Tuesday, 18 January 2022 11:37

Rome should be the fourth Mandarin Oriental destination in Italy following Milan, Lake Como and the pipeline property in Cortina d'Ampezzo.  And in Sardinia Hyatt will debut its soft brand mid-2022. The news of the Rome Mandarin Oriental comes from in the Italian daily Il Sole 24 Ore, which stated that the property chosen by the group should be the Villini Sallustiani, acquired a few months ago by Merope from Colony Capital.

€100 million invested in a Rome villa complex

The Villini Sallustiani is a complex of ten villas set in a centuries-old park and represents one of the capital’s main trophy assets. In order to secure its ownership Merope is believed to have invested €100 million, to which a further 80 million will be added for a makeover.

New branding for the 7Pines Resort in Sardinia

From Sardinia the news is that a hotel property originally planned to be a Kempinski will now be branded by a major US group. Following the departure of the group's CEO, Martin Smura, the Geneva-based Kempinsky pulled out of the deal for the new 7Pines Resort in Sardinia, scheduled to open in mid-2022.

Italy’s first Hyatt Destination property

But now we know that the 76-room, 4-star complex will become a Destination, Hyatt’s soft brand which will thus make its debut in Italy. The Hyatt Group already boasts a portfolio of five hotels located in the so-called Big Four  - Milan, Venice, Rome and Florence - with a total of 500 keys. Among these, the latest arrivals, Jdv by Hyatt The Tribune, and the Unbound Collection Tornabuoni, located respectively in Rome and in Florence, are the result of a deal with Ag Hotels.
