QT Queenstown opens its doors in New Zealand

Vicky Karantzavelou - 04 December 2017, 00:06

Inspired by the property's natural surroundings - particularly the white-peaked mountains and clear blue lake - Graham developed the lavender, soft blue and charcoal grey color palette following his first visit to Queenstown.

New York - QT Queenstown, the latest opening from QT Hotels & Resorts (and the design group's second hotel in New Zealand), opened on December 1, 2017 against the backdrop of Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables.

The newly built 69-room designer hotel features public spaces designed by renowned hotel and interior designer Nic Graham. Inspired by the property's natural surroundings - particularly the white-peaked mountains and clear blue lake - Graham developed the lavender, soft blue and charcoal grey color palette following his first visit to Queenstown. Timber-lined ceilings, split rock walls and leather accents are a nod to Queenstown's reputation as an outdoor haven. The hotel's public spaces focus on the grandeur of the surrounding scenery, breaking the mold of other QT properties which typically feature generously sized lounges, coffee shops and bars.



Guest rooms at QT Queenstown feature the brand's trademark Gel Beds, floor-to-ceiling windows, designer furnishings, Nespresso machines, Malin+Goetz amenities and Gin Martini kits featuring bespoke 50ml local Karven spirits exclusive to QT. In-room elements are locally sourced by the brand's stylist, Anna Roberts, including chocolates produced by the nearby Remarkables Sweet Shop, ceramic birds in the form of New Zealand's native Tui bird by Steiner Ceramics NZ, screen-printed bed cushions made from pine trees and a mini bar stocked with products from the Central Otago region. The generous bathrooms are outfitted with white marble, stand-alone bathtubs and matte black furnishings. The highest room category, The Remarkable King, is located on the top floor - amenities include charcuterie board and cocktails upon arrival, daily fresh pastry and fruit basket, late checkout and more.

Open since March, the hotel's restaurant and bar - Bazaar Interactive Marketplace and Reds Bar - are set on the sixth floor, offering the perfect vantage point from which to watch the sun set across the Southern Alps. Bazaar highlights the finest Central Otago produce with an array of international cuisines, while Reds Bar boasts the largest selection of spirits and liqueurs in town - its cocktail list adopting local ingredients, spirits and inspiration from the surrounding flora and fauna, as well as QT rooftop herbs.

QT Queenstown is complete with a ski room, housing all essentials for the surrounding winter sport attractions. A short walk along the esplanade leads guests to some of the country's trendiest dining, sightseeing and activities.
