Opening in mid June this year, 188 on Commerce will be the latest apartment-style accommodation offered in Whakatane, New Zealand's very own sunshine capital. Centrally located in the CBD, 188 on Commerce will provide visitors with a great accommodation option, being a stone's throw from the nearby restaurants and shops. Ohope Beach (voted by AA as NZ's best beach) is only a 5 min drive by car.

Work is well underway for the 22-unit accommodation which will be built to a high quality spec and include spacious rooms with spa baths. A generous communal space will allow guests to relax and enjoy a BBQ in the sun. The build is being overseen by one of the owners, Mark, who is very experienced in the building industry, with a construction background having successfully built 20 motels in his time.

Mark says, "This will be a substantial build and will include an interior fit out by NZ Design who will ensure that the rooms are styled to a high standard and will offer something very special to its guests."
