Rydges brand expands in New Zealand with new Rotorua opening

Rydges Rotorua is slated to open July.

EVENT Hospitality and Entertainment are growing its Rydges brand in New Zealand with a new opening in Rotorua.

NZ Hotel Holding’s Holiday Inn Rotorua will be refurbished and renamed as Rydges Rotorua in July, while the existing Rydges property on Fenton street will be rebranded as a stand-alone hotel under the Independent Collection by Event brand.

“We are looking forward to bringing a fantastic new Rydges offering to Rotorua,” said EVENT Hotels and Resorts general manager for New Zealand operations, Simon White.

Rydges Auckland has reopened following a refurbishment.

“Rotorua is such a special place and we are excited to once again partner with NZ Hotel Holdings to bring quality accommodation, food and beverage, and conferencing options to the area.”

Rydges Auckland has also reopened following a refurbishment.

“We are looking forward to welcoming guests back to Tāmaki Makaurau and sharing our refreshed, casual and modern style with them, as they visit from Aotearoa, Australia and further afield as borders continue to open up,” said Rydges Auckland general manager Vinicius Belotti.
