    Price & Redemption Cost


  • Reasonable pricing considering the property on offer
  • Excellent status recognition and upgrades
  • Fantastic dining/drinking options within the hotel
  • Professional staff
  • Beautiful hotel with well appointed rooms & balcony


  • Some might find the location too far from certain CBD addresses.
  • Hotel pool is slightly underwhelming (on the first floor - no good views)

The Park Hyatt Auckland has been highly anticipated for some time. Now finally open, the hotel offers luxury accommodation right on the water and a stone’s throw from Auckland CBD.

Booking Park Hyatt Auckland – Upgrades + $100 Food & Beverage Credit

Whenever I book a high-end Hyatt property, I do so via Hyatt Privé. This VIP program is only available via select travel advisors and offers guests additional benefits otherwise unavailable. I booked the Park Hyatt Auckland via Classic Travel, the only Hyatt Prive partner that allows online bookings (handy). The rate was NZ$360 for one night which included the following:

  • Welcome amenity
  • US$100 food & beverage credit
  • Breakfast for 2
  • Room upgrade
  • Late checkout
  • Earn nights and points towards your World Of Hyatt Status

Park Hyatt Auckland Location

The PH Auckland sits on the edge of Viaduct Harbour, overlooking the marina. While it’s not right in the CBD, it’s not far either, and a short walk will get you right where you need to be.

Hotel Design & Facilities

The hotel features 195 guest rooms and has got the unmistakable Park Hyatt design sense: minimalist luxury. In terms of luxury, this is the hotel to beat in Auckland, and personally, I don’t feel like there’s any other property in the city that comes close.

The lobby is an impressive space with an interesting light installation that represents a pathway to the ocean. Those who appreciate design will feel right at home in this hotel!

The hotel has a spa, lap pool on the first level, and an adequately sized gym if that’s what you’re looking for. The spa is open to all guests and has a range of hydrotherapy and mineral pools to enjoy as well as a sauna and steam room.

The Room: Corner Suite With Balcony

Having booked the cheapest room available, I was upgraded to a corner suite with a balcony. Partially due to the fact I booked with Hyatt Prive but more so because I’m a Hyatt Globalist (thanks to my mattress run earlier this year!) which guarantees suite upgrades when those are available.

Park Hyatt Auckland hotel suite

The room was very spacious with a walk-in wardrobe, lounge area, spacious balcony, and of course, an extremely comfortable Hyatt bed.

The bathroom of my suite was huge and probably larger than the bedroom itself. A massive soaking tub and rain shower fully stocked with Le Labo products are precisely what I would expect in a Park Hyatt, and PH Auckland didn’t fail to impress.

While the room had that minimal Park Hyatt design ethos, local motives, and some nautical touches, it stood out and felt true to the location.Park Hyatt Auckland hotel suite lounge

Dining At Park Hyatt Auckland

There’s plenty of bars and lounge areas for guests and visitors to enjoy; the signature restaurant Onemata is also where breakfast is served in the morning. Breakfast was a-la-carte (my preference) and the eggs Benedict I ordered were perfection!

On the other side of the hotel is the stunning Captain’s Bar serving up a range of drinks from 4pm until late, it’s the perfect spot to meet up with friends or colleagues when visiting Auckland.

Onemata isn’t open during the day, but The Living Room is the perfect spot for a bit of lunch or a snack. It’s a spacious area which just like the name would suggest, feels like a living room. Plenty of seating areas make this a great addition to the hotel.

Service & Staff

I couldn’t fault the level of service and staff at this property, from the personal greeting on arrival to the efficient and professional restaurant staff, my whole stay was frictionless and easy going.

Summing Up – Park Hyatt Auckland

The Park Hyatt Auckland is a must when visiting the city. While some might complain about the location, I felt like the proximity to major attractions wasn’t a deal-breaker, especially since a short waterside walk will get you right into the city.
