The Pullman Auckland Airport, which opened its doors in December 2023, represents a significant joint venture between Tainui Group Holdings and Auckland Airport. This luxurious hotel offers a blend of comfort and convenience, catering to both international travelers and local visitors. Located just 100 meters from the international terminal, the hotel complements the airport’s facilities, providing a sophisticated resting spot near the gateway to New Zealand. The Pullman Auckland Airport is not just a hotel but a cultural landmark, reflecting the heritage of the Tainui waka iwi.

Its unique location means it seamlessly integrates with the dynamic SkyCity Casino complex, offering guests immediate access to world-class gaming, dining, and entertainment options. Furthermore, Horizon by SkyCity is poised to become a key player in the convention circuit, with unique air bridges and multiple entries connecting it directly to the New Zealand International Convention Centre, set to open in 2025. This connection promises to offer a streamlined experience for both leisure and business travelers, making Horizon by SkyCity an ideal choice for those seeking an immersive Auckland experience..
Joining these illustrious names is the Intercontinental Auckland, opening on January 30, 2024. Positioned at a scenic waterfront location, it aims to deliver contemporary luxury with its well-appointed rooms, suites, and a signature restaurant that showcases a mix of global and local flavors.
