By Thursday, 13 June 2024 13:04

It’s now official: the Villini Sallustiani in Rome, which Merope Asset Management bought in 2021 from Colony Capital, will become the fifth Mandarin Oriental property in Italy. 

The hotel will open in 2026 on a Roman archeological site

The new hotel, scheduled to open in 2026, will follow those already in operation in Milan, Lake Como and the already announced openings in Cortina d'Ampezzo and Porto Cervo. The Roman complex is located in the archaeological site of the Gardens of Sallustio, situated between Via Piemonte and Via Sallustiana, close to Rome’s famous Via Vaneto.

Ten villas with a total of 108 rooms and suites

The Mandarin Oriental Rome will be developed on an area of over 18,000 sqm and consist of ten 19th-century villas set in a park. The villas will house 108 rooms and suites, some with private gardens and terraces. As part of the agreement reached with Mandarin Oriental, Merope will be in charge of the redevelopment and restoration, for a total investment of some €100 million, as well as taking on the long-term management. After long discussions with the municipal administration, the proposal for an exemption building permit was recently approved, with a change of use of the area from residential to hospitality, making it possible to go ahead with the project.

The hotel will have six restaurants and bars 

The master plan for the project and the redevelopment and restoration of the villas, which will preserve their typical 19th-century architectural style, has been entrusted to Bms, while the interior design will be handled by the French duo Gilles&Boissier. The F&B will be entrusted to DimoreStudio, and  P'arcnouveau will be responsible for the landscaping. Guests will find six restaurants and bars, plus the option of dining outdoors or inside the villas. The Mandarin Bar will be located on a large rooftop terrace overlooking the city. The Spa at Mandarin Oriental will offer a wide range of wellness experiences. Fitness enthusiasts will have access to state-of-the-art machines, a large indoor pool as well as outdoor pools in the gardens. Six treatment rooms, a VIP suite, spa rooms and a terrace will complete the wellness offer.
