Pure Luxury: The InterContinental Wellington


MiNDFOOD checks into the InterContinental Wellington for a grand weekend

When a guest writes on TripAdvisor, “We are not used to the extreme level of service provided by the InterContinental Wellington,” the hotel staff know they’re doing something right. In fact, they’re doing everything right.

Right on Wellington’s beautiful waterfront, the modern and elegant InterContinental Wellington is the capital’s most centrally-located five-star hotel.

That makes it the ideal base for visitors to explore the city’s famous arts and cultural attractions, its fine-dining restaurants and bohemian bar and coffee culture, and its boutique shopping. (Tip: just chat to the award-winning concierge team – they’re more than happy to share their insider knowledge of the local scene.)

The InterContinental Wellington offers 236 guest rooms including the fully refurbished Deluxe and Club Guest Room and Suites.

The capital’s largest collection of hotel facilities includes The Lobby Lounge, an urbane space for daytime relaxing with an extensive range of teas, coffee, and light meals, and Emerge Health Club, featuring a fully equipped gym, spa, sauna and heated swimming pool, as well as valet parking and 24-hour room service.

Dining in the onsite Chameleon Restaurant is an experience that no visitor to the capital should miss. Internationally lauded chef de cuisine Paul Limacher designs an array of dishes that showcase the best produce from the country’s farms, oceans and orchards. The wine list, too, favours home ground.

And the InterContinental Wellington can boast a level of luxury that no other hotel in the city can match.

The Club InterContinental Lounge

Those choosing a Club InterContinental guest room gain access to the personalised service of the exclusive Club InterContinental Lounge, a haven for working, relaxing or recharging.

The new lounge takes advantage of the hotel’s waterfront position with stunning day and night harbour views.

Guests enjoy a hot and cold buffet breakfast, afternoon tea of sweet and savoury treats, and evening canapés with the capital’s finest craft beers and New Zealand wines.
