Ennismore has signed four new hotels in New Zealand with CP Group and will see the opening of four new hotels including a Jo&Joe in Auckland, two Tribe hotels in Auckland, and a Hyde in Queenstown. The hotels will open across 2023 to 2024.
The new properties are part of Ennismore’s expanding collective in the Pacific region.
Gaurav Bhushan, co-chief executive officer, Ennismore, said: “Globally, the lifestyle segment is bouncing back from the impacts of the pandemic quicker than traditional hotels, driven mostly by strong F&B demand.
“This is generating robust interest and has a strong growth trajectory as we strengthen our position in this segment, with concepts that integrate the notion of entertainment and feature restaurants and bars. Our lifestyle brands, with their unique and authentic F&B offering, make each a destination for both local communities and international travellers.”
This partnership will help create 170 new career opportunities, and a CP Group spokesperson has affirmed the company’s commitment “to rebuilding tourism in New Zealand and making a mindful and positive impact on our local communities through investment and job creation”.
