Time To Stay At The "World's Best New Hotel"
It's not often; you get to stay at one of the world's best new hotels!
Hotel Grand Windsor, based in the heart of Auckland City, was awarded this prestigious award. Spending some of my last few nights here in Auckland, New Zealand before relocating to a new and exciting city - it was what I needed. Who would have thought packing up your life and relocating countries would be so tricky…(Kidding).
This beautiful boutique 5-star hotel has everything you need, to unwind and take a moment to yourself. There is even a private Jacuzzi available for bookings, to allow you to have that 30 minutes of downtime.
The hotel, located in a 1920s Art Deco-style building, was transformed from a three-star to five-star in just 12 months. The hotel offers a variety of 79 rooms and suites from a Classic, Superior, to a Junior Suite, or my personal favourite the Duchess Suite.
Hotel Grand Windsor, also has it's very own restaurant Cooke's Restaurant & Bar. Immerse yourself in the opulent art deco surroundings as you enjoy carefully crafted dishes designed with sharing in mind. With a strong focus on nourishing wholefoods, the menu also features signature dishes which put a modern twist on well-known favourites from the original Cooke's restaurant in 1928.
You can also never go wrong with there unique High Tea offering, which in my case I enjoy a lot as they offer a Dairy Free alternative. With a wide range of speciality tea options, from T2 - you won't want to leave.
On a side note: The staff and concierge team are just amazing! Pablo, Luciano & Caroline. You will want to ask for them on your next visit.
