NOVOTEL CHRISTCHURCH OPENING

The highly anticipated Novotel Christchurch Airport Hotel is due to open its doors next Monday, almost two years after its initial opening date.

Managed by Hind Management, which also owns and manages the Sudima Hotels chain in New Zealand, the $80 million, 200-room airport will open its doors on November 25.

The airport features modern décor, ergonomic comfort, and high-end facilities complemented by the convenience of close proximity to the Christchurch Airport Terminal.

Sudesh Jhunjhnuwala, the CEO of Hind Management, says his team is proud of the finished product and looks forward to commencing management of the operational hotel.

“Our unique partnership with CIAL and AccorHotels means Hind Management has been involved with this project since conception. Our more than 120 newly employed Hotel team members are days away from welcoming their first guests to the hotel,” said Jhunjhnuwala.

“We have 200 premium rooms over six storeys, two restaurants and bars, conference facilities and a gym, all with expansive, panoramic views across the runway and the Southern Alps. There is no place like it in Canterbury, and we are pleased to bring this project to fruition for the convenience and enjoyment of travellers.”
