New hotels opening across Australia and New Zealand in 2024

Australia’s hospitality sector has experienced a remarkable post-pandemic boom in the past few years, with more than 200 new hotels opening since 2020. This influx of new properties has added 20,000 new rooms to the nation’s accommodations inventory. New Zealand’s hotel landscape is also expanding, with approximately 3,912 rooms in the pipeline and over 1,600 already under construction*.

The substantial increase in supply has significantly enriched the market’s overall product range, and hoteliers are purposefully crafting their new properties to cater to travellers’ changing needs and preferences. In turn, this expands both the business travel and leisure accommodation options for travellers.

In this blog, we explore a selection of the new properties opening in 2024.
