Staying in style: Club Wyndham Wanaka begins major room refurbishment project

by Ruth Hogan

Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific is undertaking a NZ$2.2 million refurbishment project of Club Wyndham Wanaka’s apartments and common facilities to boost interest among members and drive off-peak occupancy levels.

All 68 apartments will be redesigned and repainted, while furniture, soft furnishings, and carpets will be replaced. All good quality used furniture will be donated to local non-profit organisations and charities.

“Club Wyndham Wanaka is one of 52 properties that are part of Club Wyndham South Pacific, one of the region’s leading timeshare clubs,” said Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific Senior Vice President Acquisitions, Procurement, Property Development and Technical Services, David Wray.

“Club resorts like this one are renewed according to a regular cycle, which is designed to ensure members can continue to expect fresh, updated accommodation when staying with the club.

“The refurbishment at Club Wyndham Wanaka is one of the more comprehensive projects we have scheduled this year and we expect it will utilise an estimated nine local companies consisting of tradespeople and contractors, overseen by onsite partner Nikau Design Group.”

The project, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2023, includes last year’s upgrades to the gym, pool area and barbecue areas. The reception area has recently been refreshed with carpet and oak timber flooring and a mixture of leather and timber furniture with rich velvet lounge-style chairs.
