Gift Shop

We have an interesting and intriguing gift shop located in the hotel lobby. Featuring a selection both local and international artefacts, jewellery and art. There is also a limited selection of personal care and pharmacy items available at reception. If you have any queries feel free to contact Reception.


Jet Park Hotel has become quite a talking point with our original works from New Zealand artists Rex Homan, Peter Barker and our very own in-house artist Sonja Herrmann. Guests will see examples of these works throughout the hotel. Maybe the most famous of all, which can’t be missed is our “Fish Wall” situated in the Reception / Lobby area.

Guests are more than welcome to take a stroll through the public areas and will soon notice how we have managed to showcase various aspects of both our New Zealand and African influences. Should guests want a little more of the African experience, original works can be found in the Queen and Superior Rooms, or whilst perusing our corridors, gift shop and Lounge Bar.
