Rotorua welcomes first 5-star international hotel

New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty region has welcomed its first international 5-star hotel with the Pullman Rotorua.

“We are so excited to open the doors of the Pullman Rotorua and build on our already established presence in the region, delivering the destination its first true five-star accommodation experience,” said Gillian Millar, senior vice president operations for Accor New Zealand, Fiji and French Polynesia.

The 130-room hotel offers guests panoramic views of the city and lake area and features Barrel & Co Bar and Grill, gym and executive lounge experience.

In addition, Pullman Rotorua provides conference facilities including four private event spaces for 120 people theatre-style, and a boardroom/private dining room.

An official opening ceremony to commemorate Pullman Rotorua’s launch is scheduled to take place in March.
