Rosewood San Miguel de Allende presents an entirely new level of sophisticated yet quiet elegance to San Miguel, while embodying the culture and creativity of the historic town.
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico (PRWEB) February 2, 2011
Nestled in the mountains just north of Mexico City, Rosewood San Miguel de Allende officially opens its doors to guests this Friday. The new resort pays homage to San Miguel de Allende’s storied past while staying true to Rosewood’s philosophy of providing guests with a memorable experience of unparalleled luxury and understated elegance. Cradled within the historic heart of downtown and just blocks from El Jardin, Rosewood San Miguel de Allende features 67 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites, all of which offer spacious living areas, wood-beamed ceilings, thoughtful appointments and furnishings of the finest Mexican craftsmanship as well as numerous dining options and Sense, A Rosewood Spa®.
“We’re thrilled Rosewood’s newest Mexico resort is opening in the charming and historic town of San Miguel,” said Managing Director Christian Tavelli of Rosewood San Miguel de Allende. “We’re looking forward to welcoming our guests and excited to bring a new level of luxury and hospitality to the destination of San Miguel.”
Under the helm of Executive Chef Carlos Hannon, the resort features a variety of culinary venues, offering a range of distinctive, farm-to-table dishes. In 1826, the town adopted the name “San Miguel de Allende” in honor of Mexican Independence hero “Igancio de Allende.” At the resort's signature restaurant, 1826, the country's heritage is continually celebrated with traditional and innovative Mexican culinary expressions. 1826 has established partnerships with nearby farms and food producers, including Via Organica, a local non-profit organization that works with the culinary team to supply various fresh organic products. Boasting an exterior terrace, the 1826 Tequila Bar offers more than 120 labels of tequila and over 20 different mescals. The perfect place for a pre-dinner drink, the “Tequilier,” or tequila sommelier will help guests understand the process, traditions and folklore behind the vast selections of tequilas.
The Luna Rooftop Tapas Bar serves up savory authentic international tapas that can be enjoyed individually or family style. A tempting, casual place to linger after the day’s pursuits, this al fresco setting presents breathtaking views of La Parroquia, the city and magnificent sunsets. For more casual culinary experiences taking full advantage of San Miguel’s warm sun, AGUA, the poolside restaurant and bar, offers refreshing beverages, specialty cocktails, Mexican snacks and light fare. In addition, the resort presents a variety of personal dining experiences for special occasions. For guests seeking a truly unique and exclusive environment for private gatherings, the resort’s beautiful 2,000-bottle wine room, La Cava, is available by special arrangement. The chef and sommelier will pamper food and wine lovers with special tasting menus and fine wine pairings.
Located on the top floor of the resort's main building, Sense, A Rosewood Spa® is enveloped by San Miguel de Allende’s recognized positive energy. The world-class sanctuary features eight treatment rooms, including a couple’s suite, and offers a full range of therapies, treatments, massage and facials as well as extensive and separate facilities for men and women featuring saunas and steam. Signature treatments not to be missed are the San Miguel Signature Mole, complete with a spice and cocoa scrub, relaxing massage and herbal mist and the Lavendar de Allende, an invigorating full-body exfoliation. PRIORI® Skincare and Elemental Herbology are the exclusive product lines in the Spa. Additionally, a well-appointed fitness center offers state-of-the-art facilities, personal trainers, yoga and Pilates instruction.
Rosewood San Miguel de Allende features 5,140 square feet of indoor meeting room space as well as pre-function space, a rooftop terrace, event lawn and outdoor amphitheater for lectures, musical performances, weddings and other social events. The resort specializes in weddings of up to 150 guests in locations including the Rosewood Ballroom and the outdoor amphitheatre, El Teatro. Alternatively, the resort's Jacaranda and Magnolia rooms are ideal locations for couples that prefer a more intimate indoor setting. Customized gatherings—such as an intimate private dinner, al fresco reception on the rooftop terrace or garden cocktail party—are a specialty.
With respect and reverence for the history, culture and creativity of the colonial city of San Miguel, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site by the United Nations, the resort embraces Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® philosophy and reflects the town’s existing charm, scale and architecture. Days can be spent exploring the cultural riches of San Miguel, including breathtaking churches and museums; browsing through the city's many galleries and mercados or relaxing in one of the resort's unique pools or on-site gardens.
The resort is under an hour drive from Queretaro Airport (QRO), just over an hour drive from Leon-Bajio International Airport (BJX) and a 3-hour drive from Mexico City's Benito Juarez International Airport (MEX).
