Set in the heart of Auckland in the northern part of New Zealand’s North Island, the Amora is an oasis of calm in this splendid waterfront city, which boasts two harbours packed with superyachts, many beautiful beaches, and even a park designed around an extinct volcano. The hotel is also perfectly positioned within walking distance of the city’s main shopping and entertainment areas. The hotel offers some undercover secure parking.
The Amora’s accommodation ranges from deluxe double and twin rooms to Penthouse suites are classically styled and decorated in clean, contemporary style, with modern furnishings in a neutral palette of restful tones, many with private balconies and all with kitchenettes and laundry facilities as well as Sky TV. There are writing desks and complimentary Wi-Fi, and some of the rooms have a decadent spa bath concealed behind wooden louvre shutters. For a room with a view, go for the Penthouse, which has superb views from your private balcony, as well as DVD player, stereo mini system, and a fully equipped kitchen.
Relax and unwind in the large outdoor swimming pool or enjoy the wellness facilities, which are set on the terrace area overlooking Myers Park. There is a gym at the hotel, and guests can also have access to the YMCA gym across the road, as well as jogging tracks in the surrounding areas. Or why not indulge in a beauty treatment or facial with Mobile Beauty – a qualified therapist will come to you so you can relax in the privacy of your own room. Beyond the hotel Auckland offeres all kinds of adventures, from the Waterfront, where you can enjoy river dinner cruises to dolphin and whale watching trips, and Sea Life Aquarium, to Auckland Museum, Zoo and the thrills and spills of the Adventure Jet.
The Grill restaurant serves delicious fresh cuisine seven days a week in elegant surroundings ¬– or you can dine al fresco in the relaxing setting of the terrace by the pool. Breakfast offers choices from continental buffet to a full cooked breakfast, while for lunch there are soups and salads and lighter grilled dishes. Dinner might include a Middle Eastern Mezze Platter or Pan Seared Market fish, followed by Spiced Rhubarb Cake or the NZ Cheeseboard – all accompanied by some of New Zealand’s finest wines – from the perennial favourites of Oyster Bay and the Marlborough stables, to something a litte more spicy - fancy a Fickle Mistress? Or maybe Pepperjack Shiraz is more your thing. Either way you won’t be disappointed.
