Around the world, business practitioners, international travellers and celebrities are choosing to stay – often for extended periods in excess of three weeks – in luxury accommodation that fulfils their expectation and desire for privacy, seclusion, and a seamless flow between highly effective professional time and relaxing and recharging personal time…a perfect combination.
Beyond our core focus of providing superbly luxurious short-stay accommodation, we're also thrilled to provide an extended stay option and invite you to take advantage of our special offer.
Book a stay at our luxury Auckland haven and your St Marys sojourn will be further enhanced with a personalised experience on Waiheke, a nearby island, internationally acclaimed by Condé Nast, Lonely Planet and the New York Times as a must visit destination for you and your travelling companions.
What is driving the growth of the Luxury Extended Stay Market?
There is increased awareness of the concept with savvy travel planners recommending customised and immersive “best in the world “experiences for their discerning clients.
Major luxury hotel chains including The Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons and Hyatt are all focusing on this segment, and the growth of high-end Residences, Villas and Bespoke Hotels' sophisticated and unique stays are more evidence of its timely relevance.
In recent years, there has been a blurring of the lines between work, play and socialising for many travellers. Driven by an ease with globe- and time zone-spanning technology, both Baby Boomers and Millennial travellers are comfortable with a lifestyle that effortlessly blends these elements, ideally while living in an exciting urban environment offering immersion in authentic entertainment and cultural activities.
It's been recognised that being able to 'relax at home' improves creativity in business, and performance in the boardroom or negotiating table. Far more effective than staying in a traditional Club Room at a hotel or serviced apartment, an extended stay at a private luxury residence is just the ticket to the 'best of both worlds,' and enables guests to truly experience 'living as a local.'
Who is uniquely suited to experiencing a luxury extended stay at St Marys Residence?
Private leisure travellers looking for a luxury home away from home to recharge and share time together. This could be romantic partners bonding, empty nesters reclaiming their relationship, global explorers taking a well-earned sabbatical in the South Pacific's most exciting city, or friends and multi-generational families travelling together to craft personal memories.
Businesspeople and corporates who wish to use the Residence as their base while in Auckland. Business can be conducted privately and discreetly while enjoying premier accommodation and bespoke hospitality services.
Leaders and Consultants staying in the city or the Auckland region while working on long-term projects.
As a central base for the film, fashion and entertainment industries while undertaking filming, trunk, and road shows throughout the country.
Celebrities and Sporting Stars seeking a private and discreet Auckland haven, with controlled access, while working on creative projects in New Zealand.
Why is St Mary's Residence the ideal extended stay solution for you?
Our offering is truly flexible and highly personalised. Guests can plan their stay with us and enjoy a truly personalised luxury experience, either on a fully-serviced or partially-serviced basis, or completely independent, living as an Auckland local by cooking and entertaining in the Residence’s superb kitchen after a visit to nearby gourmet markets.
We’ll work with you before your stay to tailor the experience at St Marys Residence. Our Lifestyle Concierge can arrange grocery shopping and kitchen provisioning, curated “behind the label” recommendations - and often hard to secure bookings – at Auckland's finest restaurants, and authentic local experiences.
Utilising an extended stay means business people can more quickly build relationships with a city's leaders and key influencers. As established residents of Auckland, we can facilitate this accelerated immersion into the city.
Our expansive multi-level property includes all business and leisure time technology essentials and many versatile spaces for impressive work meetings, high-end product launches, celebrity interviews or fully-catered dinners or cocktail parties – even a wonderful private rooftop terrace, complete with iconic views of Auckland harbour!
We take care of all the details, and yourself and your guests will never have to deal with agents, or sign up for an unnecessary long-term lease.
We're excited about our continued innovation and evolution as New Zealand's most luxurious and private urban stay, and we look forward to welcoming your clients to St Marys Residence.
