where guests come first. Also, to remain as a destination buzzing with activity. We’ve got some great things planned for our welcome back including stimulating talks, live music, and culinary events,” he says.

With a wine list curated by New Zealand’s premiere wine authority John Saker, and menu designed by culinary star Royxeenn Giam – the Jardin Grill promises to be a staple with locals and travellers alike.

True to its theme, the restaurant is beautifully set amongst floral frescoes. Its imaginative menu is based upon the grill, expanding the offerings from large to small plates.

The Green Room lounge and bar lives up to its name with Bolton Street’s verdant gardens, viewable through expansive floor to ceiling glass walls.

Sofitel Wellington is the third Sofitel in New Zealand, joining its award-winning sister properties Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour and Sofitel Queenstown Hotel & Spa. Guests enjoy beautifully-appointed rooms and suites in vintage gold and bronze tones with indulgent rain showers, complimentary wifi for multiple devices, Smart TVs with Bluetooth, the So Fit gymnasium and three meeting and event venues.

Sofitel Wellington is now bookable on and for stays from 9 October 2017. Room rates start from $NZD 269 per room per night.
