Auckland's Newest Luxe Experience Is Out Of This World

Feeling like the mid-winter blues are getting you down? Dreaming of that next big holiday? Well we’re going to let you in on an exciting little secret! Hilton Hotels & Resorts are bringing a world-first experience to New Zealand this winter, creating bespoke rooms inspired by Veuve Clicquot’s famous Hotel du Marc Reims in Champange, France!

Originally the residence of Madame Clicqout the woman behind the luxurious brand we all know and love today. Hôtel du Marc is a highly exclusive, invitation only hotel in Reims, France. The rooms are reserved for only the most honoured of guests who come from all over to discover the wines and history of the Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin House.

Working alongside with top New Zealand interior stylist, Michelle Halford of The Design Chaser, a unique and decadent “Hotel du Marc” room will be curated and made available at each of the three Hilton Hotel locations across New Zealand for the months of July and August. Each room will capture the essence of the French space including a few “Clicquot twists” and surprises for guests to discover—how exciting!

“I’m delighted to bring to life this innovative and exciting concept on behalf of Hilton Hotels & Resorts,” says Halford. “Hôtel du Marc is a beautiful and eclectic building and I’m excited to help Hilton Hotels & Resorts reinvent this here in New Zealand.”

Damon Woolf, marketing manager for Hilton New Zealand says: “We are excited to bring a new concept to New Zealanders to enjoy a moment of escapism this winter.

The Madame Clicquot Room at Hilton Auckland, the Ponsardin Suite at Hilton Lake Taupo, and the La Grande Dame Room at Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa include accommodation for two adults, complimentary breakfast and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot on arrival. Guests at each of the three locations will be able to enjoy a unique food and champagne pairing if desired. At Hilton Lake Taupo’s Bistro Lago, an Over the Moon cheeseboard matched with Veuve Clicquot NV will be on offer while at Hilton Queenstown, a three-course menu matched with Veuve Clicquot NV will be available from the Wakatipu Grill along with a flute and facial promotion at the hotel’s eforea spa. Guests at Hilton Auckland can enjoy a specially created Beurre Bosc Pear Sorbet matched with Veuve Clicquot NV at FISH restaurant.

All three locations are now taking bookings but these divine packages are only available to a limited number of lucky guests so be quick because these bookings will be gone faster than you can say “Salute!”
