Located in the city’s historic San Marco district, between the Grand Canal and Piazza San Marco, the property will join the Rosewood portfolio following a renovation project which begins this November. The hotel, which dates to 1880, will close during the works, reopening as the Rosewood Hotel Bauer in 2025.
Led by well-known Venice based architect, Alberto Torsello, and renowned interior design group, BAR Studio, the restoration of the existing building will be meticulously cared for, with much of the hotel’s historic framework set to be repaired and integrated into the new design including the original façade, grand winding staircase and many interior elements that are a part of the property’s rich past.
Throughout the restoration there will be an emphasis on sustainability, which will play a highly significant role in the plans for the hotel as the property aims to obtain three sustainability certificates: the Green Pass, Klima Haus and LEED Gold.
Rosewood Hotel Bauer will feature just over 110 rooms, with more than half of the accommodations being suites, including several signature suites and a presidential suite. The property’s food and beverage offerings will include a bistro-style restaurant and bar on the ground floor and a fine-dining restaurant and bar with a rooftop terrace.
The property will also be home to a spectacular rooftop event garden with panoramic views of the city, a luxurious wellness facility, and an outdoor pool with a bar located on the eighth floor.
It marks the seventh property within Rosewood’s European collection which includes Rosewood London, the recently opened Rosewood Villa Magna in Madrid, Spain and the upcoming Rosewood Vienna, opening in Summer 2022.
