Planning a trip to Auckland in Summer?
If you’re not planning it already, you should. Auckland is a stunning city blessed with harbours on both coasts and so many beautiful beaches. It’s also got fabulous bars and restaurants and a world-class dining scene. As New Zealand’s largest city, it has more shows and concerts than any other city, and most of these take place over summer.
You can’t go to Auckland in summer and not spend time in Viaduct Harbour. And the Sebel puts you right in the thick of the action. Built upstairs from some of Auckland’s most popular bars and restaurants and right on the harbour, the views are exceptional. This could be the ultimate summer hotel.
Hilton Auckland is set on a wharf jutting out into the harbour. The views are unmatched. Ferries come and go past the end of the wharf, and Bellini Bar is a magnificent place to sit and watch them cruise by. Princess Wharf is basically all restaurants and bars. But there’s also the Hilton Hotel, a cruise ship terminal, and some very high-end apartments. You’ll love strolling along the waterfront and into Viaduct Harbour on a summer evening. Or taking a relaxing early morning walk for coffee. Hilton Auckland is a paradise in summer.
Heritage Auckland is perfect for Summer because of its rooftop pool. It’s fantastic if you’re traveling with kids and pretty great for adults too. The pool is a great size, and the views from the rooftop are amazing. It’s also within walking distance of both the Viaduct and SkyCity. Heritage Auckland is also close to Victoria Park Market with its many bars and restaurants. This is an excellent hotel for anyone visiting in summer.
Park Hyatt is located where Viaduct Harbour meets Wynyard Quarter. This means that in addition to the 4 dining options in the hotel, it has more restaurants and bars within easy walking distance than any other hotel in Auckland. It’s also super luxurious and right on the water. Park Hyatt has got a great pool with sea views, and you can swim in the Viaduct with the locals too. It’s the perfect summer hotel.
