Rocco Forte Hotels

This spring, Rocco Forte Hotels is delighted to announce the opening of two new stunning Italian properties in Puglia and Rome.

A spectacular new resort in Puglia on the shores of the Adriatic coast, Masseria Torre Maizza, opened on 1st May 2019. An original 16th-century masseria that has been renovated to an exceptional standard under the expert eye of Olga Polizzi, the resort marries contemporary chic with thoughtful artisanal details. Groups can enjoy an unforgettable cocktail party at the rooftop bar, a magnificent dinner at the hotel’s fine dining Italian restaurant or even an al fresco dining experience in the idyllic Garden Pergola. The hotel is also the perfect base from which to explore Puglia’s famous white-washed towns, such as Ostuni and Monopoli.

Hotel de la Ville in Rome is our second hotel opening in May. Positioned at the top of the Spanish Steps, with views over Piazza di Spagna and the ochre rooftops of Rome, it couldn’t be better located for guests wishing to discover Rome’s most iconic sights. Inspired by the Grand Tour, the elegant hotel’s original 18th-century features are incorporated within a glamorous and contemporary interior envisaged by Olga Polizzi and acclaimed architect Tommaso Ziffer. With six restaurants and bars to choose from, groups will be able to enjoy a small, intimate dinner in the secret courtyard or a lively cocktail reception at the stunning rooftop bar with its sweeping, citywide views. They’ll also be able to take full advantage of the extraordinary, state-of-the-art spa, which even includes a Mediterranean Salt Inhalation Room.
