Another hotel in Queenstown is opening before Christmas.
The four and a half star 120-room hotel in the new Five Mile precinct will be opening its doors on December 23.
The Sudima Hotel will be the third hotel to open in just a matter of weeks.
Quest Queenstown at Remarkables Park opened at the beginning of November, while Holiday Inn Remarkables Park is expected to open early this month.
Sudima Queenstown Five Mile is the seventh hotel in the Sudima Hotels portfolio, and closely follows the opening of Sudima Auckland. Sudima Kaikoura will launch next spring.
Sudima Hotels chief operating officer Les Morgan said that while New Zealand’s borders might be closed, the country was open for businesses and the company already had interest and bookings for December through February.
It was hoped the hotel would gain carboNZero certification shortly after opening.
Several ground-floor tenants had already moved into the precinct, including Kathmandu, Bivouac Outdoor, Reducrrent, Holly & Ivy and Peak Interiors, with more to open soon.
