Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® has been appointed by Arabella Hospitality, a subsidiary of Schörghuber Corporate Group to manage the legendary Hotel Schloss Fuschl in Austria, with a reopening scheduled in late 2023. Idyllically situated 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 and the German-speaking market.
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.
A country escape for Austrian royalty
The full renovation, beginning in 2022, will update the structure and grounds to feature 98 well-appointed 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. Across its fabled history the resort has been acclaimed as an exquisite, tranquil retreat for discerning travelers from film stars to foreign dignitaries. Its silhouette has been synonymous with the grandeur and glory of elegance through time.
This is the second partnership between Arabella Hospitality and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, with the brands currently working together to debut Rosewood Munich. The two groups are committed to protecting Rosewood Schloss Fuschl’s deep heritage while modernizing the resort experience, celebrating the intersection of both old and new, in keeping with Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® guiding concept.
