Swiss-Belhotel International will open a resort at the popular ski destination Coronet Peak, adding New Zealand to the burgeoning list of Asia Pacific and Middle Eastern nations where Swiss-Belhotel flag flies.

 Coronet Peak is one of the southern hemisphere's pre-eminent ski destinations located in the awe-inspiring alps above the snow sports and adventure capital of Queenstown.

"Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak Queenstown is the closest resort to the Coronet Peak ski field and this lends an exclusivity that is perfect for well-heeled international travellers and aspiring skiers and snowboarders," said Swiss-Belhotel International Chairman, President and Owner, Mr. Gavin Faull.

As a key part of the takeover, Swiss-Belhotel International will fully rebrand the resort including introducing new professional standards of operations and service, and an extensive upgrade of the property to raise its classification to that of an high-quality four-star resort. This will include the introduction of additional conference and meeting space and outdoor hot tubs.

"Queenstown is an immensely popular destination in both the summer and winter months, with June to September seeing droves of snowboarders and skiers descend upon Coronet Peak's 280 skiable hectares and extensive, state-of-the-art snowmaking installations," Mr Faull said. "This guarantees a long season."

Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak Queenstown will feature extensive leisure facilities including spa and sauna, petanque, volleyball, croquet, badminton, ski waxing and drying rooms as well as Queenstown's only ten pin bowling alley.

 The resort's location provides easy access to the Onsen Hot Pools - a natural geothermal hot tub connected to the Shotover River which itself offers an extensive range of water sport activities.

The hotel also features a warm and inviting aprs-ski restaurant and bar, which offers excellent dining, comfort food and an extensive wine selection and tasting options showcasing the very finest New Zealand wines.

The launch of Swiss-Belresort Coronet Peak Queenstown brings the Hong Kong-based group's portfolio to more than 120 hotels, resorts and projects ranging from 2-star to 5-star classifications across Asia, the Pacific, China and the Middle East.
