Regarded as one of the leading boutique hotels of the world, Eichardt’s Private Hotel in Queenstown has added to its collection of accolades after being voted New Zealand’s Best Ski Boutique Hotel at the inaugural World Ski Awards held in Kitzbuhel, Austria, last weekend.

Eichardt’s Private Hotel owner Andrew Cox said the internationally-recognised award was “an exceptional honour and recognition of our commitment to excellence”.

Earlier this month the property was also named the World’s Best Luxury Ski Resort Hotel at the 2013 World Luxury Hotel Awards, recognising outstanding service within the travel industry.

“We’re honoured to be recognised by our industry peers – not once, but twice – as the best ski boutique hotel in in New Zealand and globally.

“Queenstown has flourished in recent years into an outstanding ski resort, becoming one of the world’s most noted ski destinations and we’ve adapted to this market, providing personalised experiences for our guests during the season,” Mr Cox said.

Eichardt’s has received many global awards for excellence in the luxury travel and hospitality industry. It has been named one of the top eight ‘forever fabulous hotels in the world’ by Tatler Magazine, one of the ‘top 10 bars with a view’ by the Times of London, and one of the world’s top honeymoon hotels.
