Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has inked a deal to manage the legendary Hotel Schloss Fuschl in Austria, which will see the property join the ultra-luxury hospitality company’s collection in late 2023, rebranded as Rosewood Schloss Fuschl.
Hotel Schloss Fuschl is currently a member of Marriott’s Luxury Collection portfolio.
Perched on the banks of Lake Fuschl, the graceful, historic property is reminiscent of a fairytale castle and has been welcoming illustrious guests for centuries. The new resort will mark Rosewood’s second property in Austria following Rosewood Vienna’s recent opening and adds to the brand’s robust development pipeline of properties across Europe.
The reimagining of this 15th century landmark not only adds to Rosewood’s unique collection of ultra-luxury hotels and resorts, but cements the brand’s status as a meticulous and caring guardian of some of the world’s most iconic heritage buildings. Landmark structures from Paris to Madrid, New York to London and beyond, have been sensitively restored to former brilliance and positioned to create new and distinguished chapters in their stories.
“We are pleased to continue our growth in Austria, with the addition of this beautiful and tranquil lakeside property. Complementing the opening of Rosewood Vienna, this property expands our presence in this storied destination with a unique resort offering,” said Sonia Cheng, Chief Executive Officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “Reimagining and restoring historic spaces has become an integral part of Rosewood’s brand DNA, and we are honored to be entrusted with continuing the legacy of this notable property.”
Located on the shores of turquoise-blue Lake Fuschl, surrounded by mountains and forests, Rosewood Schloss Fuschl is only a short distance away from picturesque Salzburg, a city famous for its history, culture, music and more.
The full renovation, beginning in 2022, will update the structure and grounds to feature 98 guestrooms, including 46 suites and six chalets. In addition, Rosewood Schloss Fuschl will be home to world-class restaurants and lounges and will also feature Asaya, Rosewood’s integrative well-being concept, with eight treatment rooms, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a fitness centre.
First used as a hotel space in 1954, Hotel Schloss Fuschl was initially constructed as a castle to serve as a country escape for Austrian royalty, with its original structure dating back to 1450.
This is the second partnership between Arabella Hospitality and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, with the brands currently working together to debut Rosewood Munich.
Rosewood Schloss Fuschl will join the brand’s existing portfolio of hotels and resorts across Europe, including Rosewood Vienna; Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco in Tuscany; Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris; Rosewood Villa Magna in Madrid and Rosewood London.
