The Holiday Inn Remarkables Park Queenstown is a renowned luxury hotel nestled amidst the stunning landscapes of Queenstown, New Zealand. Recognizing the importance of sustainability and energy efficiency and providing an exceptional guest experience, the new Holiday Inn provides the perfect home for the adventurers of the south.
Lighting across various areas of the hotel affected the guest experience and comfort. Lighting choices can set the tone for the experience in the lobby, create a pathway while moving to your room, and help you wind down in the social spaces from your long day of adventures.
Luminaires were strategically placed to minimise visual noise and glare. High-quality luminaires and detailed design are required to achieve this. Using ERCO track with Parscan Wall Washers, ENERGYLINE Extrusion, ENERGYLIGHT Troffers, XAL downlights and RZB Track Spots, the outcome is a comfortable and enjoyable space for both guests and staff.
The Holiday Inn Remarkables Park Queenstown underscores how advanced lighting solutions can contribute to energy efficiency and sustainability and enhance the guest experience.
This is what people are saying about it:
"The first word that comes to mind is comfort. From the look and feel of the foyer to the layout of the restaurant and bar, the whole space blends together perfectly, like one big living room. As I arrived, some people were playing board games in the lounge by the reception area while a couple enjoyed a quiet afternoon drink at the bar." - NZ Herald.
"The contract for the building was negotiated on an open-book basis. Communication between all parties was open and constructive, enabling swift decisions to be made to maximise productivity on site. We took care to ensure that long-lead items were let early, providing certainty so our specialist subcontractors could order their materials and get underway. This was of particular benefit with the extensive curtain walling package.
We handed the rooms over defect-free before practical completion and completed the entire project to the highest quality standards and on the programme despite all the challenges of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic." - Naylor Love.
"Designed with floor-to-ceiling glass, a reflection of Queenstown’s natural beauty continues indoors with organic textures throughout. Timber finishes and natural stone combined with shades of forest green and iron ore provide a sense of connection to the landscape and serene calm." - Hospitality Business.
