Located in prime position at 67 Customs Street East, SO/ Auckland occupies the former Reserve Bank and home of the country’s gold reserves. As the seventh addition to the SO collection of rebellious lifestyle hotels around the globe, and the first to open in the Pacific region, SO/ Auckland shatters conventions.
Playing on the volcanic theme, guests can choose their room design style from Vapour, Liquid and Solid in all SO Cozy, SO Comfy, SO Club and SO Studio rooms. The hotel is one of the city’s most Instagrammable hot spots, thanks to renowned Kiwi designer label WORLD providing their synonymous flair throughout the hotel as the signature design partner.
Furniture and lighting installations by Dutch design house, Moooi delight throughout the hotel. Most spectacularly, Mixo Bar on the ground floor entrance is home to the hotel world’s first Mega Chandelier created by Marcel Wanders.
The hotel also features the HI-SO Rooftop Bar, with expansive views of the Waitemata Harbour and Rangitoto Island, and Harbour Society, restaurant on the 15th floor - home to French Chef Marc de Passorio, former owner of Michelin-starred restaurant, L’Esprit de la Violette.
And what’s a designer hotel without the most indulgent of spas? SO/ Spa is bringing the big guns (and potions) to answer all beauty, wellness and relaxation prayers.
