NEW YORK - Newest QT hotel offers dramatic views of Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables mountain range

New York - November 30, 2017: QT Queenstown, the latest opening from QT Hotels & Resorts (and the design group's second hotel in New Zealand), is set to open on December 1, 2017 against the dramatic backdrop of Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables.

The newly built 69-room designer hotel features public spaces designed by renowned hotel and interior designer Nic Graham. Inspired by the property's natural surroundings - particularly the white-peaked mountains and clear blue lake - Graham developed the lavender, soft blue and charcoal grey color palette following his first visit to Queenstown. Timber-lined ceilings, split rock walls and leather accents are a nod to Queenstown's reputation as an outdoor haven. The hotel's understated public spaces focus on the grandeur of the surrounding scenery, breaking the mold of other QT properties which typically feature generously sized lounges, coffee shops and bars.
