Queenstown hotel best ski digs in world


Swanky boutique digs in Queenstown have been named the world’s “best luxury ski resort hotel”. Eichardt’s Private Hotel Queenstown picked up the gong at the 2013 World Luxury Hotel Awards in Thailand this month.

Eichardt’s, with a prime spot near Queenstown’s waterfront, fought off stiff global competition. Eichardt’s Private Hotel owner Andrew Cox says it’s a huge honour, voted for by international tour operators, travel agents and hotel guests. “Queens­town has evolved into one of the best ski resorts in the world and to be named the world’s best luxury ski resort hotel is not only superb recognition for Eichardt’s but also fantastic news for Queenstown and New Zealand tourism.”
