The Cordis, Auckland was unveiled recently after a multi-million dollar refurbishment to convert the previous The Langham, Auckland into this modern and upscale property in Auckland. The Hong Kong-based Langham Hospitality Group has announced new expansion plans that will make the upper upscale hotel the largest in New Zealand in terms of room count - a total of 650 rooms and suites!
The expansion (through the construction of a new tower) is slated to complete in 2020 and the Cordis, Auckland is set to become the largest hotel in New Zealand in terms of room inventory. The newly re-branded property will reinforce its position as the city’s leading meetings and conference property with its new and extended event space, complemented with exciting food and beverage enhancements.
The new tower adjacent and connected to the existing hotel will house an additional 250 premium rooms and Cordis signature suites. The size of the new rooms will start from 32 square metres and the brand new Club Lounge will feature panoramic views of the harbour and Auckland Tower. The hotel currently has event space in excess of 2,000 square metres, including the elegant Great Room which is one of New Zealand’s largest pillar-less ballrooms. There are plans to add a new event space of approximately 400 square metres that will offer natural light and multiple configurations, allowing for more flexibility in hosting special occasions and key events.
Poised to be the social centre of the community, the city’s award-winning Eight restaurant will feature an additional 60 seats and an improved interactive food display areas. The hotel will also offer a new destination bar with courtyard and outdoor seating to further elevate Cordis, Auckland’s dining experiences. The existing Lobby Lounge will continue to serve its signature High Tea by Cordis experience and a specially curated a la carte menu inspired by the freshest local seasonal produce.
