Queenstown resort Oaks Shores celebrates 10th anniversary with multi-million dollar makeover

September 23, 2016 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Queenstown resort Oaks Shores, located on New Zealand’s popular South Island, is celebrating its 10th anniversary in style, unveiling a modern $1.8 million accommodation makeover to mark the occasion.


Set on the banks of Lake Wakatipu and overlooking the famous, snow-capped Remarkables mountain ranges, Oaks Shores has rejuvenated its entire collection of hotel rooms and apartments over the past six months, presenting guests with a new level of comfort and convenience when visiting the ultimate leisure and adventure playground of Queenstown.

The transformative refurbishment – which extended across the resort’s Hotel Rooms, One, Two and Three Bedroom Courtyard and Lakeview Apartments, and Four Bedroom Penthouses – focused on transforming all guest rooms to reflect a refreshingly simple yet contemporary design, incorporating the natural tones of the property’s picturesque lakeside surroundings.

Each of the 127 hotel rooms and apartments now feature new carpet, reupholstered lounges and chairs, soft furnishings and décor, floor and bedside lamps, beds, timber bedheads and linen packs, in-room safes, and window treatments, which complement the modern kitchens, gas fire places and sleek bathrooms.

Adding further to the resort’s lakeside appeal, guest rooms are drenched in natural light as a result of stunning floor-to-ceiling windows and bi-fold glass doors, opening up onto spacious, private balconies that overlook the crystal-clear waters of Lake Wakatipu, the verdant mountain ranges and their misty peaks.

Chief Operations Officer of Oaks Hotels & Resorts, Mr Mike Anderson, said the unveiling of Oaks Shores’ refurbished accommodation was representative of the resort’s continued success into the future.

“As we celebrate 10 years of welcoming guests to Oaks Shores, it’s with great pride that we officially launch our new-look guest rooms, which we anticipate will inspire a new wave of travellers seeking contemporary accommodation in the heart of New Zealand’s most popular tourist town. We hope this transformation will help to strengthen our position as a leading Queenstown resort as we look to embark on another successful 10 years of business.”


To celebrate Oaks Shores’ contemporary facelift, travellers are invited to stay in a contemporary Hotel Room starting from NZ$260 per night (minimum two night stay).

Occupying a scenic waterfront position and just minutes from the heart of Queenstown and its most popular attractions and experiences, Oaks Shores presents as the perfect base for a winter skiing escape, or summer adventure with family and friends. The resort features an outstanding selection of guest facilities, including Shores Restaurant & Bar, a complimentary shuttle bus service which operates between the resort and the city centre, courtyard with barbeque facilities, gymnasium, sauna, undercover parking and 24-hour reception.
