With International jet-setters always on the hunt for new and exciting destinations to see and explore, Queenstown New Zealand is quickly becoming the hub for ultra-wealthy travellers. And the newly re-developed Eichardt’s Private Hotel, Queenstown proves to be taking this idea of offering a “bespoke experience” to new heights with the recent opening of its latest $10,000 a night Penthouse.


Launching a complete revamp to the 150-year-old historic Hotel, late last year, Eichardt’s launched New Zealand’s most exclusive hotel suite, “The Penthouse”.  With 240sqm of open plan living space and 180 degree views over Queenstown’s Lake Wakatipu, the abode is without doubt the ultimate holiday pad for both families and couples.


Offering complete privacy to discerning guests, the $10,000 NZD a night penthouse offers easy access via a private elevator and lobby allowing high-profile guests to remain unnoticed whilst staying within the residence. Enjoying an expansive terrace with outdoor dining, Jacuzzi and Sauna, the suite enables guests the ability to entertain friends and family in complete discretion and comfort. Oozing elegance and charm, the small scale hotel proves to offer a unique edge within the crowded hospitality sector, going against the tide, delivering a world-class level of service where guests feel at home, due to the personalised service and name to name recognition offered by the hotel staff. It is these small luxuries that make the hotel truly unique. 


Apart of “The Imperium Collection” a series of boutique hotels owned by New-Zealand Native Andrew Cox, he believes that within such a unique location, the Extreme Sporting Capital of New Zealand is rapidly becoming a mecca for the Uber rich. “We’re preparing for a new class of ultra-high net worth guests” he explains. “The Penthouse is a calculated reflection of Eichardt’s’ history as well as the natural beauty and distinctive energy of the region.”


Enjoying a 24/7 butler service, private chauffeured Land Rover, whisky bar and unique experiences offered in conjunction with Eichardt’s Brand Partners, guests are able to personalise their stay to suit their requirements. Each guest’s itinerary is curated by the Eichardt’s team, whereby one can indulge in local and international designer brands, whereby retailers bring the shopping experience to The Penthouse after hours, allowing guests to relax and peruse through various outfits and accessories at their own pleasure.


Furthermore, guests may also take advantage of the impressive commercial grade kitchen where a personal chef can be arranged to design a one of a kind dining experience unique to the guest preferences. The hotel additionally offers unique culinary offerings within both the signature In-House Fine Dining Restaurant, “The Grille” and “Eichardt’s Bar” offering a more relaxed tapas style menu with ambience and comfort.


“It is a true testament to Queenstown’s reputation as one of the world’s finest destinations.” Cox States. “Our first-class events, warm culture and unparalleled natural surroundings have helped to put New Zealand on the global map, and with Eichardt’s ever-expanding luxury hospitality offering, we’re certainly keeping pace with the likes of London, New York and Paris.”
