A contemporary newbuild waterfront hotel is aiming to open in the picturesque town of Kaikōura on New Zealand’s South Island in spring 2022.

This exciting scheme promises to stand out thanks to its spectacular natural surroundings and impressive sustainability efforts, which are focused on minimising the property’s impact on the environment.

State-of-the-art design

Currently under construction, the newbuild Sudima Kaikōura in the north-east part of New Zealand’s South Island is expected to open in the second quarter of 2022.

This environmentally conscious property pairs the architectural and interior design expertise of Kirk Roberts Consulting with the hospitality experience of Sudima Hotels & Resorts. The 120-room development is going down the modular route, with the majority of the hotel built offsite.

Sudima Kaikōura also holds the distinction of being the first hotel in New Zealand to have been awarded carboNZero certification.

A spectacular natural setting

Much of the focus here will be on the breath-taking scenery of Kaikōura and the ocean beyond, which is home to abundant marine life, including whales, dolphins and seals. The hotel promises to provide a range of ecotourism experiences, in addition to celebrating the area’s Maori and European history.

Sudima’s new outpost, which will feature an in-house restaurant and bar as well as conference space, will place guests on the shoreline close to the town of Kaikōura, with views taking in the mountains and sea. The town is located on a rocky peninsula of lush farmland backed by the Kaikōura mountains.

In this wildlife-rich setting, activities include swimming with dolphins, spotting fur seals and going in search of one of the world’s largest flying birds, the albatross. Kaikōura is also internationally renowned as a prime location for watching sperm whales.
