Hotel Overview


Auckland’s central business district.

Rooms at Skycity Grand

Luxurious, chic and comfortable, the room interiors at Skycity Grand were designed by internationally acclaimed hotel-designers Chhada Siembieda. Luxuriate in soft furnishings, bold lines and plush bedding, and perhaps indulge in one of the newly refurbished Premium Luxury Harbour View Rooms, flaunting modern interior and stunning views of the Waitemata Harbour.

Food and facilities

Amongst the 18 different bars and restaurants in the vast Skycity complex, we particularly enjoyed The Grill’s contemporary ambience and simple food, whilst the huge buffet breakfast at The Terrace is sure to keep you going for a full day of exploring. The hotel also houses a fully equipped gymnasium, the serene East Day Spa and a 25-metre heated indoor pool.

Activities at Skycity Grand

Adventurous guests can relish in the opportunity to bungee jump off of the 328m Sky Tower - New Zealand’s tallest man-made structure. Alternatively, take a glass-fronted lift up to one of the three viewing platforms and survey the breathtaking panoramic city views. You’re also within a short distance of Auckland’s iconic harbour bridge, and the beautiful Waitakere Ranges.
