Following the recent news of the upcoming Rosewood Rome and Rosewood Hotel Bauer in Venice, the global hospitality brand has set its sights on Milan for a 2025 opening. This will mark the company’s fourth property in Italy, adding to the existing Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, a well-preserved, traditional hilltop villa property in the Tuscany region.
Located near the well-known Via Montenapoleone shopping boulevard, Rosewood Milan is centrally positioned to soak up the electric metropolitan energy of the city and provide effortless access to luxury dining, retail, and entertainment opportunities.
“This development comes with great excitement as we continue our growth in Europe and Italy specifically,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer at Rosewood Hotel Group. “Rosewood continues to expand to destinations where we know our ‘affluential explorer’ guests want to travel. With all its culture and vitality, Milan ticks all the boxes for a Rosewood urban location and it will round out our portfolio of global fashion capitals where Rosewood has a presence, including our iconic properties in New York, Paris, and London.”
Rosewood will set up its Milan hotel in the nineteenth-century Palazzo Branca and Palazzo della Banca Commerciale buildings, which once housed the Italian Commercial Bank. Design firm Studio KO, based in Paris and Marrakech, has been appointed to revitalise the historic structures in the Quadrilatero della Moda, transforming them into a contemporary property while retaining their classical details. It will offer 70 rooms and approximately 20 suites.
Rosewood Milan will also offer the signature Asaya wellness experience within three treatment rooms, a fitness centre, and an indoor pool. A bar and restaurant concept is planned for the hotel, which will feature a courtyard and garden for alfresco enjoyment.
