With mind-blowing daily food and drink rituals now a mainstay at hotels across the Pacific, you can expect the unexpected… and more.
Nothing brings people together quite like great food… and when paired with exceptional hospitality and curious creativity, it’s really hard to beat. Here are 8 ways Mövenpick hotels do ‘ordinary things in an extraordinary way’.
1. Location, location, location
As a European brand, Mövenpick embraces the vibrant culture of cosmopolitan living. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Australian and New Zealand Mövenpick hotels are within easy walking distance of the very best city attractions – even becoming destinations in their own right. Many of the Southern Hemisphere's highest-rated restaurants and food spots surround the Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer, while Hobart’s third tallest building – the Mövenpick Hotel Hobart – lets you celebrate the most prized panoramas in town. From the Mövenpick Hotel Auckland’s CBD waterfront vibe, to the artistic buzz of the Cuba Quarter’s Mövenpick Hotel Wellington, making a Mövenpick Pacific hotel your base is a brilliant way to explore a city.
2. Choc o’clock
When the clock strikes chocolate, it’s time to tuck in at Chocolate Hour – a superb example of Mövenpick’s ‘indulgence done right’. Make your way to the lobby of any Mövenpick hotel around the world for 60 minutes of delectable chocolate tasting, live chocolate-making and exquisite chocolate artistry, courtesy of Mövenpick’s celebrated chefs.
Hot tip: Heading to Hobart? Chocoholics will also fall in love with the Mövenpick Hotel Hobart, where you can practise the art of ‘Chocology’ – afternoon tea with a chocolatey twist at the hotel’s Tesoro Restaurant. Choose from mouth-watering mini cakes, heavenly tarts, tasty truffles and delicious hot drinks… or perhaps sample one of everything.
3. Relaxing wellness spaces
After a busy day exploring the sights, slow things down in Mövenpick’s spectacular wellness zones. Mövenpick’s modern design philosophy extends from the lobby to the spa, encouraging relaxation at every corner. Communal areas are innovative sustainable spaces that are warm, inviting and approachable, and created especially for human connection.
Hot tips: Our top pick is the Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer with its gorgeous outdoor heated swimming pool, gym, hot tub and sauna, thoughtfully designed with wellness in mind. Or, if rejuvenation and revitalisation is top of your list, take a dip in the 12-metre indoor heated lap pool at the Mövenpick Hotel Wellington or lounge by its side with a good book.
4. Toast-worthy breakfasts
From your first sip of coffee, to the last bite of a perfectly poached egg, Mövenpick hotel breakfasts will have you starting the day as you mean to go on – full of zest and flavour! With each Mövenpick hotel across Australia and New Zealand offering a unique take on the most important meal of the day – from all-day breakfast and brunch at Mövenpick Hotel Hobart, to Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer’s buffet breakfast with an Asian twist – you’ll love waking up with Mövenpick.
5. Indulgent ice cream
As one of the world’s most adored ice cream brands, Mövenpick knows its marshmallows from its mix-ins. So devouring a to-die-for parfait from Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer is a must. This glorious-to-look-at signature dish lets you select a range of ice cream flavours, sprinkling them with toppings like Swiss chocolate tuile, chocolate macarons, double chocolate walnut brownies and chilli chocolate ganache. The garnishes change daily, so your taste buds will never get tired!
Hot tip: While you’re savouring your divine delights, kids under 12 can eat unlimited free ice cream at all Mövenpick hotels across the Pacific. How’s that for ice creamy indulgence?
6. Imaginative dining
Foodies will love the next-level artistry at Mövenpick hotel restaurants across Australia and New Zealand. Fuelled by creativity, imagination, innovation and storytelling, Mövenpick meals are all about cultivating a connection and sharing an experience. Guests are in for a tasty (and visual) treat, as award-winning chefs craft food and drink menus so good you’ll want to snap a photo before devouring . From the farm-fresh ingredients of Wellington’s Forage Kitchen + Bar, to the Asian fusion delights of Melbourne’s Miss Mi, cherish the genius, embrace the flavour and enjoy every bite.
7. Cosy in-room dining
If you’ve had a long day, or simply love the thought of your own space, comfy clothes and wonderful food, Mövenpick hotels’ in-room dining service is the perfect respite. The Mövenpick room-service menu has been lovingly curated by Mövenpick chefs so you can eat well in comfort. Staying in has never been such a treat, thanks to top-quality cuisine mixed with exceptional levels of Swiss customer service. So, wind down and embrace a little luxury before bed, in preparation for the day ahead.
8. Sundae fun day
Every day is Sundae at New Zealand Mövenpick hotels, with an ice cream hotline button on your in-room phone delivering sweet treats to your door 24/7! With flavours like hazelnut praline, red velvet and popcorn caramel, and toppings such as syrups, butterscotch crisp, wafer circles, waffle crumble, marshmallows and macarons, the ‘Sundae Service’ possibilities are both truly endless and utterly delicious.
