We chose greenstone pounamu to represent the naturally stunning Hotel St. Moritz Queenstown. Like the Hotel St. Moritz Queenstown, each of the 100 hotels from the MGallery collection has a unique story. For the Māori people of New Zealand, life is about respect and love for the natural world. The greenstone Pounamu, only found in the South Island of New Zealand and known as Te Waipounamu (‘The Waters of Greenstone’) is the living incarnation of this love, embraced for its spiritual powers, and reflects the hotel’s own promise to keep nature at its very heart.
The MGallery Hotel Collection features boutique hotels, each with its own original design and unique stories to tell.
