Home' Hospitality Business : HB DEC 2016 - JAN 2017 Contents The award-winning Sofitel hotel in Queenstown has unveiled its new-look
top suite, Penthouse No.10, following an impressive $2 million update
completed to coincide with the destination’s peak summer season.
Over the past decade, Penthouse No.10 has been a home-away-from-
home for many movie stars, models and moguls visiting Queenstown.
General Manager Vincent Macquet expressed his delight in the final
look of the Penthouse and is certain that the renovation will extend and
enhance the boutique hotel’s offerings in the luxury market.
“We’re excited to reveal our new-look Penthouse No.10, which will
appeal to loyal and new guests alike. Our designers have worked to
deliver a chic, modern makeover befitting a Parisian-meets-alpine
style apartment. While we’ve updated our furnishings and artwork, and
refreshed our luxe colour palette and finishes, the team also took care
to retain the indulgent French influence and accessible Queenstown
charm of this amazing space which has appealed to and entertained so
many guests over the years.”
Located just a few moments from the heart of Queenstown on the top
floor of the Sofitel, distinct features of the 225sqm penthouse include
sweeping, unparalleled views of Lake Wakatipu, two living areas and
fireplaces, an eight-seat dining table, a private movie theatre, Bose
audio system and latest technology Apple TV with more than 120 TV
channels, plus Xbox Kinect facilities. An oversized patio comes complete
with a six-seater Jacuzzi, perfect for relaxing with a partner or a larger
party of friends.
Penthouse No.10 can sleep up to six guests, and features a walk-in
wardrobe (His and Her’s) with makeup table and full length mirror.
Offering European porcelain finishes, opulent bathrooms feature rain
showers, in addition to a full body length bath boasting a built in TV and
exquisite Hermes products.
A private bar offers a selection of eight different white & red wines
(a mix of French and New Zealand such as Grant Taylor’s renowned
Central Otago Valli label), French Champagne including Perrier
Jouet, and high-end spirits like Grey Goose Vodka and cocktail making
equipment. In addition, a butler is at Penthouse guests’ service to assist
with serving breakfast, and even helping with shopping bags while in
town. The hotel’s talented Executive Chef will personally craft afternoon
canapés daily, served by a butler.
Every guest staying in Penthouse No 10 will delight in a range of
luxury extras, including private airport transfers, breakfast and canapés

treatment of guests’ choice off the menu at Sofitel Queenstown’s
award-winning So Spa. Guests can also choose to have their SoSpa
treatment in the privacy of the Penthouse, or even on the balcony while
