Heritage Auckland is a charming property situated a short 20-minute drive from the airport. Built in the 1920s, the Art Deco hotel, which used to be a historic department store, has been painstakingly restored to retain some of the original elements. Stay in one of the elegant rooms decorated with an antique French-inspired aesthetic and fully-equipped with modern comforts and amenities. Play a game of tennis on the floodlit tennis court, or take a dip in the rooftop pool with breathtaking views of the Waitemata Harbor. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head to the impressive in-house restaurant, set in a seven-story atrium, and sample the delicious fare prepared with locally-produced ingredients; with a special focus on healthy dining and vegan and vegetarian dishes. Head to the bar and lounge in the evening and unwind with a relaxing cocktail.
