Big news in Italy: Aman has signed a partnership agreement with Rosa Alpina Hotel & Spa in San Cassiano in the UNESCO-listed Dolomites. Aman’s second hotel in Italy, Rosa Alpina, will follow in the footsteps of Aman Venice, which opened in 2013. This forthcoming Aman has been under the ownership of the Pizzinini family for three generations, residing at the property since 1939.
Under the terms of the agreement, Aman will integrate marketing services and sales, as well as operations on the ground in an initial phase that will span the next 18 months. Evolving over the years to come, and after significant investment, the long-term partnership will see Rosa Alpina become a fully branded Aman in December 2022.
According to Aman, Rosa Alpina very much fits into the brand’s philosophy, offering “subtle glamor, exceptional service and expansive spaces.”
Rosa Alpina’s 52 rooms and suites afford visitors nearly 750 miles of ski slopes within the Dolomiti Superski region, while in summer and autumn, visitors can explore the Dolomites’ valleys on foot, bike or by climbing. The on-site three-star Michelin restaurant, St. Hubertus, serves Italian cuisine. The hotel’s executive chef, Norbert Niederkofler, comes from Aman Venice, where he served as a consultant since 2019. Meanwhile the garden-level spa, indoor pool, gym and hammam provide a place of peace that you can expect as an Aman property.
Rosa Alpina will open for the winter season on December 11, 2020, closing April 5, 2021.
