Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has assumed management of three renowned New Zealand resorts, adding Rosewood Kauri Cliffs, Rosewood Cape Kidnappers, and Rosewood Matakauri to its collection.
Formerly known as Robertson Lodges, these lodges, each situated in quintessential destinations, now form an integral part of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts’ expanding portfolio.
The ribbon cutting of the three lodges took place in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand at Rosewood Cape Kidnappers, with the Robertson family (represented by the three sons of lodge founders, philanthropists and visionaries Julian & Josie Roberston, Spencer, Jay and Alex) officially bestowing the management of their family-owned lodges to Rosewood Hotels & Resorts.
After a traditional New Zealand Maori blessing, Jay Robertson, on behalf of his family, heralded the three lodges into an exciting new era under the Rosewood management.
These additions mark Rosewood’s entry into the Oceania region.
Rosewood Hotels & Resorts manages a global collection of 33 one-of-a-kind luxury hotels, resorts, and residences in 21 countries.
Each Rosewood property embraces the brand’s ‘A Sense of Place’ philosophy to reflect the individual location’s history, culture, and sensibilities.
“My family and I could not be happier to be partnering with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, as they are truly a revered and professional hospitality brand, widely admired on the international stage,” commented Jay Robertson.
“My parents put heart and soul into these special New Zealand lodges which they started over twenty-three years ago, and my brothers and I believe they would be very happy to see this new relationship with Rosewood develop as we move forward and grow together,” Robertson concluded.
