PUEBLA, MEXICO—Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by Plus Arrendamientos Inmobiliarios, S.A. de C.V. (“PAI”) to manage Rosewood Puebla, which will open here this year and will be the brand’s fourth property in Mexico.
Situated approximately 75 miles southeast of Mexico City, Puebla is renowned for its colonial architecture, traditional cuisine and colorful ceramics. The hotel will be positioned in a location near the city’s main square, the Zocalo, which is Puebla’s cultural, religious and political center.
The hotel will provide 78 guestrooms and suites, a restaurant with outdoor courtyard seating, the Lavaderos de Almoloya bar and a Sense spa with four private treatment rooms. A rooftop bar and swimming pool will have views over the neighboring Igelsia de San Francisco. Within the courtyard stands a 300-year-old chapel, which is available for weddings.
The hotel will be designed by DAS Concepts who will draw inspiration from the surrounding city and its architectural styles ranging from Renaissance to Mexican Baroque. Traditional materials and methods of construction will be incorporated into the building.
Rosewood Puebla will highlight one of the city’s greatest cultural treasures, Talavera pottery, from its classic beginnings to its most modern interpretations. It will also showcase furnishings and works from Mexican artists and craftspeople in a blend of the traditional with the contemporary.
“Rosewood Puebla will be a wonderful complement to our existing Mexican properties,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO, Rosewood Hotel Group. “Puebla is a living canvas and offers rich cultural, culinary and historic traditions in which guests will be able to immerse themselves.”
“Puebla is a colorful, vibrant city that has much to offer visitors” said Jacobo, Jorge and Mariano Martinez Ramos, co-founders of Plus Arrendamientos Inmobiliarios, S.A. de C.V. “Under the management of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, guests at Rosewood Puebla will enjoy an authentic and memorable experience anchored in the proud traditions and accomplishments of Mexico.”
