In July 2018, New Zealand Bloodstock announced they would be collaborating with DoubleTree by Hilton to open a world-class property on the stunning site at the Karaka Sales Centre.

The hotel opened its doors in March 2022, with the new property debuting 120 guest rooms under the management of DoubleTree by Hilton.

Attending NZB’s sales and inspecting horses will be even easier with the new-build hotel and the accompanying facilities available to be enjoyed by vendors, buyers and thoroughbred enthusiasts.

“Developing the hotel under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand is the perfect complement to Karaka,” commented New Zealand Bloodstock Managing Director Andrew Seabrook.

The property features 120 outstanding rooms.

“Our international clients, globe-trotting tourists and local travellers alike can take full advantage of this first-rate hotel brand and outstanding service.

“Our complex also offers a variety of conference, meeting and event spaces, along with world-class thoroughbred auctions, further enriching the DoubleTree customer experience here at Karaka.”

The hotel features 120 guest rooms including four spacious suites, a restaurant and bar, fully equipped gym, pool and two meeting rooms. The hotel has full access to the Karaka Pavilion which encompasses four meeting and event spaces that can accommodate events from 12 to 600 people.

With the Karaka Sales Centre located just 30 minutes south of Auckland city and in the idyllic destination of Karaka, the investment into DoubleTree by Hilton Karaka raises the world-class Karaka experience to another level.
