BANGKOK - Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas announces the addition of Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome Hotel to its portfolio, marking the brand’s debut in Italy. The addition of this historic property, which is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, heralds the continued growth of Anantara’s European footprint.
Immersed in the splendour of ancient Rome, Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome sits at the heart of Piazza della Repubblica and has a fascinating architectural history with original elements commissioned by Pope Clement XI for the Vatican in 1705. The building is suspended over the ancient Diocletian Thermal Baths, whose excavated foundations, pools and mosaics can be seen through the lower ground floor. The hotel is also home to one of the largest rooftop terraces in the city, affording stunning views over the skyline.
The 238 guest rooms and suites of this luxury five-star property blend old-world glamour and elegant comfort with the ease of modern amenities. Interior design ranges from contemporary to neoclassical creating the perfect relaxing ambience and base from which to explore the charms of Rome. Accommodation options offer varying configurations and styles with panoramic city views and spacious terraces.
The 11 Duplex Suites boast stunning views over the Piazza and the Fountain of the Naiads. The three Executive Suites offer unique features including a treadmill, Jacuzzi, a steam bath or an intimate terrace for relaxation. Perfect for business or leisure, the two Presidential Suites feature double-height French windows, marble bathrooms and a living room with dining area and kitchenette for intimate celebrations and private dining.
The hotel is home to five unique dining experiences, with both indoor and al fresco venues honouring Italy’s most authentic culinary traditions with contemporary flair. The Lobby Bar is the beating heart of the hotel, and the intimate Ristorante Tazio serves Roman delights paired with Italy’s finest wines. Guests can raise a glass of bubbles at Champagnerie overlooking the Fountain of the Naiads, or drink and dine against the backdrop of the iconic skyline at the Posh Rooftop Restaurant & Lounge Bar, a truly romantic spot. La Frusta is the choice location for breakfast overlooking the Piazza della Repubblica. Dining is led by Chef Niko Sinisgalli who explores the flavours of Italy with exquisite tasting menus.
From large weddings and corporate gatherings to small creative sessions, Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome offers a selection of venues of differing sizes, styles and settings. For business guests the hotel has eight flexible meeting and event spaces that can accommodate bespoke meetings from 20 to 180 people, and up to 550 cocktail style.
Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome is currently undergoing its transition to the Anantara brand. The full suite of Anantara hallmarks and experiences will be introduced over the coming months. The refurbishment, which will start in early 2022 and continue throughout next year, will reveal a glamorous new lobby, a bar with original Art Nouveau décor, a healthy corner and an innovative rooftop space with unrivalled panoramic views. The eclectic cuisine and exciting mixology will ensure the hotel becomes one of Rome’s hotspots.
