​Sudima Hotels in New Zealand prove they don’t take their eyes off the horizon as they continue to push forward initiatives to build their business, hotel brands and improve their community.

Sudima Hotels have been in business in New Zealand for over 20 years. They have four hotels operating across New Zealand, with three more hotels in the pipeline, destined for Auckland, Queenstown and Kaikoura.

Speaking with Les Morgan, Chief Operating Officer at Sudima Hotels New Zealand, he confirmed Sudima’s continued dedication to the growth of the business and of their many environmental and social initiatives.

Their commitment to progress has been highlighted as they have recently entered a new housekeeping partnership with ahs hospitality. Sudima found ahs hospitality's values aligned closely with their own, creating strong foundations for this new partnership.

“When looking to find the right housekeeping business partner we found strong communication at all levels with ahs, including at senior level, and found a sense of professionalism.”
- Les Morgan, Chief Operating Officer

“We are excited to be starting this partnership, sharing our goals and demonstrating our values. We have already taken the steps to transition our team members across, and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership with Sudima Hotels.”
- Kylie Maxwell, Executive General Manager

Sudima’s investment in the growth of their business has not undermined their investment in their social and environmental initiatives as Les went on to tell us of current goals and activities.

Les shared that throughout these challenging times, Sudima Hotels have been uncompromising in their values and stayed focused on “doing the right thing” through their sustainability and accessibility objectives.

Sudima Hotels strives to ensure they are “practicing what we preach”.

“We demonstrate our values, and sometimes this is hard to do, but we are committed. One example is being carbon neutral; this is a great achievement.”
- Les Morgan, Chief Operating Officer

One initiative Sudima Hotels continue to explore is their journey to CarboNZero, to reduce carbon emissions at Sudima Auckland airport. Another environmental priority for Sudima Hotels is to become single-use plastic free, having recently become the first group of hotels in New Zealand to discontinue using plastic straws.

In addition Sudima Hotels have partnered with Lab-Be to support increasing global accessibility to New Zealand’s services, products, employment education and the broader economy.

We see a bright future for Sudima Hotels, in collaboration with their parent company Hind Management, they continue to invest in the growth of three additional New Zealand hotels and continue full steam ahead with potential acquisitions within Australia.
