Mollies: An Auckland oasis

Mollies is our favourite luxury small hotel in Auckland. The discreet, chic accommodation is
located in Auckland’s inner city, waterside suburb of St Mary’s Bay – 5 minutes away form the
city and fashionable Ponsonby Rd.. For guests, it’s a rare oasis of calm in the middle of a city -
something quite unusual for the Paris-based Relais & Châteaux accommodation group, of which
it is a member.

Suite at MolliesRelais & Châteaux is more known for the fine European castles and palaces in its collection, but
Mollies offers the same quality experience and service, but with a uniquely New Zealand style of

This is a romantic hotel - ideal for special celebrations and getaways with a special someone. It
also has an elegant on-site day spa if you really want to be pampered. The spa uses Sodashi
products, which are natural and completely chemical free.

The perfect Mollies experience is to relax with a soothing treatment in the spa’s special couples
suite after a morning of exploring the city. After the facial, massage, or pedicure of your choice,
retire to your room and prepare for dinner.

Mollies has 13 luxury suites. Each has its own individual style, painstakingly created by owner
and textile designer Nicola Guinness. She has brought real charm into the hotel’s private
spaces - our favourite room has a balcony, a fireplace... and a piano.

Enjoy a pre-dinner drink on your balcony and watch the boats on the harbour as the sun sets.
While it might be tempting to have your meal in your suite, or one of Mollies many other private
spaces, the ambience of the Mollies Restaurant is hard to beat. The restaurant’s fine dining
menu and excellent wine list are served in a fairy-tale setting created by dozens of candles.

Mollies is the perfect base for exploring everything Auckland has to offer. No matter how busy a
day you have - whether it’s sailing on the harbour, climbing an active volcano, visiting galleries
and museums, or shopping till you drop - you will always be able to retreat to Mollies to relax
and recharge.
