Nestled next to the lake just 5 minutes from Wanaka Township, the Wanaka Boutique Hotel is an excellent opportunity to invest into a project within New Zealand’s most popular tourist market. Member of the New Zealand Boutique Hotels Group, Wanaka Boutique Hotel is an exciting opportunity for investors to take part in what is already a booming tourist industry – and one which is only set to grow.
“Wasn’t the global financial crisis marvelous for producing opportunities. During the GFC Equinox was left with a consented , pre sold (to oversees investors) 50 room hotel development in Wanaka. Clearly that could not be built and thank goodness otherwise another 50 investors would be owning hotel rooms in NZ hotels which they received little or no return and no chance for years of getting back the original off the plans price !!!
After 5 years sitting on land and literally twiddling our thumbs, we came up with New Zealand Boutique Hotels as a gap in the market providing oversized luxurious hotel rooms at reasonable prices. Currently in top tourists spots you pay $200 or so a night for very average rooms or $1000 plus for a luxury lodge . We decided $300 to $400 a night was reasonable for a small boutique well located luxury hotel room.
So with that in mind we designed Wanaka Boutique Hotel, 20 contemporary modern , plush rooms in the style of a High Country sheep station…elements of concrete, old wood, corrugated iron and stone. Yes you are thinking it will be John Wayne meets vivace ….but do give us some credit…we have previously constructed White Heron , the ultra luxurious Auckland apartment block.”
So from September 2015 you will have somewhere new in Wanaka to stay. Tell everyone!!!
We are also working on the second NZ Boutique Hotel in Auckland plus the first New Zealand full time dedicated wellness and luxury health retreat close to Auckland. Contact us if you want to work on these exciting projects.
