Hyatt Hotels Corporation has opened its first hotel in Auckland, New Zealand after COVID-19 delayed its launch.
Australian-born pastry chef Callum Liddicoat is in charge of delivering sweet treats to guests including lamingtons which he controversially insists is an Aussie creation.
He said the hotel is brimming with local guests making the most of their domestic travel bubble but it could be a while yet before Aussies are allowed across the ditch.
New Zealanders will be able to travel to some parts of Australia without quarantining from this Friday.
