This November will see The Langham Auckland, one of New Zealand's leading hotels, rebranded as Cordis, Auckland.

Cordis Hotels and Resorts is a new generation of selected upper upscale modern hotels by Langham Hospitality Group that is devoted to the guests' needs and well-being, catering to both business and leisure travellers.

"Our hotel in Auckland fits the Cordis brand perfectly," said Robert Warman, chief executive officer of Langham Hospitality Group. "It is well located in the vibrant part of the city, a top-of-mind venue for meetings and events, a favourite for special occasions amongst the locals, and we have experienced colleagues who provide warm and friendly service from the heart."

The addition of Cordis, Auckland to the portfolio is a significant milestone for the group as it will be the first Cordis hotel in the Pacific. "Our plan is to introduce and grow the Cordis brand in this region, which is seeing increasing numbers of leisure and corporate travellers, year on year. Each Cordis is individual in style, architecture and design, all of which will be reflective of its location, local culture and is tailored to the requirements of our guests, from corporate travellers, honeymooners and families."

Following the recent renovation of the banquet venues and the hotel's Eight restaurant, The Langham Auckland will undergo refurbishment from 11 July for all 411 rooms and suites, lobby lounge and the exclusive Club Lounge. The refurbishment will ensure the hotel continues to provide the best facilities for the guests in the market. The facelift is scheduled to be completed by February next year.
