Swiss-Belsuites Pounamu Queenstown offers stylish, comfortable accommodation with stunning lake and mountain views.

Swiss-Belhotel International, the leading global hotel chain and hospitality management group with 145 operating properties worldwide, has launched Swiss-Belsuites Pounamu Queenstown in one of the Southern Hemisphere's premier year round lake and alpine resort destinations.

The new property brings the brand's Australasian portfolio to 5 hotels and boosts its presence in a region renowned for its adventure pursuits, lakeside beaches and a spectacular skiing.

With 64 self-contained, serviced en-suite studios and apartments, the Qualmark-rated 5-star Swiss-Belsuites Pounamu Queenstown invites guests to enjoy a luxurious modern stay by the shores of majestic Lake Wakatipu. The world-class facilities include under-floor heating, a heated outdoor spa and stunning views of the lake and The Remarkables mountain range – all just a 10-minute stroll from the centre of Queenstown.

The area around Queenstown is famed for its walking and cycle trails, wineries, skiing and adventure activities. Reflecting this sense of adventure, Swiss-Belsuites Pounamu Queenstown offers ski, bike and car rentals, with a complimentary concierge service to organize trips and activities. The hotel also features a children's playground, BBQ facilities and gym access.

Designed in a contemporary style, floor-to-ceiling windows take in the inspiring natural landscape while wooden floors, open-plan living spaces and fully equipped kitchens create a sophisticated homely feel. Studios boast a kitchenette, with all rooms and apartments fitted with a washing machine and dryer.

From early June, guests can drive just 20 minutes to the snowy slopes, with four ski-resorts within easy reach of the hotel. The mild alpine climate also makes Queenstown perfect for hiking, watersports or a round of golf at one of the area's world-class courses. Just an hour's drive away is Lake Wanaka and the outstanding beauty of glacial Mount Aspiring National Park, which is part of the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Site. Around the same distance, Glenorchy's mesmerizing landscape has featured in several global movies, including unforgettable scenes from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Adding to the attraction, Queenstown less than an hour's drive from around 200 vineyards, making it a wine-lovers dream destination.

Swiss-Belsuites Pounamu Queenstown is the second Swiss-Belhotel International property to open in the South Island's resort town of Queenstown, with Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak currently undergoing refurbishments and an upgrade. Along with Swiss-Belsuites Victoria Park, Auckland, which opened in October 2016, this latest launch is a sign of a growing confidence in Swiss-Belhotel International as a hotel management brand in Chairman and President, Mr. Gavin M. Faull's native New Zealand.

"The Swiss-Belsuites brand is all about modern design and quality facilities that create space, comfort and luxury to offer home-away-from-home relaxation for many different types of guests," says Mr. Faull.

"Queenstown is a stunning and unique location and every element of Swiss-Belsuites Pounamu Queenstown, from the decor to the facilities and services, is designed to complement and enhance the unbeatable experiences offered in this incredible part of the world," he adds.
