Hilton Hotels & Resorts is creating a world first experience for a limited number of guests in New Zealand this winter, with exclusive Hôtel du Marc inspired rooms created in partnership with Veuve Clicquot. An exciting concept for New Zealanders to enjoy a moment of escapism, I am thrilled to be curating the rooms as part of this new project. The rooms, which will be a mix of old world sophistication and modern decor, will be available at Hilton Auckland, Hilton Lake Taupo and Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa.
Hôtel du Marc
Originally the residence of Madame Clicquot, the illustrious woman behind the luxury champagne as we know it today, Hôtel du Marc is an invitation only hotel in Reims, France. The epitome of the French ‘art de vivre’, the rooms are reserved for honoured visitors who come from the four corners of the world to discover the wines and history of the Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin House. Hilton Hotel & Resorts’ curated rooms will capture the essence of the French space including a few ‘Clicquot twists’ and surprises for guests to discover.
Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa
Now taking bookings, the Madame Clicquot Room at Hilton Auckland, the Ponsardin Suite at Hilton Lake Taupo, and the La Grande Dame Room at Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa include accommodations for two adults, complimentary breakfast and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot on arrival. In addition to experiencing the Hôtel du Marc inspired rooms, guests can also purchase a unique food and champagne pairing. At Hilton Lake Taupo’s Bistro Lago, an Over the Moon cheeseboard matched with Veuve Clicquot NV will be on offer while at Hilton Queenstown, a three-course menu matched with Veuve Clicquot NV will be available from the Wakatipu Grill along with a flute and facial promotion at the hotel’s eforea spa. Guests at Hilton Auckland can enjoy a specially created Beurre Bosc Pear Sorbet matched with Veuve Clicquot NV at FISH Restaurant.
