Developers of Queenstown’s newest hotel, hospitality and retail centre, The Sofitel, have unzipped an eye-popping Christmas theme in the men’s loos. Bringing new meaning to the “loo with a view” theme, the second floor men’s toilet set tongues wagging when a six-metre long backdrop to the six stands was unveiled.
The special Christmas backdrop features life-size photographs featuring local models in suitably seasonal dress — each with a full view of the action. “We wanted to do something a bit different in the men’s room when we opened, and hit on this idea,” Perron marketing manager Peter Dallimore says.
“The reaction to the original images led to an astounding level of media interest across the world. The result is we now have world famous toilets that patrons enjoy. “It was always planned to change the images periodically, and we thought men would enjoy a Christmas theme for the holiday season.”
