A staycation the whole family can enjoy

Whether you’re an Aucklander looking for a local family staycay or an out-of-towner looking to explore our busy city, now you can have access to all of the luxury amenities staying abroad affords you without even having to hop on a plane. Enjoy a family vacay at Cordis Auckland with their specially designed family packages to ensure you can have a stress-free holiday, with the kids kept entertained and you in ultimate relaxation mode.

Reflecting the Cordis values of well-being and environmental commitment, their red panda mascot, Cody is at the forefront of their kids programme. “At Cordis Auckland, every guest, big or small are important and we want to make sure they all have a memorable stay with us,” says Franz Mascarenhas, Managing Director of Cordis Auckland. “To help raise awareness of ongoing environmental issues amongst our young guests, we introduced Cody, our red panda mascot, an endangered species with less than 10,000 existing in the world. We hope that Cody can help spread the vital message of the need for environmental conservation, as well as bring our little guests a unique and memorable experience.”

The Cordis Kids journey begins upon arrival with a personalized backpack designed especially for young guests. Cody themed goodies including a dental kit, slippers and a colouring activity book are included in the backpack and during their stay, kids can participate in a scavenger hunt activity with an ice cream to enjoy at the end. There are also child-friendly room amenities and healthy kids’ menus on the hotel’s in-room dining option and when you check in on Saturdays around 3 pm, one of their amazing chefs will greet you with his candy floss maker, getting your holiday off to a sweet start!

Adults, in summer you can make the most of the poolside bar, offering light snacks, lunch and beverages, while relaxing on a comfortable sun lounger watching the kids swim. Kids fussy eaters? No problem - at Eight Restaurant kids can dine on ice cream and chocolate dipped fruit and marshmallows for breakfast, with the pièce de résistance being the white and milk chocolate fountains that operate at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Perhaps not the most nutritious way to start the day, but a great way to earn you brownie points whilst on holiday. A final note to the parents - Cordis offers a babysitting service with 24 hours notice, so you can have some peace and quiet and enjoy the Cordis amenities all by yourself.
