Australian property management group Oaks Hotels & Resorts has crossed the Tasman to launch into New Zealand with the opening of two new properties — Oaks Shores in Queenstown and Oaks on Hobson in Auckland.
Sales and marketing general manager Michael Owens says entering the New Zealand market is an exciting phase for the company. “We opened Oaks Shores in late 2005 and have had a strong response from the New Zealand market,” he says.
“The expansion into New Zealand is a natural progression for the company which has been rapidly expanding in Australia in the past 18 months. “There is a strong demand for self-contained apartmentstyle accommodation for the business and leisure traveller, and Oaks has made a name for itself in this growth market.”
The company has been managing self-contained properties for more than 10 years, and is one of Australia’s leaders in strata-titled management.
Its portfolio of hotels and resorts has grown to more than 20 hotels and resorts throughout Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.
