Te Arikinui -Pullman Auckland Airport

Auckland, New Zealand

The hotel is comprised of 311 rooms, including suites, and king and twin rooms; cafe for light snacks and quick coffees; limited meeting room space given the conference facilities at the adjacent hotel; and a signature restaurant and bar that can service the wider airport campus.

Tainui, the iwi of this region, determined that the hotel would be named after The Maori Queen –Te Arikinui Dame Te Atairangikaahu. Working closely with the Tainui master carver a series of carved designs were received and then integrated into the fit-out. The triangular detailed pattern of the Tainui iwi (tribe), referred to as niho taniwha is woven through the design of the fit-out – lift faces, minibar elements and desk panels creating an integrated touchpoint for the guest.
