Rosewood’s New Zealand debut with the addition of Robertson Lodges

Rosewood Matakauri is one of three Robertson Lodges to come uner the Rosewood portfolio.

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is making its first play into New Zealand with Robertson Lodges joining the Rosewood portfolio from December.

As of December 1, Rosewood Kauri Cliffs, Rosewood Cape Kidnappers and Rosewood Matakauri will come under Rosewood’s management.

“New Zealand’s inspiring natural beauty and warm hospitality have truly captivated us, and we are thrilled to embark on this remarkable journey with Robertson Lodges” said Rosewood CEO Sonia Cheng.

“It is with great respect and admiration that we seek to honor the Robertson family’s original vision by further elevating the guest experience offered at each resort with Rosewood’s singular approach to ultra-luxury hospitality.”

The 26-room Rosewood Kauri Cliffs sits within a 6,000-acre coastal estate near the Bay of Islands and includes access to three private beaches, a sheep and cattle farms, a native forest and Kauri Cliffs championship 18-hole golf course.

The 24-room Rosewood Cape Kidnappers is located in Hawke’s Bay on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island, and is considered a haven for golfers and nature lovers.

The 13-room Rosewood Matakauri is located in Queenstown and offers a full spectrum of experiences year-round including snow sports in the winter, and hiking, wine touring, and art experiences throughout the spring, summer, and autumn.

“My family and I are delighted to partner with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts to continue the personal style of hotel management our parents put in place when they opened The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs over twenty years ago,” said Jay Robertson.

“This new chapter is an exciting one as we continue to share the quintessential New Zealand experience that Robertson Lodge guests love so much.”
