Sudima Lake Rotorua - NOW A 4 STAR HOTEL

By Renee Goodsell - 20 Sep 13

Iconic Rotorua hotel adds another star to its name

Rotorua's largest hotel, Sudima Lake Rotorua, has been upgraded to 4-star status by Qualmark, New Zealand's official quality assurance organization. Effective Wednesday 18 September 2013, the additional half star recognizes the substantial investment that parent company, Sudima Hotels New Zealand, has made in the property over the past year: a complete refit of the restaurant, a facelift of the lobby, bar and function spaces, and upgrades to the guest rooms.

According to the Chief Executive of Sudima Hotels New Zealand, Sudesh Jhunjhnuwala, the elevated rating reflects the high quality of this landmark hotel's renovation.

"I'm delighted that we can offer Rotorua visitors a more stylish and comfortable experience than before," says Jhunjhnuwala.

"I'd also like to thank the team at Sudima Lake Rotorua for their ongoing commitment and professionalism, which I believe played a significant role in the award of this rating."

The upgrade brings the property in line with other hotels in the Sudima group, with the exception of Sudima Christchurch Airport, which is about to undergo a $25 million upgrade that will be completed in 2014. The completion of the Christchurch upgrade will boost Sudima's ability to provide high quality accommodation to business travellers and tourists across New Zealand and Australia.
