Accor, New Zealand's largest hotel operator, has introduced a new level of style and sophistication to the popular North Island destination of Rotorua with the launch of its newest premium hotel, the Pullman Rotorua.

As the first international five-star hotel to open in New Zealand's popular Bay of Plenty region - a tourism mecca famous for its geothermal attractions - Pullman Rotorua is a dynamic and cosmopolitan hotel targeting high-end domestic and international travellers.

Operated under Accor's premium brand Pullman, the new-build hotel provides guests with a choice of five accommodation options - superior king rooms, superior twin rooms, deluxe rooms, deluxe twin rooms and executive suites. Sophisticated and contemporary, all guest rooms at Pullman have comfort front of mind - taking into account the destination's adventure travel appeal - delivering a peaceful and inviting haven for guests to relax in after an exciting day exploring the region.

The 130-room hotel offers guests panoramic views of the city and lake area and features a vibrant bar, gym plus an indulgent executive lounge experience.

Locals and visitors alike can start or finish the day with the very best tastes of New Zealand at the Pullman's own modern brasserie, Barrel & Co Bar and Grill. Barrel & Co Bar and Grill delivers an entertaining dining experience centred around an intimate open kitchen, with a focus on locally sourced produce, a premium grill selection and an impressive craft beer and local wine menu highlighting every wine growing region in New Zealand.

In addition, Pullman Rotorua provides state-of-the-art conference facilities including four private event spaces for 120 people theatre-style, and a boardroom/private dining room catering to a diverse range of business event needs.

Rotorua is one of New Zealand's most attractive tourist destinations, with strong economic growth year on year, a vibrant culture and stunning natural scenery. Rotorua's tourism economy is substantial, with approximately $828 million spent by visitors in 2019. The city is a popular destination year-round for adventure travellers, families or couples, attracting around 1.2 million guests annually, thanks to its rich Māori cultural experiences and the geothermal parks and hot springs enticing visitors during the winter season.

Pullman Rotorua is the second Pullman hotel in New Zealand, joining the existing Pullman Auckland, and part of a network of more than 130 Pullman hotels and resorts worldwide. The new hotel is Accor's 46th property in New Zealand, and the Group's fourth in the 'Geyser City' joining the Peppers on the Point Rotorua, Novotel Rotorua Lakeside and the ibis Rotorua.
