Inside NZ’s $10,000-Per-Night Penthouse
“Since New Zealand’s mid-1800s gold rush, Eichardt’s Private Hotel has been a fixture of Queentown’s downtown waterfront. Last October, the iconic property added an eye-catching new wing with its modern Eichardt’s Building, the crown jewel of which is the $10,000-per-night the Penthouse by Eichardt’s,” Jennifer Ashton Ryan writes for luxury-lifestyle magazine Robb Report.
“Bringing the high-end luxury of New Zealand’s famous ‘superlodges’ to charming Queenstown, the 2580-square-foot suite is no doubt the South Island’s most upscale accommodation, featuring two bedrooms, a gourmet kitchen, an outdoor kitchen, and a marble bathroom with a sauna.
“Ready to fulfill your every demand is a dedicated team, including a butler, a chef, and a driver (whose Land Rover is at your disposal day and night). But the amenity that makes the Penthouse by Eichardt’s truly worth its five-figure nightly rate is its sprawling terrace – the largest in Queenstown – with views that stretch across Lake Wakatipu all the way to the picturesque mountains of distant Fiordland National Park.”
Eichardt’s Private Hotel is owned by New Zealand-born Melbourne-based Andrew Cox.
