Rosewood Villa Magna will open in Madrid this fall, marking the arrival of the Rosewood Hotels & Resorts brand in Spain. Rosewood Hotels & Resorts and Mexican hotel and real estate group RLH Properties, which acquired the property in 2018, have announced the design teams that will lead the property’s extensive refurbishment to create a modern oasis of serenity on the iconic Paseo de la Castellana Boulevard.
Four studios have been commissioned to manage the hotel’s complete refurbishment, which will convey the original allure of the former Madrid palace, while also reflecting RLH Properties´ and Rosewood’s contemporary spirit and commitment to residential design. Renowned Spanish architect Ramón de Arana is remodeling the hotel’s exteriors and façade. The interior design is being led by BAR Studio, an Australian firm that has worked on projects including Rosewood Phuket and the upcoming Rosewood Rome, set to open in 2023. ArtLink, a United Kingdom-based company, is curating the hotel’s contemporary art collection. Finally, Spanish landscape architect Gregorio Marañón is undertaking the transformation of the property’s gardens.
Rosewood and the design teams will bring the brand’s guiding A Sense of Place philosophy to Madrid, wherein each property reflects the history, culture, sensibilities, and spirit of each destination in all aspects of the hotel’s design and service.
