Forbes Travel Guide has recently confirmed the luxury, 5-star status of Cordis Auckland, acknowledging its dedication to providing a heartfelt stay for all travellers.

Cordis Auckland and Delamore Lodge on Waiheke Island were the only two hotels in New Zealand to earn the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Rating for 2022, signifying the properties as one of the very best in the country. Cordis Auckland also received the accolade in 2020 and 2021.

Forbes Travel Guide is the only internationally recognised rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, a world-renowned authority in genuine five-star service. Their anonymous professional inspectors assess based on up to 900 objective standards, focusing on outstanding service to help sightseers choose the world’s best luxury experiences. The only way hotels receive this recommendation is by earning it through their independent inspection process.

“We’re proud that our hotel is included in the list of award-winning hotels, restaurants and spas. The hospitality industry has faced unprecedented challenges, such as Covid-19 and border restrictions, over the past two years. We’ve had to adapt and become comfortable with the unknown, so we are incredibly proud to receive this prestigious accolade, acknowledging our hard work over a tough time for our business,” said Franz Mascaren, Managing Director of Cordis Auckland.

“We have our team at Cordis Auckland to thank for this award; they are our biggest asset. Their commitment to service excellence is second to none, providing guests with expert opinion on what to explore in Auckland, making sure they have every amenity needed for their stay and offering their advice and assistance no matter the request.”

According to Hermann Elger, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide, travel has bounced back significantly, and the hospitality industry has responded by creatively rallying to accommodate the increased occupancy demand.

“While the industry faces some lingering issues, the 2022 award winners proved ready for those challenges and more, demonstrating the best that luxury hospitality has to offer.”

Recently, Cordis Auckland expanded with the debut of its new Pinnacle Tower, offering an additional 244 rooms at the hotel. This extension will help match the inevitable rise in demand as New Zealand begins to welcome back travellers worldwide.
