Dr. Tanapun Siriphatrawan, Chief Executive and Owner of the Amora Group has launched the Amora brand in New Zealand with three hotels, Amora Hotel Wellington (formerly Duxton Hotel Wellington), Amora Hotel Auckland (formerly Duxton Hotel Auckland) and Amora Lake Resort Okawa Bay, Rotorua (formerly Duxton Hotel Okawa Bay, Rotorua) will all officially join the Amora Group on the 1st of February 2011.
All properties have been managed by Amora Hotels & Resorts for a number of years, and the rebranding of the hotels follows a major refurbishment of Amora Hotel Wellington and a soft refurbishment of Amora Hotel Auckland.
The Club Suite at the newly-rebranded Amora Hotel Wellington
With the completion of an extensive room refurbishment of the 192 room Wellington property in New Zealand’s capital city, it was the perfect time to introduce the Amora brand to travellers to New Zealand.
Dr Siriphatrawan said that throughout Australia and Thailand, Amora Hotels and Resorts are renowned for exceptional attention to detail, a passion for the guest experience, and superior facilities. “So we are delighted to give these three New Zealand properties the Amora name.”
