Naumi Hotels has acquired The Dairy Private Hotel in Queenstown, New Zealand.
The purchase is Naumi’s first acquisition in the South Island and follows the company’s recent addition of two Wellington properties.
“We are extremely excited to be expanding our footprint in New Zealand, especially Queenstown which outperformed other regions and registered the highest growth in hotel occupancy, ADR and RevPAR last year,” said Gaurang Jhunjhnuwala, CEO of Naumi Hotel, Australia and New Zealand.
“Tourism outlook in Queenstown remains very positive with the government’s investment in tourism infrastructure and destination marketing, fuelled by increasing demand from Australia and Asia.”
The hotel which is located in the middle of Queenstown, just a two-minute walk from the town centre, will be refurbished to elevate its design aesthetics and offer a true reflection of the Naumi brand.
The plan is for the refurbishment to be completed by Q4 2019.
Naumi’s chief operating officer Chris McIntosh said Queenstown is the ideal location for a Naumi hotel.
“I could not imagine a city more apt for us to do this; widely recognised as the adventure capital of the world, Queenstown provides the perfect canvas for us to introduce Naumi’s creative flair and intuitive hospitality to travellers coming to this part of the world,” said McIntosh.
The acquisition of the Dairy Private Hotel brings Naumi Hotels’ total collection up to six across Singapore, New Zealand and Australia.
