Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas has introduced a fourth European property and the brand’s first in Hungary. The historic New York Palace Budapest, previously branded as Boscolo Budapest from 2006 to 2017, is reborn as Anantara New York Palace Budapest Hotel.
Situated in the heart of Budapest, the opulent property is an architectural ode to the Belle Époque era, exuding old-world glamour blended with contemporary luxury.
The latest addition joins Anantara’s rebrand of Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome last month. Like the Budapest asset, the Rome hotel was previously part of the sister brand, NH Hotel Group.
Since its construction in 1894, the palatial building has acted as a gathering place for Hungarian intellectuals and is located on the sophisticated Erzsébet Krt boulevard on the Pest side of the Danube River. Designed by Hungarian architect, Alajos Hauszmann, the design features Italian Renaissance, Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau influences.
Anantara New York Palace is comprised of 185 guest rooms and suites, accented by centuries-old art and antiques. The two Presidential Suites each boast 135 square metres of space bedecked with handmade Murano glass chandeliers, custom-designed furniture, luxurious marble bathrooms and signature Italian design features.
Currently undergoing its transition to the Anantara brand, Anantara New York Palace will introduce a full suite of Anantara hallmarks during the first half of 2022. The soft renovation will be completed in Spring 2022 will reveal a glamorous new lobby, stylish rooms and the addition of the White Salon, a glitzy all-day dining restaurant serving quintessential Hungarian cuisine.
The hotel offers four dining options and will open a new Anantara Spa next year.
Upon its completion later in 2022, a new Anantara Spa will offer guests an escape from the city to unwind in four treatment rooms, relaxation facilities include a sauna, steam room and 15-metre heated relaxation pool. Treatments will touch on the healing philosophies of Anantara’s Thai roots with elements inspired by the thermal bath heritage of Budapest.
The new addition to the Anantara stable joins the collection’s European assets – Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort (opened in 2017), Anantara Villa Padierna Palace Marbella (2019), and Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome.
