In what could be described as an important milestone in its successful journey, Sudima Hotels New Zealand (of Glamorton Developments Limited) moved its headquarters to the heart of Auckland on Queen Street, last month.
Lawmakers, entrepreneurs and the media were a part of a quiet but impressive ceremony held at its offices on October 28, 2010.
While the new office of the Group effectively enables the Group to deliver services with greater efficiency, much of the discussion at the get together was about its new property currently under development at the Auckland International Airport.
The 150-room, $30 million property, called, Sudima Hotel Auckland Airport is expected to open its doors for business during the first quarter of 2011, well in time for the Rugby World Cup.
Group Chief Executive Sudesh Jhunjhnuwala said the new Hotel would create up to 150 new jobs and conform to the clean and green environment.
“As well as meeting the accommodation needs of the visitors to the Rugby World Cup, Sudima Hotel Auckland Airport will witness the return of the growth of the wider tourism industry,” he said.
According to him, the rapid growth of the Airport ‘catchment area,’ accounting for a number of national and international companies also warranted quality hotel and accommodation facilities.
“The new, four-star hotel will offer top class services and facilities with a Conference Centre. Landscaped gardens, an all day restaurant, an elegant bar and a dedicated ballroom are just a handful of the exciting facilities at Sudima Hotel Auckland Airport,” Mr Jhunjhnuwala said.
The Group owns and operates two other highly successful properties in Rotorua (Lake Rotorua) and Christchurch (Christchurch Airport).
