The Langham, Auckland has again been honoured as the country’s leading luxury hotel, taking the top spot in DestinAsian Magazine’s 2017 Reader’s Choice Award for the Best Hotel in New Zealand.
The magazine’s readers’ poll was conducted between August and October 2016, with readers casting their votes across 31 different categories designed to reflect the very best of the luxury travel industry, including hotels and resorts, spas, airlines and destinations.
Winning attributes highlighted by voters across the categories included comments on the friendliness of staff and service, convenient location, modern facilities, quality of dining options, comfort, and excellence in design.
The Best Hotel in New Zealand was one of four categories making its debut at the 2017 Awards.
Managing Director Franz Mascarenhas is delighted the luxury hotel has been recognised as New Zealand’s Best Hotel for the second time in a row, having recently won the title at the prestigious HM Awards in Sydney, in September 2016.
“We are extremely proud to be recognised for the luxurious oasis of calm we provide to every guest we welcome through our doors,” says Mascarenhas.
“That we’ve been honoured for a second time as New Zealand’ s best hotel is a testament to the outstanding efforts of all our staff members, and a confirmation that we are leading the industry in providing a luxury experience for our guests that is second to none.”
