Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has planted its flag in Spain with the opening of Rosewood Villa Magna in Madrid.
Located on the capital’s most coveted boulevard, Paseo de la Castellana, the historic Villa Magna has been a local landmark since it originally opened in 1972. Amidst the city’s finest shopping, dining and cultural attractions, the ultra-luxury property is again welcoming guests after undergoing extensive restoration and refurbishment.
Renowned Spanish architect Ramón de Arana led the remodel. A sense of grandeur has been added to the building’s striking façade and entryway into the hotel, with a striking staircase and a pair of reflecting pools that draw attention to the centuries-old, 30-metre-high cedar and carob trees that adorn the property. The Villa’s iconic gardens have been transformed to underscore and maximise the hotel’s green spaces in the heart of the city.
